    Philadelphians searching for poutine — or French fries and cheese curds doused in gravy — will be able to find it a little closer to home when a Canadian chain specializing in the dish makes its way to our region this year.

    Smoke's Poutinerie, known for its 30 varieties of loaded fries, has signed a multi-unit franchise agreement that calls for eight locations to open on the East Coast this year.

    I had Burger King poutine at the Vancouver airport. Not bad. Not too shabby.

    Also had Frog and Firkin poutine in Niagara Falls. I feel so worldly.

    I brought back some poutine Ruffles last time I was in Canada as a joke gift for my wife.

    Could have been the best chips I have ever had

    Not saying that. Saying that the poutine Ruffles kicked potatoe* chip ass like no other potatoe* chip has ever kicked ass.

    Don't they all kind of taste the same, apart from salt and vinegar?

    If Nick wanted to discuss potato chips, he would have likely labeled it as such.

    You guys are real jerks.

    I'd love to try some poutine. But I hear that there is no good poutine in the entire fucking state. You believe that shit? In 2016 I can't get a fucking decent poutine in the 4th largest city in the US?

    They have a chip brand here, Poore Brothers, and they made a crab flavored chip. It was really gross mostly because of the picture of the crab on the bag, but still tasted vaguely of cheddar and sour cream.

    I like to get local chips when I'm out of town instead of Lays or Ruffles. Sometimes they're good, sometimes just greasy and shit
