back to article TSMC finds its green chips are highly sought after... the edible ones

TSMC is known for making advanced semiconductors, but it seems the company is now driving up the price of chips made with tastier materials than traditional silicon.

    They're almost all gone here in the US.

      That's why they no longer taste like they used to. Just like everything else.

        You're not supposed to eat the newspaper.

    I Do Not Think Those Words Mean What You Think They Mean

    > "its green chips are highly sought after... the potato ones [..] TSMC also released a limited edition of another kind of chip - coconut-flavored corn puffs"

    I'm not sure how one would go about making corn puffs from potatoes?

    And either way, whether you're referring to crisps or to jumped-up Wotsits, I'm not sure what any of this has to do with "chips"?

      Yes, well, that conniving Idaho lobby can keep its foodstuff taxonomy where the sun rarely shines! I'll take a burger with Liberty cheese puff chips over unamerican fries any day of the week! As Dan Quayle almost nearly said "potatoe, cornmato!", it's the new tuber, for the you-tuber, and maize that green coconut force be with you!

    Cuckoo for Coconut Corn Puffs

    I'd try 'em, if they weren't so expensive, and were available in my area.

    Hmm. Perhaps I should check Teemu (but not on my computer!).

      Somebody should probably mention to Shitterstock that AI-generated images are not copyrightable.

    We have plenty of corn "chips" in the US. Tortilla chips are the most obvious example and there's some other specialty chips like Fritos, Doritos, Cheetos and Utz Cheese Balls as well. (Coconut-flavored corn puffs sound similar to Utz Cheese Balls or Cheeto Puffs.) Admittedly, we don't usually flavor them with coconut, regardless of what the chips are made of.

    Apparently, there are things like corn fries that involve putting a bunch of corn kernels onto a toothpick before frying it to achieve the "40mmx10mmx10mm" form factor as requested above. Is this how right-pondians prefer their corn chips to be made?

    Regardless, it's good to know that gremlins can be bought off with puffed corn snacks.
