Map Of America Reveals The Favorite Potato Chip Brands In Each Region Of The Country


Seriously, is there a more perfect snack food than potato chips?

Oh sure, there are other snacks that are good, but the fact that Americans eat almost two billion pounds of potato chips every year makes for a pretty good case that it is at the top of the list.

One of the best things about potato chips is the variety. The sheer number of flavors and brands are hard to fathom.

In addition to the usual suspects like Lays, Ruffles, Doritos, Pringles, Tostitos, and Fritos, there are literally over 100 regional brands spread all across this great nation of ours.

So, because people are so passionate about their potato chips (as Chris Evans once found out), the folks over at VinePair (the same people who put together a list of the perfect beer pairing for every potato chip flavor) did a little research to determine America’s 33 favorite regional potato chip brands and put them all on a map of the country.
