Totally agree. I grew up in Tacoma, WA, the home of Nalley's products, sadly, no longer with us.The best chips are still hot from the fryer. I never get tired of them. ... I like the ones that have more colour. The colour is caused my the sugars in the potato caramelizing, and it's yummy.
Nalley Valley (and it was) made potato chips and pickles. You could see the huge pickle barrels from the freeway, and on certain days, you could smell the chips! I can remember taking a tour of the plant, and getting chips still hot from the fryer. YUM!!
Back in her younger days, my SIL was a cucumber sorter.
