Is there any snack more compulsively consumable than the humble potato chip? No matter your mood, potato chips are always there to satisfy your cravings in the most delicious way possible. The question is, which one is the absolute best?

This might seem like an impossible question to tackle, but the folks at Ranker were willing to try. They put out a survey of the best chips in the world, and the answers poured in. And now we’ve got the top five favorite chip choices for you — because it’s Friday and we needed to do this…for ourselves, and for the world.

Okay, okay, enough talk. Without further ado, here were the top five favorites.

5. Pringles Sour Cream & Onion

Pringles might not be your first thought for favorite chip (after all, some people will strongly argue that they barely count as chips at all), but their savory sour cream and onion flavor earned them the number five spot.

4. Lay’s Barbecue

Is there a more perfect summer snack than Lay’s barbecue? We can’t think of one. Perfect for your cookout or just chilling in front of Netflix, it’s no surprise this treat earned high marks in the search for the favorite chip.

3. Ruffles Cheddar & Sour Cream

This has always been a personal favorite chip, and it seems the world agrees. America can’t get enough of this tangy, ruffled chip. The fun texture just adds to its overwhelming charm.

2. Cool Ranch Doritos

Coming in at a respectable second place, Cool Ranch Doritos break the mold by not being a potato chip. Instead, these wildly popular tortilla chips explore exciting and unexpected flavor combinations — and people are eating them up (ha…we’ll see ourselves out).

And people’s #1 favorite chip is…

1. Cheetos

Um, are Cheetos even a chip? Don’t get us wrong, they are cheesy, crunchy, and totally delicious. We’re just not sure they quite qualify as a chip in the conventional sense. Still, it’s what the people have chosen.

Who are we to argue with such a tasty snacking option? Pass the bag.
