My wife bought a bag oc Lays Loaded Cheddar Bacon and Sour Cream chips for the game Sunday...we forgot to take them with us...I opened them Monday night when I got home from work and finished them last night when I got home from work.....

Jocose is ashamed of me...that works out...no sense in both of us being disappointed in my behavior...so I'll just pick up another bag on the way home tonight :)

Cape Cod Infused Jalapeño — Those familiar with Cape Cod (who isn't?), need no introduction to the base chip used here. The gimmick seems to be all in the flavoring. Or perhaps more accurately, in the aromatizing. Instead of being coated with flavor-seasonings, the finished (I assume) chips are 'spritzed' with vegetable oil infused with fresh ingredients. Jalapeño, in this case. While the topping is authentic, fresh and odiferously gratifying (and hot!), the unique processing allows the chip itself an unusual prominence. The gustatory experience is almost like munching plain, salted Cape Cod chips haunted by the Ghost of Jalapeño Past. Plain chips are surely noble and Cape Cods's are doubly-so, so this is certainly not a bad thing, and I eagerly finished the bag. Some may even find a best-of-both-worlds mojo going on here. But for me, 'tis perhaps a bit of a pretender to the flavored-chip throne.

What's the sodium content of the entire bag of chips?

I haven't been eating chips because of the carb content. I'm concerned about my sodium content, though not because the doctor has said it's something I should be concerned about. I guess just worrying for worry sake. I probably should try to roll back my sodium intake.

Ten Acre How Chicken Soup Saved The Day — Okay, okay already. Yes, the name alone bespeaks the brand's too-cool-for-skool hipness. But thankfully, these award-winning chips (or more properly, 'crisps' ) walk-the-walk and redeem what could have been a cynical exercise in market positioning into a impassioned encomium of potatoic virtue. The chips are both thin and substantial, exhibiting an elementally earthy flavor likely indicating heirloom cultivars. The seasoning is elegant, restrained and convincing, all-the-more remarkable given its vegan provenance. This sings the body poultry, yet without insinuation. Though another idiosyncratically obscure entry in a saturated market, this is highly recommended as an exemplar in its genre.

Mister Bee Honey Barbeque — Another entry in the Classic American Chip category, this regional produce's claim-to-fame consists in the loudly trumpeted slogan of being "The Only Potato Chip Made in West Virginia!". Leaving aside the current, literal accuracy of that claim, we are immediately know that we're in the presence of something special. As regarding the flavor profile of the base chip, if you've spent any time at all with long-established regional marques, then you've been through this territory before. It's a classic 1950's chip, with all of the toothsome charm and rote familiarity which such may entail. The topping is striking, in many respects evoking the powdery sweetness of Grippo's Bar-B-Q, yet sans that chip's savory and piquant spices. Here, instead, the mildly homey cloy of honey carries the day, and does so to good effect. Though it may not be positioned at the flashiest end of the snack-food spectrum, this chip's ingratiating companionability and staid elegance is enough to commend its gustatory virtues, just as its vaunted station in West Virginia history is enough to establish its preciousness as a cultural artifact, magnifying its gravitas as a worthy contender in the oft rough-and-tumble world of contemporary chipdom.

Wellsley Farms (BJ's) Kettle Cooked Sea Salt — Truly, these are a basic chip. "Basic" in the best-possible sense, that is. Which signifies that they are sans seasoning, save for salt. Nude. Nada. Naked. And in line with said "basic" thematic, these are traditionally — and thus, somewhat indolently — cooked. The kettleiest type of kettle chip. Which means that — bent, crinkled and, above all, folded — they craze into finely-honed, jagged daggers at the slightest provocation. Mindful munching is highly recommended. And which also means that these chips are sublimely greasy. The sad remnants nestled in the nether regions of the amply proportioned 30-ounce bag are awash in salty succulence. And at only $4.49 for these thirty lubricious ounces, the price is right, indeed.

Utz Ripples Fried Dill Pickle — Pennsylvania is a utopic haven for chip culture. To a degree perhaps, its lesser satellite, Ohio, marches in stalwart solidarity with the elder Commonwealth, though always a bit behind that signal polestar's lead. So, when dill is on the table, to present for consideration an also-ran pickle flavor would be the tired gambit of a snack-food feebling. Instead, enter fried dill pickle. Subtle sweet and toasty notes mellow what can often be an intermittently shrill experience: standard dill being apt for a Summer's seasonal dalliance, but one which the ripening of Fall can reveal as an overeager mispairing. "Crunch in haste; repent at leisure", as they say. Instead, here is a dill for the aeon. As suited to a cappella as it is to burgers and dogs, the rippling process indicates that dips are also prescribed. Though this reviewer had not opted for the latter twist at the time of this writing, one can only foresee these dill-icious beauties as a substrate admirably gracious to any sour-cream-&-onion extravagance.

Dang it boys! I can't eat this stuff anymore and now here you are, tempting, no, taunting me.

I'll never forgive any of you for this.
Chips are killers. Research shows it's worse than bacon. Apparently, it can kill in less time than second hand smoke.

Are you still on your healthy eating regimen or did you return to abuse?

Lay's Wavy Fried Green Tomato — It's that time of year again. One knows that Summer is starting its long march to the grave when Lay's unveils the entrants in her Do Us a Flavor™ campaign. Fried Green Tomato, along with Crispy Taco and Everything Bagel, comprises this year's trio. One might think that Fried Green Tomato is a dish that, by virtue of being not only defined by a rather narrow band of flavor characteristics but also by a character that comes largely from a singular toothsomeness, would not felicitously lend itself to the chip format. But one would be wrong. Whilst the munching of these might not conjure immediate and unbroken apprehension of fried-green-tomatoey essence, the profile is balanced enough to both intrigue and ingratiate. Is it a necessary addition to chippery canon? No, of course not. In line with Do Us a Flavor's animating spirit, these novelty recipies are all superfluous. Ah, but what savory superfluity the late Summer brings!

I have had a similar Maui Onion chip and liked them a lot. I love chips, but have for the time being, stopped buying them. As with other things like cookies, ice cream, and cakes,....too addicting.
