What is everyone's favorite kind of potato chip?

One of, if not the only good things, to come from St. Louis is my favorite kind of chips: Old Vienna's Red Hot Riplets

I don't think they are sold outside of St. Louis

They are so good

Do they have Cape Cod chips in KC? I just discovered them last summer-IMHO, there are potato chips, and then there are Cape Cod potato chips. They have them in Aged Cheddar and Garlic and Jalapeno, Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt, Traditional, Russet, and BBQ.

Classic Pringles. By a conincidence, one of my favorite fiction authors (Gene Wolfe) helped invent the machine and process that makes them.

That, and leaving the last few chips in the bottom of the can makes a decent "instant intelligence test" when you hand it to someone.

I used to like regular Lays, but recently I've moved over to the baked version, and even more towards the Cheddar and Sour cream ones.

Cape Cod chips of course....even the 40% less fat taste like nothing's missing in flavor. Terrific crunched on top of my tuna casserole or with a lobster salad sandwich.

Do doritos count because I think they are corn chips?

No. Because corn is not a potato. K?

Do you put malt vinegar on fish and chips? I use malt vinegar on anything deep fried, especially if it is battered, and these (surprise!) rednecks in Northern California I work with act as if I'm insane for doing it.

We had fish and chips at our cafeteria once and I used the malt vinegar. One of my fellow employees saw me doing this and, knowing that I am a Bronco fan, asked if that was the way it was done in Colorado. I was fairly surprised and told her that no, that's the way it's done in the rest of the entire known world.

Pringles was actually sued by makers of potato chips, on the argument that their product was a processed foodstuff that did not qualify for 'chip' labelling, and that labelling them as chips was an unfair trade practice.

There are two authentic Kansas City chips:
1) Kitty Clover (no longer made) and
2) Guy's Chips.

Don't forget the Guys!

Thanks BL- I'd never heard about that lawsuit.

All chips pale in comparison to Utz. Regular, salt & vinegar and my very favorite.....crab seasoning.

Can't get Utz in New Mexico but it's one of the first cravings I settle when I go back east.

I remember when my family came to America and we went to the store looking for salt and vinegar chips. Well, we asked for salt & vinegar crisps. Once we cleared THAT up, the guy still looked at us like we were from Mars. It's neat that so many people seem to like them now.

You can't beat those salt and vinegar chips. They rule.

We've got a brand here in Denver that's called something like "Nantucket Chips" or something. I find that funny since they're made in Denver. I'm not sure why the founders think that claiming to be made in Massachusetts is better. Is Massachusetts a hotbed of potato chip technology or something?

They sell those up here in Washington and you're right, they're not too bad. I don't eat potato chips hardly ever anymore though.

When I was a kid I liked to eat ones that I think were called pizzarias. I just remember that they were made by Kebbler, but I don't think they make them anymore.

I can relate to that-but I save the half bag and eat it the next day, or the day after-seems they stay fresh for at least a couple days.
