Freaking finally! Ketchup-flavor Crisps!

Went on an innocent trip to the grocery store the other day, and discovered that FINALLY, my international gustatory vice of 5 years ago has made it to the States. Ketchup-flavor potato chips, and many other savory combinations, have been long available outside of our culinarily (is this a word?) backwater country.

Traveling out of Roma-Termini countless times yet years ago, ketchup-flavor crisps were always in my bag. Because of this, when I crunch through a bag of these I am transported to musty Trenitalia compartments, or the smoking car of the 7am Eurostar through Bologna (this was before the smoking ban on the Eurostar). Thus, I've truly missed having these chips!

Granted, Herr's is an obscure brand, but it is a step in the right direction! Perhaps one day this nation will embrace prawn cocktail-flavor crisps, but let's take it one step at a time and start with a minority president.
