Do they still make Wise chips? I haven't seen them anywhere in years. They absolutely were the thinnest and crispiest.



I probably don't eat potato chips more than 3 or 4 times a year - if that. Now I prefer the thicker Kettle Cooked variety.



I was never a huge fan of Lays or Utz.
They still make Wise. I usually buy the small 25 cent bag from the corner bodega. Some stores charge more for the same size.

I don't get them very often either. Just a small bag once ore twice a year is enough to satisfy me.

Really? Where? I haven't seen those 25 cent bags since I lived in NY.



I love "Wise". - including the burned chips.

Wow. I just never see them where I currently live.



I really d like the Kettle Chips and the Cape Cod style chips, which are more substantial and delicious in their own way.



Everything in moderation.

My dad used to work at Continental Bakery off Rt 128, Newton (?) that was Drake's. We never wanted for Yodels or any other goodie Drake's made.

Did they have a factory in Mansfield, too? One of the neighborhood moms (had like 12 kids) got a part-time job there. In not that much time, she gained a noticeable amount of weight.

That's what I love about Wise potato chips. When you want the thin, crispness of the Lay's style, but with the depth of potato flavor that comes with a well cooked potato chip like kettle cooked chips.

Also that trademark shade of blue bag just screams "bag of chips" to me.

Give a foodie a time machine, and this is the kind of thing we’d do.. not assassinate Hitler or something more historically meaningful. I’d go to the 80’s or 90’s and bring back a big bag of PB Max candies.

As for potato chips, I guess I don’t think thin is an advantage. I love kettle chips.

IMO, the best chip of all time was Laura Scudder's (I think) made with peanut oil and sea salt. I used to buy them at a small organic grocery on the west side of LA. I can't recall the name. Wild Oats or something similar. I don't think they exist anymore. I can't stand kettle chips and I think the good brand that Whole Foods used to sell went out of business. (Michaels).
