When we go visit my parents, we have a habit of checking their snack cupboard for a bag of chips. Our eager anticipation of checking "the chip" cupboard steams from the fact that I don't buy chips. They're unhealthy and I'd eat them all. Two significant problems. So, I was surprised when my husband bought a couple bags of chips for our recent outing.
I ripped open the chips right away, feeling deprived and knowing that I would probably regret eating them. Chips are good, but usually in that "ugg I can't believe I ate those" kind of way. But these chips were different. On first contact I noticed that they were thick and rustic. When you put them in your mouth they're crunchy and have a well balanced flavour. Of the two flavours I've tried, Onion and Yogurt and Salt and Vinegar, I can say that they tasted natural and not overbearing. Generally, my favorite chip flavour is salt and vinegar but most salt and vinegar chips start to burn your mouth after a while. These don't, which is a nice change. These chips are in fact so amazingly delicious (says the pregnant lady = me) they put all other chips I've tried to shame. And, instead of eating them all at once I feel like the need to ration myself so they don't disappear too quickly. These, my friends, are real chips and they're called Hard Bites.
FYI Hard Bites are a Canadian kettle cooked potato chip made with British Columbian potatoes, cooked in non-hydrogenated canola and sunflower oils and seasoned with natural flavours. More facts here. If you come across Hard Bites give them a try and tell me what you think! Is this the raving of a chip-deprived pregnant lady or am I onto something here. My husband thinks there pretty darn good too so I'm banking that it's not just me.
Oh yes, this chip post is solely my own opinion and not influence by anyone or anything other than my thorough enjoyment of Hard Bite chips. Of course, boxes of Hard Chips donated to yours truly would never be a bad thing. And finally, I'd like to thank Christina, who made the bag of chips sitting beside me as I type.
