One Of Life’s Guilty Pleasures…

One of life’s guilty pleasures is enjoying a snack that looks a little different and possibly healthier but is actually something old in a bit of a disguise. Take these “Tornado” fries for instance, they are a potato with flavouring / seasoning, right? or… let’s not beat about the bush, I should just confess to the reality that these are really just long, posh potato chips (crisps). I suppose the name “Tornado” was inspired from the fact that another name for a Tornado is a “twister” and these have a twister, or spiral shape to them. One thing is for certain, these were not just my guilty pleasure, the queue here was more or less continuous and it took a bit of waiting until there was enough of a gap for me to get these photographs.  It wasn’t even jut the potatoes that looked arty, even the garlic had photogenic appeal. After the potato has been put onto it’s stick, it is deep fried and the spiral shape becomes one long potato chip (crisp) which then is rolled or dusted in the flavouring of the customers choice. I can only recommend the Garlic pepper seasoning… yummmm…. wow it was good!, but judging by the range of other flavours other customers were choosing the other flavours were pretty good too. Long live guilty pleasures!
