New York Deli Chips … my Purple Passion

New York Deli Potato Chip still exist. Sadly I do not live in the Wise distribution area, so I will only speculate that they are good as I remembered back in the 1980’s. Even if they are not, they still have a lot going for them, the top thing being that purple bag. Back when these started showing up in the delis in my hometown, these purple bags would ALWAYS catch my eye.

Combine that with one of the catchiest jingles on TV and you have the makings of a winning product.

To get your own New York Deli Chips you can check your local store or head over to the Wise Online Store.

  1. Funny enough, I was going through my commercials to prepare my next Retroist article, and this was in one of the commercial blocks!! I haven’t had nor seen these in years, but I have had them before, and yes, the bag really does draw you in, if the commercial doesn’t work for you. :-)

    I would bet that somebody put that Lotus in the ad just so he had an excuse to rent (and drive) one on the customer’s dime.
