Where can you buy All-Dressed chips?
Of course you can get the Canadian version of the chips across the northern border, but many American brands have adopted the flavor as well. If you want to get your hands on a bag and taste the craze for yourself, here’s where to find them.
The All-Dressed Ruffles are an introduction to this Canadian delicacy. The stark creases that the brand is known for hold onto the flavor dust, but Ruffles’ seasonings are more mellow than some of the other brands, giving you a nice blend of sweetness and tanginess.
Ruffles’ version is available across the country, and you can find a local retailer or order online on their website.
If you’ve ever had Whole Foods’ 365 brand chips, you know these are super thin, perfectly crispy chips -- and they make a nice vessel for the All-Dressed flavor.
Many stores across the country stock the flavor, but they are not available in all regions so check your store’s website for availability.
These are the chips I grew up eating, so they hold a special place in my heart. Regardless of my nostalgic bias, Humpty Dumpty’s version is notable because it comes smothered on thick-ridged chips and is the most vinegar-forward of the four varieties I’ve tried. Sure, the tangy vinegar and sweet tomato flavor become almost tongue-numbing at the half-bag mark, but the punchy flavor makes it worth it.
Humpty Dumpty is stocked in stores around Maine, but if you’re in another state you can order online through Box of Maine or Amazon.
Old Dutch (and other Canadian brands)
The mainstay is worthy of the hype. When the Americans riffed on this Canadian classic flavor, they came up with a flavorful, in-your-face combination of four flavors, but the original Old Dutch crisps are a delicate balance of sweet and umami without being overwhelming.
Old Dutch Chips are easy to find in Canada, but if you want them in the states, you can order their version on Amazon.
