I’m someone that prefers kettle chips over regular potato chips. I like how kettle chips are typically derived from thicker potato cuts, have slightly fewer calories and tend to be crunchier. What I don’t like about kettle chips however is the prices that they typically sell at, which can be anywhere from fifty to one dollar and fifty cents more than regular potato chips, depending on the flavor of the chips and the store. At ALDI Food Market stores, there too kettle chips sell for a slightly higher price than traditional potato chips, but the price for a bag of kettle chips there as compared to at other grocery stores is a steal. For one
dollar and seventy-nine cents, I can pick up an eight point five ounce bag. I find this to be a fairly good value in light of the price and quality of the chips as compared to what the name brand jalapeno kettle chips cost at other supermarkets.
Clancy’s All Natural Jalapeno Kettle Chips make for a pleasant snack or nice side when having lunch. The bag itself gives off a pretty decently strong aroma of jalapenos upon opening it up and the jalapeno flavor of the kettle chips themselves is on the mild side. This is where one of the few issues I have with these chips surface: some seem to have more jalapeno flavor than others, so some of the kettle chips are a bit blander than others while others have a stronger taste. I would have preferred if the jalapeno flavor was more evenly distributed across the bag of chips. They are a little on the hot side at times, but it’s still pretty easy to snack on these chips without having a drink to go along with them, so they definitely aren’t anywhere near being fiery hot.
The kettle chips themselves come in a bunch of different sizes and shapes. Some of the chips are a bit big while others are on the small side. What I kind of don’t like is how some seem contorted into weird ...
