No love for Kettle Chips up in here?



After eating these, I don't want to hear about any other chips.

Went to another restaurant tonight that had thick, hot, homemade potato chips. I don't think I can go back to the bagged variety now. I'm ruined for store chips.

This practice is becoming more and more prevalent. It is an encouraging development.
Sweet potato fries becoming widespread is also cool, but beyond the purview of this thread.

Oh man, at PAX I went to Legal Seafood one night and got the lobster roll and it came with house-made potato chips. BEST.

Those are actually, literally (well, as literal as you can get when describing food product) the descedant of the Keebler ones. I just wish they had Baked Potato and the other flavors, too.

TGIFridays also has Pizzarias, too.

Here's hoping you can find some soon! You won't be disappointed.

Also, I discovered recently that I've developed a taste for nori (seaweed) flavored potato chips. When I first encountered them here I didn't like them because they were very much NOT the sour cream & onion I was expecting, but now I like them!

You can have them. Ketchup Chips are disgusting. Do they seriously not make them in the States?

Ketchup Chips are the Utopian intermingling of Sweet and Salty on Crunchy. A bright an upstanding red on white(ish) potato backdrop. Truly the most Canadian of all Chips.

Also. Fries are fried potatos. What condiment do you use to draw Fryrate Skulls and Fryrannosaurus Rex on your fries? Ketchup.
THEREGO IT STANDS TO REASON, Ketchup is the natural companion to the deep fried potato slice we call "Chips"

I tried making chips last night. I had some heat transfer issues and some of them turns a beautiful carbon black. The rest weren't bad. I liked the ones I sprinkled Lawry's seasoning salt on, but just pepper was good, too

Yeah, except the "ketchup" on ketchup chips isn't actually ketchup but a disgusting powdery concoction. That's like saying that anybody who likes cheese must also like Cheetos.

I had ketchup pringles here in Japan last week. I thought they were actually pretty good! They actually tasted basically like ketchup, much to my surprise, and the flavor lent itself well to the whole Chip Experience. I also had tomato and garlic pringles... yesterday. I thought they were also pretty good!

Huh, I haven't seen any ketchup Pringles yet. I've seen the tomato and garlic ones around, though. I've been curious about them but I didn't want to buy a tall can just to experiment.

Recently I have tried potato gratin (okay, I guess), smokey salami () and grilled cheese (tasted nothing like cheese) Pringles.

But they're not any better than any other kettle-cooked chips. (And half the people were referring to the brand, anyway).

Says you! I like them far more than the other brands of kettle cooked chips that I've tried, plus the ingredients lists are generally less scary than most "normal" brands. KC4LYFE

Just taking chips plain, Salt & Vinegar stands far above the rest for me. In my younger days, Cool Ranch and Sour Cream & Onion had their glory days, but I was bad about gorging myself on pleasures back then, so I've been burnt out on those two for years now.

But, chips with accessories are always my favorites, so I guess plain with dip wins for me. On that note, I haven't really seen anyone discussing what sort of dips they use? I normally go with a very plain homemade one. Sour Cream, Cream Cheese, Garlic Salt, Garlic Powder. Quick-and-easy, but oh-so-good.

I'm also a big fan of Sun Chips w/ Salsa, or Tortilla Chips w/ either Spinach/Artichoke dip, or a Cheese/Meat dip made via crock-pot. But for all of these, I think the chief food is no longer the chip, so they cannot be counted in this survey, I suppose.

They are also not potato chips.

I burnt out on Cool Ranch Doritos when I was younger and didn't eat them again until recently. And even then I only do so sparingly.

Having never really given Kettle Cooked chips a chance, I decided to try a bag I saw today:



And now I am a believer.
