Trader Joe's Salted Popped Potato Chips
I had never noticed these on the TJ's shelves until a trip a few days ago, when I saw several different variations on the same theme. I picked this one, "salted," as it appeared to be the most basic, with the idea that I would check out the others if I liked it.
What are they like? Imagine the taste of a Pringles potato chip, but textured to be air-puffed. That's about what you've got here.
Nina and I were eating them with some powerful hummus (Thai Coconut Curry from Roots). I thought it made for a good combination, though this particular hummus is extreme thick and stiff-textured, and the chips were a bit too delicate to scoop through it.
Ingredients: Potato flakes; potato starch; sunflower, safflower, and/or canola oil; rice flour; salt. Vegan friendly, gluten-free. $1.99 for 3.25 oz.
Will I buy it again?
Sure. I don't think it will become a favorite or staple, but they're plenty good to have as something a little different once in a while. And now I have to work my way through the other varieties.
