british chips I beleive (I am right, right?)
It;s a brand. I only know what they are because I have a store in my hometown that has all kinds of stuff imported from britain

What?? You don't have them?? =O I thought they were all over the world... I've had them in america and spain before... but they might have a different brand name (It looks wried abroad though, a big blue packet with a crisp (chip) in the middle :)

Maybe they are called Ruffle's here? and I hate using the word chips to describe crisps, england's english is so much more sense-making than colonial English.

Tell me about it... the distortions of crisps to chips and chips to fries confused me so much the first time I was in america... I mean ordering fish and fries has nowhere near the same ring to is as fish and chips does it?? =P

Sometimes, we still say fish and chips. Idk where it all came from, or how this confusion began, but I do know that they've become very different languages. Are you ALL from England?

Nope, most here are in Canada, I think. I'm just laughing at the misconceptions. Let's just call them POTATOES for God's sake!!  ;D

im a canadian but I usually use english phrases because my mum loves england so i have been saying them all my life

in a story it can get quite confusing, a character might call her mother mum but then she might say mom in the next chapter or something.
