Huge Potato Chip Tasting

Jim Leff | May 8, 2001 02:21 AM

I'm about to do a major potato chip tasting, and would greatly appreciate any tips for really good brands (including small, local companies).

The following are the ones on my list which have previously been discussed on these boards. Please chime in with any other faves (I'm only looking for really good ones), including any info you name, rough location, and which of their products you recommend (I'm including flavored chips in the tasting, though I'll also cover plain ones).

Cape Cod
Eagle (esp. their dark and crunchy)
Gibbles (aka Nibble With Gibble's)
Goods in blue bag
Granny Goose
Herr's ("old fashioned" lard and heinz ketchup)
Humpty Dumpty (bbq, bacon, dilly, clam, hot dog, salt & vinegar )
Kettle Chips
King's (lard)
Krunchers (esp. by Guy's Foods) (plain, bbq, jalapeno)
Lay's Lime and Salt and Vinegar
Maine Coast (made by Humpty Dumpty)
Maui Chips (out of biz I think, replaced by frito lay)
Nibble With Gibble's
Terra Blues
Tim's Cascade's (Portland, Oregon)
Utz (Ripples, Grandma Utz, Utz Kettle Classics and Old Bay Seasoning)
"We don't wash our potatoes..." etc
And last but not least...the blessed chips from La Palma Mexicatessen in SF
