There are seven to 11 reasons that I seek out 7-Eleven, and they are all chips. Except for the occasional and highly specific Slurpee craving, most people don’t necessarily go out of their way to visit the convenience store. It’s there when you need a bottle of water, when you're grabbing bags of Haribo gummies to sneak into the movies, or when you just really want a lukewarm taquito.
But it is also quite possibly the best chip store in the country.
While it does carry a decent selection of the standard brands -- Pringles, Ruffles, Lays -- the chips I am most interested in are those made by 7-Eleven itself. Called 7-Select, the brand introduced its in-house line in 2011 and it has a breadth of flavors and textures unlike any other company. Whatever kind of chip you are in the mood for, 7-Select will probably have a corresponding bag.
