newscom.au put in the hard yards and conducted a comprehensive survey of more than 50 Aussies to secure the results of the Great Chip Survey of 2019.

A total of 56 brands and flavours of chips (currently available at all major retailers) were put to the test including Twisties, Cheezels, Smiths and Red Rock Deli.

Participants were encouraged to number their top 10 favourite chips in order of most to least favourite.

And the winners were….

#10 RED ROCK DELI — HONEY SOY CHICKEN

#9 BURGER RINGS

#8 KETTLE CHILLI CHIPS

#7 THINS LIGHT & TANGY

#6 RED ROCK DELI — SALT & BALSAMIC VINEGAR

#5 CHEEZELS

#4 PRINGLES — ORIGINAL

#3 SMITH’S SALT & VINEGAR

#2 TWISTIES — CHEESE

and drum roll please for the favourite of all time.

#1 SMITH’S — ORIGINAL

I actually agree with the results, although there are no Samboy’s in there which is a surprise. Crinkle cut are my fave! None of these thins, that’s not cool at all.

What are your favourite chips? Did they make the top 10?

  • Some of my favourites made it to the list and others are absent.
    Seems like a small survey sample.

  • My favourite chips are Samboy Tomato Sauce, Smiths original, Smiths cheese and onion and my all time favourite is Cheezels. I hardly buy them though because I eat the whole bag in a day. Just can’t put them down, and then I feel guilty for eating them all

  • Not a very big survey pool. But I agree with red rock deli.


    • It does seem to be a small survey group.

  • I like any Salt and Vinegar chips and also Burger Rings, then again I’m not that fussy, they are so easy to eat.

  • The sample or survey pool was a bit small with only 50. Here’s an opportunity on this site to understand a more diverse audience. I LOVE potato chips. They’re my vice, my go-to, my naughty purchase… I can eat a whole bag in one go. This is why I love the reduced size, just a little!! I love Chicken Crinkle Cut Chips – SMITH’s. Yum Yum Yum. But, I also love Smith’s Cheese & Onion, Smith’s Original, Thins Original, Thins Sour Cream & Onion, Red Rock Honey Soy Chicken… and the list goes on. I do feel like I’m a bit of a connoisseur as they’re my jam!!

  • Burger rings ????????. The others are yumm. Nothing beats the original potato chip, a good all rounder.

  • Mine differ all the time. At the moment I’m loving Kettle original, just salt. Other times I love Cheese Twisties. Sometimes plain crisps, thin ones. I get sick of the one type then crave another haha

  • Interesting the most unhealthy, saltiest and moorish one’s are on the top.

  • Surprised at honey soy dont like it

  • Well done Smiths. I have to say, I am more of a Red Rock Deli or Kettles fan.

  • I’d have the Smith’s Salt & Vinegar chips at Number 1 – Or at least I would have when I used to eat them.
