AH, THE HUMBLE garlic cheese chip.

Who among us hasn’t shoved forkfuls of the stuff  into our gob after a night out? Or picked away at cold leftovers while in the throes of an unmerciful hangover?

Yes, garlic cheese chips are an undisputed culinary delicacy here in Ireland. But for people not from around these parts, the concept might be a little… off-putting.

Let’s explain it, shall we?

Garlic cheese chips are essentially chips covered in grated cheese and garlic mayo.

And while it might sound/look unappetising, it’s actually heavenly.

Chipper chips, garlic veganaise & grated Violife cheese....mmmmm #garliccheesechips

It’s pretty much the ultimate drunk food.

The yellowness of the cheese, the tang of the garlic sauce, the mush of the chips — if there were Michelin Stars given out for drunk food, garlic cheese chips would have the most in the land.

Some super healthy fuel for later 🙊 #malt #garliccheesechips #yum

And this Dutch man who found himself addicted to the garlic cheese chips from Babylon

Like we said, the cravings never stop.

The best garlic cheese chip offering? Supermacs, no doubt.
