Q:  When is a snack food not a snack food?

A:  When it is an entire meal.

A quick browse down the crisps aisle (that’s potato chips to us) of a British grocery store reveals something interesting.  Whereas Americans content themselves with chips flavored with cheese or onions or barbecue sauce, possibly sour cream or honey mustard, Britons seem to want an entire meal reflected on their chips.  I’m only  sorry that I didn’t think to take a photo of the packet of turkey with dressing and gravy crisps when I saw it.

In the interest of full disclosure, however, the last two photos are of crisps imported from Spain.
