Love them more than chips.

Haven't had them for years.

our local chippie doesn't do scraps....so we drive to the next village to get them and oh god are they tasty!!! In fact, we just had fish, chips, scraps and salt/vinegar tonight x mmm x (not bragging, just reminiscing lol)

There's a chip shop in my town that's open mega late. So after the clubs kick out, you can go and get chips. And they do scraps 🙌🙌🙌

What are 'scraps'?

@Paperclipmover we call it "batter" where I am - it's basically just the scraps of batter that come off the fish etc as they're being cooked.
Some places will offer to put it in woth yoir chips/ fish or even give you a paper bag of the stuff.

@SSD - maybe try asking when you're next in? Couldn't hurt!

I’m a Fifer but I got scraps at my pals local chippie in Yorkshire. Wee fried bits of batter if I recall correctly.

I didn’t have them twice 😷

What are scraps? I live in deepest darkest Dorset.

chocolatespiders Fri 03-Nov-17 21:55:33

Tiny bits of broken off batter! Lush

@Paperclipmover @SerendipityFelix I’ve just googled and it says it’s leftover batter that’s been fried up confused eww.

Scraps are the little bits of deep fried batter that fall off the fish as it's cooking. You can ask for a bag with your fish and chips. They're delicious!

mailfuckoff Fri 03-Nov-17 21:56:36

I get scraps in bucks, it's not all posh round here

FannyWisdom Fri 03-Nov-17 21:56:39

If you need to ask, you aren't ready to know.

The leftover crumbs of batter from the fryer.
Heaven.

Sounds rank!

I was a regular at my local chippy when I was at my (southern) uni. I taught them about scraps. By the time I left they always had scraps for me, I feel that was my greatest achievement to date.

Ttbb Fri 03-Nov-17 21:58:23

Dear god, why would you eat that?!

CanIBuffalo Fri 03-Nov-17 21:58:29

They were called scrumps when I was little.
