Kettle Veg Chips: Salted, Honey & Black Pepper, Balsamic Vinegar
Now that Summer is over, Kettle Chips are here to save the day with warming earthy flavours perfect for autumn snacking, with their revamped Veg Chips range. Joining the existing flavour "Lightly Salted" is "Honey and Black Pepper" and "Sea Salt and Balsamic Vinegar", all made with crunchy parsnip, sweet potato and beetroot chips. All varieties are suitable for vegetarians and free of artificial ingredients.
As I've never tried any of these before I began with the original variety: Lightly Salted. These turned out to be some very moreish and flavoursome crisps, with definite warming earthy flavours from the parsnip and beetroot. They were very addictive but felt more satisfying than regular potato chips, thanks to the more wholesome flavours on offer.
The Honey and Black Pepper variety were similar but with a honey twist, this enhanced the earthy flavours perfectly with the pepper bringing a nice warming spicy kick. Very moreish!
The balsamic vinegar variety brought a whole different flavour edge to the chips, with that unmistakable sharpness of balsamic vinegar, that somehow made the chips even more moreish than the regular varieties. It's a combination that works really well.
Overall, I have to say this is a great range from Kettle Chips and these are the perfect flavours for autumn and winter snacks. I'm sure they'd go down a storm over the festive season too!
