I was recently having a conversation with a cousin about moving to Ireland. She mentioned on trip here how much she loved it and I responded I loved it at first but I also miss some of the amenities that come from living in the US. There is a reason so many Irish move to the US after all.
For example potato chips. I know this is a small thing but sometimes you have a craving for a potato chip, or crisp, that isn't cheese and onion flavored. Occasionally you want a cheese and sour cream, a box of cheese-its, or good quality barbeque chip.
A side note, my cousin was so smitten by the cheese and onion chips that she asked me to send her a couple bags.
And before anyone responds with, "but you can get Dorito's here or Pringles.Or those ones that taste like bacon rolled in an old ash tray." Yes, I know but compare the chip isle at an Irish grocery store.

And now the chip isles at an American grocery store
|So much selection from both sides of the isle|
Say what you will about the US. At least their is variety in food.
|don't want chips, here are some cheese and onion rings|
