Every TV Show Uses the Same Brand of Fake Potato Chips
When a TV show needs a bag of potato chips, they usually try to avoid using an actual brand . . . probably because they’d have to work out a product placement deal.
So a prop company makes an actual bag of potato chips, with the FAKE brand name “Let’s.” And apparently, producers from just about EVERY show are using them, even though they’re very expensive.
A big bag costs $40, and a small bag costs $20 . . . but that’s probably nothing compared to what they might have to deal with to use a real brand like Lay’s.
“Community” showcased Let’s chips the most, to the point where it became a running gag.
But you may have also seen them on: “Orange is the New Black”, “The Middle”, “New Girl”, “Arrested Development”, “2 Broke Girls”, “My Name Is Earl”, “Ugly Betty”, “The New Adventures of Old Christine”, “Sons of Anarchy”, “Cougar Town”, and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”. And the list goes on and on.
By the way, their “Morley Cigarettes” were used by the Cigarette Smoking Man on “The X-Files”, as well as “Breaking Bad”, “24”, “American Horror Story”, “ER”, and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, just to name a few.
