1. Do you shop locally?

2. How much shopping do you do online?

3. Do you antique, thrift shop, or go to flea markets or yard sales?

<<If I find them I will definately do a comparison. I did compare the ingredients and like I stated before, there is no difference.YOU find them better quality but there is no actual proof there is for what I have compared the 2 chips. 

Not sure why you think there is a problem with saying you like one chip over another. But if you are going to say they are of better quality and cooked with better quality, then you really should have something to back that up other than your own opinion :)>
OH my spring.  The ingredients are different, they use different types of potates from two different countries and the Lay's uses corn oil in addition to sunflower oil.  The cooking methods are different, one cooks in small batches, one cooks in large.  "I" find those difference to make a difference in taste to "me", as I have said mutiple times.
I don't have a problem with saying I like one chip over another, I have said so about a dozen times now, in this thread alone!  Yes, it's my opinion the ingredients are better and the cooking method is better, but I haven't said otherwise a single time....yes, it's my opinion, I stated that from the start.  What is the problem here?  I mean other than the lack of reading the posts, lol.

They don't take off the skin and the don't use GMO oil.  Not that I care.  I am tired of reading about chips.

You can believe the ingredients are different but I have shown you that they are not. 

Again, I have no problem with you saying you like the chip better but don't say because they are a better quality chip, cooked with better quality and have different ingredients when these are all just your opinion. Not the opinion of an actual survey.

That's all. Thanks and enjoy those chips :)

My limit on stillettos is about 3 1/2". They are harder to walk in than platforms. These have a decent platform on them, so it is like walking in 3" heels vs 5 1/2". I find wedges to be the most comfortable of all, but they aren't always appropriate b/c they're casual. I'm getting to the point where I won't tolerate uncomfortable shoes, I have a gorgeous pair of black patent platforms that I adore but they just hurt. So I'm going to take them to the sorority house and give them to whomever wants them. 

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

<<So basically you just like the taste of those chips more. I understand but not sure why you keep saying they have better quality ingredients and better cooking methods when you don't really know that. And it seems you don't care (which is fine) because that is what you like better. >>

Again, "I" have said that "I" belive they have better ingredients and better cooking methods and yes from my taste and reading the labels, that is what "I" believe.  "I" do care, that's why I read the labels and gave it the old taste test and "I" proved "myself" correct.  "I" believe they are better because "I" believe the ingredients are better and "I" believe the cooking method is better.

Really, all you had to do was read the very first comment to get that message.

But you can find quality products that taste even better.  I like a good potato chip, there is this new brand that I found that is imported from England because frankly, they make THE BEST chips or rather crisps.   So yes, even quality makes a difference in potato chips, imo.  I think we have about 3 different kinds of potato chips at home currently.  </span></p><p><span style="font-size:13px">Can't stand Doritos, blech.  </span></p><p><span style="font-size:13px">Found them - </span><a href="https://www.tyrrellscrisps.co.uk/" rel="nofollow">https://www.tyrrellscrisps.co.uk/</a>    OMG, major good chips.</p>

I agree.  Thre are definite taste and quality differences in brands of chips.   But, when I've not had a chip for months, plain old Lay's sure do taste darn good!   Mmmmm. Salty.  Crunch.  lol

LOL....and I find it sad when people enjoy food so much that they "live to eat".  To each his own, indeed. :)

That's true, Platform and wedge heels are eeasier.  I have a pair of joan&davids that have a 3" stiletto heel but I can't wear them a lot b/c they're so difficult to walk in. 

Then I would say that is just that shoe, not just the height of it.
