Where And How To Buy Crisps

Crisps are a snack food with a long history. They were first sold by street vendors in the UK in the 17th century and were originally made from fried slices of potato. In Canada, “crisps” are commonly referred to as chips or potato chips (depending on who you ask). However, crisps are popular worldwide and can be found anywhere you look—even if they’re called something else!

In the UK, crisps are packaged and sold in many stores differently than in Canada.

If you are looking for crisps in the UK, don’t expect them to be sold in cans. Crisps come in bags and are called crisps, not chips. These bags contain smaller amounts than their Canadian counterparts; however, they have more flavours available than any Canadian bag I’ve seen.

You can find crisps at your local grocery store or convenience store (aka “off-license”), but in England, these places carry a wide selection of products that you won’t find at home–including alcohol! As far as I know, Canada does not allow off-licences to sell beer or other alcoholic beverages except within restaurants with liquor licenses.

If you’re looking to buy crisps, be prepared to shell out more cash than you would if you were buying chips. The average price of crisps in the UK works out of various flavours. Here’s how it stacks up against other snack foods.

Dill Pickle: A staple flavour at all Canadian chip companies, this flavour was first produced by Lays in the 1980s after experimenting with various pickle blends and finding one deemed “mouth-watering” by consumers. Chilli: Another hit with Canadians, but Chili Cheese Curls can trace their roots back to 1996 when General Mills introduced them at an American football game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers. 

Garlic & Onion: While they may not be as popular as other flavours such as BBQ or Salt & Vinegar, this unique combination has been around since 1961 when Kettle Chips released it as part of their new line called “Bubble O’ Fun” (a name which has since been changed). Curry: This popular taste originated from Walkers Crisps in Scotland, who created Chicken Tikka Masala flavoured for World Curry Day 2016 before releasing it for wider distribution a year later–but Canadian consumers didn’t get access until 2019! Pizza: While pizza isn’t exactly known as being Canadian cuisine—it’s probably because we don’t have enough pizzerias–this particular flavour was developed right here on home turf before being sold stateside!
