If you are a lover of the crunchy and the salty, you have probably, at one point or another, found yourself with various mostly-consumed bags and boxes of chips, crackers and other snack products. Rather than eat them individually, sad handful by sad handful, you should combine them all to make a snack mix.


Hot chips come in many shapes and sizes. Some people prefer thick 'n' chunky steak fries. Others are more partial to the classic French fry. More still prescribe to crinkle cut (these people are weird). Whatever your chip preference, this algorithm will ensure they turn out perfectly, every time. (Micky Mouse/Amphibious Landing Craft shape not included.)


Do you really want potato chips, but all you have are potatoes? I totally feel you. Sure, you could preheat your oven and start baking (or put on pants and go to the store and buy a bag), but what if I told you that you could have delicious homemade potato chips in just a few minutes using your microwave? Dreams do come true.


I've never been a huge fan of peels, crusts, or any hardened, outer portions of various foods. Though I rarely take the time to do it, I prefer my apples peeled, and I still remove the crusts from my sandwiches if I'm feeling slightly juvenile. As a result, I tend to shy away from recipes that advocate the straight-up chomping of peels and the like.


Observe this photo of two Doritos bags. The Doritos on the right are the large 170g version currently sold at supermarkets. The Doritos on the left are the new "Bigger Bag" version -- a 330g behemoth designed for sharing. I think you know which bag to buy the next time you have a hankering for chips and salsa. It's the bigger one. Obs.


If you've got time to swing by your local Aldi today, the supermarket has a deal on 1.5-litre Ambiano fryers that's worth checking out. For one day only, you can snap them for just $19.99. Provided it doesn't burn your house down, that's a pretty great bargain.


When Red Rock Deli first hit supermarket shelves in the late 1990s, it was a revelation to our taste buds. Previously, Australian chip lovers had been limited to a handful of boring flavours. Red Rock Deli showed us there was more to life than Plain, Salt & Vinegar and BBQ, ruffled or thin. Its latest attempt at haute-crisp cuisine kicks things up a notch with such fancy-sounding ingredients as saffron, champagne vinaigrette and wasabi cream. We put each flavour to the test.


Last week, we reported on Arnott's decision to replace BBQ Shapes biscuits with a "new and improved" version that many consumers have slammed as inferior on social media. We urged you all to rush out and grab the originals while stocks lasted. Well, it turns out we can hold off on our supermarket pilgrimages -- at least for the time being.
