America is snack-food crazy, and with no signs of that habit abating, our corporate food suppliers are happy to keep feeding us concoctions cooked up in a lab. Potato chips especially have become ground zero for some strange, chemically constructed flavors—the kinds that operate outside the laws of nature.
For better or worse (but mostly for the worse), the rest of the world has caught on to the craze, with creatively flavored snacks flooding the market at home and abroad.
Mayonnaise, kiwi, peppermint—these are the world’s most oddly, and unnaturally, flavored potato chips.
But on the bright side, if you need another reason to give up processed foods, these might do the trick.
