Show me a person who doesn’t love chips, and I’ll show you a psychopath. Chips are one of the most delicious snacks and once you start eating them, it’s very hard to stop. And the beauty of chips is that different cultures have their own unique flavours. Here are a few of the most delicious chips around the world which you need to try at least once in your life.
1. Chips Oman (Oman)
If you’re ever in the Gulf, be sure to try out the most famous chips in all of Oman.
2. Banana chips (Kerala)
These are a specialty in Kerala, and you don’t want to get anything branded. Just get a regular packet of banana chips from a local store and enjoy!
3. Lays Cream Cheese Salmon (Thailand)
This exotic flavour of chips that seems very Western strangely originated in Thailand. Try these on your next Bangkok trip.
4. Kakaji Chips (Delhi)
If simple potato-ey goodness is all you want, forget the big brands and buy a pack of Kakaji chips anywhere in Delhi.
5. Habañero (Japan)
This mouth-scorching flavour is made from one of the spiciest peppers in the world. So, of course it comes from Japan. Try at your own risk!
6. Murukku (Kerala)
They may not strictly fall under the chips category, but these yummy and crunchy snacks are a superhit in the South. Again, just buy something local and skip the brands.
7. Pringles Sweet Paprika (Germany)
It’s hard to go wrong with paprika, and these chips from Pringles don’t disappoint. They’re only available in Europe, though, so bring a few packets back!
8. Tyrrell’s Sausage and Mustard (Britain)
Trust the British to have mustard and sausage flavoured chips, but we’re not complaining! These are delicious.
9. Calbee wasabi (Japan)
It ain’t Japanese without the wasabi going right up your nose and making your eyes water! If that’s your jam, give these a shot if you’re going to be in Japan anytime soon.
10. Prawn chips (Bengal)
The next time you’re in Kolkata, be sure to buy a pack of these. They take a little more effort as they have to be fried in oil, but it’s worth it.
11. Chipsy Kebabs and Stuffed Vines (Egypt)
Chipsy are the Egyptian Lays and are inspired by the local cuisine. The must-try flavour is Kebabs and Stuffed Vines!
12. Walkers Worcester sauce (UK)
Walkers is a very well-known snacks brand in the UK with many flavours. Their Worcester sauce-flavoured chips, however, stand out among the rest.
