TO Canadia

Paul the homeowning Canadian offered me an open packet of snackfood.
"Here! Try a 'Crispers'. They're not chips and they're not biscuits," he said.

Well, they have a good texture. And they aren't oily like... um, Paul, whAT FLAVOUR ARE THESE?!?

"Pickle!"

Yes.
The bit you pick out of a big mac and flick onto the ceiling? Yep, a snack food flavoured like American pickled baby cucumbers.

Does not go with beer.

Other species of crispers useful for preventing death through electrolyte starvation after fighting...

Pickle crispers (well, pickle chips in general) useful for throwing away.

Taffy - you write about them as if there were MORE THAN ONE BRAND of pickle chip.

I'm not even going to research other brands of pickle flavoured snacks for fear it will encourage someone to make more.
