    Rating the potato chips

    When I was a kid, I loved rifling through a bag of Wise potato chips looking for the burnt ones. I always thought they tasted the best. Nowadays, I can only buy Lays locally and they never seem to have burnt chips. I miss those burnt chips.

    Sniffle ... sniffle
    Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.

    Did you ever try russet potato chips? The whole bag was full of overdone chips.



    I'm generally not a huge fan of flavored potato chips. I mean I enjoy them occasionally, but for every bag of Better Made hot bbq chips, I'll get seven bags of 'regular' chips. 98% of the Pringles I get are the original flavor.

    Any fans of kettle cooked chips? I happen to find Cape Cod to be the best of the breed.

    I like sunchips. I don't know what it is, maybe the extra "flavoring". If not I'll go with some salt & vinegar chips.

    I love Utz brand russet chips.

    I like potato product crispy snacks like Pringles and Munchos. I used to like a product called Chipos, but those were discontinued decades ago, unless they're sold north of the border. Lately, I've been enjoying a new potato snack called Poppables.

    As much as I like BBQ, I have never liked BBQ potato chips. Just doesn't work for me.

    I do like cheddar or sour cream & onion flavored chips.

    Even though Pringles aren't exactly potato chips, they're not bad.

    Zapps-that is all. I'm not a chip eater in general. t\Though if offered some, I'll take a handful.

    I saw a bag of "BBQ Ribs" flavored potato chips at the grocery store the other day. I definitely regret not getting them too, they are actually really good.

    Chips make you fat. Ive cut them out of my diet mostly. Although I do love a good bag of Ridagon Chips (those are bags of chips that hit the spot when you are wasted/loaded), eating too many chips was one of the things I did when I ate my feelings instead of working out.

    I remember Chippos! They were a forerunner of Pringles, the same potato product, but instead of uniform-sized chips you had irregularly shaped chips with a waffle like pattern imprinted on them.

    I love kettle chips, particularly Cape Cod and Zapps.

    I'm not a fan of flavored chips. If I'm looking to enhance them, I'll seek out a good dip. Don't give me that powdery artificial flavor bullshit.

    And down here I'm required by law to be a fan of tortilla chips. I seek out the thicker chips because few things annoy me like a chip that can't properly hold the salsa or chili con queso.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."
