Boulder's Spinach & Artichoke Chips

I saw this brand of chips going on sales at the Cold Storage.

The Boulder Canyon's Kettle Cooked Potato Chips cost $3.60 per pack.

I was quite intrigued by the Spinach and Artichoke flavour and so bought it to try. It is not very often that we see chips flavoured solely with vegetables. Spinach I know had a bitter taste that normally existed in vegetables,  but what does an artichoke taste like? I never had that before.

When first popped open the packet, one will get an almost familiar smell. I am sure I smell it somewhere, but wasn't quite sure what it was.

The chips were cut in good size. They are cut just like any kettle-cooked chips should be. For those who never had kettled-cooked chips, they are thicker than Jack and Jills' wafer thin chips.

It has a nice colour - beautiful golden brown and a good crunch too.

Upon the first bite, the strangely familiar taste finally hit a match in my taste database.

The chips smell and taste as though it was flavoured with pepper and a hint of basil.

I don't really taste the spinach though and I also wasn't sure if that is how artichoke should taste like.

In fact, it was quite salty after a few chips more.

Verdict: Can try a packet if you are curious, but it wouldn't be on my buy-list again.
