The Top Ten
1 Lays

If it were possible to communicate palatability and reach the taste buds with perfection only to inform that, in the world, there exists a substance that will satisfy: the taste, such delicious crunch, yum-succulent nutritional grapple and feed the hunger... at the same time the mind travels at mega-warp velocity to break the sound barrier... so that you are moved to utter the words, "That was good. I think I'll have some more." Lays Potato Chips "Yeah, That's Lays"! By Michelle Crawford-Sapenter, President, Excel Marketing-Texas

2 Pringles

Ever heard of the new tortilla Pringles potato chips? Well, it is the best thing I ever tasted, a perfect mixture of tortilla chips and Pringles, and the sour cream-flavored ones - man, you gotta taste them!

Pringles are the best, with a big variety of flavors, and who doesn't like licking it before shoving it into your mouth?

I just really don't like the original flavor, but every other flavor is great!

3 Ruffles

They have ridges. You can't beat that!

4 Utz

The perfect potato chip. It would rank higher if people on the west coast knew about it.

The only brand we buy, better than Lays, no doubt!

The best kettle chips ever. Bar none.

5 Kettle

Yum!!! Kettle is so good, it's one of the best chip brands anywhere! It's not bad for you and they have really good tastes! I especially love the Himalayan salt kind!

Oh boy, I love kettle chips. I love Red Rock Deli and Smiths, also Doritos. I grew up eating kettle chips, and I am still a kid, sort of. Delicious.

6 Wise

The best. Had 'em since I was a kid. Over 65 years.

7 Herr's

The most amazing chip there is.

8 Cape Cod

The best potato chip because it is less salty and has more potato taste, with the right amount of crispness!

9 Chipsy

Tastes like Lays. You can buy them in Montenegro, Serbia, Croatia, or Bosnia.

10 McCoy's

Crispy delight... I love the sour cream and onion and the smoky BBQ flavors!

The Contenders
11 Better Made
12 Red Rock Deli

Red Rock Deli chips are amazing! They're the only chips that actually taste like they're supposed to, and they're the healthiest on this list.

There is nothing better than the unbeatable flavor of Red Rock Deli chips. They are so good! Trust me and go get a packet of sweet chili & sour cream. They even have sweet potato chips, which make them the healthiest on this whole list. They also are made very carefully. You can tell.

Thank me later.

Yum, oh so delicious. I love the flavors like there are pepper and lime and honey soy chicken, Dijonnaise mustard - oh boy, what a chip.

13 Amica Chips
14 Uncle Ray's

Makes the all-time best BBQ potato chip.

15 Old Dutch

Zero trans fat, lowest in fat compared to "Lays, Ruffles, etc." This is my number 1 chip. Actually tastes like a potato. Made in Canada too.

The best dill pickle chips on the planet! I've been enjoying them for 35 years now.

Hands down the best in the business. Quality over quantity.

16 Miss Vickie's

Very crunchy kettle style. Unusual flavor combos. Nice when I want something unique. Made in Canada.

17 Golden Flake
18 Grippo's
19 San Carlo

San Carlo tastes totally different from the American potato chips, which are fresh, crispy and, more importantly, stylish and special.

Truly the best of the best! Italians have always done a great job in making food!

20 Ballreich's

Established in 1920, a 4-generation, original family-owned, regional potato chip company in Ohio. They deliver locally and worldwide via the internet. THEY are the BEST!

I so LOVE these chips. They are hearty with just the right amount of salt!

21 Deep River

Best chips ever! Salted to perfection and really crunchy. I bring this every day for a snack.

22 Walkers

They have such an amazing taste they should be in the top ten at least.

Probably the most notable British crisp brand. And probably the best one too.

23 Pata
24 Tayto

I'm Irish-Canadian and spent my summers in Ireland. Brings back memories. Love cheese & onion, om nom nom.

25 Smith's

Barbecue flavor is unbeatable.
