Review: Boulder Canyon - Pumpkin Pie and Turkey & Gravy-Flavored Potato Chips

Boulder Canyon's Pumpkin Pie-flavored and Turkey & Gravy-flavored potato chips are back for this Thanksgiving season and feature kettle-cooked potato chips flavored like pumpkin pie or turkey and gravy.

These typically cost around $3.39 per 5-oz bag but I received these courtesy of Boulder Canyon.

I have to hand it to the brand as both potato chip flavors taste as they magically imbued each chip with the flavor of pumpkin pie and turkey and gravy, respectively.

The Pumpkin Pie-flavored Potato Chips offered the distinct taste of both spiced pumpkin pie and the underlying fried potato. The chips are unsalted but not overly sweet. The pumpkin pie notes and the potato chip flavors both turned out really well but much like I wouldn't sprinkle a slice of pumpkin pie with potato chips, I didn't care much for the joining of the two. It wasn't bad but it's less than the sum of its parts.

The Turkey & Gravy potato chips worked out a lot better. Like the pumpkin pie-flavored chips, they indeed tasted actual turkey and gravy. Specifically, a delectable herb gravy with a light note of turkey at the tail end. Given that potato is often served with turkey and gravy, the potato chips, unsurprisingly, complemented the flavors very well.

If you happen to want an somewhat unconventional snack for your holiday dinner that also fits the Thanksgiving theme, these are definitely worth trying (especially Turkey & Gravy) because it's just eerie how the chips taste like their namesakes. My hat's off to the folks at Boulder Canyon.
