I stopped eating Kettle Chips.

Because I'd go through the whole damn bag and then want another one.

I like bacon with a little syrup drizzled on it. Takes about 5 min to make.

I love Kettle Chips.  Last time I went wine tasting they were pairing Kettle Chips with wines at the Sokol-Blosser winery.  That Spicy Thai flavor is delicious, with or without wine (although with is particularly nice).

Husband "weaponizes" slices of thick cut bacon with dark maple syrup. Fantastic stuff when he does it.

Now take those new chips and some fine Villars melted milk chocolate and dip the chips halfway , set to cool on parchment paper, make lots of new freinds.

THIS.  You don't buy a bag of Kettle brand chips to eat a handfull or have some with a hamburger sandwich. The only reason the bag ever meets a chip clip is you want to hide the fact you already ate through the bag before the groceries got put up.

Blarnch. Bacon is best plain, or at most with cracked black pepper. Maple? No thanks.

Wow!  There must be some kind of record going here.  No one has popped in and said how fattening and disgusting potato chips are and they only have negative 0 per cent body fat and poop more than they eat.
Nobody?
Maybe they finally all died of starvation.

This.

I try to not eat junk food.

Kettle Chips are pretty much some of the best potato chips out there.  Seriously, way better than Ruffles/Lays/Pringles crap.  Maple Bacon flavor?  I can just imagine it.  I'm thinking that's probably really nice

I'd go through the whole bag in one sitting.  For my waistline and overall health, I'll pass.

I will say though, congrats to them for the idea.

Eat all of this stuff while you can, enjoy it. I've grown too old and too fat. Can no longer eat like I'm a 12 year old left alone for the weekend with $100.00 to spend on whatever I please. Dammit to hell. Dammit all to hell.

I'm like that with the baked ones. They're almost as good as the regular ones. I LOVE bacon and maple and maple bacon but I hate anything bacon flavoured. I'm going to pass on this new flavour.

The proof is in the tasting. The last bacon-flavored chip I had was just a regular bag of chips slathered in MSG. Took one bite and my mouth felt like it was coated in turtle-wax for the next hour.

At some point Kettle brand changed their frying medium to motor oil. Don't really buy it anymore.

I'm just remembering some chips that came out a few years ago, can't remember if they were Kettle brand or just kettle-cooked.  They were beer flavored.  They were farking delicious.  What happened to those?

They were Kettle brand, and they were discontinued (the bastards). They have a krinkle cut flavor of cheddar and sour cream that tastes somewhat similar, and will do as a poor-mans's replacement.
