Dear Tim's Potato Chips: I Think I'm in Love

J. Kenji López-Alt 29 comments

Even though the ocean's on the wrong side and the oysters taste all funny, I've gotta admit, the West Coast has a few good things going for it. Better wineries, more dog-friendly cities, and an extra three hours to sleep every morning come to mind. Not to mention Tim's Cascade Potato Chips. That last one may be reason enough to make the cross-country jump. More

I Made A Spanish Tortilla Out Of Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 35 comments

This is one of those fantastic ideas that was born not out of a concerted effort to have fantastic ideas, but through sheer dumb luck and lack of planning. If necessity is the mother of inventions, then poorly-stocked pantries are the uncle of new recipes. Or something like that. More

Dan Souza 50 comments

It's not often that Lay's lets its customers choose a new chip flavor they want the company to produce. In fact, this is the only time they've ever done it.

Bar Bites: Barbecue Sweet Potato Chips

Marvin Gapultos Post a comment

When fried in hot oil, the sweetness in sweet potatoes concentrates and results in a tastier chip than regular russets, in my opinion. As for the barbecue flavor, a sprinkling of salt, cayenne, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and sweet paprika make for a great barbecue combination that won't overpower or mask the sweetness of the crisp, fried sweet potatoes.

Use your favorite brand of chocolate or whatever you have on hand. If you love intensely dark chocolate like I do, consider splurging for the good stuff. More

We Taste Every Flavor of Zapp's Potato Chips

Taste Tests J. Kenji López-Alt 40 comments

What makes Zapp's different? Well, for one thing, they aren't so thick that they embed in your gums when you bite into them. Secondly—and more importantly—they're cooked to a nice golden blond and heavily seasoned. None of the bitter dark brown spots; they pack all the delicate flavor and overt saltiness of a Lay's or a Wise chip, with just a bit more crunch to 'em. But the other great thing is the flavors. We try them all; here are our notes on each! More

In honor of its 30th birthday, Kettle Brand decided to bring back four of its retired flavors: Jalapeno Jack, Cheddar Beer, Salsa, and Red Chili.
