My favorite game show?

Tic-Tac-Dough with Wink Martindale

I would like to have been a contestant on Match Game.  The version that aired in the 70s, not the craptacular remake.

Exactly.  You can't expect me to sit out on the beach all day without a cold beverage.

In all seriousness, and despite my gif, I chose Beach 4 for the umbrella and cocktails (I burn so fast).  And I like hanging out with friends, but it doesn't need to be a huge group - just a few is good.

Beach 4 when I was young, Beach 2 now that I'm old and I don't drink anymore. Get off my lawn you young whippersnappers!

Tall and lanky is mesmerizing me. I can't look away.

I realized while looking over the options that Beach 1 would have been my jam as a kid. And yes, with the coffee. I started young with that.

Beach 4! (I find it hard to concentrate reading when I am outside or Beach 2 would be an alternative).

For Realsies I would pick Beach 2.

 

But keep in mind I would be under an umbrella wearing a hat, long sleeve shirt and pants covered in spf 50.

Beach 4, for the music and a few friends.  Dr. Pepper would have to qualify as my cocktail though!

Beach 1.

As a child when me and my family went away on summer vacation, we would wake up at sunrise and go down to the shore and look for whole sand dollars.  My dad had a garage full of them.

It is a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, and therefore you have no opinion to share about things happening here right now or this weekend. You have been invited to a friend's house for an annual party where copious amounts of snack foods will be served. There will be little meatballs on sticks. There will be seven layer bean dip. There will be pigs in a blanket. There will be fresh vegetables, and there will be cookies.

And there will be chips, SO MANY chips. By an amazing coincidence, all of the chips on this distant, ancient world are exactly the same as we can find in our stores today.

However, if you mean just potato chips - these!

Least favorite - hmm...  I recently had some squid flavored potato chips that were kind of awful.  They smelled like the stinkiest worst cat food and tasted like the fishiest fake fish flavoring.  My cat didn't even like them.

I do not mean only potato chips. I'd even include Cheetos as a "chip" for this discussion if that's somebody's favorite.

You'd find me hoarding these if they appeared in a bowl:

Utz No Salt Added Original Potato Chips.

I am a vegetarian.  My favorite party is a party of one.   Community snack bowls, just ick, and don't get me started on double dippers.

My stomach can't handle spicy flavors.  It isn't so much that I hate spicy chips, it is just that my body won't tolerate them, and bleeds in the presence of them.

Utz Classic or Utz Dark Idaho Russet chips.

 

Bonus:  Any chip that has the word spicy/heat.  Also any wavy or ruffle type chip.

My fav is any fresh made (at the least, made that day) corn tortilla chips with super spicy freshly made salsa. If they are blue corn tortilla chips, that is even better.

I despise Pringles and anything that tastes like the myriad chemicals used to keep the other chemicals stable on the shelf for an indeterminate future.

This is hard!  I like most plain chips, especially if they are rippled or wavy.  My favorite flavored chips are Charles BBQ or Moore's BBQ (which are a challenge to find).  My hand will be in many bowls of chips!  I even like Fritos!

I'll avoid anything hot and spicy, though.

Favorite chip on its own: Cheetos Puffs

Favorite chip with a dip: Tortilla chips with guacamole, pico de gallo, or spinach, cheese & artichoke dip

Get away from me:  Fritos.  And any potato chip that actually tastes like potato; I hate potatoes, and am only here for the grease and flavoring (e.g. sour cream and onion).

I try not to buy potato chips on the regular, so I allow myself a treat of genuine British crisps when I find them (I eat them daily when in the UK).

Sour cream and onion without dip. With dip, plain Ruffles (I find they stand up to the dip better), unless it's cheese or bean dip, then some type of tortilla chip.

My favorite that I can't find here is Herr's creamy dill pickle chips. Our vending machine at work had them for a while, but not any more, and I have never seen them in a store here.

It's hard to pick a favorite chip.

My least favorite is anything with the words "hot," "flaming" or "spicy" in the name.

I just picked up a bag of these to try them. Also picked up the Voodoo chips.

The Voodoo chips are good - at least all the flavors I've tried. :D Another one of my faves I cannot get here in MN is Better Made.  I'm not a huge regular potato chip fan, but these I will finish off.  ETA: I stupidly went to their website and saw this "U pick 12 for $14.95" deal they now have.  I may be getting a shipment in my future.

Love me the thin and crispy

Growing up in Germany, these Paprika chips were my favorites. Can't get them here in Canada.

Now I developed a preference to the Salt and Vinegar ones from Miss Vickie.

Grape Nuts.  Growing up we only had Cornflakes and Weetabix and, later, Raisin Bran.

I used to live in the town where Weetabix are made.  Tuesday & Friday's were baking days and the whole town smelled sooo good!

Re:  Chips.  Our local grocery store sells handmade chips in their deli area that are awesome.

If I'm dipping: Ruffles: which are a tasty, sturdy chip.  And that is 100% my preference when I eat chips.  

Non-dipping non-flavored production varieties: Deep River Kettle chips

Flavored chips:  Kettle brand Crinkle cut Salt & Pepper, Cape Cod Sweet Mesquite.  

Tostitos with lime are tasty.

 

Hate: anything dill or salt & vinegar and cheetos.  🤢

Okay, I don't eat chips very often because if I bought them the whole bag would be gone in a second, heh. 

I like Lays the best. For Lays I will eat Original, Salt and Vinegar, or BBQ. 

Doritos Cheddar or anything Doritos spicy is my jam. 

Miss Vickie's Jalapeno chips are also good. 

I hate Pringles.  And any original flavoured potato chip other than Lays.

I like Doritos, though my favorite flavor were Jumpin' Jack Cheddar, which I'm surprised to see from a quick search might exist now, as I remembered them from a long time ago.  Apparently they brought them back and I wasn't notified!  I also like Cheetos and Lays Barbecue or Sour Cream and Onion.  As for least favorite, a few years ago, my father and I went to watch the local minor league baseball team, and they had supposedly special barbecue chips the concessions people prepared with a meal (burger and drink).  They were so nasty that when we went back two days later (the visiting player I wanted to see hadn't played the first time), we got the same meal but told them they could keep the chips.
