Michael Season's Kettle Cooked Potato Chip Review & Giveaway

Potato Chips..one of my guilty pleasure snacks.  I love all flavors: Cheddar & Sour Cream, Barbecue, Original just to name a few.  To me, there's nothing better than hanging outside with the family munching on a few potato chips with maybe a little ranch dip or french onion dip.  Once we start munching before too long we realize the bag is gone.  Some potato chips out there are no so good for you, filled with trans fats, sodium, etc.  There are remarkably some healthier options to allow you to eat the foods that you crave.  I was honored to have the opportunity to work with a company that I have worked with on two other occasions: Michael Season's.  Michael Seasons motto: Feel Good Snacking and let me tell you if all food could taste THIS good I would definitely always feel good about everything I eat.  

I was sent a variety of Michael Season's NEW Kettle Cooked Potato Chips, and boy not only was I excited but my whole family was excited.  My hubby went for the Sea Salt and Balsamic Vinegar flavor first.  Me I'm not a huge Salt and Vinegar chip kind of person, once in a while I have to buy some for the hubby, but around our house he is the only one that eats them.  I would have figured he would go for the Jalapeno Kettle Cooked Chips first.  So as he sat down with the bag of Sea Salt and Vinegar chips, I could definitely tell that he liked them.  I asked him if I could have at least one so I could write up my review and that was pretty much all I got.  Over the past couple of nights, he finished up the bag.  Upon asking what his opinion of them were, he said that were very good, the flavor was not overly done with vinegar like some of the other chips that he has had, they were light and crispy and probably the best Salt and Vinegar chips that he has ever had.  My girls and I dug into the Honey Barbecue Kettle Cooked Potato Chips and I was so pleased with this product.  These chips were beyond crispy and crunchy, which is exactly how I liked my chips.  The Honey Barbecue flavor was amazing, not too spicy and not too sweet.  I have tried A LOT of different barbecue flavored chips, some good and some not so good.  I really enjoyed these chips the best because of the combination of flavor and freshness.  We also received Jalapeno flavor, which hubby thoroughly enjoyed as well as the Unsalted and Lightly Salted varieties, which both taste great by themselves or with dip.  I love that all of these chips are not greasy like some other chips that I have eaten, so I don't feel at all guilty about eating them.

I love the combination of Jay's Potato Chips & Bareman's French Onion Dip. No other taste like it! I would love to try the unsalted chips. I have been trying to cut out some sodium and this would be a great place to start.
