Snack "Chips"?

I was sitting here at my desk, hard at w*rk peacefully cruising through the ER forum, when I heard the pleasant crunch of a potato chip - now, not the rude crunching or smacking from a rude co-worker, but the appetizing soft crunch - and lo and behold, my mouth watered! I walked around to her cube and we giggled and had a fun discussion about chips in general, and while when in the mood for such bad for me things, I won't necessarily kick most to the curb, but I do have my preferences - and yes, she shared hers with me (preventing me from having to purchase my own bag!)

So, here's a fun poll to see which ones we rate the best!

I'm a total sucker for just about any potato chips. We don't keep them in the house, if at all possible.... it's too difficult for my self control.

Cheetos are my one guilty pleasure. All those other chips have no appeal at all, but I cannot walk away from a bag of cheetos. I used to reward myself on long boring drives with a bag from the AM PM>

Don't see them on the list, but those "Terra chips" are made of veggies and taste really good, same old crunch as a nacho.

Doritos. I don't dare even walk down that aisle in the store - they jump into the cart on their own. If they make it home the giant bag lasts two days at most. My weight is the same as it was when I was 25 and it's become increasingly difficult to keep it that way.

Makes me laugh. Every time I walk past the junk isle my mouth starts to water.

Baked Lays. Not as greasy as regular chips, less fat, etc.

I make up for it in quantity though.

I only buy them once or twice a year, as I will not stop until they are consumed.

I'd vote for pork rinds but that's not on the list either.

Funny, I was just told by a 2.9 year old that "I need barbecue chips in my tummy!"

Ruffles deserve their own category. Dipping without them may be hazardous to your laundry situation.

I love the Kettle chips in Jalapeno, Red Hot, and the Buffalo Blue Cheese.

I put Sun Chips because of the compromise between taste and fat/calories. If health were no object, I think I'd go with Fritos or those Maui potato chips.

I love Kettle chips too, and in my mind for poll purposes, I had them in the "regular" potato chips category Thai chili??!! Mmmm - that sounds tasty!

Trek: They have Pork Rinds in Estonia? We used to eat them when I lived in VA - not even sure if they can be found in NJ!

The sweet thai chili ones are hard to put down.

On the other end of the spectrum we have these

I used to spend a couple of dollars a day on Nacho Cheese flavored Doritos from the snack machine at the office. Now it's mostly these from the Garden of Eatin'...
