24 Flavors of Chips Named for Bob Dylan That Aren’t Just a Song Title

A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall is not a chip flavor. “A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Falafel almost is.

As anyone who’s ever encountered a bag of Rap Snacks can tell you, it’s nothing new for musicians to pop up on potato chip bags. And as anyone who’s ever seen a Victoria’s Secret ad can tell you, it’s nothing new for Bob Dylan to align himself with A Brand™. But the good folks at Open Culture have discovered a particularly piquant bit of (presumably unauthorized) synergy in the form of Chinese Bob Dylan potato chips called—for whatever reason—“A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.”

Sounds great, right? Not really, no—sounds soggy, to be quite honest—but we’re less worried about the taste and more concerned about the missed opportunity here. The only thing the universe contains more of than Bob Dylan songs is potato chip flavors, and this was a golden (-fried) chance to combine the two, with presumably delicious results. So we decided to do the good folks at what looks like the Chinese equivalent of Tyrrell’s a favor and came up with a few Dylanish flavors of our own. Kettle Chips, get at us.
