Very personal question

It is possible that only the UK guys will understand this one.

Please don't say which you voted for.

In the UK, what you US guys call fries, we call chips. (what you call chips, we call crisps).

There was a TV advert a while back (you call it a commercial?) for oven chips or microwave chips. Two small girls are eating this particular brand of chips, when one says to the other "which do you prefer, daddy or chips?".

The girl sits and thinks for a while before deciding "daddy".

Her dad comes over and takes a chip. She looks all downhearted and says "chips".

So, will the [SAS] go all emotional and choose their dads over the hollow material value of chips? Or will they dump the old emotional attachments and shoot for the instant satisfaction of chips?

well yes its rather funny but i knew most of that as should some of us here especially with the chips part such as fish and chips is all i have experience with. But i voted before anyway and vote right i voted for chips cuase my dad would eat all my chips and so he would then go out and buy me another bagto replace the bag he ate , btu would again end of eating that bag half the time. so by default i would say chips. but microwaved yuck

Microwave chips are usually alright. For anyone who's never had fish and chips, you're missing out on something massive.

Microwave chips? frickin' 'ell.

Let a Belgian give you advice on how to make good chips: Just clean some potatoes, cut em in to pieces (I prefer thin bars), put them in a frying pan, take em out. Put em in again, and there you are: yummi chips.

Microwave chips.... Crazy british!

Oh come on Rasa, like I can honestly be arsed to do that when I want chips! Microwave chips are great cos they take about a minute and they taste pretty good. Cleaning potatoes + Frying stuff = far too much washing up too! Dirol

Assuming the deffinition of what we call fries, and what you call chips is the same when pretaining to "microwave" chips. who's bright idea was it to microwave'em when you can oven reheat?? Or are microwave chips a bit diffrent then I'm obiously thinking? (Or just another diffrence between US/UK, bags of at lest a lb or more in our case for "frozen" oven reheat fries)

i live off junkfood. you should se my bookshelf as there is only food and no books. about fries there are microwave fries here too, spidey not sure if this helps but the idea was you store fries in the freezer and then stick them in the microwave for a few minutes for hot cooked fries where as reheating might take a long time and would be inconsistent each time.

Hmmmmm a large crock pot full of beans, cooked slowly all day with some fatback in it. A skillet full of cornbread, an onion, a pot of stewed potatoes, some corn on the cob just out of the garden and some Tennessee smoked ham. If that don't set your salava glands to salivating, you aint living right. Now if I had some homegrown tomatoes to go with this, I would think I had died and gone to heaven...... Oh yea, and to wash all this fine cuisine down, about a half gallon of good ole sweet tea.. Southern Style, not that Northern stuff either. And for dessert a fat slice of hot apple pie with a scope of vanilla ice cream..... But of course this is just one of many fine meals served in the south... Ya'll come get some now, ya hear!!!!!!

I believe chips is a product originating from Belgium, BTW. The Germans tried to steal credit for chips, as they have with hamburgers, but that was an effort fiercly fought.

That's absolutely right.

Besides, If you make em the Belgian way, they are actually crispy. It's not possible that microwave fries are crispy!

Yeah Micro Chips are definitely a bit tight when it comes to quantity. Couple of boxes usually does me fine though. Wink

Hehe a discussion about potatoes and french-fries/chips.. Well..

All know the Danes make the best potatoes. The world known potatoes comes from a little Danish island called Samsø (samsoe).

Well if you want the best french-fries/chips you buy the brand called Chef Dupont. (Don’t know if you got that brand over there, but they make all kinds of good french-fries/chips products.

Why is it called French fry?

In the US, it is "would you like some French fries with that burger?"

only those who will IMAGE(http://miniprofile.xfire.com/bg/co/type/2/sasrand.png)
