Review: Lay’s Wavy Milk Chocolate Potato Chips

When most well-adjusted, liberty-loving North Americans think “chocolate chips,” it’s the classic cookie that comes to mind, not potato chips drenched in chocolate. And yet here we have Lay’s Wavy Milk Chocolate Covered Potato Chips, an idea that seems certain to have come from a skunk-scented apartment in the college part of town. More curious […]

Review: Dairy Milk Chips Ahoy! Cookie Dough chocolate bar

God bless giant multinational corporations. With Kraft’s 2010 acquisition of beloved British confectionary mainstay Cadbury, which subsequently found itself under the Mondelez International brand, both the Dairy Milk family of chocolate bars and the Chips Ahoy! brand of supermarket cookies fell under the control of the same company.

Review: General Tao Chicken potato chips

Take potato chips and combine them with General Tao chicken, a staple of North American Chinese food, and what do you get? An OK chip that doesn’t quite hit the mark. Part of the President’s Choice World of Flavours line of potato chips, these General Tao chips are rated medium on the spicy scale, and, […]

Review: New York Fries’ Butter Chicken Poutine

I’m going to go right ahead and call New York Fries’ Butter Chicken Poutine what it is: fusion food for the Canadian masses. So what is it? First, for our American friends: Poutine is a Quebecois fast-food delicacy that combines French fries, cheese curds and gravy. It’s a life-shortening concoction that’s slowly becoming a national […]
