Dill Pickle Flavored Potato chips Sat, 04/30/05 1:30 AM (permalink)
While visiting Dollywood and the Smokies, I tasted Dill Pickle flavor potato chips. I liked the taste but wondered if this was a flavor unique to the south as I have never encountered it here in Oregon. Have any other roadfooders run into this flavor?

    I've seen them in South Orange County. Tried some of my son's, and decided it would be a great tasting chip if it weren't for that nasty dll pickle flavor.

      I always thought they were an upstate NY thing. I had a roomate years ago from Niagra Falls who loved Little Kings Cream Ale, Beef on Weck- what??? and Dill potato chips. He managed to discover the Italian Beef sandwich here in Chicago and is probably missing them since he's back in Lewiston NY.

        Timms Cascade potato chips makes dill flavored chips. Check the local stores in Oregon. I assume they have a web site too.

            I shy away from flavored chips ... it always seems like MSG is part of the flavor formula.

            Every once in a while, I'll come across a flavored chip w/o MSG and enjoy them to a degree.

                It might work for you. I always find that it leaves my tounge a little numb. I guess I just prefer real flavor over enhanced flavor.

                    To all,

                    We have them in Maryland. In fact we have them in our kitchen right now.

                        Dearfolk,
                        No matter how many new flavors of chips manufacturers introduce, I doubt anybody'll ever come up with livermush flavored potato chips in North Carolina... nor lutefisk ones for Minnesota and Wisconsin, ya know.
                        Dill pickle flavored ones aren't half bad, but I'm not much of a "chipper" unless I find an excellent hometown brand... and then I begin with the plain ones and work my way through the portfolio of flavors (if any).
                        Sweet potato chips, though, are a whole nother thing... I would NEVER be able to lose any weight if I had a local chippery that produced those around... especially one that had a really well done barbecue flavor.
                        I think I'll start another thread regards the oddest potato chip flavors anyone's ever seen.
                        Uncrunchingly, Ort. Carlton in Local-Chipless Athens, Georgia.

                          I used to like Yo-Ho potato chips here in Chicago before they changed their recipe.

                            Dill pickle chips are common here in Canada. Pretty much every chip company makes some sort of dill pickle chip. Even Lay's Canada makes "Dill-icious" Doritos. I can't stand dill pickle chips, so I can't say what they're like.

                              Lays Has Dill Pickle flavor here in Michigan. I have a bag in the car, but haven't opened it yet. I LOVE a sub sandwich dripping with oil and vinegar, a cold dill pickle and potato chips! Hopefully the dill pickle chips will capture a little bit of that enjoyment for me!

                                  I tried the dill pickle flavored chips a few months back when I saw them written about here. I liked them at first, but found that eating them made my tongue sore, so don't know if it was the flavoring that I didn't tolerate well, or what, but quit buying them. Also had the same experience with the salt and pepper chips. I have yet to find a potato chip that tastes as good as they did 40-50 years ago. And Charles Chips were the best way back then.

                                  But the best ones I've ever had were when I was a kid and there were stores here in the Columbus area that made their own chips and they were really good. The original Big Bear Store on Lane Avenue was one of them, and Moby's, a department store in downtown Columbus, was another. We really relished those fresh chips.

                                    I love the Dill Pickle Doritos. Old Dutch recently launched a Creamy Dill flavor in addition to the original Dill Pickle. I prefer the Creamy Dill.

                                      I've had the Lay's Dill Pickle chips...and well I was disappointed in them. They taste nothing like Dill Pickle...just really salty and vinegary and nothing like the sweet sourness of dill pickles. And trust me, I know dill pickles...I eat them a heck of a lot.

                                          Golden Flake has them here, haven't tried them. I do like their "hot" flavor though.

                                            For the folks out there, like me, who are allergic to MSG.. it is a big deal... I can't deal with it, makes me sneeze for literally an hour if I have any... and if the food is fresh.. why do you need it.. a favor enhancer invented in China when there was no refridgeration... only cheap Chinese or Japanese restaurants use it....

                                              Personally I cannot tolerate MSG. It does strange things to my system. I get terrible stomach cramps with it.

                                              I first noticed this about 30 years ago and I did not know what it was. I discovered this after about 10 trips to the same quality restaurant in Knoxville. Their food was great but everytime I took guest there, I hurt like crazy for a while.

                                              It was their salad and they used MSG to preserve it or to keep it fresh.

                                              Since then I avoid MSG. Occasionaly I screw up and forget to ask and boy do I pay for it.

                                                Dill chips? I always thought they were a southern thing. Here in Texas I know they're pretty common along with Big Red and Dr. Pepper. I went up north (Burlington, Wisconsin) back in 1997 for the first time ever and was horrified to discover that Dr. Pepper was very difficult to come by and that a lot of people didn't like the taste--too medicine-y they said. I did run into a drink at a convenience store that sold something like a root beer; it was called Black Cow but I don't think that was the name of the brand.
