It’s summer time, which means BBQ’s and time to hang out with friends. With so many get togethers, there is a need for snacks. There are two basic categories of snacks -healthy and not healthy. Of the not healthy category, there is salty and sweet. Personally I like salty, be it potato chips, pretzels, nuts, etc.
Frito Lay has a whole plethora of new flavors and even textures to try out.
First up lets take a look at Ruffles Ultimate Kickin Jalapeno Ranch potato chips. These chips are from the new line of deeper thicker chips meant to stand up to the thickest of dips and not crumble under the pressure. Does it actually work? We will get tinto that in a bit. The flavor of these is unique and interesting, in a very good way. The ranch is a bit muted and not over powering, and the jalapeno is more of a side note, where the spice is less of a main player in your mouth, and you get more of that fresh jalapeno flavor. The chips are perfect for dipping. Not only are they built to hold up to big dips, but the flavoring is also meant to be a great side note to a dip. These work quite well with a nice french onion dip or even a dill spinach dip. I would not suggest a ranch dip, because that might be a bit too much ranch for one sitting. But hey, if ranch is your thing, go for it.
Up next we have some new corn chips from Tostitos. First up we have Scoops, these tortilla chips are bowl shaped and can fit quite the large amount of salsa. Perfect for the big dippers out there. Between these and the Ultimate Ruffles your dip will be the life of the party. (Maybe even more so then the guy with a lampshade on his head. Maybe, I said.)
Another new Tostito’s product are the Tostitos Restaurant Style with a hint of pepperjack Tortilla chips. These are the best chips to make nachos with. Imagine a pile of cheddar cheese ozzey and melting all over your tortilla chips on a plate as big as your head. In one corner a scoop of sour cream, the other a scoop of salsa and finally a sprinkling of jalapeno peppers for kick. Now imagine the chips bring a flavor to the party as well. A spicy cheesy flavor that makes for a snack which will be difficult to share.
And last but not least is a house favorite. Sun Chips. Sun Chips are a wonderful multigrain chip which are light and crunchy without being fried and greasy. Their newest variety is Garden Salsa. This new flavor is wonderful. These chips have a natural sweetness which comes from using whole grains and many of them. This sweetness is the prefect backdrop for a wonderful vegetable salsa flavor. If you are a fan of Sun Chips, I definitely suggest giving these a taste. They may very well be your new favorite flavor. If you haven’t tried Sun Chips then I definitely suggest doing so as soon as possible!
