OK, so crisps or potato chips?



OK, so crisps or potato chips right? I swear I have some sort of mad craving for them this past week, what the heck is wrong with me!! I usually have crisps a few times a week but can take them or leave them but lately its like I'm craving them.........I swear I had at least 3 packets the other day I cannot get enough of them.

I'm not pregnant or anything so what the hell can it be? I thought maybe lacking something in my diet as I'm vegetarian, anyone any ideas? I sometimes get cravings like this, last time it was chocolate, but now its bloody crisps. Agggh help!!

to me...

crisps are pringles.
potato chips are any other kind of...potato chip.
chips are those sort of fries like...i can't picture them right now but they're a little bit thicker. like with fish and chips in fake english pubs.
french fries are anything else.

imo, chips are chips.

crisps are chips, fries are chips...as are those thicker ones katie mentioned above.

i know with my family/friends it all makes sense depending on the context of the word chip.

in a restaurant or whatever, i'll have chips = i'll have fries.
i'd like a bag of chips = i'll have some potato chips.

context people. context.

Pop at home

Soda most other places I've been

Apparently Coke in Texas, but fuck that. Dr. Pepper is not now, nor will it ever be (I hope) a coca-cola product.
