Look what happened to show up in the mail for me! This post is a bit long over due- but I had to take my time getting through the snacks and make sure I could give you the quality review you deserve.
After searching blogs far and wide, I noticed that people had something I didn’t. Something fresh, light and crunchy- not to mention the salt (insert drool). I ended up firing the company an email because I could not for the life of me find them on any grocery store shelf- turns out they sell them at the Shoppers Drug Mart (Canadians) just down the street. And no- I have not yet been down there to pick up a new bag- I just finished snacking my way through the sample box that arrived in my mail box not too long ago.
First things first . Cutest packaging. I don’t know if “cute” is the right word they want associated with it. But I was into it. The details that went into the marketing is brilliant- what’s even more brilliant is that they’re making snacking fun again (I thought it was always fun- but for those of you who have lost it- here it is!).
I didn’t really know what to expect when I opened up the package- I was kind of thinking I would be getting an over-processed-can’t-taste-the-potato-or-any-real-food from them. But- I was wrong. Pop chips are awesome- and I finally see why so many people have them on their blogs. There is still that potatoey flavor that is lightly dressed in quite a few classic flavors.
Starting with the ugly– There wasn’t anything ugly about these, they have an amazing marketing team to thank for that.
The bad– I don’t like sour cream and onion flavored anything- sorry, but this was going to be a fail from the time I cracked open the bag- luckily I had a friend standing by who dug in- memories of the baseball field and bbqs came rushing back.
The good- the list could go on and on here. I thought all the flavors were amazing (except said flavor above)- they were lighter then what you would normally find in a chip bag, so you didn’t get those crazy strong flavors, they were (hating to sound cliche) just right. I loved them. I’m not going to lie and say I’m a big potato chip eater- but these were good, and definitely going to be a staple for parties. As for my favorite- the salt and pepper ones were it. I don’t know if you’ve ever had Kettle chips in salt and pepper- but these bad boys were and insanely close second.
Would I buy these? Yes. Would I recommend you go out and buy some to try? Yes. Would these pass the male friend eating them and not knowing they’re healthy? Yes.
So there you have it- a new snack for you to enjoy- health nut approved.
BIG THANKS TO POP CHIPS FOR THE GREAT NEW SNACK!
