Favorite flavored potato chips? Probably not Coney Island Hot Dog with Mustard

Lays Jalapeño Kettle Chips are good. There is only an initial hit of powder flavoring on the first bite, but after that there’s a nice jalepeno flavor. They actually use real jalepenos in it. They are spicy, but not so much that the burn takes over. The potato flavor is there. The chips are a thick chip. Here’s a good description and pictures.
I thought they might work nicely with a ranch dip ... didn’t try that, but had some with cottage cheese (MY diet plate), and the dairy tones down the spiciness too much. They are ok with a squeeze of lime, but GREAT with vinegar. I had a Cuban vinegar-based hot sauce I’ve been trying to use up. The jalepeno chips got even better with this.
My google for the chips, turned up other flavored chips like the Coney Island Hot Dog with Mustard flavored potato chips. Actually I looked at that link because I thought it was going to talk about a real hot dog topped with mustard-flavored potato chips which seems appealing. Nope, hot dog flavored chips.
You gotta love the marketing guy who wrote this description on the bag ...
"Welcome to Coney Island. Take a stroll and enjoy the most mouth watering taste of hot dogs with mustard flavor in this premium potato chip. It's a taste so authentic , you'll almost be able to feel the ocean breeze and hear the sounds of the boardwalk. "
Also found this MAJOR snack review site.
No kidding are they “serious about snacks”. I applaud them for not dying after trying, what, hundreds of snacks.
So, what is your flavored chip? Is it good right out of the bag or better paired with something ... hmmm ... chip/dip parings.
Oh, if you want to make your own home-made flavored chips ...
