Kettle Brand pretty much owns my soul.  Honorable mention go to Cheddar & Sour Cream Ruffles, Chili Chese Fritos, Taco Supreme & Cool Ranch Doritos.  Lays used to have an Adobadas flavored chip in the late 90's that were great.

It's all about Tim's Cascade. They're basically kettle-cooked chips. They're quite greasy, but they're absurdly crunchy and flavorful, even the basic salted flavor. I think it's because they're fried in peanut oil.

Beyond that, Sun Chips and Munchos are very good. I don't eat a lot of chips. Cheetos cheddar and jalapeno are really good too, not as chemical tasting as the other cheetos. And I've always had a thing for Ruffles cheddar and sour cream. Very good.

They'd put Archer Farms in the break room at Target when they hit the sell by date. Never found a flavor I liked.

I need to know more on this bolded flavor. Was this a "test" run or is it widely released? I've never heard of this one.

Edit, right after I typed this, I just saw that it's apparently called Cooler Ranch in the states, yet up here in Canada it's Cool Ranch? C'mon, we need to all be on the same page here.

Humpty Dumpty BBQ. Old Dutch, when buying out HD two years ago, was smart enough to realize how good HDBBQ were and kept the recipe the same. There's too many sweet-tasting BBQ chips out there, Lay's specifically. Lay's Old-Fashioned BBQ still came up short.

BBQ Fritos are probably my go-to snack.

Hickory Sticks! I love these. Messy to eat, but awesome. I also love All Dressed chips...Ruffles and Old Dutch did them well.

Are the Ranch Doritos still around? I loved those back in high school.

Jay's barbecue is miles ahead of Lay's barbecue, you chip philistines.

I killed a whole bag of jalapeno Krunchers during Maff chat last week. The Krunchers returned the favor. I had a bad week, you guys.

My favorite BBQ chips are Humpty Dumpty. Actually kind of, sort of tastes like BBQ! Lays just tastes like sauce.

I don't think I've had Jay's...isn't it a Chicagoland thingy?

When Czech said Jay's Barbecue, I thought he was referring to Bush's Baked Beans...

Anyways, yeah, I've seen Jay's Chips in Michigan but I haven't had any in a long time. Pretty sure I didn't like them that much though.

I have to agree with Smitty 10000% on Black Pepper Jack doritos. I like nacho and zesty, and basically no other flavors, until I found these; so of course, they took them away. Pricks.
But that's the way I like it baby

A lot of disreputable convenience stores across the country carry Faygo to, I guess, cater to the Juggalo market.  I've seen it at stores both in the south and up here, so I'm assuming it's everywhere.

When I worked at one of those very disreputable convenience stores, my favorite post-shift snack was Andy Capp's Hot Fries.

Though I do know Bloomington-Normal has the world's best gas stations. Even David Foster Wallace backed me up on this.

If you see a display of small glass roses near the counter area, there's a good chance that you're in a disreputable convenience store.  Seeing a lot of people who don't work there milling around in a room behind the counter is also usually a pretty good tip-off.

I think it depends on the location. Near a highway exit...generally good. A few miles into town...it's a crap shoot. Blue Canoes are the finest gas station convenience store I've seen in years. They have a milkshake machine for pete's sake! A milkshake machine! I don't think I'll ever get one but it's good to know if I ever get a serious craving for a milkshake and can't drive 20 feet more over to the McDonald's next door that it's there for me.

Sounds like "Sheetz" (I can't believe I actually get image hit referrals from people searching "Sheetz Milkshake Machine").

You know, I seriously don't think I've ever heard anyone use the phrase Blue Canoe to describe an Irving convenience store, despite the fact that that IS their name.

They're everywhere around here, but the only time I hear anyone use the term Blue Canoe is in the phrase "Why the fuck did Irving change the name of their stores to Blue Canoe? It's a fucking Irving station!" They just changed the name a while ago, so everyone still calls them Irvings.

I don't know how it is in the Maritimes but here in Maine, there's regular Irvings convenience stores (which are just kind of average, run of the mill gas station convenience stores) and Blue Canoes (which I think are pretty awesome). There aren't really much of the former around anymore. There was one near the college I went to my freshman year...it's soda fountain only had like four sodas!

Has anyone tried the new "Mr. Dragon's Fire" wasabi flavored Doritos?  Saw them in a convenience store the other day but didn't buy them because they only had the big bag.



Apparently it was a popular flavor in Asia which has been brought over to the states.  The package was a lot different, it had an oriental style dragon and an old man on it.

also, a Chinese Dorito bag

The glass rose thing is a good one. Same with brillo pads and big bongs for "tobacco use only". They know their clientele and likely do a lot of shitty smokes and drug paraphenilia.

Also, if they have older coolers that look like they were made in 1979, you're in a shitty store, buy your soda but don't touch anything. They get deliveries from Coke and Pepsi and other vendors but any of the other perishables are bought in and that can of coffee has probably been sitting in that same place on the shelf for 5 years.

finally tried the wasabi doritos

they're actually pretty awesome.  waaaaaaay better than I expected.  the heat is pretty mild but you get a little kick from it, and it's got a good salty wasabi flavor. 

I can see why these are so popular over in Asia

I like wasabi peas. I eat them more often than chips now. Since I don't know anywhere else to put it, I tried some freeze dried okra last night. Very crunchy, very weird.

It's not even that I feel bad for Venkman—who, to his credit, seems to take it in good humor—but any comedy value this meme had expired ages ago.

As for this thread, I like Sun Chips. I don't know if I've already mentioned that.
