Potato chip flavors all over the world

The first time I went to a supermarket in southeastern PA, around 1988 (I’d just started school in Delaware), I was astounded at the variety of potato chips on offer. I’d never seen chips fried in lard before. In my part of NJ back then, it was basically Lay’s, Wise, and Pringles–maybe Utz also if you were lucky.


Not exactly a potato chip, but I got some Japanese Cheetos from Nijiya recently. They taste like American Cheetos but quite a bit sweeter.
