I thought the first part of your reply was to Bill for his heathenish suggestion about some carrot thingie.
Nah, the only good vegetable crisps are beetroot.

But, why are Beer Nuts not nuts, over here?

Something I had been wanting to try since we moved here was 'boiled peanuts' they are sold everywhere, even on the side of the road on carts. I bought some last weekend...YUCK!!!! it's like eating fishy tasting slime

The fried ones are pretty good though

Countdown to a diet thread... 3 - 2 - 1 ...


Back on topic - in the 70s, Hostess came out with fruit-flavored chips (crisps) in Canada. Orange, cherry, and grape. They only lasted a few months on the market due to their unparalleled vileness. There are mentions of them on the web, but I haven't found any pictures.

omg, here we go... Go on, enlighten us Cretans.. what could be wrong with the popcorn (which is surely a new world food?).
Maybe it's the water you're drinking with it?

Had the Pringles Tomato Ketchup - not a patch on Walkers Tomato Ketchup I'm afraid - not nearly enough flavour.

Have a thing for popchips - original or salt and vinegar - don't write them off cos they look like flat rice cakes - they are really good and crispy.

Not that I am eating any crisps at the moment - am on the 'OMG a stone and a half in 2 years diet' !!!!!

If you have it on its own it tastes like cardboard, and if you add butter it tastes revolting. We have toffee coated in the UK, its yummy. When you buy it in the UK you are given a choice of sweet or salty. The first time I went to the cinema out here the guy looked at me like an alien when I asked form sweet popcorn.

I buy some toffee and nutty stuff from F&E to take to the cinema with me.

Salt, I reckon.

The stuff I had said Beer Nuts, but it was Chex Mix. I guess they make both.

OK, so there's nothing wrong with American popcorn, except that you personally don't like plain popcorn.

Toffee popcorn is probably what we call Carmel Corn here. It's not typically sold at movie theaters (just different traditions) BUT you can find it in lots of places. There is one in the shopping mall here that you literally almost DIE from walking past because the cooking smells so good.

If you like sweet & salty together (different people, different tastes!) try Kettle Corn flavored sometime.

But dont' go bashing the popcorn.. I've eaten it for dinner enough times to know it's the bomb.

+1

I don't need to add popcorn to The Master List.

Plain, air-popped popcorn is a decent snack. The sugary, caramel, toffee stuff is candy. Blech.
