    I went into my local convience store to get some chips for Thanksgiving and lo and behold, they had Stateline Potato Chips on the shelf. Wow! These are the best chips ever and have been unavailable for the past 20 years. I asked the owner when he started to stock them and he said he's had them for about three months now. (Damn that South Beach Diet! [​IMG])

    As far as I can tell, they taste just like I remember them, although I didn't come across any "burnt chips" in the bag. [​IMG]

    Ugh. Burnt chips suck. What's worse are those that have green on them. I still have no idea what that stuff is. BLEH!

    There was, maybe still is, a place in Salem, NH called Granite State potato chips where you could buy a bucket and get them made right there. Don't know if they were the best tasting, but it brings back memories.

    I'm not familiar with this brand being down here in Houston, but I'm always open to trying out other brands of potato chips[​IMG] I don't mind some of those burnt edges,reminds me of the old fashioned chips from years ago[​IMG]

    The aforementioned link also explains that brownish chips aren't "burnt", they're just made from potatoes with more sugar in them than normal due to having them sit around for a while.

    But it's slightly contradictory because it says they aren't burnt, but it does say they are "Carmelized", which is what happens when you 'burn' sugar....ok, maybe not exactly BURN, but I can't think of another word for it.

    Well, I do get quite a few actually burnt corn chips when I go to my favorite local Mexican place, and I love it. I greatly prefer them to unburnt and always hope they leave them in a little too long the day I come in.

    Chu Gai: I live in Salem and can tell you that Granite State is still there. You can still buy it buy the bucket or by the bag. When I was little, my mom used to work there and she'd often have me there with her. She'd often give me a big pickle, a bag of potato chips, and a soda to snack on.
