周二旅游-Tourist Tuesday: New Chips on the Block

One of the marvelous things about living abroad is how interesting and funny things are the first time you see them.  Although the novelty has long worn off, I was smart enough to snap photos the first time I went to a grocery store in China.  Now there are many interesting things in a grocery store in China: an aisle full of myriad types of soy sauce, massive bags of rice, containers piled high with unwrapped meat, and fish swimming about waiting for a hungry customer to instigate their demise.  But for a food that doesn’t hit too far from home, we have chips.

In America, we have Lay’s chips with the flavors Sour Cream & Onion, Barbecue, Ranch, Salt & Pepper, etc.  Aside from the “Do Us a Flavor” contest entries, these all sound pretty normal.  In China, flavors are a bit different…

And, of course, American Classic Flavor

Sadly, I didn’t get shots of the Numb and Spicy Hot Pot Flavor or the Finger Licking Braised Pork Flavor.  I’ve even heard rumors that there’s a Blueberry Flavor over here somewhere, but have yet to come across it!
