I like Tim Cascade's. It's is big out here in the PNW. They're a bit thicker and more well done than most other brands. I like all their flavors.

When I was in culinary school at AIS Tim's daughter was in my classes. She brought in a hugh box of them one day. Many were 'in development' meaning they weren't ready for public consumption as they were still being test marketed.

Their biggest seller in terms of volume is the Cheeseburger flavor. Sounds awful until you hear whom they sell it to.

Prisons. And it's a lot cheaper to give a prisoner a 1 oz bag of chips that tastes like a cheeseburger than it is giving them the real thing.

Makes sense to me.

Utz still makes Chesapeake Crab chips. Old Bay flavored. Yum.

Although I'm happy with a plain chip, I favor yogurt and dill and salt and pepper.

I must admit, I've been on a potato chip kick lately.

Salt & Lime.

:rolleyes:


I don't understand why rappers have to hunch over while they stomp around the stage hollering.  It hurts my back to watch them. On the other hand, I've been thinking that perhaps I should start a rap group here at the Old Folks' Home.  Most of us already walk like that.

The somewhat new (and somewhat expensive) Lay's Natural plain chips ("Sea Salted") are my current favorite; mass-market, but better than the mega-mass-market chips.

Although I live in the Pacific Northwest, and have ready access to Tim's Cascade chips (the jalapenos are excellent, but the spicing seems to be inconsistent - some are wimpy, some are good), I've never seen the cheeseburger chips in my local markets - do I need to go to prison to get them?? [Not an option I'm considering merely for the sake of chips, but free room and board might have it's advantages... :smile:]

Yeah, that's why Salt & Pepper is really my default. It still tastes like a potato.

I'm partial to Terra's sweet potato chips (NOT the flavored ones, just the unsalted, plain ones). They go particularly well with bourbon.

I am now eating the Lay's Chicago Steakhouse Loaded Baked Potato chips. They taste like smoky sour cream, onion, and cheddar chips. I thought they were going to taste like steak. :angry:

Good quality bbq, jalepeno, Rte 55 death chips (or whatever they're called) and Terra's Balsamic chips, if they still make them.

From England, salt & vinegar (rarely vinegary enough in U.S.), cheese and onion, and (slightly ashamed to say) prawn cocktail.

Wasn't there a steak flavored chip? I remember it from about 10 years ago, maybe more. No idea who made it, but it was GOOD. So was the hot dog with mustard flavor.

Utz's Carolina Barbecue flavor. Tastes like what you'd get if you crossed BBQ and salt & vinegar chips.

The new "Natural" Lay's with sea salt.

OK, I'm trying to do Atkins right now so I'm just gonna get off this topic. :angry:

Gimme plain, preferably hard-cooked.

I've never heard of Tim Cascade's. Can I get them in the Philly area?

I was disappointed by them too. The Monterey Pepper Jack ones are much better!

(But my #1 favorite is salt & vinegar.)

I like Lay's and Ruffles.

As for flavors, I like sour cream and onion and sour cream and cheddar.

Anything else, and I don't think I might eat it.


I think silver suits me so...

...but red is also for me!
