Ready salted is the socialist's choice.

I tend to eat them whilst perusing the Guardian and sipping on a glass of sparkling - but I do feel guilty about it so it's alright.

CostCo is the chip, nacho, flavored and regular, lovers paradise. Spacious wide aisles of large bags of crunchy goodness.
Both fried and baked. Potatoe chips of all kinds - even the legendary Bar-B-Q Chips. Plain Doritos, Cheesey Doritos and large 2 kilo bags of gourmet corn nachos just pleading to be smothered in cheese, baked till the melted gooey goodness is dripping off and then dunked in the fresh salsa, with cilantro, they have in the cooler section.

I used to love crisps when I was a kid, but stopped liking them as an adult....but if you put a bag of Walker's Salt and Vinegar Crisps in front of me, I get absolutely weak in the knees and will finish the whole bag off!!!

I am nearly always disappointed with chips at 7 etc. I still think nothing beats German Paprika Chips, Chio are good, but so are many of the cheap noname brands. I do enjoy French plain salt and British salt'n vinegar, too, though.

In Taiwan I eat peanuts or Pea Crackers (可樂果).
