Review: Miss Vickie’s Applewood Smoked BBQ potato chips

While I’ll concede that most people would be able to tell the difference between something smoked with wood and something smoked over a pile of burning tires, I’m not entirely convinced that the difference between, say, potato chips seasoned with mesquite smoke and those flavoured with another wood smoke is going to be noticeable enough […]

Review: Hardbite Schezwan Peppercorn potato chips

I did a double-take when I walked by the potato chip selection at Calgary’s Sunnyside Market. Hardbite’s folksy packaging has clearly had a major update, and this was my first time seeing it.

Review: Covered Bridge Homestyle Ketchup Potato Chips

  I’ve tried and reviewed other Covered Bridge chips (namely their Cinnamon and Brown Sugar chips, as well as their Smokin’ Sweet BBQ flavour), so I’ve already noted their hideous packaging and other quirky features.

Review: Miss Vickie’s Balsamic Vinegar and Sweet Onion potato chips

I came late in life to balsamic vinegar, but I’ve grown to adore it. I’m also a long-time fan of salt and vinegar chips, something we used to get on Hot Dog Day at my Winnipeg elementary school, along with honey-glazed donuts and steamed hot dogs smeared with ketchup and mustard. (Is such a thing […]

Review: Maui Style Maui Onion potato chips

The Look: Palm trees, a big wave and a surfing Maui onion are printed on the foil bag. Inside, the chips themselves are all curly and thick. They’re what I’d call a golden yellow colour, not much different from the regular salted potato chips I’m used to. They look more gnarled than standard potato chips […]
