Foreign Grocery Friday: The Spaghetti Bolognese Chips of Paris
Mmmm, chips. Mmmmm, spaghetti bolognese. Mmmm, spaghetti bolognese-flavoured chips. What?
Yes, spaghetti bolognese chips are what we found ourselves eating in Paris recently. Mainly out of morbid curiositywe assumed they’d be inedible. But in fact…
The taste: Well we’re not going to say they were amazing. They weren’t. But hey, it’s very rare that a chip is inedible. We’ve had tomato-flavored chips before and these were similar, just with a kick of herbs, which actually wasn’t bad. Still, we won’t be rushing to buy them on our next trip. No, we’ll go for the cheeseburger or pepperoni pizza one next time. Mmm, cheeseburger chips.
The price: Cheap. Like 2-3 Euros for a full-size bag, to satisfy the snack appetites of several people.
Where to find them: Corner stores around Paris, likely next to the "fromage" flavor. They really aren't all that rare, but it does take a little open-mindedness to go for these over the more recognizable chip varieties.
