Click pic to view comments - Semi-international sighting: Herr's Potato Chips Semi-international sighting: Herr's Potato Chips
Posted: 19:36 Sun 29-Apr-2012. Price: 20p/bag. Location: Home Bargains, the shopping arcade, Ripon High Street. Sub-flavours: Ready Salted; Salt n' Vinegar; "Texas Pete" Hot Sauce.
"James Quin" reports: Found these on a shopping trip on 21/04/2012. No "imported by" label, making it difficult to pinpoint a UK distributor. Though it does say on Herr's official website (the apparently Pennsylvania-based http://www.herrs.com) that they will ship out cases of 24 bags at a time.

...A no-nonsense sighting there from possible first-time spotter "James Quin", though UK crisp enthusiasts are also catered for in the form of: (current Waitrose-exclusive?) PopChips; the battle between Kettle Baked Crisps and Walkers' Baked Stars; plus the similarly oven-origined Jacob's Oddities (NB: that last link goes to Stuart Campbell's website, containing continuous strong language directed at the Commodore 64, and deservedly so in my opinion).

Or, in more substantial savouries, "Marc" seems very excited about the Chixxs A Taste Of The World Italian Pesto Chicken Bites he paid 2 for in Tesco (also available in Indian Masala Chicken Goujons, or American Hot Chilli Chicken Wings). I couldn't quite make out what was going in on his photo, but as "Marc" explains: "Posh Chicken Nuggets - what's posh about them? Well, inbetween batter and breadcrumb... not sure what it it's called, smells mildly spicy, 20 odd minutes in the oven! Verdict: A good honest product, I can see these doing well."

Comment: Herr's make a delicious "Kettle" version of loaded baked potato flavour: well worth tracking down.

Comment: latest PopChips news - low in fat, high in alleged racism...


Ashton Kutcher has been caught up in a racism storm after he put on brown make-up to play an Indian man in an advert for Popchips.

The online commercial was pulled after some viewers said Kutcher's portrayal of Bollywood producer Raj was a stereotype that portrayed the Indian community in a bad light.

In the advert, the actor also plays a hippy, a fashionista and a tattooed Southerner, who are all looking for love through a dating website.

Popchips said: "The dating parody was meant to provoke a few laughs and was never intended to stereotype or offend anyone."
