Where to get Ol' Grandad's Potato Chips in T.O.?

My cousin, who lives in Milton, introduced me to these incredible kettle cooked potato chips from Ol' Grandad's Snacks, Inc.

I love them because they have 40% less fat, and a low sodium content:

Per 50 g (about 32chips), there is 10% fat (no trans fat) and 150g sodium.

And yet, they taste like regular kettle-cooked chips in terms of crunch.

Have you seen these chips sold anywhere outside of Milton -- preferably in Toronto?

Thanks in advance!

    3095 Bathurst Street (777 Variety Store)

    287 Dufferin Street (Min-A-Mart)

    Yeah, I'm on a diet, so anything potato chip-related gets my attention.

      Pincus, you are goooood ---- and fast! Thanks so much for doing the research. It never ceases to amaze me how much "in-the-know" and/or resourceful you Chowhound folks are here when it comes to food.

      Have you (or any fellow Hound here) tried these chips? What do you think? As I've only tried the regular kind, I don't know if they make any other flavours.

        From talking to the distributor, if I remember...

        Salt and Vinegar
        Mexican something? This last one I'm fuzzy on. It wasn't nacho, and Mexican sticks in my head, but the actual flavour has flown from my mind.

          Eating a bag of regular flavour Ol' Grandad's classic gourmet chips now. This is the only version available at Min-A-Mart, so not sure if there is another kettle chip version.

          The nutrition facts printed are different than the original post:

          Per 50g (about 35 chips)
          16g / 25% fat with 6.5g trans
          210mg / 9% sodium

          It taste more like regular chips and not kettle chips, although it does have better potato flavour. I like the fact that it's not salty & greasy like other chips.

          However, I still prefer PC kettle chips as my staple kettle chips.

    2. You can buy Grandad's Potato Chips (my FAVOURITE for years) at most Giant Tiger stores. I hope that helps.

      1. MVR Cash and Carry now sells the Large Ol'Grandad's Chips, available in Regular. BBQ, Salt & Vinegar, Kettle and Mexican, see their April flyer online :)
