Trader Joes Potato Chips with South African Seasonings
I first tried these at the end of a three day juice cleanse. Not surprisingly, after three days with no food, these chips tasted delicious. But that’s probably not a fair review. So, I ate them for a full week and actually struggled to form a strong enough opinion for a review. I like the taste of them, no doubt. But I was not craving them in a “eat-the-whole-bag-in-two-days” kind of way, as I usually do. Why? I ultimately deduced that it is a lack of sugar that prevents these chips from being addictive. The taste most resembles barbeque chips, but without any sweetness to offset the spice. One could argue that this is a good thing – a tasty chip that you can pace yourself with. On the other hand, I probably wouldn’t bring these to a party since they are clearly not an easy/automatic crowd pleaser, nor are they odd enough to be a gimmicky conversation piece.
