Pret Hand Cooked Salt & Vinegar Crisps

Buy potato chips on Amazon

Taste test: These are thick, dark, very crunchy kettle-style chips.

They remind me a bit of Cape Cod's dark russett potato chips, with some really nice potato flavor. Unfortunately, these are only slightly vinegary — so slightly that if it didn't say "vinegar" on the bag, I might not have noticed the taste at all. And even now, I'm not sure whether there's really any vinegar taste, or if I'm just pretending to notice it because it says so on the bag.

Smell test: Not all that vinegary.

From the package: “A New Yorker called George Crum invented the crisp in 1853. 'Crum's Crisps' ... or so legend has it. We find 'bold' potatoes made especially for good crisps. They are bigger than average on account of being grown for longer and with plenty of space between them. We slice our potatoes particularly thick to ensure maximum crispness. We then hand cook our crisps, changing the oil frequently. Dirty or burnt oil would of course taint the taste of the crisps and ruin the seasoning and natural flavors we use.”
