Interesting/Comprehensive Snack Food selections- Specifically Sweet Chili Doritos? EB preferred

I am not going to justify or defend this request, but does anybody know where to get the Sweet Chili Doritos in the East Bay preferably, and/or SF?

I've only tried a couple of Safeways, plus SweetHeart Deli in Oakland Chinatown, which has a fair number of Asian brand snack chips along with some Doritos and Fritos, etc.

I know Ichiban Kan has some Japanese snacks.

Incidentally, has anyone seen Ketchup-flavored Lay's potato chips, popular in Canada?

  1. I just read somewhere that ketchup chips are indigenous to Canada -- who knew?

      1. re: wolfe

        By indigenous I meant born or engendered in, not exclusive to, but I didn't do any further research so it may be they were invented somewhere else.

          According to this link they were also manufactured in the US but are sold mostly in Canada. What's that you say? Eh! Almost all you ever wanted to know about ketchup flavored potato chips and where to get them.

          1. re: wolfe

            Kinda scary, to be famous for an obsession with ketchup chips. Thanks for passing that on.

      2. We got the Sweet Chili Doritos at the Westlake (Daly City) Safeway. I assume that the Safeway on 16th St. near Potrero would have them, too.

        1. No need to justify...but how do they taste? What makes them worth seeking? Is it like a mild Thai flavor? Just wondering.

          BTW, while I'm asking...what are ketchup chips like? Like BBQ chips in the US but with a straight vinegar and sweet tomato flavor?

            See tasting at Taquito site on my post above.

          2. Have you tried the Rice Works sweet chili chips from Costco? They're dangerously addictive.

            When I give in, I can find them at my local one in Richmond.
