Beaver Badges and Laptops

We aren’t using Dads laptop for my blog but that’s ok because Mom bought a keyboard for her tablet and now its better than Dads laptop so that’s good.

Know what I’m going to be doing this weekend?
TAYTO CHIP TESTING!!! Im so excited, I have all kinds of chips left to try and guess what  . . . I can use my blog to help me get a beaver Scout badge!  Learning all about different countries potato chips means I can get a cooking badge.

Im so stoked!! Do you know how awesome that is?

I wanted to let you guys know i’ll be back and testing more chips. Mom said she really likes helping me with my blog and missed doing it too.

YAY! More Tayto chips!!

Still no laptop . . . . and now no Teeth!

 

We still have no computer at home, Mom thinks its funny because my Dad is an IT guy (I call him Dad now and it makes me really happy) I don’t get why mom thinks that’s so funny though.

Anyway  . . . . We’ve had to figure out how to get things to work on moms tablet but now that we have  Bluetooth keyboard its a lot easier to type for Mom and I’m even learning how, its not so hard.

the big news is I had dental surgery. I had a third set of teeth, so the Dentist had to take some out and now I have no teeth in the front. 6 teeth came out. It makes it hard to try chips but I’ve had a bag since they came out. Just one for now, Mom said in the new year we are going to get back to blogging and I’ll be able to try the rest of my stuff.

These ones came from Japan too . . . They had a chicken wing on the front so I thought they would be spicy because that’s what kind Mom always has. But they weren’t spicy at all, they tasted king of like BBQ sauce but  little sweeter than what we have on meat. I liked them, they weren’t my most favorite but I’d have them again.

I’m going to go and play with some of my new Christmas stuff,  I’ll write about that too cause Mom and Dad got me a really bow for hunting (but I’m not old enough yet so only for practicing right now)

I hope you had a great Christmas!

Guiness and Haggis . . Meal of Kings

Guinness-Beef-Chilli-Crisps-crop

Today we tried the Guiness Rich Beef Chili chips. I didn’t think they were as tasty as the chili cheese fires but i liked something about them. They tasted different in a good way, I can’t figure out what they tasted like, but they tasted like something I’ve had before. Mom thinks it’s her Guinny stew . . . I don’t think shes right.

 

20160517_174933I tried the Haggis chips before . . . I liked these ones, Mom said a lot of people at her work tried them and thought they’d be bad but were surprised. I dont think they are bad at all. They taste kind of like pepper but not really spicy pepper like when Jason puts too much of it in soup . . . something not so hot. I would have them again, but not all the time. I might try real Haggis if it tastes like this, Mom says it’s not so bad, we will just add some extra pepper.

 

 

Mom went to the Forks Market to pick these up at a really cool store on the second floor called Unique Ireland. I’ve been in there and I think it is super cool . . . the man who owns it has all kinds of things from Ireland and lots of Dr. Who stuff,

its awesome. He has lots of candy’s and chips and even drinks from Ireland and Scotland and Wales there. Some really cool toy cars and clothes too. If you go to the Forks Market you should go see him. I’m going to go back soon with Mom and get some more Prawn Cocktail chips, she really likes those and my mom is the awesomest (Yes, Jack really said that 🙂  )

Made In Canada . . . . Chili Cheese Fries?

I’m really excited to be getting some new penpals in Alabama. Mom has a friend there who has 2 kids that are about as old as me and we are going to send some Canada treats to them and they are sending me some American treats. I think that’s really awesome, everyone needs nice friends that will share fun experiments.

I spent a lot of days shopping for just the right treats and I’m finally finished. Mom is going to send the big box special delivery and I am going to put in a postcard from Winnipeg. I found cool ones that are just of Winnipeg stuff so I thought that was awesome.

AND . . . my Aunty Jana found me a map for my wall! A whole world map, I can write on it and erase things from it, so I can put that up soon with Jason (But mom said I have to wash the walls first 😦 )

I’m going to talk about the most awesome chips so far . . . . Chili Cheese Fries!!

20160525_085053

These are so AWESOME! They are for sure my favorite so far . . . . I ate almost the whole bag. Even Jason said they were good and he doesnt really like chips unless its Dill Pickle.  Mom said they really did taste like chili cheese fries and she’s right. Two thumbs up Larry the Cable Guy . . . Awesome chips! (Thank you Calista for getting these for me)

 

I tried another kind too. Southern Biscuits and Gravy. They are ok. Not my favourite, I biscuitsdon’t really think they taste like biscuits or gravy, but a little bit like pepper. Mom said they did taste like Southern Gravy to her and I just haven’t had that kind of gravy before. I Like poutine gravy, Mom said not everyone eats poutine gravy . . . that isn’t fair I think, everyone should get to have poutine gravy. I’m going to find some poutine chips and see if they taste right. So these ones were ok, but I’d rather have the Chili Cheese Fries.

 

I’ll be back soon to add more flavors . . . next up is Guinness.

Prawns and Goblins

Today I tried 2 different kinds of chips. They are both from the United Kingdom (When I get a map on here I’ll put a marker on it . . I found it on my globe already)

Spit Roast Steak

2016-05-18 21.38.25

I think they taste like meat. Kind of like steak. They weren’t really really crunchy, but they were nice. Mom and Jason think they taste like HP sauce, I’m not sure what that is but it’s probably ok. I liked them, I gave them 2 thumbs up. I wonder if Goblins make them though  . . . mom said maybe they do. 20160520_171454

 

Next up is Mom’s favourite. Prawn Cocktail2016-05-18 21.38.40

Mom really liked them, she said they taste just like cocktail sauce. I don’t know what that is. Mom tried to tell me I’ve had it before but I don’t remember.  I think they tasted like cherry tomatoes and something spicy, but not really spicy. I kind of liked them at first but not a lot . . . then I liked them more. I gave them a thumbs up!

 

next time I’m going to try some from a lady Mom works with . .. Chili Cheese Fries from Minnesota and Biscuits and Gravy from the USA.

 

Thanks for reading.

My very first post

Hello everyone! Welcome to my very first blog post (with mom’s help)

Food-Regional Potato ChipsThis is my potato chip experiment. I want to try some different chips from all around the world and mark it down on my map. My map is still coming and mom hasn’t figured out how to put one on my blog yet, but we will soon.

I wanted to try chips from ALL OVER THE WORLD! this is what we came up with. I’ve already tried some from Ireland and the United Kingdom. I’ve even tried Haggis! I’ll be talking about them soon but i was just too excited to get my first post done!

I’m really excited to have some new pen pals too . . . . Mom has a friend in Alabama in the United States and we are going to send her family some Canada treats and the will send us some American treats – isn’t that awesome?

I think this is going to be really fun, mom does too. I hope you like our trip around the world in a potato chip bag.

From the Mom: If anyone has any suggestions for flavors to try, please let us know . . . or if youd like some Haggis chips of your own to sample next time you see us 😉
