Snacks in all flavours

In a shop I found potato chips with 'German sausage'-flavor a few days ago. Being German I had to try it. Strange thing. It tastes like the typical Berlin curry sausage mixed with French fries. After dinner I wanted some ice cream, went to the nearest 7/11 and I saw potato chips with 'French Salad' flavor. Haven't tried that one yet.

Thai people seem to love snacks. Home made or by one of the major snack companies. The later often contain a lot of fat and / or sugar and MSG. At schools you can see children skipping lunch and eating snacks acompanied by a sweet soft drink instead. It slowly becomes a problem and Thailand starts to face a problem with obese kids.
