Oh yeah, when I was a kid I scarfed Ketchup chips several bags at at time. I always wondered why the Canadians had all these great chip flavors (dill pickle, hot dog, kechup, etc) and we only had a few in the US. My parents had a cabin on Lake Huron north of Sarnia, so for many years we spent our whole summer up there (mom was a teacher and so had summers off and dad would get up on the weekends).

Ketchup fries rock, right? Ketchup chips likewise.

I think my flavorite brand was Humpty Dumpty, but they got taken over by Old Dutch. Sposa be the same chips in the new bag.

I only remember the Hostess brand chips. Do they still have Hostess chips?

Wow, I saw these chips in Canada back around 1970 and it is just now finally getting to the USA.

Here I thought Salt & Vinegar chips, and Pickle chips were super toll! I've been under a rock, apparently.

my impreza has the hill-assist. I hate it so much, especially because it fights against the clutch sometimes.. WRX is a fun car to drive, a difficult starter car, the clutch is heavy, short, and sensitive, so it will force you to become a very proficient manual driver in no time! Hope you like it!
