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.
