Im a bit surprised i have not mentioned this:

 

Corn Chips.  Fritos is the gold standard.

 

however Tj's has now 'organic' corn chips.  big ones  for dipping.

 

im not too much enamored by 'organic'  but TJ;s are cheaper

 

as good at Fritos.

 

id love them a lot more if they had 1/2 the salt.

 

gobble gobble anyway.

Has anyone had those new Popcorners chips? I cannot stop eating the sea salt ones -- once the bag is open, I basically eat them at a one-every-three-seconds rate until the bag is done...

This web site has it.(click)

You might be able to email them (search for their web site) and ask them where you can find it locally. They should be able to tell you.

Don't search for it on Amazon unless you want a heart attack when you see the price/bag. :shock:

Thanks - that's the link I posted also, but they said "This product is stocked seasonally." I'll have to contact them and find out what the story is.

OMG - you weren't kidding about Amazon. Insane prices! This looks pretty reasonable for 12 bags, but that same company charges $10.00 if you only buy 1 bag!

Since I cant eat 95% of the crisp/chips  out there and hardly any candy , my weak spot is  cherry or baby plum tomatoes,  in season dipped in salt and pepper...  Yeah, I can go through a lot of them.

 

And cheese roulette, that  it hard to stop, just one more piece and then it hurts...  argh...


Cheese is you friend, Cheese will take care of you, Cheese will never betray you,  But blue mold will kill me.

I remember when I was much younger and the only pistachios you could get were dyed RED. When I was done eating them my fingers were red also and my tongue was sore from all the salt..
