Ketchup Chips

My wife loves these and I am hoping to surprise her for her birthday. Does anyone know where these can be bought for a reasonable price? I am especially looking for Herr's Ketchup Potato Chips. I think they sell them online but the price seemed very steep.

I am in northern Virginia. I have checked many local stores - no one sells them that I can tell. I am starting to believe they are a myth!

  1. Ketchup chips are one of my favourites, too, and they can easily be found all over Canada. Sorry - I know that is of no help to you. When my sister lived in Scotland we took bags of them over to her when we went to visit. It was the single snack she missed most!

      Not sure why. Walkers and Golden Wonder Ketchup crisps are widely available.

        My sister was there several years ago and at that time she found none and she scoured Glasgow! She asked around in stores and no one could help! I've seen them many times in the UK myself since.

    2. I see them all the time in NYC. Maybe you can call Herr's and buy a case of the snack size bags?

        Or just order them. I have no idea if this is the steep price that the OP saw. $1.59 per bag doesn't seem that high. With shipping maybe around $2.00 per bag.

          $1.59/isn't terrible.. but they're usually on sale for much less...

      2. you might want to post on your local board as well to see if anyone has spotted them locally. otherwise, as cheesecake said, you can by them directly from Herr's. from a quick Google search it appears that K-Mart also sells them.

          1. I also believe that K-Mart sells them.
