How good are they?? Kettle chips as well plus you might never go ack to Hershey's after mainstream uk choccies. Hope mr marks and sparks is a decent rebound after joe...

Hahaha, do you say 'mobile' yet?

Did you try them? I don't know if I would.
I could go for a Cadbury flake bar.

Kerry- I didn't try the crisps (yet), but I might. I've had a "try anything" approach. Hence, the new gym membership :)

Linda- I'm not saying mobile yet either. I have been saying "toilet" rather than restroom or ladies room when asking for directions.

Naomi - I have to agree, the choccies can not be beat here. The desserts all around are fantastic and I'm working my way through them.

What fun to live vicariously through you.
So much fun to see how you are getting on over there.
All the differences and new flavours.....

Yes, I remember. Of course they can't call them chips as that is what they call fries. Oh I remember bringing "smarties" home for my children. They weren't too impressed as thought they tasted just like m&m's. I sounds like you are settling in quite nicely. Hugs, Bonnie

When we go up to Canada we always have to get ketchup chips for the kids- this time I saw all kinds of interesting flavors- got a bag of Morrocco chips and gobbled them up long before we got back to the kids!

I am not so adventurous so probably would pass on meat flavored chips. Hope you're loving your time in London Julie!

Looking forward to your London adventures Julie! Loved all the photos!

And chips are chunks of potatoes not thin slices! And crisps are always in little bags -- never the super human size bags we sell here!

Welcome to the UK Julie. I think three years is more than enough time to turn you into a honorary Brit. Cheerio!
