Hey I loved these chips too they kinda reminded me of eating munchos. My mom bought them once or twice but not very much. Now that i'm grown up i wish i could buy them to eat now. Does anybody know if they still make them or not? They always take to good stuff off. Does anybody know where you can buy citra Pop it was made by coca cola. i use to drink that a few years ago and they took it off the market too. what a shame. All the good stuff don't last. Plese e-mai me and let me know where ican purchase these product.

Another product I begged my dad to buy because I liked the commercial. I think he finally gave in once, and I wound up not liking the thick cut of the chip. Had to finally finish them, though, learned my lesson.

Patrick from MA - March 13, 2008 - Report this comment
Ok, count me as the lonely one but I HATED them. They were not thick as much as they were bubbly. I thought they always tasted stale. I still remember the lame-ass ad, with the goofball dancing in the stairwell with his acid-wash jeans, sport-coat and his bag of O'Boisies. It was one of the first times I realized that commercials can be stupid. I was like, "it's a bag of chips, what the hell is he dancing for?!?" For what it is worth though, they still make Tater Skins, you can get them in most any Midwestern US grocery store.

And now the craving just won't go away so if any one has a hook up at keebler, could you tell them to bring those chips back. Hey we should all leave a message on the keebler website, if they have one. Or call their comment/customer satisfaction line.

I went to a store called Aldi in NJ before the holidays and they had a knock off brand of Oboisies called Tader-Skins. They taste very much like I remember the Keebler ones tasted. Similar sized bag too. Find an Aldi and try them let me know if I'm remembering them correctly.

Poore Brothers bought up the factory in Indiana used to make O'Boises and Tato Skins. Keebler could probably bring them back since Poore Bros. does not like to/want to make them, but they seemed to leave the salty snack market. Towards the end I bought them direct from Bluffton Foods in Indiana. I miss them a lot.
ScottB - April 12, 2009 - Report this comment
Sour Cream and Onion O'Boises were the best chips ever made, but you can't get them anymore. The closest thing I've found are the Pringles Select in the bag. They have that same bubbly crunch. Try the parmesan garlic.

They are BACK!! Off Idahostatesman.com Inventure (Poore Brothers) has had many requests from people to bring O'Boisies back. The secret to their crunchy popularity is the tiny bubbles that give the chip its consistency. Original flavors were plain, BBQ and sour cream and onion. Now you can try salt and pepper, cheddar jalapeno, cheddar sour cream and original.

I just purchased some a few days ago! Of all places in the world, I found them at a Roses Discount Store in Blue Ridge, GA. They are simply the best chips ever. Haven't had them since I was a child. I got regular and salt and pepper. Almost finished both bags already. The bags say: "Back by popular demand!" Btw, for the people asking about Tato Skins- I've had TGIF tater skins and as far as I can tell they taste just like the old Tato Skins. They're great, too. They're in our vending machine at work.

I hope they'll be coming to supermarkets in Michigan. I remember eating the sour cream and onion O'Boisies at parties when I was a kid. I've missed that yummy crunchy bubbly texture so much, until I discovered Pringles Select, which are great in their own right, and similar, but not quite the same. The sour cream and onion O'Boisies were my favorite.

I found them in my school vending machine and they are not at all the delicious chips i remember. Im pretty sure the old ones were fried, which is why they were full of air bubbles and melted in your mouth. I figure that they evaluated the trans fat content and replaced it with some baked piece of crap. Im so disappointed.

I have been in the packaging industry for many years and in the late 90's, O'Boises was one of my top accounts. They got in financial trouble, got downsized, purchased by somebody and their products were issued in a limited manner. Last I had seen them was in a vending machine under the TGI Friday label. Potato snack was a misnomer. The product was actually an extruded product, not made from potatoes.
