I don't recall them coming in a can. BUT it would keep them from being crushed before you got them home, wouldn't it?
I don't remember Lay's in a tin either, but we used to get large tins of ones called Charles Chips that came in about a 3 gallon can. I think that they were only sold at beer distributors. There was a deposit on the tin. You could either return it for cash or trade it in for a new can. Those chips were great. Nice and salty and greasy. The only ones that were better were Wise Potato Chips when they were still fried in beef tallow.............
Charle's Chips did home and business delivery. I used to buy from them back in the late 80's.
Hunt's potato chips came in a large can in the summer, head down to the beach with a car of teenagers and full can of chips, come home with the can full of fish, mussels or clams. Cape Cod in the 60's. Family and recipe for Cape Cod Potato Chips today.
Utz came on a can, and may still. Nothing like that here in Freeattle, but Tim's Cascade chips are good.
Utz just bought Snyders of Berlin. They make the best bbq chips in the world. I sure hope that Utz doesn't eff with the recipe. That would be a disaster of epic proportions.............
Utz around Baltimore, that is.
Given the number of whales who appear to exist on such as this, I am surprised that some enterprising junkfood manufacturer has not offered this size. Maybe it's because Lay's is still able to charge $4.29 for 9 OUNCES of something they sliced, fried, packaged, and shipped, the cost of the main ingredient from which it is made for less than $0.10 per pound, maybe less than $0.05 per pound, given their economies of scale.
Hands Down, the best Potato Chips in the world are Kitch’n Cook’d Maui Potato Chips. Grew upin Pennsylvania and remember Wise & Charles brands.

Gibbles potato chips from Chambersburg,PA. Still fried in lard. It's a damn fine chip.
Do they call the little chips Gibblets?
Remember how good McDonald's fries were, back when they were fried in beef shortening?
