Hey! Cape Cod’s Roasted Black Garlic Potato Chips have a cousin! Or is it sibling? They’re related, but I don’t know how. (Spotted by Aaron S at Giant.)

The adult Curate bars have names like Decadence, Tempting, and Indulgent. I think these Curate Kids Bars should have fun names too. Here’s some ideas that popped into my head: Delight, Merriment, Sparkle, and Joie de Vivre. (Spotted by Carla at Target.)

  1. The loaded chili cheese chips sound awesome. Too bad there are no ShopRites in my little corner of Ohio!

  2. The Franks Stingin Honey Garlic is really great. Light heat and a really nice garlic flavor…not too strong…just the right amount…not too sweet also. I have been putting it on everything!

  3. not sure y plp like franks.. its not tht spicy and i hate hate glass contaienrs. but a squuz bottle with a nice top is always good… u want heat and flavor but for all that salt? no way… i just get valencias for a dollar and pur it in my 30 onz sriracha bottle… u also need to make sure the top is good.. the noozle usually gets clogged so id stick with the sricaha and boars head top.. anyhooos.. honey garlic? not bad. i can make that in chiken easy.

  4. I have tried the Beef Barbacoa Tacos flavor & it was better than the other one. The taco flavor tastd really beefy & spicy. So spicy & beefy…that it made my hands smell like meat. I taste the taco shell part as well.
