Sassy Snack Sunday

In my venture to cut gluten, I’ve been discovering new foods that I can eat and saying good bye to ones that I can’t. Sometimes I’ll find my old favorites redone and gluten free.

I thought I’d share some of the delicious (and maybe not do delicious) gluten free snacks I come across.

Today I’ll be reviewing Kettle Brand Potato Chips. Flavor: Mable Bacon.


I wanted some chips top go with my lunch today and found these. It was the flavor that intrigued me. Maple bacon. Sounds weird but also tastey.


They have a Certified Gluten-Free label right on the front.


In addition to no gluten, they are also MSG and preservatives free.


All right now on to the taste test! Here is the rubric that I will judging the chips on:

On a scale of 1 to 10 for each category-

Flavor-Does it really taste like the flavor it claims to be?
Crunchiness- Are they super crunchy or do they taste stale?
Grease– Can I grease a pan with them or do they leave no trace?
Thickness– Do they fall apart as soon as you pick them up or are they unbreakable?
Sassiness-How sassy are they?

Here we go!

  1. Flavor-They mostly just taste like BBQ chips. There is a sweetness which is the maple, but I can’t really taste the bacon. This is disappointing because I was looking forward to eating bacon flavored chips. For flavor these Maple “Bacon” get a 5.
  2. Crunchiness-The level of crunch, however, is a lot higher. The crunch is so loud I can barely hear myself think. Which is a good thing if you like crunchy foods. Crunch level=9.
  3. Grease-There is grease on them, but it seems to be minimal. I was finding myself wiping my hands on my pants, but little residue was left behind. Grease level=3.
  4. Thickness-These chips are really thick, not like flimsy Lays that are thin and brittle. Thickness level=8.
  5. Sassiness-I don’t feel that these chips are that sassy. I think if I could taste the bacon, they’d be sassier, but they just taste like sweet BBQ chip. Sassy level=5.

Grand total=30.

Though the flavor is a bit misleading, I would still say these chips are still pretty delicious. I would definitely recommend them to fellow gluten-free eaters.
