For the Love of Potatoes

We might have corrupt police and funky water but it's not all bad. Case in point - these bitches to the right - HAM FLAVORED POTATO CHIPS.

LOL Betch ya don't got those back home!

Hammy goodness in a crispy chip - and I'd know - I tried them yesterday and honestly, they TASTE LIKE HAM.

HAM!!!!

I wonder how they'd go with a bologna and avacado sandwhich? Perhaps it would be too much of a clash of meats?

You realize, if they make a bologna chip, I'll die. Just sayin'


(p.s. how is the picture of a raw pork leg on the front not creepy as hell? Ew.)

Ham flavored chips? cool. Ive been to Mexico many times, but somehow I missed those. Do you know they make a cheeseburger flavored Dorito now. It really tastes like cheeseburgers. Hmm,a ham flavored chip eaten with a cheese flavored chip would be good, like a ham and cheese sandwhich. Great. Now Im hungry.

My mouth is actually watering. Gotta be one of the most unhealthy things ever put on the market, but I'd have to try 'em too.

Ahhh.... I dont think I could eat them!!! Does that make me wierd? LOL!!! I've also never seen them here? Do you know what I miss? Salt and Vins...mmm... I can get them in the hotel zone for a wopping 75 pesos!!! Yes, thats $7.50 usd. Soo.... nope!!! Doesnt happen often... tear.

Hmmm...I am glad you like the chips though. I really miss chips from back home!!! LOL!!

Oh Wow!!! I have not seen these here in Navojoa, however, my friend and I were addicted to cheetos bolitas in Queretaro and they were ham flavored. I had forgotten all about those until I read your post.
And some gross details that go with On Mexican Time's post about salt and vinegar chips (you may appreciate this because you have a small child). Yesterday it got over 100 degrees here and my son played really hard all day and in the afternoon I went to kiss his head and honest to goodness he smelled like a salt and vinegar potato chip. :) He went straight into the tub and while I sat watching him all I could think about were chips.

Ham flavored CHEETOHS? Are you guys doing this just to torture me? I've lost 50 lbs in 6 months, and I'm going to lose my mind, fly to Mexico and gain it all back in a weekend just eating snack food!!

Sunshine said...

50 lbs in 6 months.....way to freaking go! OH wow..high five that chic!

OMG! You border livin' folks get all the good stuff! I have not seen the ham flavored Ruffles down here, but as soon I do, you can be sure that I will be partaking of a bag or 2. Or 3. :)

And OMT, I miss salt & vinegar chips too! I craved them for most of my pregnancy. Very sad! :)

Just a thought for those of you pining for S&V chips - sometimes when I'm too lazy to leave the house, I dump (or used to, anyway) a couple of handfuls of chips in a large bowl, add a tablespoon or two of vinegar, put a lid on the bowl and shake vigorously. They're not as crispy as they used to be, but they satisfy the urge.

And thanks for the kudos, Sunshine. Every bit of encouragement helps!

Krissie - It's Ham, how can I not be??? ;D

O.O. They're new, and lol I've seen the cheeseburger chips but haven't been brave enough :D Crazy right?

Upstate - I'm SO proud of you!!! And lol NO you may NOT come to Mexico! :D

O.M.T. - SEVEN DOLLARS!!! SHHHIIITTTT! LOL I'd try Upstates method if I were you - maybe pop them in the oven for a bit after adding the vinegar and you'd get your crispy back! Mmmm I totally put vinegar on potatoes I make in the house :D

I. love. your. blog. Have been feading for several months, wishing you and Chino happiness with your ultracute Daisy. Your writing style is so vibrant and descriptive and just plain fun! This is the best vicarious expatriate blog ever. Just wanted you to know, Lindy.

I find that that all the chips here have like an extra-EXTRA helping of seasoning salt added to each bag. I once bought some Rancheritos for a bus trip and about gagged on the first chip. I also think they kinda over do it with the lime flavoring here. I bought a bag of Fritos to make the super-unhealthy Frito Pie. Whilst preparing the chili, I ate one and thought.. Gee willikers!! Something is different. Low and behold, LIME. Needless to say the Frito Pie was never made.

Gringa-n-Mexico said...

Waitress - WOW !! I'm too self depreciating to feel overly flattered but GOSH that's nice of you! You made my day yesterday and lol after reading it again today I'm all blushing and feet-shuffly and goofy all over again. You're so sweet and such kind words, Thank You so much :)

Raul - LMAO lime and chile!!! EVERYWHERE lolol I don't think they have regular fritos here? ??? :D And have you noticed that the standards for burnt chips are a tad... lower here? LOL lots of burned crisps! :D

Alice said...

so what color is it? because i've learned here in MX that no matter the flavor, the chips here are covered in a hell of a lot of red somethin. but...ham chips...i can't even guess what color they might be. pink?

Gringa-n-Mexico said...

Alice - lolol!! Orange! :D
