Chinese chip flavours

Something I find myself noticing in different countries, is the range of potato chip flavours available there. Iceland had paprika flavour, and salt and pepper flavour. The United States had.. well, I don't remember, but I remember them not tasting very flavourful. Now in China, they pull out all the stops.

Hot & Sour Fish Soup Flavor.

This didn't taste especially worthwhile. In fact, the sweet aspect of the flavour was unpleasant. Sweet fruit flavours for chips are actually popular. I think lime and kiwifruit were some I recall seeing and passing up.

Numb & Spicy Hot Pot Flavor.

These were okay. However, they were neither especially numbing or especially spicy. There are a lot of biscuits or chips I try these days that I find unspectacular and end up throwing out. These weren't mediocre like that, and I finished the packet.
