Ear Crisps are a potato crisp range manufactured to resemble a human ear. Startle your friends as you place a bowl of them in the middle of the table for after dinner nibbles.

One in a hundred packets has a special hidden collector's pierced crisp, with a silver ear- ring attached.

       may I nibble on your ear?

       no you may not! We have elephant ears, here in the U.S. They are shaped like, get this...elephant ears.   

       They are nothing but fried dough sprinkled with powerdered sugar. See link. I think.

       My dog enjoys pig ears.

       mmmmm +
jaksplat, Mar 25 2007

       Thanks a lot [blissmiss]. Now I have to go raid the fridge. I'm not gettin' any skinnier you know.

       Availible in fine flavors such as Original, Ketchup, Salt & Vinegar, Evander Holyfield, and All Dressed.

       As long as we're imitating body parts I have a great idea for hot dogs.
JSand, Mar 25 2007

       Wow, 7 whole annotations before a Tyson reference, that's more than double what I expected.
hidden truths, Mar 25 2007

       Ah, but none of the others are a serious proposal like mine ! I'm already fielding calls from Golden Wonder and Walkers, and I've got Heinz working on a range of complementary leaking wax flavours.

       ... must have been an imposter then - serious enquiries only please !
xenzag, Mar 25 2007

       Well wags, about that suggestion of a link. Let me tell ya, I found stunning examples of elephant ears, copied, pasted, and then sat there like an idiot and waited.   

       Nothing nada zilch. When they finally appeared on the bakery, they linked to nothing, nada and zilch of course. (The origin of I wonder, ponder and then move on.)   

       My soon to be old housemate's computer is wearily slow and loses most of what I write and randomly duplicates stuff I probably shouldn't have bothered to blather oink, sorry meant on, about with to begin with.   

       As Dr. Bob so eloquently puts it, "errgh". (I think, forgive me if I misrepresented your wording.)   

       Moving to Manchester tomorrow, new housemate, new p.c. new eveything. (Manchester USA, unfortunately. //hides head in shame//.)
blissmiss, Mar 27 2007


       I vaguely recall what you're talking about, and found a [link] that looks like what you remember.   

       A New Mexican version is called "Sopapilla", and puffs up like a pillow (hence the name.)   

       Don't be too ashamed about Manchester, MA, USA; I know a few people who have moved there, and seem to have thrived. Best wishes on your new situation!

       I used to enjoy eating "Haman's ears" when I was a boy in Israel, every year at Purim. (link added)
TheLightsAreOnBut, Mar 27 2007

       "Wow, 7 whole annotations before a Tyson reference, that's more than double what I expected."   

       So you'd expected, like, between one and three? I don't believe you *expected* any, hidden_truths. Surely no-one would EVER give a moment's thought to the possibility of how many references to Tyson an idea for an ear-shaped potato snack would generate!! If you did, I tip my hat to you. You are as mad as a snake and clearly have way too much time on your hands.   

       How many references to Mick Jagger would my lip-shaped corn-based snack idea throw up, d'you reckon?

       Inject a little blob of brown residue in the centre for that realistic waxy look.
theleopard, Mar 27 2007

       csea, I am sooo sorry to say, but it's not in MA, it's Manchester CT. So thriving may not be the word I'd use ;-)
blissmiss, Mar 27 2007


       Best wishes, anyway. I don't know anything much about Connecticut!
csea, Mar 28 2007

       sounds delicious +
benfrost, Apr 01 2007

       Cauliflower flavour?
Ling, Apr 05 2007

       Good luck with the move [bliss], I hope you can pronounce Connecticut ok.
wagster, Apr 05 2007

       Why not? AS kids we loved wax lips and my kids had gum ball "eyes" and what about the "gummy worms"...I can envison all kinds of neat shapes for chips....noses, nipples, to name just a few.
