Billy Goat Potato Chips


A great chip — superb aroma, flavor, crunch and mouthfeel.

What more can you ask from a chip?

Resident auteur Cary Sternick discovered these chips on his recent trip to St. Louis.

Johnny-on-the-spot that he is, he whipped out his trusty Flip SlideHD camera and made a video right there in the store.

Have you no shame, Cary?

You don't?

Good — then you're just the person we want sending stuff here.

But I digress.

Cary was kind enough to send me two bags of Billy Goat chips — one each of the regular and limited-edition (two weeks) Kicker, both just arrived and consumed.

Long story short: "Billy Goat Chips were first given out with meals at the Billy Goat Restaurant and Bar, where they were more popular than anything else on the menu."

Co-owners Brian Roth and Rob Lyons closed the restaurant in December 2008 to concentrate on making and marketing their chips.

The rest is history.

Rave review at taquitos.net.

Currently they're available in the greater St. Louis area but who knows?

Call them and mention you found about them here and maybe they'll sell you some.
