I Believe in Ferries

What: Prawn Cocktail Pringles
Where: Between Belfast and Dublin
Cost: £1.99

In North America these chips would not be flying off the shelves. We are not used to a potato chip selection that includes roast chicken and steak. Fortunately "crisps" in the UK are often meat-flavoured and this one was particularly exotic. We were all pretty tired which is usually a bad time to be tasting new, potentially gross foodstuffs but I threw caution into the wind and popped this can open in the van.

The verdict: not actually gross.

It would be more accurate if these chips were labeled Prawn Cocktail Sauce flavoured, since they really just taste of tomato sauce. Maybe a slight prawny smell, but definitely not too fishy tasting.

If you're Canadian and like Ketchup chips than I would suggest these as a nice alternative.

7.8/10

DON'T YOU DARE SULLY THE GOOD NAME OF KETCHUP CHIPS WITH YOUR PRAWNY FILTH!

UK chips are the weirdest. I guess that's what happens when you live in a place where beer is cheaper than water.

mmmmm. I love prawn cocktail crisps. I practically lived on PC Quavers along with milk chocolate McVitties biscuits for the last part of my stay in the UK. They certainly have some great junk food over there.
