    It is just a brand. Has been around for years and years. Has a picture of a windmill on the bag. I don't know what the connection is to windmills and potato chips.Maybe the first company used the windmill internal devices to rig up a potato slicing mechanism

    Hey, guys, when you say "chips" do you mean "crisps" as in thin flat slices of fried potato, or do you mean "chips" as in 1/2 inch square lengths of potato like fries, but thicker, so less surface area to absorb fat from the frying, and therfore healthier as well! Ketchup is good with them, the Dutch prefer mayonnaise!

    Chips are crisps don. Chips are only used to describe french fries if it is "fish 'n chips". I HATE mayonaise with french fries! They do that in parts of french speaking Canada as well...YUCK

    us aussies get smarties in boxes, bags and tubes. crisps are chips, chips are chips as in fish and chips, we eat them with tomatoe sauce, mayo or gravy. with salt or chicken salt, and frenchfries are like crisps (except long and skinny) unless you go to macdonalds, the golden arches they call chips french fries.

    I personally prefer peanut suace with my fries, but mayo is good to.
    Talking about chips, anybody seen a Paprika version in North America? They are a bit like barbecue but it isn't the same.

    First time I went to Canada at 14 I ordered French Fries(chips) they brought them with gravy on them. I told the waitress I didn't ask for gravy, she looked at me a bit odd and said but you ordered French Fries. I said yes, but not with gravy. She explained that was the way they come. OK. So I ate them and liked it so much, I still do it that way occasionally years later.
    Don't even need to go to a different country for things like that. Moved to New Hampshire from Michigan years ago. Went out to eat and asked what type of pop they had. They waitress asked Pop? So I said you know coke, she goes oh, tonic. No, I don't want any tonic water. She laughed and said a Soda? I asked can I get a pepsi or a coke, call it whatever.

    Poutine, that is purely Canada. And so full of fat and calories you know it's got to be good.

    I have donair withdrawal that has lasted 5 years.

    I have driven the 3h (one way) to get a supply of TH coffee. My coffee maker at home doesn't make it right but when I break into the cafeteria and use their industrial strength coffee maker it comes out just right. Must use hotter water or something.

    In Halifax NS I once got a cup of TH coffee (on Spring Garden Rd) I once bought a large triple triple, just before an overnight shift at a crisis line, and couldn't sleep for 36h. Must've been an EXTRA EXTRA caffeinated bean variety. Is that common to TH, or did I I just get "lucky"?
