I eat french fries maybe once or twice a year. I have taken to slicing potatoes, brushing them with olive oil, baking them, and then eating them with ketchup, but the idea of frying them is just gross. 

I like potato chips sometimes. Not too frequently, and I very rarely buy them myself. I usually only eat them if someone else brings them into my vicinity. 

I suppose baked potatoes served in the style of fries is my favorite, but my real favorite are brussels sprouts! It's just that brussels sprouts weren't an option.

Fries can be so damned good some places.  And potato chips .. like they say, can't eat just one.  I'm better off not having either around the house.

I like any major brand potato chips with sour cream and onion flavor.  Tongue

So, I'll say that I do love steak fries with ketchup and/or mayo. They need to be crispy, and not oily. I used to have fries several times weekly in the 00's. Nowadays I don't eat much that goes with fries (fried clams were my favorite main with fries, but burgers were good, too). I still like them, though. Having relatives in Canada now, I want to try poutine. But I'll need to make me a batch. I taught myself to do funeral potatoes, which are mostly in Mormon or Utah circles.

And I always have Deep River kettle chips whenever I pick up sushi at the supermarket, which is at least weekly (usually with tiramisu cake or lemon curd cheesecake to finish it off).

If I could figure out how to do a good roti wrap, I would augment that with shoestring fries. With ketchup until I figure out how to do a Dutch-Malay peanut sauce (pindasaus).

What are funeral potatoes?

Raw potatoes which are served during funerals. Didn't you know?

I've never heard of funeral potatoes being served raw. The only ones I'm familiar with are prepared in a casserole.

Jojos. These are a local thing, potato wedges coated in spices and some flour and fried. They are perfect.

In Costa Rica I was introduced to plantain chips, and they are better than potatoes any day.

I can't stand bananas but am intrigued by plantains for some reason. Never had them.

My wife buys 4 bags of them every time she goes to Trader Joe's.  I've started making her buy me a bag of the olive oil potato chips.  But I have no restraint.  I can never make it last more than two sittings.

When you mentioned Jojos I thought you were talking about Trader Joe's cookies.  Those are also addictive.

Do you have Trader Joe stores near you?

2 to 3 hour round trip, depending on when one goes. Never go there.

Plantains are a starch that needs to be cooked before eating. They are very mildly sweet, less so than yams. They have a very, very faint banana taste. If you buy any, don't cook them until they are ripe - and that means their skin is turning brown/black.

Plantains are really good.  They also have dried plantain chips, but I prefer the fried ones.

For potato chips/crisps its these bad boys:

[Image: snapshotimagehandler_875672685.jpeg?h=540&w=540]

THEY ARE SOOOOOO GOOD

For fries/chips [as we call them, although a chip here is a bit fatter than a french fry]:
To be honest any - home made are the best for my money. I love sweet potato fries/chips as well. And while it's not a chip or even made of potato, Parsnips are amazing and taste like "sweet" chips, if that makes sense haha.
And I know what I have to do now. I gotta keep breathing. Because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring?

Nope. What's on the shelf will do fine for me. I once opened a 20 gal. can of "potato chips". After years of bouncing around they were mostly powder. We ate them anyway.
