Whatever happened to Hannaford's barbecue chips? I mean, for a store-brand potato chip, their barbecue used to be tied for my favorite (tied with Humpty Dumpty Barbecue). Now they've changed the recipe and made it a "sweet" barbecue flavor, totally removing the distinction they had from other types, and totally ruining it for me. What were they thinking?

Oh, how I'd love to invent a time machine just to go back for some more of those chips as they used to be. Because, I for one, would be willing to pay MORE money than the bigger brands to taste their old recipe.

I agree! The old BBQ chips were markedly better. I also agree with Humpty Dumpty being the best. The trend now to only offer thickly cut ripple chips in BBQ flavor is disturbing. Bring back the semi transparent chips with the semi hot BBQ flavor!

I do get depressed when they change a good thing.

I remember when Hostess Potato chips were really really good.
I would be a kid and be some pleased to go into Canada and pick up a bag. Then.. poof Humpty Dumpty (this is what someone told me along time ago) bought them out.

So0oo people.. don't change the "good stuff."

I miss my Old Dutch Ketchup chips. I'll have my brother ship me some for Christmas. If they ever messed with the taste, I would be very sad. I can relate to the OP.
