It started about a year ago.  I was getting a sandwich at my campus library’s cafe, and I saw them.  Miss Vickie’s Kettle Cooked potato chips.  I’d never had kettle cooked potato chips before, so I was intrigued.  I took a bad of that, and ended up eating it all.  That started my love affair with kettle cooked potato chips.

Ever since then, I’ve made it a point to get some when they are relatively chip, and to find a variety I like as much as Miss Vickie’s, which isn’t sold in large bags, at least not in this part of the U.S.  I haven’t yet been able to quite succeed.  Miss Vickie’s chips have a certain texture and thickness to them, and also a certain taste, that I can’t precisely match with other brands.  I never expected to get the exact same chips, as that’s impossible, but something close would be nice.

I think the closest chip thus far has been the Cap Code brand kettle chips.  They’re pretty nice.  I has some whilst at the Greater Hartford Open this summer, and I must say, they come in a close second.  Right now, however, mostly due to price, I’m stuck with Lays.  I don’t know…I like ’em, but they’re just not the same.
