While the bag looks like the original did, the chips don't look like they have much seasoning on them.
While we're on the subject of the retro chips, wonder how many folks remember a great accessory that would go with several bags of these and a couple of those really cheap, store brand, onion and sour cream dips that used to sell for about 29 cents back then. They used to call them Mary Gins and some knockoffs were called Merry Gins. These were indespensible back then along with a plastic, cafeteria serving tray b4 working up an appetite for your chips and that freezer full of the cheap, 10" Totinio's frozen Pizza on Friday or Saturday nights while you were contemplating the molecular biology of the fibers in the shag rug on the floor with your friends. Need I mention the perfect pairing of Boone's Farm Apricot wine with the chips?
Kirschner's Rock Concert or Midnight Special on late night TV with the Wolfman?
Just wanted to add a little historical context to the reason the chips were sold and how they used to be eaten as head food to those of you too young or too old to recall partaking this weekend sacrament and the transubstantiation that occured after eating them.
To those of you that do remember the 'gins. Did any of you ever see or own any miniature hamsters that fit inside of them?
I didn't think so.
