      OK Folks, I am a child of the 1970's.
       
      I saw these at Pathmark in New Jersey.  I did a double take and then did this
       

       
      I grabbed two bags, ran back in to pay for them, and zipped home nearly forgetting the milk I went out for.
       
      Do they tase the same as they did in the 1970's? In a word, YES !
      These taste PRECISELY as they did when I was a child.  I am in heaven!!!!
       
      The best part is they explain on the bag that the BAG is limited, but the chips look to be staying around !  WHEEEEEE !
       
      Go get them ASAP or if you need me to snag and ship, PM me.
       
      Cheers
      Ken

        Thanks for the report, KenKenobi.  Well, Annpeeples, looks like I was beaten to the punch, but at least we have a taste reference on these chips.  Personally, I love the old logo.  Why can't food manufacturers bring back and keep old logos and package designs?  People love nostalgia and retro.

            I plan to serve them to guests this weekend, or I would have already opened the bag.  But I'll definitely report back.

                          Annpeeples, I opened a bag, and although I don't  know whether it's the '70s recipe, I like 'em!  Along with a Throwback Pepsi, I ate some right out of the bag, made some chili cheese nachos, and also scooped them into some cheddar-jack pimento cheese.  All I can say is, they sure pass the YUM test!
                           
                          Note: They have more a lot more seasoning on them than is apparent on the package.

                                I was a pretty little kid in the 70's when they had them, but my Italian grandparents like their snacks. I remember the bag shown above, but the circle where you can see the chips was clear cellophane, not a picture of the chips. I don't remember *exactly* how they tasted, but they were pretty good this week.

                                  found these at A&P in Randolph...on sale for $2.50 ($1.49 off) for the larger size (not the $1.29 size)
                                   
                                  Just like the picture, it says Limited Edition on the top left. Got our daughters hooked already!
                                   
                                  Still taste as good as I remember, but the list of ingredients seems a lot longer.

                                    I finally found some and was not disappointed! Great on their own, and really good with a cream cheese/chili dip my niece made!

                                      Sounds like I finally got to taste what I missed in the '70s.
