Poore Brothers Potato Chips Sat, 09/27/08 6:42 PM (permalink)
Hi everyone :) Has anyone had these amazingly good chips? I just found them in a Walgreen's drug store today and am in love. I don't think that they are regional (I am in NJ) but I don't know where they are from. The bag reads 'Intensely Different Kettle Cooked Potato Chips'. I'm just glad that I only got the 2.5 oz bag. Anyone else a fan of these?

    I bought quite a few bags of Poore Brothers potato chips, as well as their Burger King licensed products in Dollar Tree Stores in spring, 2008. After that, they disappeared from Dollar Tree. Here is the manufacturer's web site:

        I bought the salt and vinegar Poore Brother chips at Big Lots recently (in NJ)
        (maybe they upgraded from the Dollar Store to Big Lots?!?)

          The Poore Brothers Company originated in Phoenix AZ. They started expanding the number of flavors available several years ago. The Company hooked up with some Big money guys and started expanding via acquisitions and new plants. They do private label for a bunch of companies as well. They're now going to national distribution. Look out Frito Lay!

              I seem to remember a few years back, there were TGI Friday's Potato Skin chips at ShopRite. I think Mozzarella Stick chips, as well. Have not seen them for some time. But, I avoid ShopRite whenever possible.

                I wish Poore Brothers would bring back their Chinese mustard flavored potato chips.
