'kay o_o confused. I have three people, one from England, another from the U.S, and another from... I dunno, but not Canada lol... telling me they don't know what THESE are:

http://www.canadianfavourites.com/v/vspfiles/photos/Lays001-3.jpg

How can anyone NOT know what those are? That's my #2 favourite chip after salt and vinegar, and I'm sure it doesn't just exist in Canada XD That would be depriving everyone else!

Have you seen this chip before o_O?

I haven't seen them.. but I have seen other, weird flavors.. mainly Doritos...

Like... Hamburger, Hotdog, Taco and etc. I've had tomato chips, so they might taste like ketchup chips. xD They weren't that good, so I probably won't ketchup chips either.

THERE'S A KETCHUP FLAVOUR O_O?!

wow I'm late.
I have never seen that kind of bag in my life. EVAR.
I probably wouldn't like it, but I can't say since I've never tried it before.

I've only seen the Old Dutch (http://thriftyliving.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/old-dutch-chips-2.jpg) brand, but yeah they're good. :) I also like the dill pickle kind too. More people seem to know the ketchup flavor better then the pickle one. That's just around here though.

Yusshin

In Canada, seasonings include dill pickle, ketchup, all-dressed, salt and vinegar, barbecue, salt and pepper, bacon, chicken, fries and gravy, and even curry. In Toronto and Vancouver, Lay's offers wasabi chips to appeal to the large Asian populations.[10]

I hate Dill Pickle. It's gross >:|

i've heard of them being popular in canada, they're unheard of here in the US, at least where im located. im not sure why its so hard for us americans to associate potatoes with ketchup, seeing as we're french fry hogs, but other americans i've brought it up to are repulsed by the idea of a ketchup flavored potato chip. i'd like to try them, myself.

i think someone mentioned pickle flavored chips in this thread...pickle flavored ANYTHING is heavenly

I know for a fact that in England, they're called Walkers.

http://www.britishdelights.com/images/CW18.jpg

And the tomato ketchup variety has been around for ages, but they only have it on sale for a limited time.

This has to be the weirdest flavour ever:

Beat me to it, they where actually quite nice. The ketchup ones that is. Are Walkers and Lays the same brand because there logos are almost identical.

Also, to UK people, anyone tried the new Walkers flavours? The Garlic Baguette ones are really nice. :o

I've never seen a Ketchup variety of chips in my life. I've seen a lot of chips, but this certainly isn't one of them. Never seen one in a gas station anywhere, a super market, small grocery store, anywhere. Where on Earth do you find these things?

Ketchup chips are Canadian-only. Or maybe they're a British chip variant since Roku says Britain has them too.

But I was surprised to first hear about it too. I'm not a fan of the flavour at all, but it's SUCH a staple flavour here in Canada (ie, you go to a party and they've got regular, BBQ, all dressed, and ketchup--always) that I just assumed it was everywhere. But my American friends NEVER knew what I was talking about, haha.

Last I checked, they didn't have all dressed chips in the US, either. That's my favourite flavour by far. D:

Yeah, they're the same. For some reason they're Walkers over here, even though the company is Lays.

I haven't yet, but most of them sound kinda gross... XD; Wouldn't mind the spag bol or the teriyaki chicken ones though. c:

Some people have seriously never heard of Ketchup flavour? It used to be my favourite...

Now I've grown partial to the new Sweet Chili. The new Regular with less salt is great, too. I hate really salty things. I like Barbecue and Salt & Vingegar, too, but not my favourites.

Dill Pickle and the Sour Cream & Onions are just nasty, though. D:

I've only seen ketchup chips a few times, once courtesy of the fact that my sister's husband was originally from Canada. The other times have been limited-time specials (I do recall seeing some Herr's ketchup chips sold in the US some years back).

They're actually quite good, IIRC.

However ketchup chips are really foul imo

In Miami we eat something like Ketchup & Chips. You take Chips, fry them and then you put ketchup on it. They are kind of soft and hard. A little bit like french fries, but they are SOOOO GOOD.

They're not particularly spicy, at least not to the level of Flamin' Hot Cheetos, but they do have a distinct flavor to them...very much like real salsa verde (the green salsa that most Mexican restaurants serve that isn't as spicy, but is a bit zestier than the red stuff.)

Yes Walkers Tomato sauce flavored crisps, I haven't seen those in years! Although, I'm not to keen on that flavor, but there's other flavors they did for a competition Like Builder's breakfast flavor, Onion Bhaji flavor even chocolate flavored crisps. I'm suprised how they come up with all these flavors. You know what amazed me even more they had a Fish and Chips flavor, here's a pic of some of them they made:

Maybe because they are only old in your country?

Don't be such an idiot and remember that not everything you own, we have heard off.

Yusshin
May 12th, 2010, 02:21 PM
Caption Fabio, obviously if you're surrounded by something that people adore and is made by a very popular and famous brand, you'd naturally assume that the flavour would be available everywhere, or that the product is everywhere.

Especially food. I can imagine there are flavours of unknown brands that are around that I don't know about, but I assumed that such a wide-known brand had its flavours dispatched in every country. It's a perfectly normal assumption, and obviously if someone tells you that they haven't even heard of the FLAVOUR (not just the brand's flavour of it, but the actual general flavour in itself), you'll want to investigate and see if it's just that person, or if it's on a national scale.

Around here, ketchup chips are well-known. The US being our neighbour not too far away, I'd have assumed that it'd be there, too.

See? Normal assumption. No one's an idiot here.

Thanks.

