Bicky Crisps!

The Bicky Burger is a Dutch, award winning Burger. It's a simple -- but when done well -- extremely tasty burger and unless you've tasted the best of them all, alot of snack owners will serve you just about anything. Don't let 'em get away with it! For Years I ate one of these every thursday after rehearsal with a band I played in. We became the owner's best customers, turns out he was the winner of several "Bicky of the Year" awards.

The classic bicky (if you look close you'll see that there's salad in there, amateurs) consists of a slice of meat sprinkled with fried onion and its trademark three sauces, a yellow, red and brown one, I don't actually know what's in the sauce but there's beef and horse in the meat. (which is fucked up) oh and to finish off there's a pickle. However most snack bars get it completely wrong, the bread has to be compact and small like a burger you'd get at McDonalds but not as mushy, most guys will throw in a piece of tomato, salade and corn in there, this is just wrong! Others will have an oversize bread with the meat in the middle, so that the edges of the bun are just hanging there, flapping up and down as your eating.

So today at the grocery store where I work these new crisps caught my eye, a pink bag with a Bicky print. I had to try these out. I have to say the taste has fatefully been re-created. I was afraid it was just gonna taste like pickle but it even encapsulates the aftertaste of the meat in there, disgusting but a true success! The Lady on the picture thought up the recipe for the crisps as part of a contest and since she won Lays made this special edition. Anyway, it's a pretty good burger. The Bicky Cheese is even better, and there's a royal size as well. It's definitely raunchy but hey it's fast food y'all. God knows what else is in it.

Update : it seems the crisps start tasting like regular pickles after the bags been open for half a day. Also my pee smells like bicky sauce and this product may or may not cause meat sweats.

Isn't that just ketchup, mustard and like BBQ sauce or something? Some kind of mayo-based sauce perhaps.

A bicky just sounds like 90% of the burgers I've come across. Other than the horse meat bit. Which isn't even weird to me because my whole family is French.

But yeah Doritos had a burger flavored chip once. It was okay, tasted like McDonalds I guess, which is honestly the most you can hope for in a bag of chips designed to taste like a burger.

I don't want to eat horse meat. I worked with horses for 5+ years :(

yeah i think it's fucked as well, but i ate it for years and only found out later , so it was already too late, but you know it's just as fucked for the cows, especially when they treat them wrong

Looks like a poor burger to me if that first picture is any indication of how they all are. The patty looks like those horrible sausages you get in a microwave breakfast sandwich. Ketchup, mustard, and thousand island/or BBQ sauce with canned french fried onions and a horse meat microwave hamburger patty does not sound appealing.

Is Lays just the foreign branch of Walkers (British company)? Walkers have the same logo and also did a similar create-a-flavour contest with such brilliant flavours as Onion Bhaji and Fish and Chips. Create a flavour contests seem to be bad no matter where they take place, fish and chips tasted like cheesy feet and made your breath stink like rotting fish.

@TrashMustache: It looks like american style or "ballpark" mustard. Try a little of it on it's own next time, if it's vaguely mustard-like, but not really spicy in the least (that is to say kinda bitter), then it's probably american mustard.

That burger looks so good....I wish they sold those and those chips here. :{

No, nevermind. I didn't read that it had horse meat. Eh, maybe I'll try it. No....nevermind.

I think Lays used to be called something else here too, because the logo was the same, euhm smiths i think, yeah, right?
