Chips

When we hear “chips,” we think Lays. We think Ruffles. We think barbecued flavored or sour cream and onion — that salty goodness of a snack that we regret opening once we’ve finished the entire bag in one go. Chips as we know them in the States are actually French fries abroad. And what we call chips, the Brits call crisps. So Chips are really fries, and fries are really chips, but then what are chips called overseas? Crisps of course. Got it? Good.
