Taste test: These potato chips broke from the usual (and very successful) Kettle Chips formula by switching to avocado oil (which we've seen in a few chips, but not a lot) and using Himalayan salt (also relatively rare in snacks, but definitely on a rapid rise in recent years). We found them on a shelf alongside a BBQ flavor also cooked in avocado oil.
The chips had a nice golden yellow color, with lots of wiggly and folded-over shapes. I crunched in to find a very nice, fairly solid crunch, plus lots of great potato flavor. I couldn't taste anything resembling avocado, nor did I notice a difference between Himalayan salt and the usual salt, but they were good chips.
Smell test: Good rich potato smell.
From the package: “Here at Kettle Brand we take great pride in the community & world we live in. In Salem, OR we re-introduced native plants to our 2 acre wetland & have watched wildlife return including a family of herons.”
