People's chip dip tastes vary around the country
Would you eat chips with chocolate or mango chutney?

Well they're just a few of the dips that chip fans reckon they love to plonk their potatoes into.

Other odd ones are sour cream, sweet and sour sauce and maple syrup.

Scots like curly fries

But don't worry, good ol' tomato ketchup, salt and vinegar, and mayonnaise are still the top three fave chip dips, says a poll done for National Chip Week.
