  1. Trader Joe's Salt & Vinegar

    Kettle style and sooooooooooo vinegary. Yum.

    1. Walker's Crisps - British ones - wish I could get them in America

      1. Wise Honey Barbecue--yeeha!!! It's more than a chip, it's a meal.

        1. T.J's salt and vinegar.....very vinegary

            1. Route 11 chips from Warrenton, Virginia. They're crunchy, not too greasy, salty and have a very pronounced potato flavor.

              I'm also a huge fan of plain Utz chips in the red and white bag....thin, crispy, potatoy perfection.

              1. Zapp's Cajun dill are pretty awesome. And I say that as 'not a fan', traditionally, of flavored chips. Cape Cod are pretty hard to beat, and the low fat don't even taste it, you'd never know the difference. So for that and great taste, they get the nod.

                1. Dirty Potato - Cajun or BBQ

                  1. Tims Cascade Wasabi Chips. You either hate em or love em.

                      I was really disappointed in those -- I usually love wasabi flavored things, but I thought these really missed the mark. I do love Tim's Zesty Dill Pickle chips!

                      TJ's BBQ chips are quite good -- nice BBQ tang and not too sweet.

                      Terra Red Bliss Roasted Garlic and Parmesan -- I don't buy them because I'll eat the whole bag in one sitting.

                      1. Mike Sells Reduced Fat. Made right here in Dayton OH, ingredients are: potatoes, peanut oil, salt. Good stuff! I prefer these over the full-fat version because they are less greasy but still full of fried potato good-ness!

                        1. Grippos BBQ Chips. I used to get them when I lived in IN. Well seasoned with a sort of sweet, salty, spicy mix. My favorite part is the crushed chips at the bottom of the bag. Yum!

                          1. We just got some Terra chips with sea salt and black pepper. Yummy!

                            1. Kettle Chips Spicy Thai.

                                1. Kettle Chips Honey Mustard or Buffalo and Bleu Cheese Chips (ridged)! Soooo yummy.

                                  1. First post here!

                                    Kettle Spicy Thai
                                    Humpty Dumpty Salt & Vinegar

                                    1. Lay's regular - nothing fancy, just the plain salt, no ridges and no way can you just eat one.

                                      1. Another fav is Maui chips. these are the original Hawaiian "kettle chips" Location has a lot to do with my affinity for these.

                                        1. Schlotsky's sour cream and onion!

                                          1. terra: spiced sweet potato (mmm! spicy! sweet!)
                                            kettle chips: honey dijon (cannot eat just one)

                                            1. Solea Olive Oil Potato Chips in Rosemary

                                              1. There was a Salt and Vinegar brand that Costco used to carry from a company based in Colorado, anybody know the name or where we can find them? they were the best Salt and Vinegar and when Costco carried them they were a bargan.

                                                1. Mad House Munchies Salt and Vinegar, Herr's BBQ Rib Chip

                                                  1. Tim's Cascade jalapeno or sea salt and vinegar

                                                    1. Utz Ripples
                                                      Herr's Salt & Vinegar
                                                      Cape Cod Russet (saves me from fighting for all the dark chips in the regular bag)

                                                      1. Limon Lays because of their tangy goodness. Yum!

                                                        1. Cape Cod reduced fat chips are remarkably good -- and you can kid yourself that you're not being bad as you scrape the last crumbs out of the bag.

                                                          1. Cape Cod Dark Russet until they screwed with the recipe and now they don't taste near as good.

                                                            1. Kettle Chips ruffled Salt and Pepper. Best bagged potato chip I've ever had.

                                                              1. Kettle Spicy Thai splattered with Tabasco sauce.

                                                                1. Calbee Okonomiyaki flavored chips, made in Hong Kong only. They used to sell them at the Ranch 99 stores here in CA, but not anymore. Everytime someone I know is coming back from HK, I have them bring me some. Calbee has so many interesting chip flavors, I always check the asian grocery stores to see what flavors were imported (they have different flavors from different countries). Other flavors worth mentioning is Butter and Soy sauce, Pizza, and Tomato.

                                                                  2 Replies

                                                                    Calbee Okonomiyaki is very tasty but I also like the Pizza flavor you'd mentioned. Yum!...

                                                                    Whenever I travel to Canada I try and bring back some Ketchup flavored Lay's. The Dill Pickle and Chili Oil and Garlic flavored Lay's are also tasty and are all only available in Canada. Damn!

                                                                    I also love those Zapps Cajun Dill and Tabasco flavored chips, too! They're not that expensive and can be ordered over the internet.
