Tasteless

They need more fat and salt!

They need more fat and salt!

“Do these chips taste like anything?”, I asked my friends at the pub tonight. The general consensus was the brand of chips I got out of the vending machine had almost completely no taste at whatsoever. “They need some more fat and salt” was the general consesus to explain their lack of flavour.

I mean, you don’t eat chips for their nutritional value, do you? They might be low fat and low salt and healthy, but what’s the point of chips if they don’t taste like chips? Twisties are great, of course, but they do sit a little oddly with beer, you must admit.

So it was our usual Wednesday night at the pub sitting around telling silly stories, remembering funny anecdotes, and flirting with the bar staff who, apparently refer to us – lovingly – as “The Mothers Club”.

On a Wednesday night, however, we’re the only regulars at the pub.

And when it came time for badge draw, we realised pretty quickly we had about a one-in-six chance of winning. Graeme is now $100 richer, which I’m sure will go towards his travel plans for later this year.

  1. Nooo! I love Grain Waves. They’re an NZ snack and have only just become available here. They’re more like a cracker than a chip to me. Try them again, eh? :)

  2. From NZ? Really? I know loads of Kiwis – my ex was born thee – but no one has mentioned them before. Should I try them with a sav blanc? :)

  3. Graeme reports that the $100 was successfully utilised over the bar at the Lewisham Hotel on Wednesday & Friday nights. I am sure the pub could not be happier!

  4. I left there ten years ago and had hankered after them ever since. Try the sour-cream-and-chives flavour, with or without a good Malborough Sauv blanc.

  5. Graeme – so you think the philosophy of the pub comes from the bible.. Luke 6:38 >> “Give, and it will be given to you”. :)

    MH – Oh so they’re not beer chips. They’re wine chips. Aha, I’ll give them another go with some woine instead.
