What is it?
Much like all other SunChips, it’s made with 100 percent whole grain that gets masked with whatever seasoning is involved. In this case, it’s brown sugar. Also, a quick look through the ingredients shows that it also contains butter. I believe Paula Deen gets a fraction of a cent when butter is involved, although I’m too lazy to Google that to find out if it’s true.
How is it?
It doesn’t smell like sweet potatoes, but it does smell like buttered bread at an Italian restaurant. Not what I expected, but I’m pleasantly surprised by that. The sweet potato in the chip is noticeable and the brown sugar and underlying butter enhance it. There’s enough brown sugar on every chip to give it a mild sweetness and it’s not cloying in any way. The amount of sweet seasoning varies between chips but every one I stuffed into my mouth was delicious. I bought a 3-ounce bag and ate it in a matter of minutes.
Is there anything else I need to know?
These bring back memories of SunChips Cinnamon. Oh, you’ve never had that? You missed out. These chips also have me thinking of candied yams and I bet this would make a great topping to give the dish some crunch. Speaking of candied yams, I need to buy another bag because I’d like to dip these in marshmallow fluff. Also, because of all the whole grain, if you eat the entire bag, you’ll get 7 grams of fiber.
SunChips Sweet Potato & Brown Sugar are wonderful and I hope its a permanent addition. I know SunChips are usually savory so the idea of a sweet one might sound weird, but if you love sweet potato this is definitely worth a buy.
