J.P.'s Mesquite Bar-B-Q Potato Chips

Taste test: These are kettle-style potato chips with a very subtle barbecue taste.

They're OK, but there are many better kettle-style chips out there — these are just average in consistency and crunch. The barbecue taste is also average — slightly sweet, kind of weak, no heat, no aftertaste, nothing special.

Smell test: Just a very slight sweet barbecue aroma.

From the package: “Extra crunchy” ... “Kettle-cooked” ... “J.P. Duchesneau, found of the Tri-Sum Potato Chip Company, knew the secret of making a delicious, hand-cooked potato chip full of real potato flavor and extra-crunch goodness! Today, more than 90 years later, J.P.'s family who still operates the long-standing chip company, is making potato chips the same way using Grandpa's original recipe. J.P.'s Hand-Cooked Potato Chips are sliced a little thicker, cooked in kettles, stirred by hand, and lightly salted. The original hand-kettle method, although more costly and time consuming, results in a crisp, ol'fashioned, moth watering chip that is reminiscent of yesteryear. Fond memories never die — neither do the family recipes. It is for this reason that we have brought back J.P.'s Hand-Cooked Potato Chips. Ol'fashioned goodness, again — the way it used to be.”
