The ones I like the best are "kettle cooked" chips. Very crispy, and there is a good maker around here. Miss Vickeys, I think is the brand name (don't be fooled by the name, PepsiCo owns it.)


That and good old fashioned ruffles potato chips if dip is involved (and if they still make ruffles). I used to love lipton onion soup +sour cream dip with chopped canned clams added to make "clam dip". Yum. I wonder if I'd still like that. It was very popular at parties for quite a long time.

There are still ruffles on the store shelves, so I suppose they must be making them.
We like the kettle chips also. Don't eat them a lot, so if there was a shortage, it would be an inconvenience. We'd either live without, or make our own.

You might but I haven't been able to. If a potato chip has no salt I'll just do without and I eat very little salt. To be truthful I eat very few potato chips or french fries either. That doesn't mean I don't like them but keeping my weight down keeps my blood sugar level in check.

Salt-free potato chips made me think of alcohol-free whisky and unsweetened ice cream. It just aint natural.

So tater chips are $14 a bag in Japan, how much do they sell for regularly in Tokyo? ..Bet they are not THAT much different from the regular price..
As far as dips for chips..I often just take out some dressing..Ranch, Mustard & Honey, Blue cheese or Thousand Islands..
Mix Mayo, ketchup and yellow mustard together for a Thousand islands like flair..add sweet pickle relish or whatever you wish.

If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.. (Gen George S. Patton)

like your resolution of the age old where's the dip problem,
Ranch sure goes well with stuff.

Back in the days when I could eat all I wanted of anything I wanted and it didn't affect my gross total weight one bit I dipped potato chips in mayonaise. This was long before salsa and corn chips came on the scene in my part of the world.

More proof that The Lord works in mysterious ways, and probably has a weird sense of humor too: I went to subway for lunch today and they had old fashioned Ruffles. The kind with cheese flavor. I haven't seen those in years at a subway.

So Japan has a shortage of pertater chips and some bags are selling for $14 each. If potato chips were in short supply around here, I simply wouldn't care and wouldn't miss them even if I did want to buy some.


Shortages of staples like rice, potatoes, and onions I can understand getting upset about, but not junk food.


Tell me, are you panic stricken or feeling threatened by a the specter of a potato chip shortage?



So how do you feel about shortages of beer and ammunition?

You live in New Mexico and there was a time before they had salsa?
