Boffins have broken down the smell of chips.
Nine aromas including butterscotch, cocoa, onion, cheese and even …ironing boards, all combine to help make chips one of Britain’s iconic dishes, it is said.
Dr Graham Clayton said: “Whether oven-cooked or fried, the humble chip doesn’t smell of just chips”
I think you’ll find that’s exactly what they smell of.
“Perhaps these findings will see chips treated like wine in the future – with chip fans turning into buffs as they impress their friends with eloquent descriptions of their favourite fries.”
Yes of course that’s what will happen. “Mmmmm I’m getting butterscotch with a hint of marzipan.” “No Dave, you’re getting fat you greasy bastard.”
Can’t the brainiacs just enjoy chips for being a greasy treat.
