Whether you are sitting on the couch rooting for Toronto Blue Jays playoff odds to improve, or throwing a party, potato chips are a dependable and popular snack staple.

Canadians have a ton of options to choose from, including some brands that are unique to the country. All-dressed chips and ketchup-flavored bites are two of the options that Canadians seem to love. Canada even introduced poutine-flavoured potato chips to the world, because of course it did.

Which Chip Flavour Came Out On Top?

According to search interest scores from the previous year, from April 1, 2023, to April 1, 2024, Ontario residents enjoy Barbeque chips the most. That flavour drew a search interest score of 9, far outstripping the competition.

In second place is a spicy contender: Jalapeno. The pepper-inspired variety came in second on our list with a search interest score of 4.

A couple of combinations tie for third: Salt and vinegar is on level terms with sour cream and onion, each with 3 points.

The remainder of our list consists mostly of pretty standard choices that can be found anywhere: There is a four-way tie for fifth among Classic, Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper, and two cheese options (Cheddar and Nacho). Then comes Flamin’ Hot in ninth place.

But we must mention another Canadian style that has spread, at least somewhat: Dill pickle. That one comes in at No. 10 on our list.

It should come as no surprise that Canada loves its potato chips. According to worldpopulationreview.com data, the nation is No. 12 in the world in potato production, at more than 6 million metric tons per year as of 2021. That’s impressive for a country ranked No. 38 in the world in population.
