Perfect Pickles Chips

My son and daughter laughed about a lot of different things in Europe last summer, like smoothies being called smooties in Belgium, bathroom attendants wiping the toilet seat after you exit the stall, and the bright orange forest slugs in Germany that come out when it rains.  My daughter, in particular, got a real kick out of the many different flavor varieties of potato chips in Europe, and took these pictures:

The Perfect Pickles flavored chips got her vote for goofiest.

Other varieties available were: Pepperoni, Pickles, Paprika,
Heinz Tomato Ketchup, and Barbeque Ham.

Not pictured here were also Steak flavored, and Cheeseburger flavored, which we found in France.  We actually really liked the hickory-smoked flavor of the Steak chips, but couldn't bring ourselves to try the Cheeseburger variety.  And the Heinz Tomato Ketchup flavor was definitely a no-go for me.  But then I suppose Europeans would think Nacho Cheese and Taco and Cool Ranch flavors were pretty odd too, wouldn't they?


  1. Ah ah! the fun part of travelling with kids! I had fun reading this article! :-)

  2. Wow! This is the first time I ever saw this flavor.
    following you back.

  3. Hello Sonja! Greetings from the Philippines! I found your blog through Paisley Passions' Wandering Wednesday. I must say I am enjoying your blog.

    I was surprised to see the different flavors of Lays in European countries. In my country, there are only limited flavors of Lays and so as with the Heinz ketchup. Although I love Heinz.

    I hope we could develop a connection by following each others blogs. That would really make me happy.

    Wishing you more happiness and travel with your family! :)

  4. I remember when I was in Australia, I got a burger from Macdonald's... with a pickeled beet! I was so disgusted with it! It was almost as bad as vegemite

  5. They're producing the snack item in a variety of flavors depending on the region.

  6. Germany here. Nachos and cheese dip are available at almost every supermarket in here, but it's not very common to scallop the chips with cheese before serving (only in cinemas and American style restaurants). :)
