I'm assuming you mean Sour Cream and Onion. Lays please. And a close 2nd are Pringles SC&O, then Salt and Vinegar, then..... :) But really I prefer fries with ranch dip.

Cape Cod Sea Salt and Vinegar - I'd sell my kids for them :D

Cucumber. Second favorite is tomato. I believe Lays makes them. As far as I know, they're only sold in China. Maybe Japan?

Sigh.

Ruffles or Lays, but I will only eat plain old regular chips!! None of that fancy stuff for me.

Lays had a real yummy "Special Edition" chips - sweet and sour teriyaki... Oh. My. God. I bought them by accident, devoured them and haven't seen them since... and i am sad :(

Hawaiian Kettle Chips (if you can find them). Dee-licious.

Standard plain potato chips here. Maybe Ruffles if I'm feeling adventurous.

Homemade are really the bestest though.

Kettle Chips... They are awesome! I especially like their 'beer and cheddar' flavor. YUM!

Right now I'm on a dill kick. My favorite junk chips are corn though.

JAYS REG. CHIPS,,,,,,,salty, brown, cracked, greasy as all hell, but my GOD are they yummy....But you must have heart paddles near by to revive you and some sort of cholestrol lowering drug nearby at all times when eating......

Gah. I abhor BBQ. It was the first flavor and it was just so dreadful when it first came out I can't stomach it now even though I'm sure they've improved it.

For Plain chips, I love Mr. G's coated in a ton of lard.
Second best plain chips are the plain Kettle Chips, that several brands put out.

Then for flavors, I like Cheddar and Sour Cream.

I used to love Sour Cream and Onion, but I burned out on them.

I also like the cracked pepper and sea salt ones.

And strangely enough, I just discovered No Salt chips and they are surprisingly good considering.

The Black Pepper chips that you can only get at the Schlotzsky's deli chain. Yumsville.

We rarely have chips, especially now that we know our kids are allergic to soy, but my husband loves Doritos (I know they aren't potato chips) and I like the Cheddar cheese and sour cream ones, though I like sun chips more than potato chips...

I am going to try making my own as soon as I get a batch of potatoes that aren't soft. This heat kills my potatoes too fast.

Here in Mexico, vendors make potato chips on the street and you can get them hot out of the kettle of lard, smothered in Valentina chile, lemon and salt. My chest hurts.

I don't have a favorite anymore although, sourcream and onion and sourcream and chedder ruffles were my favorites for awhile. I use to buy this Augratin something-or-another made by I don't remember who that I loved but they aren't sold anymore.
Now, if I eat them its usually plain lays or baked (almost all the flavors) lays that I eat.

I love Grippo's BBQ chips. Like Shadow Ferret, I can't really stand the taste of any BBQ chips, but these are very different than the other brands.

When I was about two, you could find me in the living room with tears rolling down my face from the spicy chips.

*Adds Grippo's to pregnancy craving list. Goes off in search of food.*

Plain Lays are my favorite.

Any brand of salt and vinegar are a good treat but I always go back to plain. :)

I don't eat chips very often, but when I do, it has to be with a dip, usually with a sour cream dip. My favorite chips are the rosemary and olive oil. I tried roast beef flavored chips one time(I think they are British) just for the adventure.

Pringles are not potato chips any more than Velveeta is cheese. The don't have much potato in them and are entirely processed food, while potato chips are simply thinly sliced potatoes fried in hot oil.

Plain Lays potato chips. Yum!

I can eat any flavor except plain! Uggh-o! I love flavor and lots of it. None of these weak, namby-pamby sprinklings of flavor. Wait? Was that barbeque or ranch, I couldn't tell? I want it thick and zesty, please!

This is one reason I like certain flavors of Doritos so much. I only wish they would put more seasonings on their Taco flavor. That would be high heaven!

When I lived in Ireland, I fell in love with Curry flavored Pringles. You can't even find them in the US. They were never available here. The products US manufacturers make for Europe are much better than what they make for the US. GET A CLUE NESTLE AND PRINGLES!

Old Dutch seems to be the best for flavor intensity. Love their Dill Pickle, Kettle Crunch Barbeque and Parmesian Garlic, as well as their Salt and Vinegar flavor. That seems to be my flavor of the month so far ... Salt and Vinegar.

Pringles are not potato chips any more than Velveeta is cheese. Yup.

We have a Mr. Potato brand of "potato chips" here that's even worse than Pringles, if that can be imagined. They're so disgusting that even my niece, who can chow down on an entire pack of chips in less than five minutes, won't touch 'em.

Our only other "potato chip" choice here is Pringles. I don't eat "potato chips". If I were to eat potato chips, though, Old Dutch is at the top of my favourites list along with Kettle Valley. :)

I agree that Pringles are not potato chips, but Velveeta is most certainly cheese. Good tasting and one of the best to use in cooking. Rich and creamy and melts evenly without that orange oily mess you get from cheddar.

Mmmm. Velveeta. *drools*

Pringles are made mostly out of reconstituted McDonald's Frenchfries along with flour and such, so I agree with you there, but Velveeta is more cheese than you'd think.

Velveeta Cheese recipe

1 1/2 pounds grated Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups very hot water, divided
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon instant dry milk
1/2 envelope unflavored gelatine (1 1/2 teaspoons)

In blender, put 3/4 cup of the water, 3 tablespoons of the milk and 1/2 teaspoon of the gelatine, and whip until gelatine is dissolved. Quickly add to the hot mixture 1/2 pound of the Cheddar cheese. Whip until blended. Pour into an 8 x 4 x 2 1/2-inch loaf pan that has been lined with plastic wrap. Repeat this twice, until all remaining ingredients are used. Cover pan with more plastic wrap and chill overnight before unmolding. Keep cold and slice as needed.
Yields 2 pounds.

Mr. Turkey went to a brewer's festival. They were selling beer potato chips and Bloody Mary chips. The beer chips were very good. Bloody Mary chips... not so much.

Miss Vickie's Sweet Chili and Sour Cream are my favorites but I haven't seen them anywhere but in BC. I personally can't stand Old Dutch, they are too oily but my husband loves their catsup flavored chips.

My second favorite is plain corn tortilla chips (technically not a potato chip) with spicy salsa, homemade preferred or Nacho flavored Doritos (with an ice cold Diet Dr. Pepper in a glass bottle).

They made cheese and onion here in the US for a very, very, very short time. I fell in love with them during a trip to London and Pringles broke my heart later after I'd gotten home. :cry:

I do loves me some salt 'n' vinegar, though. They have that tang you feel at the back of your jaw.

Overall? Naturally, the brand I love the most I can only order online because they don't make them around here, but I'm still voting for Seyfert's. :LilLove:

I have a giant Costco bag that I've been nursing for the past month or so. My mouth hates them. My stomach hates them. Yet ... I must eat them.

I just bought some beer potato chips at the store. Meh. Won't bother getting them again.

There used to be a brand available here, but I think they stopped shipping, called Poore Brothers and they had, oh, I don't know, dozens of different flavors. Things like Steak, and Pickle, and Salt and Vinegar, long before other brands started making those kinds of flavors.

The ones he had were freshly made.
Poore Brothers are good chips. :)

Slightly off topic....Are "they" making BBQ Fritos Corn Chips anymore? I keep seeing Chili flavor and plain but not BBQ. They were readily available in Oklahoma and Texas while I was growing up and going to University but I haven't seen them in ages.
