Chippies urged to sprinkle salt and vinegar on more than five chips


Staff at the nation’s 800 million chip shops are being asked to consider putting salt and vinegar on more than the top layer of chips.

‘Tasteless chip syndrome,’ which effects the chips that lie more than 2mm beneath the steaming surface, has been blamed for the country’s general low mood, and poor weather.

A new training programme, which will help serving staff learn how to scatter salt and vinegar over a wider area, has been welcomed by Home Office Minister, Peter Thape.

‘Essentially, it will involve putting some chips in the cone, a small sprinkle, putting some more chips in, and then a final dusting’ said Thape.

‘Courses will be 3 years, full time. Or, part-time over five years,’ added Thape.
