Sandwich and Crisps



I don't think the Atkins diet ever made it to the UK judging by the heavy consumption of carbs at every meal. I haven't been able to escape sandwich and crisps which is a very popular combination at lunchtime in London. The good news is that both the sandwiches and crisps are available in a wide range of fillings and flavours.

I had roasted pepper, goat cheese and caramelized onions in a toasted sandwich yesterday from an organic cafe in Clerkenwell. I couldn't resist getting a bag of Salty Dog Crisps which were delciously crisp and had a wonderful sea salt flavouring. These crisps are made from the best potatoes and are sliced thick and loaded with flavour for maximum bite and punch. And they come in all sorts of interesting flavours like Jalapeno and Coriander, Roast Beef (!), Sea Salt and Black Pepper, Strong Cheddar and Onion, Ham and Mustard etc. Frito Lay could get some great ideas from these guys!

The truth of the matter is that American potato chip company have no adventure at all. If people don't get their stinking barbeque or sour cream and onion chips I think there would ne a war!

I always thought British crisps were more exciting (and more worth eating) than the rubbish we get here. Even though Im partial to sour cream and onion, Id much rather go for jalapeno or thai red chili!
