      Cape Cod's "light" chips are really good and you can almost convince yourself you're being good as you devour a Costco-sized bag.

        When I was a child (early 70s) my Mother had not just our milk delivered, but our Charlie Chips too.

        Today I like OLIVE OIL BRAND potato chips - particularly along with Ina Garten's pan-fried onion dip (with shallots in place of onions though).

        1. re: Bob W

          wise and bison french onion dip mmmmm the best !

        2. re: FAB

          Those Cape Cod chips must have a secret dose of crack included in every bag, because they're so addictive. I also love Walker's cheddar cheese and Marmite potato crisps (chips) from England, but I haven't been able to get them in the US.

            Have you tried the Zapp's Steak flavor or Creole Tomato & Tabasco flavors? Z's produces a variety of seasonal/short run flavors that are pretty damn good. I like the Dill chips with chicken or tuna salad, and the Salsa flavor rocks, too. Can you tell that I have a Zapp's problem? Z's also makes the "Dirty Chips" brand as well.

              I live in Lafayette so I've been through pretty much all of them. Isn't there supposed to be a Bloody Mary flavor out now? Or is that the same as the Creole Tomato & Tabasco?

              1. re: katp

                Those Creole Tomato chips are killer good. I get so happy when they come out with a special edition flavor. I think they should make this one permanant though. They are the perfect ratio of vinegar and sugar. Yummy!

              I've only had these chips once at one of Emeril's restaurants no less but they are really tasty!

              1. re: katp

                Love Zapp's Cajun Dill or Hotter N' Hot Jalapeno!!


              2. Grandma Shearers kettle-cooked variety.

                Cape Cod salt and vinegar chips are also very good.

                  YES: Cape Cod Salt & Vinegar - Tastes just like a real bag of chips....

                  1. re: cackalackie

                    Cape Cod Salt & Vinegar. First they got me hooked then they stopped selling them in Vancouver, Canada. I emailed them and they said they just don't distribute them out west anymore! Now I rely on Lay's salt and vinegar but still not the same.

                    1. re: discerning_palate

                      Try UTZ Sea salt and Malt vinegar kettle chips, they are even better than Cape Cod's...

                  1. re: Infomaniac

                    I love to indulge in the humpty dumpty bbque. But they don't sell it in MA(that I've seen). I usually eat them when I'm in Maine.

                    1. re: Infomaniac

                      I 3rd that. YUM.
                      Though I also like Sun Chips..

                        Second that. The flavor is addicting! Too bad it's another Frito-Lay product.

                        1. re: donnaaries

                          those are very good. Our local "Tropical Smoothie" joint offers Miss Vickie's chips as one of the choices with their wraps.

                          1. re: Bob W

                            i love miss vickie's jalapeno, sweet chili and sour cream, and salt & vinegar...YUM YUM!!! perfect crispyness and thickness.
