So, I first discovered the delicious taste and texture of Kettle chips at a friend’s party several years ago. In case you’ve never had them Kettle chips are thin, crunchy, sliced pieces of potatoes with just the right amount of seasoning. As much as I loved the chips that day, I hadn’t really eaten many of them since the party due to their somewhat higher calorie content and because there are so many wonderful low calorie baked chips available at the supermarket nowadays – rice chips, baked flat chips, tortilla chips, etc. Now, I definitely don’t advocate eating chips all the time, but I personally like to pair them with a sandwich for lunch sometimes, especially when I had a ton of fruit for breakfast.
Now, I’m not sure if they are new or not, but I recently discovered Kettle Brand BAKED Potato Chips at my local Whole Foods. The flavor I purchased is called Aged White Cheddar, and I was overjoyed to discover that they are just as delicious and crunchy as their non-baked Kettle counterparts.
Like with regular Kettle chips, the baked versions are made from and look like real sliced potatoes. They are also all natural, have no hydrogenated oils or trans fats (like all foods that I blog about), no preservatives, no GMO ingredients, no gluten, and they boast of being made of “only real food ingredients”. The chips also come in a flavor called "Lightly Salted" as well as "Hickory Honey Barbeque".
In the calorie department, each 28 gram serving (about 20 chips!) of the Aged White Cheddar flavor is 120 calories, 3 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber, and 3 grams of protein.
As I mentioned, I found them at Whole Foods but they are also available at other stores (you can find one near you using their store locator link on the Kettle Chip site).
Question for you – If you like chips, what are you favorite kind/flavors?
PS. I'll be blogging about some awesome sweet potato chips next week!
