I read in a blog that these guys exist - but I haven't been able to find them.

Anyone know anything on the subject? Where I can get them near U City?

    Definitely an "only in St. Louis" food. I do admit that I'd buy a bag if I saw one, though.

      When I heard of them I knew I had to try them. I thought of going to the Fenton warehouse and getting a case - but what if they are yucky?

      I am planning on going thru the Hanley/Delmar intersection today - a chip stop at Circle K is scheduled!!

        And buying a bag from Circle K means my husband makes that huge commission off it's sale :)

        I'll be curious to hear what you think of them. They are interesting.

          "Interesting" - that's always a perk-your-ears-up word.

            Well the shop at Hanley/Delmar didn't have them but the one at Woodson/Page did.

            As a BBQ person I am very glad that I tried them but I don't plan on buying another bag. I really prefer plain ripple chips. But they make a good avatar

        My husband just happens to be the OV route guy for this area so here's a pretty inclusive list. They do taste just like bbq pork steaks. I find that it a bit disconcerting in a chip so I'm not fond of them but he says they are definitely selling well in areas. I much prefer the red hot riplets.

        Circle K at Olive and Hanley
        Pete's Sure Save at Olive and Hanley and the one on Vernon
        Mobil at Page and Hanley
        Hanley Hills Market
        Mobil in Olivette and Creve Couer both on Olive

          There's a little quick shop type of market at Manchester and Boyle in the Grove that carries the pork steak flavored chips.
