Salt n' Vinegar? Mmm, yummy! Or wait, do I want Cheese & Onion? Or maybe these Sweet Thai Chilli ones look good. How about Smoky Bacon? Oh no look, they've got Barbecue flavour too! How will I ever choose?

Maybe the above example's a little extreme but sometimes you don't just want one flavour of crisps. Maybe there's no-one around you can share with, and you don't want to eat 2 bags of crisps because that's just greedy.

Why not market bags of crisps with a mix of 2 flavours in? You could choose 2 that go together - like for instance Barbecue and Smoky Bacon, or Tomato and Sausage. Or a couple of flavours that contrast: Salt n' Vinegar and Roast Beef.

Or you could go the whole hog and have multi-flavours, like when someone tips 7 bags of crisps into a bowl. Every mouthful would be a surprise!

ah bugger, when I posted the link it wasn't subscription... [calum, Mar 03 2005, last modified Sep 10 2006]

To augment Calum's subscription link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walkers
See the paragraph under "Flavours" verifying the limited edition dual-flavour snacks produced during the Comic Relief promotion of 2005. [jurist, Sep 10 2006]


       Make meat and sauce flavors and mix them and make recipes like jelly bean recipes.

       I'm no fan of potato chips (crisps) but this does seem a reasonably good idea. Not really sure it's an original invention, though.

       They're called "all-dressed" in Canada. Commonly available.   

       What ever happened to the the 'flavor' mfd, I wonder...

       Crash...Hey! You got your Brussel Sprouts in my Lasagna!
No..You got your Lasagna on my Brussel Sprouts!
Crunch.. Mmmm. Fabulous!
Two great tastes that taste great together.. Dual-Flavor Potato Chips.

       but that's just one flavour as in salt 'n vinegar. nice range of crisps that.

       Since your tastbuds are on the top of your tongue, how about having the two surfaces of each crisp coated with a different flavoring? Then, you could just orient each chip the right way before eating. So if you felt like having more of one flavor that day (for some reason), you could.

       I'm sure Walkers have just launched exactly this, but I can't find any info on it. There was a tv ad for "special edition" packs of dual flavour crisps a couple of weeks ago.

       see calum's link, wagster.

       I can't believe the timing of that! Right, I'm off down the shop to try and find some humble and pie flavoured crisps...
kmlabs, Mar 04 2005

       good thinking peterj.
po, Mar 04 2005

       [calum] EEEURGH! Baked bean flavour, I actually tried these for a dare from my sister, and it still gives me nightmares!
froglet, Mar 04 2005

       [froglet], breath slowly and think "Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper Kettle Chips." Aaaah. That's better.
calum, Mar 04 2005

       Okay people, having done some hands-on research, I can now report that the Walkers Comic Relief crisps are NOT two flavours in the same packet - they are in fact new limited-edition flavours based on 2 of the company's existing flavours - such as:   

       Cheese & Bacon Quavers Cheese & Pickle(d Onion) Bacon & Ketchup Barbecue Chicken.   

       I have to say I'm disappointed - but at least it makes my idea valid again...
kmlabs, Mar 09 2005

       Ohh, how about teriyaki and guacamole flavored.
Vegan_Princess, Sep 10 2006

       They have this now, doritos that have two flavors per bag.

       //...like when someone tips 7 bags of crisps into a bowl. Every mouthful would be a surprise!// - actually only 85.7% of mouthfuls would be a surprise. One seventh of the time you should be able to correctly guess the flavour of the crisp.

       //One seventh of the time you should be able to correctly guess the flavour of the crisp.//   

       Only if you actually chose to make a guess, which you probably wouldn't do if you wanted a surprise.
