The first package we opened was the Sea Salt and Vinegar Sweet Potato Chips. I have had Sweet Potato Chips before, and I liked them. I was a bit leery of the Salt and Vinegar flavor because I am not, in general a fan of either very salty or of sour flavors. I was not reassured by the aroma when I opened the bag. All I smelled was the vinegar.
I have to report honestly that neither myself nor my husband cared much for these as just a snacking chip. He thinks the vinegar and sweet potato is just not a good combination to him. Anyone fond of Sea Salt and Vinegar flavored food would probably have a totally different reaction. We did think they might go well with something like a sweetish chicken salad on them, or perhaps a chopped ham spread or salad.
I have a Sweet Potato- Chile Soup recipe that we love, and I think they might provide a nice crunchy accent topping if crumbled over the top of that. What I do think I would just love would be Sea Salt and Cinnamon Sugar! :) Another flavor I think might be good to me would be based on a recipe I found online, and that my sister-in-law made for our combined birthday dinner [our birthdays are 12 days apart, so we have one birthday dinner for both of us]. IT was Roasted Sweet Potato and Apple Casserole. The seasonings in the recipe are salt, rosemary, cinnamon, chili powder. My sister-in-law cannot handle hot, so she omitted the chili powder. I think the combination with the chili powder on sweet potato chips would be awesome!
Then we opened the Lime chips. Unqualified hit! I think it tastes like a horizontal margarita, without the risk of becoming horizontal yourself! My husband took one bite and said "I LIKE these!" On their own, I consider them a tasty snacking chip. At the same time, I want to try them with guacamole, con queso, and crumbled over a taco salad.
I'm saving the Chocolate for later. One Warning, I will be trying them with cream cheese, nutella & peanut butter on them, as well as alone.
The Salt and Vinegar Sweet Potato I will pass on to my step-nephew. He's of that age where he will surely know another teenage boy who will enjoy if he doesn't want them himself! I am certain someone in his crowd will just love them!
