NEWS: Kettle Brand Likey the Spicy With Their Jalapeno Potato Chips

Written by | April 21, 2009

Hot off the heels of their Death Valley Chipotle Potato Chips, Kettle Brand recently introduced their Jalapeno flavored chips, which they describe as, “Striking a perfect balance between fresh, well-rounded flavor and the simple spicy bite of green jalapeno peppers.”

Being a fan of Kettle Brand Potato Chips and jalapenos (I once drank the juice from a jar of pickled jalapenos for two dollars), I’m eager to give these a try. Look for it in grocery and hippie natural food stores nationwide. They will be available in 2 oz., 5 oz., and 9 oz. bags.

A one-ounce serving contains 150 calories, 9 grams of fat, 1 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 1 gram polyunsaturated fat, 7 grams of monounsaturated fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 200 milligrams of sodium, 400 milligrams of potassium, 15 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of dietary fiber, 1 gram of sugar and 2 grams of protein.

(NOTE: Off Her Cork reviewed these earlier this month.)

    We reviewed these on my site, I don’t want to be a slut and post the link, but what they called “Death Valley Chipotle” wasn’t very hot. They do make some good chips though, so let’s hope these have a good kick.

  2. Kaitis says:

    Oh duh, You reviewed those too. I’m totally great at seeing links in articles.

    Yay Kettle Chips! I think the only brand that really has a dissappointing jalapeno chip is Poore Brothers. All of their chips for that matter lack salt and flavor.

  4. Woodenhand says:

    Hmmm This might be okay, but I’m weary of jalapeno chips, usually they are dissapointing, but here’s hoping these babies have a little boom boom pow

  5. brad says:

    Kettle chips have such potential but they always end up with too little flavor

  6. Rob says:

    When are you going to have another contest? I was just thinking about that, I have no idea why.

  7. Neil the hammer says:

    Are these chips like the Angry Whopper ? Lots of hype not much bite. I do admit that whats not even hot for one person is mouth watering scorching for another.


  8. Felix Tibs says:

    I agree, those death valley chips were El Sucko. Now Crunchers! makes a good jalapeno chip!

  9. Chuck says:

    It’s hard to go wrong with kettle cooked jalepeno potato chips.

  10. Let's says:

    I tried these a few days ago, and they were okay. They’re kind of similar to Dirty Chips’ (a smaller kettle chip brand) jalapeno chips. Neither one has anything more than a tiny bit of heat.

    @orb205: I haven’t tried the Poore Brothers chips, but I keep passing by them and heading to the Kettle Chips.

    @Woodenhand: Boom boom!

    @brad: But you have to admit that they come out with some unusual flavors. Beer Cheddar?

    @Rob: Because you’re hungry, but don’t want to pay for something to eat? We will be holding a new prize drawing soon. Maybe next week.

    @Neil the hammer: I’m going to say that these are probably going to be like the Angry Whopper.

    @Felix Tibs: Pringles makes an awesome potato crisp made out of potato flakes and packaged in a tall cylindrical can.

    @Chuck: We shall find out, whenever the hippie natural food store across the street gets them.

    @Let’s: Thank you for sharing your opinion about them.

  12. Pretty much love anything Kettle Brand puts out. Their Thai and Salt/Pepper are my favorite. I will have to try these, great review.

  13. Marvo says:

    @wouldibuyitagain: I hear the Spicy Thai is really good, but I haven’t tried it yet.

  14. Kettle sent me some of these chips to try and I loved them! :D No they aren’t super spicy but they have a great kick that gets the job done.

  15. Marvo says:

    @Andrea (Off Her Cork): :’( I wish Kettle would send me some chips to review and give away to readers. Oh who am I kidding. I wouldn’t give them away. I like Kettle chips so much that I would keep them all for myself and eat them until I reached a greasy coma.

    Thanks for sharing your opinion about them.

    If you want some good Jalapeno chips, you can’t go wrong with Tim’s.
