Bizarre Chip Flavors You Won’t Believe Exist

It was around 2008 in England when I first started noticing potato chips, or should I say crisps, that made me stop and do a double-take. Since then, the trend of selling weird or unique chips seems to have spread worldwide…and upped its game. So I present to you some of the most unusual potato chips around the world.

Lay’s Creamy Garlic Caesar Salad

This is healthy, right?

Lay’s Cool & Refreshing Blueberry Flavor Chips

Walkers Cajun Squirrel Flavour Potato Crisps

Yes, these existed once. British snack food manufacturer Walkers tested out a range of new flavors for customers to taste and vote on. While the Cajun Squirrel flavor may have raised the most eyebrows, it came in second to last in the competition. Other flavors included: Builder’s Breakfast, Onion Bhaji, Fish & Chips, Crispy Duck & Hoisin and Chili & Chocolate.

Calbee Borsch Flavoured Potato Chips

Leave it to the Japanese to turn a hearty Ukrainian beetroot soup into a snack food flavor. Something tells me this borsch won’t warm you up on a cold winter night though.

Lay’s Wavy Original Potato Chips Dipped in Milk Chocolate

Okay, to be honest, despite sounding wacky, this one actually sounds good. They had chocolate dipped potato chips at an Amish market I went to once (as well as chocolate-dipped bacon) and they were surprisingly good. Sweet & salty is a nice combo and the chip gives the chocolate a nice crisp to it. Think chocolate-dipped pretzels.

Lay’s Bacon Poutine Chips

I love love love me some poutine. But I don’t see this working. Unless this bag of chips comes with an instant gravy packet and pouch of fresh cheese curds, it’ll never have the je ne sais quois of warm, gooey, melty poutine.

Lay’s Cappuccino Flavored Chips

Because who doesn’t love chips with their cappuccino? Yuck.

Tako Octopus Flavored Chips

This one doesn’t surprise me. My boyfriend loves his puffy shrimp chips and these kind of fall in the same boat.

McClure’s Pickles Bloody Mary Kettle Cooked Chips

Yes, yes and yes. A little bit of spiciness. A little bit of pickle-liness. All zapped into one thick cut salty potato chip. The only thing that would make this better is if it came with a liquid Bloody Mary.

Lay’s Natural & Cool Kiwi Flavor Chips

Natural & Cool…hmm…bet you can’t guess where these are from.

Lay’s Hot & Sour Fish Soup Flavored Chips

It’s described as “intense & stimulating.” Another interesting Chinese addition to the list of crazy chip flavors. I am very curious to taste this one though.

Doritos Crab Cream Gratin Pizza Chips

Wrapping up this list, I wanted to share one of the most bizarre chips I could never imagine. You just can’t make this up. Innovative in pretty much everything, the Japanese dared to be bold with coming out with a Crab Cream Gratin Pizza chip flavor.
