Trader Joe's Hawaiian Style Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips

So far, I have not found the truly perfect salt & vinegar chip, but I've had loads of fun (and fat) trying. Trader Joe's's salt & vinegar chip is a real thing of majesty. Big, thick-cut chips deeply infused with a tang that, were it even a slight degree more intense, would be suffocating.

The overall effect is quite like performing oral sex with such vigor that you almost need to vomit, and yet in refraining from that, you experience an even greater pleasure than you ever expected. By comparison, something like Pringles is more like having a baby squirt pee in your mouth. Hm, now that I think about it, I doubt I've made anyone want to go out and eat potato chips, but perhaps I've brought out unsuspected fetishes in some of you.

Incidentally, I could swear these were once called "Hawaiian Justice", with the package depicting a pseudo-woodcut of some kind of 18th century kangaroo court type scene. A typically baffling/overly cutesy and probably offensive concept only Trader Joe's could come up with. Oh well, at least they didn't call it "Trader 'A'amakualenalena's Salt & Vinegar Volcano Chips" or some shit like that.
