              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.

                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.

                      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.

                        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!

                          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!

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

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

                                                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.

                                                          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.

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.
