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
