Shouldn't we be discussing nachos?

Hartville Kettle Cooked — O.K. No, not "Okay" as in "Oll Korrect". "O.K." as in an achingly absent comestible. A delicacy now a memory. You might object, "But O.K. is still made in Michigan." "Hell, no!," I reply. You keep those O.K.s-in-name-only. Those pretenders to the crown. O.K. died in the early 90's, and I'll have no truck with the man who says otherwise. Suffice it to say that O.K. was a quiet-but-crucial footnote haunting the mazedly twisted mists of regional chipping history. A notable local made in Akron, OH., O.K.'s quiet plying of its trade — proving that "silent, but savorsome" is more than just a ridiculously tired trope — made its masticious marque. But then — ah! — it was gone, aped only the the aforementioned Chip Which Shall Not Be Named. Yet the original owners are now back at it, scratching a living at making a product that truly earns the descriptor "unique". Thickly cut, yet with a friable crumb, there are little-to-no shards to pummel scar-weary squamous. These honest, no-frill farm-specfic (check the bag!) potatoes are lightly-salted, allowing them to speak in their own voices. They're back. Maybe not for ever. But for now, at least. And that's just okay by me.
This read like a Psalm, sir. The painful longing, the quiet faith that the Chip itself shall endure for those who are faithful followers of their unknowable peregrinations. I was actually quite moved by it.
I am also of the opinion that the Jesuits should be suppressed.

The local store has just recently been selling Herr's brand in special display cases. I'd never even heard of Herr's but I'm here to tell you that they're the king of chips and cheese curls. Well, the king of punch you in the mouth flavors.

I just had me some Horseradish & Cheddar chips 8O so amazing.

Wait 'til they do their Father's Day branding. That's fun. Dunno if they'll do it this year, though. Haven't seen it in a few years, but then again, I'm in OH and the production might not always make it here.

They have a Kansas City Strip flavor. It actually tastes like steak.

[EDIT] it's Prime Steak Flavor

Do you know how many times I've said to myself, "Paulie, what this world needs is a crunchy potato chip that tastes like a steak."?

Precisely none.

This is how you get a completely disposable society like Japan, boys. Slow your roll.

Is this flavor of chip keto friendly?
