There are few things more synonymous with Ireland than Guinness and potatoes. British chip-maker Burt’s knows this, and has created the ultimate Irish bar snack with Guinness Potato Chips.

The chips contain the bittersweet flavor of Guinness Stout, as well as the salty starchy goodness of thick-cut and hand-cooked chips. The chips are available in Original Guinness Flavor and Rich Beef Chilli. Chilli’s very Irish too.

Guinness Marshmallows


It’s St. Patrick’s Day… And you know what that means? Break out the kelly green and GUINNESS EVERYTHING!!!

Wondermade is on board with Guinness Marshmallows. The fluffy squares are made with the Irish elixir, pure Penzey’s vanilla extract, and rolled in crushed pretzels.

Use them to make some Irish S’mores, or, oh… Who are we kidding? Eat them while chugging Guinness, and then go pick a fight with the guy at the bar who isn’t wearing enough green. Just like last year, but with marshmallows.

President Obama in Ireland, Stops Off for a Pint of Guinness

While recently in Ireland, President Obama took a break to do what any American tourist would — stop off for a pint of Guinness. After recently admitting to a distant Irish ancestry, Obama visited Ollie’s Bar in Moneygall — the small Irish village where his great-great-great grandfather once lived and worked as a shoemaker.

Not wanting to ‘mess it up’, the President showed extreme patience while waiting for the pint to properly settle. Also, in staying true to his newfound Irish ancestry, Obama was later seen picking a fight in the parking lot.*
