Perhaps the J-W could take a grammar lesson. Should be "What IS your favorite kind of chips"

Momma's right. KIND is the subject of the sentence, and it's singular.

Ruffle with ridges potato chips! THEY ROCK!

Haven't had more than a handful of chips in the last five years. Yuck! Most are greasy, too salty or full of things I can't pronounce! . . Did have a few banana chips from The Merc recently. Yum!

Deep fried hand cut potatoes with a dousing of malt vinegar. A side of fish filets completes the meal. Traditionally wrapped in newspaper.

When the vinegar dissolves the newsprint (as well as a minute part of the paper itemslf) it adds a very unique taste.

Soy ink is bad through (added taste wise)...stay away from those newspapers!! Black & white seems best too...when you put different colored inks in, it just wrecks it; in other words, never use USA Today!!

It used to be one on my shoulder, but I've lightened up quite a bit. My currently fav chips are the ones 'Round the Corner (wink) at Esquina. Along with their killer salsa, they are delicious.

Ms. Crump! Oh, Ms. Crump! Bea repeated my answer! Iz that a violation? Please don't disappearededed her, though, cuz she already lives in/near Phoenix. That would be like double jeopardy.

oops. A clear OTS violation on my part if there ever was one. Maybe I could just lose my posting rights for a couple of days.

Paint chips. Especially that extra good lead variety. Not recommended for humans, especially the little ones, though. But for my kind, how do you think we got to be this color?

Only if they are made in the Topeka Frito-Lay plant, which about 90% of the ones sold in Lawrence are. Yes, I can (unlike most) tell the difference. Just ask customer service at Dillons, once and awhile they get an odd bag that didn't come from Topeka and I ALWAYS take it back for an exchange.

I guess if the Topeka plant ever closes down it'll be "Guys" for me. (i'll die before I touch a freakishly mutated canister of 'Pringles'!!)

Cow Chips. Actually I really like Arts and Marys. Best bbq chips around, great crunch. Not super salty like Guys blegh.

Three out of four are the same family from Tulsa.
This is a poor example of an OTS random sample

. Seems like the interviewer just ran outside the building and took a quick couple of pics from one group and an extra.

Boooo. Poor reporting.

Depends on what I am doing at the time! One month old angus cow chips are the best for tossing. Make sure they are not so fresh as to be messy nor too dry to fall apart in mid air. As dry as it has been this year, you didn't even need to contend with the aroma.

blindrabbit 6 years ago

Just make sure they do not contain Olestra, which was marketed as a vegetable oil replacement; supposed to be lower in saturated fat. Wife and I picked up a bag of these a few years back while on a driving road trip. After eating the contents, it became clear to us that the chips should have been marketed as a replacement for Ex-Lax. Talk about cleaning you out, curtailed the driving that day several hours than we had planned. Lost a couple of pounds in the process!
