You brits may know them as crisps, but fuck you and your kind.

Salt and Vinegar potato chips are the most important invention of the 20'th century.

For weird flavored fried snacks the prawn crisp is the clear winner. Potato chips (crisps) do not come in pastel blue, pink, green and yellow.

I am of the opinion that salt and vinegar potato chips really only come into their own when eaten on the beach, so that the wind blows a little bit of light sand into the bag no matter how hard you try to protect it. Then you are eating perfect beach chips. This is the only time I enjoy salt and vinegar potato chips.

And yes, I am absolutely serious.

Is that because you associate salt and vinegar with fish and chips?

We've got them in Canada too--but then we put vinegar on our fries here too. They look at you strangely if you ask for vinegar for fries in the States...

But I like lightly salted best myself.

Depends where you go. It isn't that uncommon around here to see vinegar along with the ketchup and mustard, especially at bars.

And I agree with the topic, with the clarification that they have to be kettle-cooked chips with the flavor laid on thick and greasy.

Salt and vinegar potato chips gives me swolen lips and cracked gums. This flavor is too strong. I'll stick to the sour cream variant.

Agreed. Salt & vinegar chips are beach chips to me, probably because when I was little those are the chips my parents would bring to the beach. Neither my sister nor I could eat too much of them, leaving more chips for my parents.

Precisely. Call them chips, call them crisps, call them fried taters, there's no reason to gild the lily beyond a bit of salt. Anything beyond that drowns out the flavor of the potato, which is all to the bad!

I mostly agree with the topic(sour cream and onion/chives being the stong alternative). Curiously, I like salt and vinegar chips, but I do not like vinegar on my hot chips. My wife is the other way around.

I hate you for having put the idea in my head while I'm in this godless country that doesn't think that Chicken is a flavour. And for reminding me that I've run out of chicken salt for hot chips.

Maybe they do *before* you fry them to hell and back in low-cost oils, but a potato chip bears little resemblance to a potato, nutritionally speaking.

Dill chips, anyone?

Who am I kidding, they're awful. The battle between sour cream and onion and salt and vinegar is a tossup for me. If chips had arms, I'd make them armwrestle the figure it out.

However, any chips are bad chips if they're fried in hydrogenated oil. They taste like vaseline to me, so I don't even have an excuse to clog my arteries with them.

I'm going to have to weigh in with a ++ to Salt 'n' Vinegar. It may be that I just love the taste of vinegar, but there's nothing quite so satisfying as the bite of a nice tangy chip. Goes very well with a tuna melt, some fried cod, or even a bowl of chowder. Great stuff.

Another flavor that I enjoy (probably for the same reason) is lime. It's not quite as harsh as vinegar, especially in the long run, but it's a closely related taste, I think.

I'm totally in the Salt & Vinegar camp, but occasionally I like to break out the jalapeno flavor. Schlotski's Deli (a chain of quick service sandwich shops here in the states, they started in Texas but I fear they may have gone under as we have no more in Michigan) has the best jalapeno chips ever, they also carried some very very good salt and vinegar flavor too. Although nothing beats homemade. Slice your potatoes thin on a mandolin (I prefer my commercial rotary meat slicer I got as payment when a shady bar I consulted for went under :twisted: ) then soak them in a vinegar/water bath and fry them in peanut oil. Corn oil is ok too but anyone who cooks chips in sunflower oil is a godless heathen who shall pay dearly for their sins, yes I'm looking at you Lays.

If O'Ryans chips were still around, you would have been weighed, measured and found wanting. The chips were about as thick as four or five regular potato chips put together, and there was enough flavor on each chip that you could SHAKE THE EXCESS OFF onto a lesser, plain chip, both would still be more flavorful than most Sour Cream & Onion chips. When I was a kid, I would spend entire days scrounging the neighborhood for change, then going to the IGA to buy one bag for $1.06. On a good day I could get three bags over the course of about eight hours. Yes, I have an eating disorder, but I'm sure it was entirely unrelated.

EXCEPT FOR THOSE CHIPS, I agree that Salt and Vinegar wins. Coming in a close second are the Kettle Cooked New York Cheddar and the Kettle Cooked Dijon Mustard, followed by Old Dutch Kettle Barbecue and then the Costco bag of Ruffles All Dressed (just because I have so many memories associated with those Costco bags).
