Howdy everyone! It’s been quite a while since I’ve written here and it’s about time that I get back to posting.
Today I want to review my new favorite obsession: SEA SALT AND VINEGAR POTATO CHIPS!
Cape Cod Brand ($4)
These are an absolute delight to crunch and munch on. Extra crunchy with a real nice vinegar tang. It’s an absolute delight to lick your fingers after a lip smacking session with these chips. Plus there are very few ingredients on the ingredients list, which usually means it’s more natural.
Lay’s Brand Kettle Cooked ($3.50)
Please note that these are their kettle cooked variety, NOT their regular variety. I prefer the kettle cooked chips because of a more robust and crunchy chip. These chips are great as well, similar to the cape cod brand, but with the inclusion of some buttermilk. The taste overall is similar to cape cod, but somehow the cape cod brand’s taste seems to be a tad more crisp, with a cleaner aftertaste.
Overall: If you are trying to impress either yourself or some company (who enjoy sea salt & vinegar chips) I would definitely spring for the Cape Cod brand of chips, but the Lay’s rendition is more than acceptable for casual snacking. But in my opinion it is totally worth it to spring for the Cape Cod version for just 50 cents more.
BONUS REVIEW: Given my current obsession in conjunction with my childhood adoration of pringles, I had to try the Pringles version of sea salt n vinegar, and I must say that they taste pretty darn good. Now the texture of the crisps is exactly what you would expect from a pringle, so it can’t be compared to kettle chips, but the flavoring is quite good. Also, it doesn’t have buttermilk in its ingredients either, which I believe lends to a cleaner aftertaste.
SNACK ON AMERICA!
