Review: Pepperidge Farm - Simply Potato Cracker Chips

Pepperidge Farm's Simply Potato Cracker Chips are part of their Baked Naturals line which competes with Kellogg's Special K brand in the wholesome snack category (i.e. potato chip substitutes).

These are baked and made mostly of a mix of wheat flour and dehydrated potatoes.

A 5.8-ounce bag carries a suggested retail price of $3.49.

These have a very light potato flavor slightly reminiscent of Pringles (unsurprisingly given that dehydrated potatoes are a main ingredient in both), but a more substantial and satisfying crunch similar to pretzel thins.

Beyond the light potato taste, there's a bit of sweetness (from brown sugar) and a good amount of saltiness going on. It's a pretty good although somewhat plain flavor.

Selling points include "60% less fat than the leading potato chip," "natural, no preservatives," and "26 cracker chips per serving."

Overall, these have a nice flavor and a really good crunch. They;re pretty similar to potato chips in heft and shape, but are smoother and a just a tad thicker. If you don't mind the more subtle flavors, these might suit your snacking needs.
