Do you love the salty goodness of potato chips? If all you’ve ever had the chance to try are plain, salt & vinegar, ketchup (how Canadian of you) and maybe dill pickle (very adventurous!), then you’re missing out on a whole world of weird and wonderful chip flavours.

We’ve put together some of the most unique, most delicious — maybe, not quite — and tastiest flavours that people have found around the world. Would you eat any of these?

France — chicken and thyme

Ah, delicious French cuisine! And now you can get those fine culinary delights on a portable potato with chicken and thyme flavoured chips.

Thailand — ham and mustard

You’ve probably eaten some ham sandwiches and maybe put some mustard on for flavour. How convenient would it be to have that same taste on a chip? If you live in Laos, Thailand you can eat that any time!

Indonesia — nori seaweed

Have you ever had sushi? The green wrapping around the rice is nori seaweed and it’s a very popular snack in many Asian cultures. So much so that you can find nori seaweed flavoured chips in places like Bali, Indonesia.

Cina — cheese lobster

Cheese and lobster? Hmm. Not sure how that one would taste. But this potato chip flavour from China is advertised as “Classic Great Time” on the bag, so it must be good!

England — haggis and cracked black pepper

If you love classic British food then you’re really going to love these Haggis flavoured “crisps,” as the Brits call potato chips. If you don’t know what Haggis is…. well, it’s a traditional pudding with the main ingredient of sheep. Yum!

United States — classic American hotdog

Finally! Two great foods come together for the ultimate chip. Only the United States would realize “hey, we eat hotdogs and fries together — let’s just make them one food!” Completely genius!

China — cucumber and potato

We head back to China where they’ve mixed two vegetables into one snack — cucumber and potato. Seems a bit odd, but the bag says it’s “cool & refreshing” so who are we to argue?

Ukraine — fried sausage

From Ukraine, we get the taste of fried sausages in a convenient chip format. Yum!
