Where for art thou? - Tostitos Gold Tortilla Chips

We love tortilla chips.  With salsa, with guac, with basically anything.  Please don't mention how we shovel salsa into our mouths to clean out the jar.  We just really love chips and condiments.

But whatever happened to our favorite chip, the Tostitos Gold?  For those who are unfamiliar, they were really thick chips intended to sustain a hearty dip.  Talk to us.

We couldn't even find a picture of the bag on Google Images.  What we did find was the Bite-Size version which is trash.  We've had them, and they don't taste as good.  And we're no food critic, but how does making a chip thicker to hold a big dollop of guac and then miniaturize it make sense?

Our hearts sadden with the extinction of these chips.  However, we suppose you can just file this under lost and forgotten joys in our life such as Jell-O pudding pops, Squeez-It juice drinks, and our virginity.

Candle-light vigil to be held tonight after 90210.

"Have'A Corn Chips" (google them)

Best corn chip EVER... bar none.
Find them. Buy them. Eat them. Repeat.
You'll be glad you did.

I agree with you. They are the only chips on the market to be truly "restaurant style" because they come close to chips at a great Mexican restaurant.

What is this world coming to?

I guess we'll have to go back to regular Tortitos, and 400 ab crunches. (impressive by the way)
