What's your favorite kind of potato chips?

Ok, I don't really care what your favorite kind of potato chips is.
I just wanted an excuse to post photos of these weird flavors!

But please feel free to share other examples of chips exotica, loved or despised!

On the left, grilled shrimp Pringles.
On the right, seaweed Pringles.

  1. These eel-seaweed chips were good, but didn't have as much eel flavor as I would have liked.

    1. Now this has got to be one of the weirdest I've seen:

      blueberry-hazelnut Pringles

        I've been in Asia long enough that seaweed and shrimp seem like totally normal chip flavours now.

        My favourite, by far, is salt and vinegar, which unfortunately can only be purchased at the expensive imported food shop. I'm fond of the lime ones I could get in SoCal, too.

        I'm not a huge fan of most of the trendy flavours you see. I find they come in about three different tastes - spicy/cheesy/tomatoey, meaty and seafoody, so the grilled ribs, fajita platter, roasted chicken, and American hamburger all taste meaty, while the taco explosion, mala pork, nacho cheesier and spicy Mexican are all about the same, too.

        I did really like the sour cream and sesame Doritos that were out a few years ago, but they don't seem to sell them any more.

          American hamburger-flavored potato chips?
          I'd be shocked, except that when I was in last in France, I noticed a lot of steak-flavored potato chips in the supermarkets.

            i've had steak chips, in Pennsylvania, years ago.... it was like eating cold steak - had a layer of beefy fat on my tongue afterwards! they were good. and i think they were Lays or Wise.

      2. My new favorite (hard to find in certain parts of New England, USA) is: Humpty Dumpty "All Dressed" Chips. In the US we don't have too many odd flavors. We've got salt and vinegar, BBQ, cheese....but these All Dressed ones are either out of Canada or Maine and they're sort of every possible flavor on one chip.

        1. Lay's Kettle Cooked Jalapeno

          Great with my sammiches.

            Lay's Kettle Jalapeno chips kick some serious ass and I love them inside my sandwiches too!

          2. For me, it's Tim's Wasabi Chips. Tasty!
