According to the New York Times, it's the Kettle brand lightly salted variety. I believe the attorney general's office should look into the Times rankings (just kidding). My only question: How could they leave out Cape Cod Dark Russets? For me, that dark brown crunchy beauty is so baked potato-y, so crisp, and just greasy enough that it should be enshrined in the National Potato Chip Hall of Fame, which unfortunately doesn't exist—as of yet.

Here's the Times's Top Ten:

  1. Kettle Brand Lightly Salted
  2. Cape Cod Old-Fashioned Kettle Cooked
  3. Lay's Kettle Cooked Original
  4. Herr's Kettle Cooked
  5. Troyer Farms Kettle Cooked
  6. Krunchers! Original Kettle Cooked
  7. Madhouse Munchies Kettle Cooked
  8. Original Lantchips Scandinavian Style
  9. Boulder Canyon Totally Natural
  10. Wise All-Natural
