The nice lady at Food Should Taste Good told me she had a package of the Chocolate flavor for me to try. I have been anxiously awaiting its arrival. This enormous box arrived containing not only the Chocolate, but Olive, Multigrain, Lime, and Sea Salt and Vinegar Sweet Potato Chips Kettle Cooked.  These were all sent free of charge for me to review.

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!
