Chips are one of the world’s best inventions. You may not agree with me, but it’s a fact that most people enjoy eating them – from young kids to grandpas/grandmas.

It’s delicious, light on the stomach and quite affordable. Most importantly, you can bring them everywhere and it won’t spoil – perfect to bring as a travel companion.

The best part about chips is that they’re available in assorted flavours, including country-specific flavours. For instance, in Thailand, you can find some of your favourite (or unknown even) Thai food as chips, making them great as snacks and/or souvenirs.

So if you’re travelling to Bangkok, or anywhere else in Thailand, remember to pick up some snacks. Here are 23 chips we recommend you should try at least once.

1. Crispy savoury seafood – Lay’s 2in1 Grilled Prawns & Seafood Sauce

As a seafood lover, I absolutely love this one. It has 2 types of chips combined in one bag – seafood sauce (tastes a bit sour) and the grilled prawns flavour (it has a shrimp flavour, making it taste quite savoury and strong, and is orange in colour) – ensuring you’re never bored when eating the chips.

3. Addictive spicy squid chips – Lay’s Hot Chilli Squid

It might smell kind of fishy when you first open the bag (due to the squid flavour), but the squid taste itself is actually quite mild. It also has a slight fiery kick at the end, reminding me of the Bento Squid snack sold in Thailand’s 7-11.
