Kettle Brand Potato Chips - Jalapeno - Review

Kettle Brand Potato Chips JalapenoKettle Brand Potato Chips introduced this new Jalapeno variety earlier this month, timed with Cinco de Mayo.

Here's what Kettle has to say about this new flavor...

"Kettle Brand Jalapeno Potato Chips strike the perfect balance between fresh, well-rounded flavor and the simple heat of green, spicy jalapeno peppers. A fiery, festive flavor with a Kettle Brand twist, these all natural Jalapeno potato chips are easy to eat with a satisfying heat that sneaks up on you. Paired with an ice cold cerveza, these chips are a delicious fiesta in a bag."

The company sent me a sample bag for review.

Taste

Well, these chips are not exactly hot. And, they're not exactly spicy. They do have a low degree of heat, but it's so low that it only creates a tingle in my mouth. I do eat a lot of spicy foods, so maybe for others these chips could be construed as hot.

But they don't have any jalapeno flavor to them.


They still have that same crunchy, crispy, thick potato chip goodness that you come to expect from kettle cooked potato chips, and they have that same signature flavor that the Kettle Brand puts into them.

It has the split second sweetness off the surface that the Kettle Brand always seems to give you, and it gives off that light potato flavor, and light saltiness.

Overall, what I'm getting from these chips is the same flavor of regular Kettle Brand Potato Chips, but with a faint spicy heat.

These Jalapeno variety chips are selling in grocery stores all over the USA as of this writing.

If you can't find them locally, buy them online from Kettle's website...

I agree with your review on these chips. I was pretty disappointed by the flavor, although Kettle chips are great so I almost ate the whole bag in one sitting anyway. Hopefully they'll come out with a solid spicy chip in the near future.

I love these chips. I eat a lot of spicy food and I found these to have a rather good kick to them. Excellent flavor, they get better the more you eat them. Which I'd advise eating 'junk food' in moderation of course, but they are delicious!

Gross! Those chips are not spicy or have a kick or anything. The ones by Lays do. I can eat a whole bag they're soo good! In fact I have some! :D
