Potato chips flavored with tropical mango and blistering habanero?
Of course, it’s the newest flavor by Hawaiian Kettle Style Potato Chips.
I recently had a chance to sample the new ”Mango Habanero!” (don’t forget that exclamation mark) chips.
They’re thin and crisp to be sure. They have a kick of heat — not nearly as potent as an actual fresh habanero, but you’ll definitely notice a warm burn on the palate. The mango is more elusive. There’s a very faint back-note of something fruity. But if I didn’t know it was supposed to be mango, I’m not sure I would have detected it.
The chips are available in a range of different sized bags at your local grocery stores.
Contest: One lucky Food Gal reader will get a chance to win four small (1-ounce each) bags of the new “Hawaiian Kettle Style Mango Habanero!” chips. It’s the perfect size for tucking into a lunch bag.
Entries, open only to those in the continental United States, will be accepted through midnight PST July 7. Winner will be announced July 9.
How to win your chips?
Just tell me how you are like a “chip off the old block,” as the saying goes. Best answer wins.
Here’s my own answer to that question:
“When it comes to hair, I am my mother’s daughter. Alas. As a youngster, her hair was thick, wavy and massive. But when she reached her 20s, it grew baby fine. So did mine at exactly that same time. When it comes to a voracious sweet tooth, I am my father’s daughter. My Dad never met a piece of See’s Candy he didn’t like. He was known to have a piece of pie before dinner. And he wasn’t above having two desserts at one time. As for me? Guilty on all three counts.”
