Do you like chips? I sure do. One kind of chip I really enjoy is the Sweet Potato Chip, because they are so very delicious. I confess that when I see a bag or bowl of Terra Chips at a party, I hover around it and pick out all of the Sweet Potato Chips for myself. Because that is how I roll. I believe that is was at the recent Summer Fancy Food Show where I picked up a sample bag of One Potato Two Potato brand Sweet Potato Chips, and subsequently fell in love with this tasty and all natural snack.
In the above photo you can see these awesome Sweet Potato Chips, all crispy and delightful to the tongue, as they accompany a yummy Cheeseburger made by me for a meal I ate at home last Friday. I love these Chips!

When it comes to salty snacks, I’m more of a chip fan than a cracker lover. The only downside of chips is that sometimes they are too fragile to bear the weight of the heartier dips, such as hummus or even a thick sour cream dip. And chips that break off in the dip bowl can be a drag.
If you you have tasted Lentil Chips before, then you know they are pretty delicious, and also very light and crispy while maintaining the desired dip-sturdiness. I was recently introduced to Mediterranean Snacks brand Baked Lentil Chips, in the Fiery Tomato flavor variety, and became a big fan. I enjoyed these chips the other night as side accompaniment to some leftover Indian food and not only did the spicy tomato and lentil flavors compliment the cuisine, but the chips were strong enough to use to scoop up little bites of food, which was kind of fun.
Beside tasting super yummy, Mediterranean Snacks Baked Lentil Chips are a healthier snack alternative, being 70% lower in fat than potato chips, high in fiber and gluten free. I like the way the Fiery Tomato ignites a sweet and tangy fire in your mouth, but they also come in four other delicious-sounding flavors including Cucumber Dill, Cracked Pepper, Parmesan Garlic and Rosemary. So, you know, choose your weapon.

Debuting on store shelves just a few days ago, Kettle Brand Chips has re-launched four of their retired flavors for a limited time to celebrate the company’s 30 years of making kettle-cooked potato chips. Christened as the Limited Batch Birthday Collection, the flavors include Red Chili, Jalapeno Jack, Salsa with Mesquite and Cheddar Beer – a bag of which I just polished off last night. If you like spicy foods and flavored chips, this collection of crispy, crunchy snacks is going to be your thing.
Kettle was kind enough to ship me a bag of each of the four returning flavors and I can report that the Cheddar Beer variety (first introduced as a fan pick in 2005 ) – while light on the promised malty beer flavor – is a Cheese lover’s delight. These sturdy chips explode with the taste tangy sharp cheddar cheese and pair perfectly paired with a juicy Burger. Kettle’s Red Chili chips first appeared in 1982, offering the flavor of Sriracha sauce combined with a vinegar tang and Cayenne pepper for extra heat. Jalapeño Jack took the stage in 1989 and brings a Jack cheese base mixed with the spice of red and green peppers and a strong jalapeño flavor. Salsa with Mesquite appeared in 1999 and features tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, garlic and lime. These chips are the perfect addition to any summer picnic, BBQ or buffet, though I have no problem eating them right out of the bag accompanied by a frosty beer or margarita!
The Limited Batch Birthday Collection launched in August 2012 and will be available for about a year before they disappear from shelves next summer. The four flavors come in 5-ounce bags retailing for $2.79 and are available at Whole Foods and other markets as well as online at BuyKettleChips.Com.
