McClure Potato Chips [Detroit Area]

At Eastern Market today I got a few bags of McClure's chips that I had not seen before. I grabbed the Spicy Pickle for myself and the Dill for the Wife and kids. I never did get to try the Dill but both my wife and I agreed that the Spicy Pickle flavored chips are something SPECIAL! Now my question is....where else can I get them?

  1. JP, we tried them as well (we were at Eastern Market as well.) Berkleygary loathed the dill pickle chips...I nibbled some but could only see eating 3 or so chips at a time. On the otherhand, props to McClure's! We were at at consulting tasting at O'Mara's in Berkley, starting breakfast. Totally told the bar manager McClure's pickles and pickle juice are essential the the new Bloody Mary bar.

    1. Have to say...I'm not a huge fan of the Mc Clure's chips. They aren't bad but I guess I just expected a bit more. In my opinion, they don't really taste any different than the other dill or pickle flavored potato chips. I will freely admit though...I'm not a big fan of potato chips in general, so it could be me!

        Yeah my wife said the Dill pickle ones were just "meh"...but it was the Spicy ones that we liked.

          I've only had the spicy as well and they were pretty good, IMO

          I bought them at the Birmingham Farmer's Market, and I might have seen them at Westborn but I'm not 100% sure of that.
