Ordinarily, my wife wouldn’t walk across a small room for a potato chip, just doesn’t care about them one way or another. Me, on the other hand, I was pretty used to consuming two big bags of them (Wavy or Ruffles) a week, until recently. I’ve slacked off. I especially like them to dip into cottage cheese. Or crumbled on a peanut butter sandwich. No matter.
But Mrs. BDB was at the grocery store the other day, and picked up a couple of bags of chips for me, as a treat, they were a BOGO that she couldn’t pass up. The brand is Oregon’s own (formerly) Kettle, and they were the baked ones with sea salt.
“Once you eat one….” could be her new motto. She pronounces these the best chips she has ever had, outside of a restaurant. I have to admit they are pretty damned good. (We do have a fondness for an order of “Half and Half” (cottage fries and onion straws) at the Palm, thus the restaurant reference).
My reference to the above about a ‘formerly’ Oregon brand, five years ago Kettle was sold to a British investment company, and last year, they sold it to Diamond Foods, the California nut people. (They also make Pop Secret microwave popcorn, it seems).
So, if you’re looking for a tasty chip with Mrs. BDB’s endorsement, check out the baked line at Kettle.
