#789 Putting potato chips on a sandwich

potato-chips-in-a-sandwichEver had a friend start buzzing with The Dating Glow?

You know, they start seeing someone new and suddenly start walking with a new pep in their step, a new trot in their walk? Maybe they lose five pounds, show up with a new haircut, or start wearing tight pants. Or maybe they just smile wider, laugh louder, and exude a new confidence about themselves.

Being with someone new makes them look and feel better and that’s a great thing. That’s The Dating Glow.

Now, if you don’t mind, let’s switch gears and talk about sandwiches — soggy, squashed, Saran-Wrapped sandwiches from the bowels of your bookbag. Those warm and tired messes look pathetic with sweaty cheese, slimy tomatoes, and warm turkey. Yes, it’s a sandwich down on its luck, lacking a bit of confidence, and in desperate need of a glow of some sort.

That’s where potato chips come in.

When you crunch up your sandwich with some carefully inserted potato chips, you inject a spicy vial of Grade A Oomph. Suddenly that pasty gob of bread and meat transforms into a rainbow of crunches and flavors. It’s the sandwich equivalent of getting a new hairdo, wearing something scandalous, or buzzing with a new vibe.

Now, before we call it a day here, let’s chat about something funny about putting chips on a sandwich. Alright, here it is: everybody thinks they invented it. Honestly, I’ll be grabbing a quick lunch with a friend from work and he’ll just sort of raise his eyebrows at me mysteriously. “Know what I like to do?” he’ll ask, squinting a bit and cracking a wry smile. “Put chips on my sandwich, that’s what,” he’ll unveil, a stiff bottom lip, some scrunched eyebrows, and a firm nod echoing the big reveal.

So that’s it, ladies and gentleman. Putting potato chips on a sandwich.

You invented it.

We all love it.

AWESOME!

  1. Nacho Cheese Doritos on a tuna salad sandwich on sourdough. I have soiled myself. It, too, is creamy and delicious.

  2. I have been putting plain, salted potato chips on my PB&J sandwiches all my life. Just something about it. I thought I was the only one, as everyone always looked at me funny.

    One day, a few years ago, I was putting chips on my PB&J at work, and two girls walked in at different times and said they loved that and thought they were the only people who did that.

    The best!

  3. I had no idea there were more out there like me! My friends totally laugh at me whenever we go to Altanta Bread Company and I crunch my potato chips on my turkey and pumpernickle sandwich. They are truly missing out.

  4. Wow, I now have this over-powering urge for a sandwich with oven-baked chips in it but I’m stuck at the office for another couple of hours. Thanks fer nothing, awesome blog.

  5. I do have to admit, I thought I was the only one who ever put chips on a sandwich. But I think it’s great that I’m not. Most of these combinations I have not tried — I was mostly a turkey or bologna with cheese and cheese doritos. Or a veggie sub from Subway with cheese doritos. Although I have never put chips on a sloppy joe, as was suggested, I did used to pick up the beef that fell out of the sandwich with chips.

  6. I’ve been doing the chips-on-sandwiches thing for a long time, now. In an exhibition of poor meal planning, one day recently I ran out of lunch meat but still had a ton of bread left over. Since then, I’ve been eating sandwiches that are comprised *solely* of chips (& mayo). They are pretty fantastic.

  7. I sometimes forgo the meat and cheese and condiments and just make a strait-up potato chip sandwich.

  8. Never try this opinion, but I’ll try it someday. :)
    It looks cooler than bacon or cheese.
    It is also cool for veggie-people who wants something different than the all day-stuff.
    If I gone say this to my friends they’ll say I am a retard! :)
    So will I, if a friend tells me :”hey, dude, try chips on a sandwich!”
    who invented this anyway? :p

  10. Barbecue sandwich with chips is my favorite. I like it better than bbq chips. I liked a lemon flavored ice cream with chips as a kid. Of course; chips, french fries and etcetera are occasional indulgences.
