I loved them. My dad was a teacher at my high school (Graduated 1991) and after school I rode home with him and we would stop at the store and I would pick a "grab bag" of the Cajun Spice ruffles and a drink. This happened almost every day. You would think Ruffles would have kept them on the shelf just because of me. I really miss them. I can still taste them sometimes if I really think about it.

I loved the taste of these chips, I was so bummed when they stopped making them. Put these under the category of "every thing I like they take away".

Ohhhhhmg I forgot about these. I used to eat them all the time. They were my favorite chips. I wish they would bring them back.

A grab bag of these, with a bottle of New York Seltzer to wash it down, is the ultimate 80s snack.

These were my favorite chips when I was a kid. I'd always make it my bargaining chip for my sister boyfriend to come see her if they didn't want me to snitch! It was just my way of getting a bag of my favorite Cajun Spice chips without having to pay for them myself. Does anyone know why they don't make them anymore?

I'm all for signing a petition to bring these back.

OMG... I'm not alone! I thought I was the only person who FREAKED when they took these off the market! LOL Now, let's get a bandwagon going and march down to Frito-Lay's corporate office!

Cajun Spice Ruffles are the reason that I am overweight today!!! I was a slender boy of 12 years when these chips came out. I developed a nasty 1 family-sized bag per day of these chips in the summer 1988. When I went back to school the next year, I was the fattest kid there. When the chips went off the market, I stopped gaining weight, but to this day I haven't lost any of it. I grew a foot, so I don't look that big, but I am still considered overweight (6'4" 270 pounds). I miss these chips, but I pray to God they never bring them back. I would probably end up killing myself on them.

I had forgotten about the Cajon ruffles. We loved those. Speaking of cajon, anyone remember the cajon popcorn shrimp Long John Silver's served in the 80's?

I LOVED these chips especially with bread and butter pickle slices-- I made them into little sandwiches. Sounds crazy but they were so good. I still make little sandwiches out of plain potato chips, dill pickle slices and mustard. Yum.

I used have these in my lunch almost every day during high school. You could stuff them inside a bland sandwich and get a good meal.

These had such a good flavor and that Ruffles crunch, best chip ever! I remember right about 1990 you just couldnt find them anymore. Wish they would bring them back, I guaronteee I would buy them!

I loved Cajun Spice ruffles!! They came out when I was in the 7th grade and I used to bring a ziploc bag full of them to school with me everyday, and kids used to try to trade food with me, lol!!

I loved loved loved these chips. So mad they don't make them anymore. They were one ofmy favorite kinds of chips as a kid. I don't understand why they took them off the market. They need to bring them back.

Loved these! A friend of mine that was a distributor said Lay's stopped making them because it was too close to the "Mesquite" and the M's were selling better. The mesquite was crap. These by far are the best american made chip ever.

I miss these, too. I think I'll go on their Facebook page and demand that they bring them back.

I still crave these! I would love for them to bring them back or even do a retro version like Doritos does- I will just buy many bags.

Lisa, I would buy as many bags as I could, too... those, New York Seltzer, Penguins Frozen Yogurt, and red M&M's are the ultimate 80s cuisine...

There was a Hostess Cajun Style Chips. They were in a black bag. I would walk to the store every day with my friends and buy them. My all-time favorite chip.
