I'm sure previously mentioned.

I've been feeling nostalgic.

If you have a party in Minnesota and you don’t have Old Dutch you might as well just go jump off a bridge.

Look, mister, I'd jump off a bridge BEFORE I went to Minnesota. :lol:

Lay's Quadrumvirate of Heat — In the interminably ringing words (or rather, word) of that subtly grating, yet bemusingly bucolic, turn-of-the-century celebrity chef, "BAM!

"Bam" indeed, though multiplied by four. This flavorful foursome layers spice upon spice, and aye, this spice is nice. The tamest, though no shrinking violet, is Hot Sauce. Its tangy and vinegary edge and garlicky savor make it a welcome luncheon sidecar. The two Flamin' Hots are relentlessly flavorful, perspiratory gauntlets. Though preference twixt the two is likely a tossup, I proffer a generous hat-tip to the Kettle iteration, as its bodacious bite is an ably rugged match to the full-frontal flavoring. The most ambitious offering is the Flamin' Hot Dill Pickle. Delivering in spades with a sumptuous tang and a ferocious heat, methinks this will accompany a burger or a sub with an even-more-apt gusto than the aforementioned Hot Sauce. Though, again, one can't lose either way — or, said better — any fourwise.

"BAM! × 4 = YUM!"

Bonus Content Rewind: For some reason, after a spotty introduction (of single-serving bags) to the local markets, these never quite nested in NE Ohio. 'Til now, it seems. After a 3-year hiatus, I was finally able to score a haul of (full-size!) bags at a local Meijer. They are epical edibles.

Great Lakes Michigan Cherry BBQ — This is different. Hailing from Traverse City, these kettle-cooked beauties are not greasy, the smallish chips retaining their skins. The delicate BBQ flavoring leans toward the sweet side, with just a touch of sharpness. Of course, the real story here — the "different" — is the cherry. Relievedly, it's a natural cherry flavor/aroma which, though pronounced (the reservedness of the BBQ helps in this), is never aggressive. One could easily imagine a "cherry" chip getting too cute for its own good, yet this doesn't, thankfully. This may be different, but it's different good.

I'm curious. Has anyone here been on a Zoom meeting when one of the attendees is eating potato chips unmuted?
