I usually just get Plain Wavy Lays, but I used to love some kind of BBQ chip, I just can't remember which (it was probably Ruffles, but there's a little nagging voice in my head that says no). I love those salt and pepper kettle chips though, but I haven't had them in forever.

Terra chips are boss. Parsnip chips, beet chips, SWEET POTATO CHIPS YES. My favorite kind of potato chip is salt and vinegar though. I have to admit that I generally dislike "kettle cooked" chips - I think they're too hard and thick (hey-oh!). I live in Pennsylvania so I'm a sucker for Herr's brand, of course.

The best chips are the house-made chips that come with the CB&J sandwich at Hopleaf Bar in Chicago, my favoritest restaurant in the world.

As for packaged chips, Terra chips are pretty good, and some of Kettle's more out-there flavors are also tasty. I'll take El Ranchero brand tortilla chips over any potato chips any day of the week, though. Where's Patrick? He knows what I'm talking about.

...I wish I could recast my vote; I entered BBQ, but I just remembered:

Potato skins, cheddar & bacon flavor.

I miss the old Keebler-branded ones, though. I rather liked the Baked Potato flavor.

While they're not strictly potato, my favorite in this snacking category is the Mediterranean style Terra chips. Pity they're kind of expensive.

I've been trying to cut back on chips, though, since once I start I tend to eat too much of them, and they're pretty much pure processed carbs. And while I'm not in the "OMGZ CarbZ are teh devil!!1!" camp, it's not like my diet needs a lot more of 'em.

I like a lot of kinds of chips. Sour cream and onion, plain with dip, and even those new garden tomato and basil. But nothing is as good as salt and vinegar.

I love good ol' BBQ, the sweeter the better. Regular BBQ and KC Lays are too brittle and insubstantial to be any good, I've found that Utz has better standard chips. Surprisingly, Lays "Baked!" variety is decent when stale, they have an extra crunch that the fresh chips are missing. The name of the brand escapes me, but there was an excellent, rather spicy kind that I've gotten from vending machines.

Also, Shearer's brand has some of the best kettle-cooked chips of any flavor that I've ever had.

I remember back in NC when the only Lay's (and I think Ruffles) BBQ you could find was KC Masterpiece. I liked it, don't get me wrong, but I missed the classic BBQ...

...and when I moved to Canada, boom. Classic BBQ, no KC.

I guess there's just no room for both kinds?

Food Should Taste Good multigrain chips are the BEST with hummus. I'd link a pic, but their site is all flash craziness.

See websites - this is one of many reasons why you shouldn't be in Flash.

Oh... chips. I like plain or cheddar & sour cream Ruffles. Or plain, BBQ or sour cream & onion Lay's. I like some variety and choices. And the cafeterias at work don't always stock every kind.

This is my answer. Kettle cooked are always better! As for flavors I like salt and vinegar and black pepper, but am also partial to plain old salt. Sour cream & onion and sour cream & cheddar used to be my favorites, like, when I was a child, but have fallen out of favor recently.

Yeah I used to love any and all sour cream flavor chips but these days the only one I really like is the cheddar and sour cream. Still the best chip flavor, and somehow it has been since my childhood.

You need to do this: make your own thick-sliced potato chips at home, in a fryer or pan, and then, while they're still warm, dip them in a variety of your favorite barbecue sauces. It will be the only way you eat potato chips again. Everything else will turn to ash in your mouth. Ash I says!

I picked 'other' since salt and black pepper is my favorite. Though Salt and Vinegar comes close behind so I'm happy that's doing well.

I had a really bad experience involving a girl and sour cream and onion potato chips in college and haven't eaten them again. But I never really like them nor barbecue chips. Some of the cheese ones are alright.

I don't know about cheddar & sour cream. I'll gladly wolf them down if they're there, but something about them is just ... I don't know ... too savory. And I'm a big savory booster!

I'll have to try Sour Cream and Chedder someday (I actually never have!)

But I am saddened by the fact that so far I'm the only Sour Cream and Bacon supporter, and confused by all the baffling support Salt and Vinegar has gotten.

So clearly all of Talking Time is just insane. Good to know.

But at least, it seems, we can all agree that All Dressed chips are just plain awful. Seriously, what are they even supposed to be?

Salt and Vinegar for me, but really the more likely eating a chip will feel like a punch in the jaw, the better!

Tim's makes the best chips around here. Their wasabi chips have won out over their jalapeno chips over the years for me.

Other than that? Terra all the way, or plain tortilla chips.

Baked Lays are pretty good, especially with french onion dip. But since a bag usually runs $3.5 to $4 I almost never buy them.

Plain Ruffles, with delicious french onion dip. It is the best thing.

In the absence of french onion dip, then sour cream and onion or salt and vinegar are great too.

I've recently gotten into Miss Vickie's Salt and Pepper.

Of course, I'm spoiled since I sell chips and candy and get all I want.
