This message board is so informative that I always know whats up and everyone on here knows the exact ins and outs of the industry. There is nothing like this for snacks/chips (at least I haven't found one). I post on taquitos but no one EVER replies to anything, it sucks.
Anyway, thanks for giving me a place to be nerdy about soda pop.

The problem with chips and related snacks is that Frito Lay is really the only nationwide chip company. Everything else is either local or regional.
Although I do believe that Snyder's of Hanover pretzels are pretty easy to find outside this area..and Herr's potato chips are in most Walmarts, directly shipped through the WM warehouses.
I'm spoiled, I live really close to Pennsylvania, the chip/pretzel capital of the US. I can find tons of different brands of chips and pretzels.

Chips and beverages do go together. A bag of kettle cooked potato chips and a root beer sounds good.

Snyders of Berlin - SE PA and W Md
Middleworth's - Williamsport Area
Gibbles Red hot
Herr's Red Hot
Uncle Rays Red Hot
In the Southwest, there is only Frito Lay, Tom's - Which is horrible, and Uncle Rays.

Jack - what about Mike-Sells?
I agree, Snyders of Berlin are excellent.
