Review: Kettle Brand - Parmesan Garlic Potato Chips

Kettle Brand's Parmesan Garlic Potato Chips are kettle-cooked and seasoned with a savory combination of Parmesan cheese and garlic.

An 8.5 oz. bag has a suggested price of $3.79, but I got this bag courtesy of Kettle Brand.

Kettle-cooked chips are thick-cut and have a distinctive and firm crunch in comparison to classic-style potato chips. The thicker cut of the chips seems to help with limiting the oily taste and emphasizing the actual potato flavor.

Because Parmesan cheese is quite salty, I was expecting a pretty punchy flavor for the Parmesan Garlic Potato Chips and they delivered. There's a noticeable funk to the chips, which I appreciate because it actually tastes like the aged, hard cheese in its namesake. In combination with the pungent flavor of the garlic, there was a noticeable savoriness to the chips that was quite satisfying.

There's an almost a tang to the chips that brings to mind the acrid bite of raw garlic without any of the spiciness. The aftertaste of the chips is predominantly garlicky but there's a definite earthiness to it as well from the Parmesan. The chips taste salty upon initial chewing but end with a mild potato flavor.

Kettle Brand Parmesan Garlic Potato Chips really honor the robust flavors of its two seasoning components. I personally enjoyed them quite a bit, but I can see how the strong Parmesan flavor could be off-putting or bitter to some.
