Question about Potato Chips Styles

Well, I'm obviously not doing anything interesting tonight, so I'll ask this:

The Main Squeeze came home and threw a bag of potato chips on the couch (claiming it was a "dinner vegetable"... sigh). And it was a bag of Lays "wavy" style chips. The ones with a large krinkle cut.

I am normally not picky when it comes to salty snacks, but I inwardly frowned when I saw them. If I'm going to blow my fat percentage for the day, I would prefer my potato chips to be either kettle cooked with lots of curly and folded pieces to savour, or a Ruffles style (with a small, tight ridge).

Third world problem, I realize, but does anyone else feel strongly about their potato chips style?
