    Just out of curiosity...

    I've been told that Ketchup and "All Dressed" flavoured chips are not marketed/sold in the US... As is Coffee Crisp...

    What others do you guys know of?

    No one in the states has a clue what Poutine is. That would be a big seller in the South if you could somehow deepfry it.

    Perhaps some, adventure capitalist here, could back our 1st, Poutine kiosk.

    There's a small neighborhood bar that also serves food located two blocks down the street from me, and I'd say that they are most known for their poutine.

    I recall purchasing a canister of ketchup flavored Pringles (and then later regretting it.) A flavor called "all dressed" is too broad to be very descriptive, but it sounds like it could be similar in purpose to the "loaded baked potato" flavor.

    Speaking of which, are baked potatoes consumed in Canada? Never recalled seeing them on any menus.

    Yes they are. Baked potatoes are most often served with steak. Smarties (similar to M&Ms) are not available in the US.

    Milk bags. Such a strange yet interesting concept.

    Hell, bags of milk aren't available in BC either... I was like WTF when my friend from Ottawa told me about them.

    I don't think you can get Aero bars in the U.S.

    There is a candy in the U.S. called Smarties, but it is nothing like M&Ms. That may be why we don't have the kind of Smarties you're talking about.

    Also, I've seen a couple brands of ketchup flavored chips. The one I tried was awful as, I assume, were the others.

    We do have Kit Kat.

    My response to ketchup chips and your response to ketchup chips are the reason they make so many flavors of chips.[​IMG]

    Ketchup chips were available for a short while here, didnt sell well (then again I am near the Canadian border) Kit Kat in the us are mediocre compared to Japanese KitKat. Japanese kitkat taste like they use half way decent swiss chocolate rather than black chocolate flavored wax, like in the US. That and the amount of flavors that are available is staggering (Matcha, Wine, Blood Orange, Sakura, strawberry, fruit parfait, just to name a few)
    Hell, bags of milk aren't available in BC either... I was like WTF when my friend from Ottawa told me about them.
    In Highschool they tried to market sacks of milk to us kids. Everyone absolutely hated them. So much that all the kids boycotted drinking school milk till the cartons came back. FrenchFries and Gravy is not readily available down here, neither is McDonalds Pizza. I recall having BBQ flavored Doritos the last time I was up in Ainsworth. Those were really good.
