Chip Dispensing Shoehorn Slap Bracelet Thing Is Awesome

O

Tilt Pringles can, access chips, eat. It’s simple, so why would you need a gadget to help you stuff your face with those delicious slivers of fried potato starch pulp? Well, because you can, is why. Say you’re not the can-tilting type. Or you simply prefer the presentation of a neat stack of chips outside their container. Whatever the reason for using the EntreX Chip Dispenser, we’re just sort of amused it exists. It’s a silicone device that wraps around the can of Pringles much like a slap-bracelet when not needed, but when unfolded can be used to scoop up the goods and pull them out in one go.

Now, we say it exists, but we’re not actually sure it does. We can’t find a way to buy it, let alone to figure out how much it costs. We’ll give you the link at the bottom, and maybe you guys can harass the company until they send you one.

So… This Exists: Steak Flavored Chips

Looks like Frito-Lay isn’t screwing around with its line of male-centered chip flavors. Hot on the heels of other successes like Loaded Bacon and Cheddar Potato Skins, and Beer Battered Onion Rings, comes news of Flame-Grilled Steak flavored Ruffles. They’re supposed to taste “like a steakhouse in your mouth— minus the obnoxious maître d’, weird tiny salad forks and soft jazz.”

We’re not sure in which markets, but if you’ve tried them, let us know how they are in the comments!

Geeky: Here’s How To Make Crystal Clear Chips

By David Ponce

What you see there are potato chips. They’re see-through, but allegedly taste just like real chips. The future, as they say, is now!

Apparently “Hamid Salimian, Diva at the Met (a restaurant in Vancouver) chef, serves the ‘glass’ potato chip as part of an amuse bouche. He puts a dab of creme fraiche on a plate or stone, tops it with chopped chives and finishes with a heap of rasped truffles and the glass potato.”

Ok… maybe there’s a bit of cheating involved. There’s no actual deep fried potato slices there, but rather a potato-flavored stock mixed with potato starch, then turned into a gelatin which is dried flat for several hours before being fried. But the result allegedly tastes just like the real thing and has the added advantage of being, you know, freaking crystal clear!

So you want to make your own? Hit the jump for the full recipe.
