    Depends on how hungry I am, and where we are. Some places to eat do rubbish jackets, whilst others are lovely...

    I dont eat chips at all. I was in Basra for 4mths and because the kitchens were in tents they didnt use deep fat fryers it was always boiled potatoes and mash I just never ate them again!

    I always end up going chip free for months after coming back from holiday because EVERYTHING comes with chips :rofl: I remember when we were in Gran Canaria we'd eat chips twice a day everyday.. even toasties came with chips!

    Chips, as they don't really do jacket potato much here, it is either boiled or baked and I do them at home, so usually go for chips when eating out!

    It depends what the meal is, but id say 90% of the time i pick chips, dont know why it just seems the automatic choice.

    Chips when out, without a doubt! Hardly ever make them at home.
