I love kettle chips, ripple cut kettle chips are even better which seems to pack more of that kettle flavor than regular cut chips.
So when in the chip aisle yesterday and looking for something a little different than your ordinary kettle chip, sea salt flavored or cheese variety, I happened upon a Chicken Tikka Masala flavored chip.
"Really?" I thought to myself, "A chip flavored like an iconic Indian dish?"
I had to try these.
Private Selection® if you didn't already know, is Kroger's "upscale" store brand, offering unique products and unexpected flavors, an appeal to the gourmet palate. Well they certainly hit the unexpected flavor category with Chicken Tikka Masala flavored chips!
Not knowing what to expect with that first chip bite, I was pleasantly surprised. First you get that strong crunch you're looking for in a kettle chip, but then you get hit with the tomato and fragrant spices of the classic curry dish, it's not subtle, in a good way. No dip is necessary with these chips, and if you feel the need, just a straight sour cream does the trick as these chips pack SO much flavor.
Costing me $2.99 for an 8 ounce bag, I'm giving Private Selection Tikka Masala Ripple-Cut Kettle Chips 4 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. It truly is a unique chip, packs a boat load of Tikka Masala flavor and is worthy of a repeat buy. Reasonably priced, if you're looking for something different in a chip, you've GOT to try these.
