    Honestly I mostly do either plain chips, or these things that apparently I'm told are exclusive to Spain:

    Which, y'all are missing out, honestly, these are pretty good.

    I miss Tim's Cascade chips a lot since I moved from the PNW. Now I basically just bounce between jalapeno and salt+vinegar Kettle brand.

    Though now that I think about it, I really wish Lay's would do another round of their weird bullshit flavors. The picanha and tikka masala chips were so fucking good.

    The Asian grocery near me has szechuan lays alongside many other unique flavors

    Edit: very small bags compared to us normal size tho

    Potato chips are dumb, pretzels are better.

    Am I debating right?

    I'm a big fan of Trader Joe's Russet chips. Just a great balance of oil and salt, and the slightly-burnt appearance of them is nice, too.

    If you like the "slightly burnt" part of this, you should do yourself a favor and get some Splits Extra Dark pretzels.

    I've got a few sources of Asian chips near me but I've never been able to find the curry-flavored doritos a friend brought back from India once.

    I'm raising a motion that every SE++ thread have a number added by the mods next to the title that shows how many pages of "topic" are discussed before the thread devolves into Food Chat.

    For example, this threads title would be A [debate] thread for symmetry’s sake (0)
    where 0 indicates the food chat started before completing a full page of Debate of whatever

    This way, savvy posters will know how many pages to skip to get to the interesting potato chip thread

    Having eaten both my entire life because I lived in the town with the Splits factory, I think Utz Special Dark are better and are in fact the best bagged pretzels in these United States.

    Either a new person or the alt of someone noxious enough to be banned before.

    Either way, does it matter?

    Utz BBQ tasted close enough to the Humpty Dumpty (now Old Dutch) BBQ chips that it helped me with being homesick, so I have an affection for 'em and buy a bag when I see them in the US

    recently stumbled into Utz and i cannot escape the vortex of flavor

    thats what came to mind when someone pointed out the worse the bag looks the better the chip is

    the utz bag is straight from 1971. they are too busy purveying excellence to bother with a new logo!

    It remains endearing to me that a beloved couples' costume in the Maryland/VA area is the Utz girl and the Natty Bo guy

    Good brand synergy, everyone

    Okay. I was browsing flash art for a Friday the 13th tattoo (unlikely given how I feel about crowds in These Our Times, but still, I can dream) and saw a cute little ghost cat but this little fucker, I started snorting.

    let me try and derail this [chips] thread by turning it into a [fish] thread

    because the best fish is salmon

    and you never eat salmon with chips

    debate amongst yourselves.

    Salmon is a garbage fish.

    Give me a nice swordfish steak, dolphinfish, or branzino any day.

    I will ask you to step outside, so that I can eat all your salmon sashimi.

    I've enjoyed more variety as I've gotten older, but most cooked fish is extremely unappealing to me; that oily fishy smell and texture, the tiny bones... Fried catfish was occasionally okay when I was younger, and smoked salmon, but that was the only fish I'd liked until I had sushi. It just tastes/feels clean, especially by comparison.

    I also prefer uncooked fish, despite it being my abusive ex's favorite food, that's about the only reason I avoid it now

    Though I can do salmon that's only barely kissed a very hot skillet

    Do you have an H-Mart around? Best place to get some Asian Lays.
