Relatively Obscure: I think the potato growers seem like they'd be willing to sit down and hash this dispute out, but that the grocers won't be satisfied until an American fries.Or maybe I'm just baked.

Tasted far batter than the mass-produced garbage coming from Lay's.One day, their potato supplier pulled a dick move and said that they were going to provide exclusively with a nationwide buyer (guess which one).
