Kickin’…as in, your breath.

The stereotypes are true:  English people love soccer.

Football, that is.

And, with the World Cup less than a month away, the country has gone Football Crazy.

Case in point: Walker’s (which, suspiciously, has the exact same logo as Lay’s) has released a line of potato chips in flavors based on the Cup’s participating countries.

I have to admit, I put my hand on my heart when I saw these.

Except, American Cheeseburger chips?  I just can’t bring myself to eat them.

Other flavors include:

Dutch Edam Cheese

Brazilian Salsa

English Roast Beef & Yorkshire Pudding

Argentinian Flame-Grilled Steak

Patriotic?  Maybe.

Appetizing?  Not at all.

  1. American Cheeseburger? I don’t know if I should laugh or be offended. Nah, I’ll laugh. ~20 more days~ Wish the US did nifty marketing like that.

  2. From Wikipedia (so take w/ grain of salt): “Walkers is a snack food manufacturer in the United Kingdom best known for manufacturing crisps. PepsiCo has owned the Walkers crisp label in the United Kingdom since 1991 and distributes Lay’s product via this brand name. Walker flavours include Cheese & Onion, Ready Salted, Salt & Vinegar. Walker also makes Sensations branded crisps in the UK. The logo for the British version is notably similar to the American brand, featuring a red ribbon around a yellow sun. The other Frito-Lay brands are also distributed through the Walkers label.”
