Potato Chip flavor I want to see

We all know there are some weird potato chip flavors out there, especially when you start talking to people who live in different regions or countries from you. For instance, I never knew that Dill Pickle and Ketchup were somewhat unusual for a time in the United States. And I've heard about Lobster and crab chips in the Maritimes/New England and Poutine in French Canada and a variety of other taste sensations.

Now, I've tried some weird chips(I remember Cheeseburger-flavored chips from back in the early 1990's for instance), but there is a flavor that I always wished someone would make, and I can't find it listed on the rather definitive site.

Stroganoff: It is sour cream, it is beefy, it is a little mushroomy. I mean, it seems like a slam dunk flavor to me, and since there is a Hamburger Helper called Potatoes Stroganoff, and in Brazil, Beef Stroganoff is sometimes served with potato chips, well, it makes the fact that there isn't a straight out of the bag version a little weird.

Is there any flavor you've wanted to try in chip form(Potato, Corn or otherwise)?

I'm for boring original. I like sour cream and onion, or bbq, and chilli chips too.

I remember when they just released Soy Chicken chips they were extremely popular and sold out quickly. I thought it would be good but I didn't like it, it was too strange, soy sauced chicken aren't supposed to be crispy. :D I'm not imaginative.

But if I have to suggest something: BBQ lamp chop might make a good flavor. T-bone steak -- although beef doesn't seem very popular around here.

Other unusual flavored snacks come in the form of corn twists (Twisties), nowadays they have Salmon, Chicken Tandori, Thai Tom Yum, etc.

We have corn twists here too... but Salmon and Thai Tom Yum sound interesting to say the least.

I'd like one that tastes like you're only eating the skin of from a piece of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Mmm, greasy goodness. Fries and Gravy weren't as good as you'd expect. Well, in retrospect, yes they were.

And yet Spicy Curry was a lot better than I expected. I really reminded me of the potato samosas I used to buy from an Indian market.

I take it you've never seen this then(even though it was discovered by "jeremy")?

It's Me... Maven said...

My WASband was fond of Vinegar and Salt potato chips...

Tom Yum flavored chips? How do I get my hands on some of those??

I think a spicy wasabi and teriyaki combo chip would be nice:)

How about bacon and onion flavored chips?

Well, Canada may have wasabi potato chips coming down a mainstream pike pretty soon.
