Miss Vickie's Potato Chips

I just tried them for the first time at lunch today, and they were mighty good. I had the sea salt and malt vinegar flavor. Great with a sandwich. The package says they're distributed by Frito Lay, but also that they're "hand made style," whatever that means. Satisfyingly crunchy.

    A few years ago, I flew with Tiny Tim out of Cincinatti to Minneapolis. It was about two years before his death.. I thought he was a rather sloppy person. I remember thinking that he must have hit hard times. After that I saw where he had some type of party, maybe another marriage and it was a rather elaborate afair with lotsa limo's. Appearances are sometimes deceiving.

    I'm sorry. Your humor is going way over my head. I wasn't born until 1971. Anyway, try the chips sometime.

    Don't fret about the age thing... I just learned that Hip-Hop music isn't the updated version of Jack LaLaine Exercise Tapes.

    Herbert Khaury -- I saw Tiny Tim perform in the Village before he was famous.

    Dearfolk,
    God Bless Tiny Tim! - I own all four of his albums - three on Reprise and one issued on Bouquet that was immediately withdrawn because of a lawsuit. Now if I could just turn up his first 45 on Blue Cat Records,plus five or six of the Reprise ones I am myssyng....
    Herbert Buckingham Khaury did indeed get remarried not long before his death. He died in Minneapolis, which is a far cry from New York City.
    He and I are both bona-fide eccentrics, but he managed to carve out a career by being so. I'm still working on it...and trying to lose weight.
    Hmmm... maybe I need to go buy a ukulele. I could, after all, play it left-handed, like he did.

    P. S. I doubt that there's a Miss Vickie connection - from Mrs. Tiny Tim to Tulip's Mama to potato chips... smacks of dubiousity.

    Paul McCartney is left handed, too. I'd rather play like him than like Tiny Tim.

    I like the chips a lot as well. I always thought the B-B-Q version was particularly goo as it was not too fake or sugary tasting. But Dirty Chips have them beat...

    I know this doesn't have anything to do with the chips, but Miss Vicky of Tiny Tim fame, lives in South Jersey. Her current boyfriend is a Rabbi who is in jail for life for having his wife killed. Such a scandal in the Philly area the past couple years!!!!!!

    Well... since we are way off topic, I agree with Kristi S. I'd rather play like Paul than like Tim! I'm lucky, there's a great Beatle cover band that plays in Dallas every friday night. The base player has a left handed Hofner bass just like Paul.

    Now back to potato chips...

    Hello danimal,

    Miss Vickie's are yummy. They're a Canadian product & have been around a while here. Since the 80's perhaps (just guessing). My favourite is the salt & vinegar, but the plain is pretty good too. Very crunchy. Their jalapeno is not bad too.

    If you tried to tiptoe through the Miss Vickie's, you'd make a lot of noise.

    Hi kids,

    Just tried the new Miss Vickies flavor du jour - Black Pepper and Lime. It sounds kinda odd - but let me tell you - worth the price!

    Has anyone ever tried pepper on a fresh strawberry?

    DYN-O-MITE!
