When you're in the mood for something salty and crunchy, there's nothing better than a bag of chips.

But it begs the question of which snack will both fit your personality and satisfy your cravings. And that's where astrology comes in. Keep reading to hear from professional astrologers about which chips you should eat, based on your zodiac sign.

Aries: Takis

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, so it's no wonder they've got some bold tendencies. That's why Ryan Marquardt, astrologer and founder of Ryan's Astrology, suggests Takis—a brand of flavored rolled tortilla chips—for this fiery and unapologetic sign.

"These chips are giving you the same spicy kick and a tough-around-the-edges appearance that Aries is well known for," he says, adding that Takis stand out proudly as a leader in the chip hierarchy just like their zodiac pairing.

Taurus: Sun Chips

Taurus has an earthy, laid-back vibe that Marquardt says fits perfectly with Sun Chips. But even though these chips are a bit simple, they're sophisticated and delicious enough for the foodie of the zodiac.

"Similar to a Taurus, Sun Chips have a wholesome quality about them," he tells Best Life. "This is a no-frills pairing that's comforting, reliable, and satisfying all at once."

Gemini: Doritos

Los Angeles, California, United States - 09-04-2019: A view of several small bags of Doritos Nacho Cheese chips, on a shelf at a convenient store.

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that if there are Doritos at the party, that's where the people are," says Alexandra Plante, astrologer and spirituality and history expert at Fresh Start Registry. So, as the social butterfly of the zodiac, Gemini pairs naturally with this chip.

You never get tired of Doritos and you'll never be bored with a Gemini. Just keep in mind that the orange cheese dust might be a bit messy, which aligns well with Gemini's sometimes chaotic energy.

Cancer: Funyuns

Sentimental Cancer has a nostalgic side—and so do Funyuns. "They have this beautiful ability to preserve the past, which also makes sense for Funyons since they haven't changed their original recipe ever since they debuted on the market in 1969," says Marquardt.

These water signs, the homebodies of the zodiac, also have an incredibly calming presence—and what goes more hand in hand than comfort food and comforting people?

Leo: Flamin' Hot Cheetos

Fiery Leo is a force to be reckoned with, and sometimes you can only handle their egos and attention-seeking ways in small doses—similar to the spicy kick of Flamin' Hot Cheetos.

"Not only are these crunchy cheesy pops of corn noticeable, they're also a screaming tower of flame right into your tastebuds," Plante tells Best Life. "You won't be able to get a word in edgewise just like any conversation with a Leo."

Virgo: Kettle Brand Sea Salt Potato Chip

Kettle Brand Sea Salt Potato Chips are ideal for practical and perfectionist Virgo. "Efficient, professional, and without reproach, that's a Virgo, and it makes sense that their potato chip would be a classic in the snack food genre," says Plante.

These are also thicker than regular potato chips and won't break when used for dipping. Since Virgos pride themselves on their ability to lend a helping hand without cracking under pressure, there really couldn't be a better pairing.

Libra: Pringles

"Pringles are a trendy chip, and the 'once you pop you can't stop' slogan is a great parallel to Libra's infectious and likable energy," says Marquardt.

But they're also a bit of a metaphor for Libra's diplomatic personality. The chips are perfectly stackable and balanced, which makes them great for a sign that values equilibrium and harmony above anything else.

Scorpio: Trader Joe's Ghost Pepper Chips

Spicy chips are an acquired taste, similar to Scorpio's personality. The Trader Joe's Ghost Pepper Chip is intense but also leaves you wanting more. And once Scorpio invites you into their life, you'll never want to go back.

Plante notes that these chips are not for everyone and that you'll have to work to get them (if you've ever seen the crowds at Trader Joe's, you'll understand)—and these sensitive water signs will definitely make you work for their affection.

Sagittarius: Pita Chip

Sagittarius embraces life's many adventures and loves stepping out of their comfort zone. So, their ideal chip is one that fits with the cuisines of many different cultures.

"Much like Sagittarians who are drawn to international travels and cross-cultural connections, pita chips offer a culinary journey that transcends the familiar style of chip," says Marquardt. They're perfect for all kinds of dips or toppings.

Traditional Capricorn prefers to stick to the classics. And when it comes to chips, is there anything more tried and true than a bag of Lay's? With this classic chip, you know what you'll be getting every single time.

Plante describes this dependable and hardworking sign as the glue that holds everyone together. With a bag of Lay's, you can trust that everyone will be satisfied.

Aquarius: Pretzels

Aquarians live to defy social norms, so while everyone else is choosing a chip, they'll be going with pretzels. But this snack isn't so far out there that others won't be able to relate.

"This perfectly reflects the way that Aquarius asserts their individuality and stands out in the crowd," says Marquardt. "They remind us that in a world of conformity, it's okay to challenge the norm and create space for something different."

Pisces: Deep River Rosemary & Olive Oil Chips

Pisces is the biggest daydreamer of the zodiac. When life gets tough, they want to escape into their imaginations. For this reason, the Deep River rosemary and olive oil chips are an exquisite pairing.

"These chips conjure images of dancing barefoot in a lush garden under a summer moon," says Plante. There's a lot of depth to this chip, and the same can be said for Pisces' complex souls.
