...of course, this comes after any home-mad fresh ones. especially if they're cooked to just slightly browned...

Anything on the thicker side that's not overly flavored.

Thick, crunchy, kettle-cooked chips with good salt please! (And maybe a touch of black pepper.)

salt and vinegar. Also whichever ones I have handy....

Whichever kind most effectively delivers the french onion dip to my mouth. :)

Mmm... Tim's Cascade Dill Pickle potato chips. Oh, lord, I've had to smuggle them across the border for people. Day, them's good chips.

Cape Cod, probably.

Or Ruffles.

Or that one brand of Salt n Pepper chips I had at a party that I never saw again and don't remember the name that was incredibly good.

Cape Cod, or ones of that style.

It amuses me greatly that Benjamin loves salt & vinegar potato chips, when almost nobody else his age (almost 5) does.

Thick Salt and pepper ones
standard Lays ruffle chips are always good. Flat thin chips suck. When in UK I kinda like salt-n-vinaegar

Utz's Sour Cream and Onion. Slightly thicker than standard Lay's, but not wrinkly like Cape Cod's.

I have always been a SC+O fan going back to childhood. They're kind of a guilty pleasure now but have always been my favorite flavor.

Utz's is a Pennsylvania brand and they're kind of hard to find here but Sessa's, of all places, carries them.

Also a guilty pleasure: Pringles (which are so un-potato like that they have to call them "crisps" instead of chips)

Utz has this one flavor of bbq chip that I've never found in stores, only in a sub shop in Stoneham. It's called something like sweet & hot barbecue, and it is AMAZING. Oddly, I never saw Utz chips when I lived in Pennsylvania, probably because when I lived there I would only eat pierogies with sandwiches. ;)

My favorite chip right now is Archer Farms Garlic Rosemary Crisps. Archer Farms is a fancy obfuscation for "I buy groceries at Target." Generally I don't, but these chips are to die for. I have to work hard to not eat an entire bag at one sitting. Good heavens. However, they're not chips like *chips*. I like the kettle chips most if I'm going to be eating a sandwich, too.

I gotta go with standard Lay's , not my all time favorite but in terms of price/availability they are hard to beat. For fancy chips kettle brand salt and pepper are pretty awesome.

For plain, I am basically loyal to Cape Cod. I actually somewhat prefer the reduced fat ones, which are a little less greasy to the touch.

For flavors, I have a complicated problem, because it turns out most flavored chips (especially salt and pepper, which I love!) from brands other than Lays have yeast on them. So right now I'm really excited about the Lays kettle-cooked salt and pepper chips, but mostly because I thought I'd never get them again rather than because they're especially outstanding chips (which they're not).

"Baked" chips (e.g. Baked Ruffles) are insanely addictive for me (I was never that into greasy regular chips). I have no idea if they're actually baked or what. I wish there were a low-salt version though.
