Swiney strikes again

I really wanted to enter the Smiths 'Do us a flavour' competition.... after all, potato chips are one of my favourite foods in the world (only beaten by chocolate and ice-cream).

I'd been trying to think of a really yummy flavour for a little while, and then kept promptly forgetting to enter, until last Sunday which was the final day of the competition. I logged on to the website to find that I not only had to enter my flavour (Roasted Pork Crackling), but also an image to go with it.

Panic set in..... I was out of time to create an image and my brain was on a go slow, so I couldn't even think of anything.... until a little lightbulb moment. Could Swiney help me to win?

I figured that Pork = Swine
I also figured that the Swine Flu Epidemic = Lots of extra publicity
But, do the judges have a sense of humour?
But, would Smiths want their product associated with the Swine Flu?

I have no idea, so I'll just have to wait and see.....

I hope that they at least get a laugh out of it!

LOVE your idea - both for the flavour and the image! I want to enter that competition too ... I'm thinking of Sausage & Onion ....

Oh I forgot to enter! I was thinking pesto and parmesan...

What an excellent flavour - I hope you win. I want to eat those chips!

I am having a laugh thinking about a bunch of foodies trying to identify swiney!

ROFL ... Good luck.

Oh swiney, do your best! If you need to you an threaten, bribe or plead, whatever it takes.

Your flavour sounds terrific. I entered myself with Mango Chicken and a picture of one of my chickies! I guess we have to wait for months now to find out how we did!

Tania said...

I trust, for maximum impact, you provided the full description of all Swiney's impressively viral parts? And you can bet your bottom dollar it would make for one memorable chippy experience...

I don't know about the judges, but I had a little chuckle. Sounds yummy.

Very cool idea!

Michelle said...

ha...
so funny...
but the flavour does sound a winner...
I do think they will have a chuckle too...

Cindy said...

Swiney really is a man for all occasions. I think they could have a deal wehre you collect enough barcodes and send in for a swiney!

Gina said...

Cam, you're a card!
And boy oh boy, you've done so much Swiney 'advertising', I feel embarassed. Ok, ok, I feel chuffed. Nice to get some mileage out of a silly idea.

Michelle said...

Well, if the judges don't laugh, you can rest assured that I certainly did!

I really wanted to enter a chicken korma flavour, but forgot about it!

I hope your swiney flavour gets up.

Haha, that's BRILLIANT!
