Chinese potato chips
I know that I have already covered the Lay's Natural & Cool and Natural & Warm line of potato chips in exhausting detail, but while researching the subject I found a few more flavors that I wanted to share. Long story short, Chinese people like different flavors than Westerners. Some flavor examples on sale in Chengdu the other day are below. They include: Italian Red Meat Flavor, American Classic, Seaweed, BBQ Steak, Prawn, Hot & Spicy and Crab. Obviously this is in addition to the aforementioned kiwi, blueberry, mango, lychee, cucumber, cherry tomato and lime-flavored potato chips.
I can't lie, it's all very intriguing. I have a pack of the BBQ Steak ones in my bag to be opened in case of emergencies (and by emergencies I mean 14 hour train rides).
