Trader Joe's Ketchup Potato Sticks
Taste test: These are basically large, hollow, square-profile fries made from potato flour (as opposed to being cut from an actual potato), with a ketchup seasoning on them.
Shapewise, they're a lot like Skinny Sticks, but all of the flavors of Skinny Sticks that I tried were far better than these. The Skinny Sticks were also crisp, whereas these were a bit stale. The weird part is that underneath the bright red ketchup seasoning, the various fries are actually three different colors (pinkish purple, green and pale yellow). I didn't notice the different colors at first; I just thought that different fries had different levels of ketchup seasoning. But after biting into one and taking a peek inside, it was clear that the inside was purplish. It's strange that they'd use such bright colors, then mostly cover them up. The potato taste was a bit off and sort of chemical-like, and the ketchup taste was OK but not great. Overall, acceptable, but I'd much rather have some good ketchup potato chips.
