New Zealand surprise

Imagine our surprise at finding lamb & mint flavored potato chips in our hotel room's snack bar. (You can't make this kind of stuff up). New Zealanders love "chippies" and buy flavors unique to their taste: feta & garlic; pepper & lime; chicken; sea salt & herb. No Pringles in sight. Perhaps they've read the British court ruling that Pringles are not potato chips; in fact, Proctor & Gamble argued that Pringles contain no potatoes.* They're baked dough.

* P&G is thus able to avoid potato chip taxes on their product.