I don't understand tomato ketchup crisps. In all honesty, I can't say I understand crisps at all, they're mostly based on... well, simply anything that a potato is not. Cheese & onion is a classic sandwich filling, after all, so why not just eat the real thing?... I can't say I'm fond of that cold wet texture between two sheets of aerated flour either, but it seems rather depressing as much as it is beneficial on terms of convenience for human society to substitute for every minor preference.

I've tried ketchup-flavoured chips, but they weren't amazing. I can't remember the brand now, but I think it was a Washington State-only brand. I'm not too sure =/ It was old-fashioned and such. A quick search on Google and I found a brand with a package that looks like the one I got them from; it may have been Tim's...

Anyway, I've actually tried ketchup on potato chips - but only old-fashioned kettle chips. Nothing like Lays or Pringles or anything like that. I like that better than the ketchup flavored chips.

I used to love Ketchup flavoured crisps! Also Walkers are doing a competition where there is loads of flavours of new crisps and people have to vote to see which country has the best flavour. Flavours include; Flame grilled steak, Scottish Haggis, Welsh rarebit, Japanese Teriyaki Chicken, South African Sweet chutney, Brazilian Salsa, Spanish Chicken Paella, Dutch Edam Cheese, American Cheeseburger, Australian BBQ Kangaroo, Italian spaghetti bolognese, German bratwurst sausage, French garlic bread, Irish Stew and English roast beef & yorkshire pudding. Some VERY weird flavours of crisps there haha. Personal highlight of weirdness for me goes to Australian BBQ Kangaroo! Kangaroo... People actually eat that? lol Also does anyone remember the Pizza flavoured Doritos that were out? Do they still sell them anywhere?

Well for the longest time there have been differences with names regarding fried Potatoes. You have England and some of Australia which calls Potato Chips "Crisps", and Americans use the aformentioned term "Potato Chips". Then with French Fries, some people in England call them "Chips" (which I find rather confusing). But it seems that with most important/popular things, it has several names.

So not only are there bound to be differences in names, but also preparations. To answer your question: No, I've never heard of them, but that may be because I'm not a fan of flavored Potato chips (Only classic for me ;)). But it sounds interesting. My guess is that they are more popular wherever you are.

Yusshin

We've had Ketchup Crisps over here in England before, but only really as limited editions.
Even though I'm not the greatest fan of anything other than ready salted (or salt & shake, cause it's awesome XD), I tried a couple of those ones they did for the competition though. I was looking forward to the Hoi Sin Duck (or what ever it was), but it was disgusting.
I haven't tried the new competition ones yet, but some of them sound quite nice. Spag Bol, BBQ Kangaroo I'm looking at you.

I'm afraid we don't. We're not big on different regions' chip flavors. Ketchup is the most well-known exotic flavor we have.

Ketchup chips taste like ****. Salt and vinegar are the best tasting ones.

Ketchup chips. Mmm...Sweet and tangy. They taste better than ketchup! :P
Actually, this stuff appears randomly here and there in the US. I know for certain that Philly often have Ketchup chips scattered around the city. I haven't seen salt and pepper flavored chips in a while though, not since middle school.

They're in the Northern states, too, to accommodate Canadians who move close to the border.

I think they're available in New York, too. Not sure.

Ketchup chips are in America, too. Maybe they're not everywhere like salt and vinegar or something, but we definitely have them. I don't think the people who haven't seen them have traveled America enough...we have a variety of fatty foods, lol. I've tried ketchup chips before, and they're really good!

D: @ the squirrel flavor...I love squirrels! :(

I know poutine is available in Canada, especially Quebec, as a "special" side-dish. Apparently, it's patented so that other countries can't sell poutine at McDonald's as a replacement for normal fries because it's a Canadian (specifically: Quebec) specialty. Or, it may just be the company trying to show exclusitivity based on region. Not sure lol

In any case, speaking of ketchup chips, a similar thing is ketchup-flavoured powder for popcorn. Do you at least have that? Not a fan of popcorn, but the flavour does exist >_> It isn't as good as the chippies, but hopefully that at least exists in America.

Though I doubt :s

Hah, squirrels are vermin here (grey ones anyway) they've become such a menace to the red squirrels that if you catch one it's illegal to release it, you have to either kill it or keep it. Apparently they taste quite nice.

Oh man the one week I was in Quebec I loved the Poutine there. If I had one reason to go back it'd be for that

I've had them and they're actually my favourite, but I've only seen them back when I used to live in Maryland . . . I have to get some from my grandmother in Pennsylvania. @_@;

There were only Herr's in Pennsylvania and Maryland, but in Wisconsin there are none at all. Dx

You've been lookin' in the wrong places obviously. Or for the wrong brands. Barrel o' Fun makes some interesting flavors at some of its plants that you can't even buy in the US. I think they have a ketchup flavor among those.

Well, last week I came across a bag of ketchup chips... ironically enough in the discount supermarket in town that hasn't been renovated since the 1970's. Only had one bag left so I was sure to pick it up.

And yes, they were as good as I remembered. Wish I had a bag right now...

No I live in America and they have Ketchup chips here. Along with pickle chips as I previously stated.

Also, why a thread about ketchup chips is so popular is beyond me, but I guess I've seen stranger things.

Wait, ketchup is just salt and vinegar with added sugars / tomato.

Well, never heard of them. If they're found in Canada or in U.K only, it's quite obvious that I won't find it at my side of the world. xD;

Well, I don't bother with any other flavor apart from this one, tbh. Even if the 'ketchup' flavor might have been there, I dunno if I'd ever try it or not. The thing is, I'm just too obsessed with 'magic masala' to try any other flavor.
