Popchips Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips Review

Popchips Sour Cream & Onion Potato ChipsPopchips say, "We don't fry it (unhealthy). We don't bake it (undelicious). We take wholesome potatoes, add a little heat and pressure, and pop! It's a chip. The only thing added is a flavorful blend of seasonings for a snack so delicious and crispy, you won't even notice it's (we hesitate to say) healthier." Hey - I don't think baked chips are 'undelicious' nonetheless, we have to agree about the deliciousness of Popchips Cheddar and Popchips Original. I wanted to try more flavors, so I picked up a bag of Popchips Sour Cream & Onion.

I've had Sour Cream & Onion chips before, and I surprised myself by liking the intense flavor. The Popchips version has a much milder flavor, which I liked, but not as much as others I've had. The chips are a little thicker than regular potato chips, but somehow more airy - I guess that's the "pop" in "Popchips." There is a little residue that gets left on the fingers - but not much. I have to admit this was not one of my favorite Popchips varieties because of the mild flavor.

Each bag (23 grams) provides 100 calories, 11% of the daily value for sodium, 1 gram of fiber and protein plus 2 grams of sugars.

I got these Popchips Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips as a sample when I attended the 2010 Summer Fancy Food Show and Food Fete, but these retail for about $1.29 per bag. The ingredients list is all natural.

I'm sitting here eating these Popchips and drinking a Cocoa Cola Zero, and I feel like I want something else. I don't think it's the Coke Zero, so that tells me that I wasn't really satisfied with the flavor of these chips, and probably wouldn't buy it again ... time to dig into my goody bag and try something else I got from the Fancy Food Show - and it won't be the Bacon or Pizza Flavored Jones Soda - trust me, they were both weird tasting.
