I saw those on the shelf...  

 

The only thing preventing me from putting on my shoes and going there right now is my desire to get through my intermittent fast today.

I think they're decent.  Little too "beef bullion-y" for me.

Yes.  Although they are branded on the outside of the store as Pick n Save, all of the store brand merch has the Kroger label on it.

 

It's been a good thing.  The McFarland Pick n Save is so much better now that Kroger came in... although they moved a bunch of stuff around and I can't find some stuff very easily yet.

I have found that these weirdly-flavored chips appear better than they really are. I had some BBQ rib flavored chips and also gyro-flavored chips. There was cheddar and beer Kettle chips (didn't taste like cheddar OR beer) and I've had some others that were just not good. The Kettle Pepperoncini ones were quite tasty but they tasted more like a pickle than pepperoncini.

I think most of them don't serve the purpose of a chip very well. A chips job is to accompany a sandwich, compliment not compete with.

So, a chip is essentially a substitute for a woman.

Beyond a few basic varieties, I find most of these chips or whatever with spray-on flavorants kinda disturbing.
