Early this afternoon, while in the middle of weeding, the UPS delivery dude (I just can’t shake off the Californian in me) arrived, I was icky and covered with pollen and weed seeds, and was glad that he offered to just drop off the packages at the front door and not bother me with signing off. When I passed by the porch, I noticed that there were two packages. (Surprise!) I only expected one. One of the boxes was reddish and on the visible side, it had “DELICIOUS” written on it. I took that as a sign that I should wrap up weeding, clean up, and open the box of deliciousness. What could it be, I wondered. Whoa, whoa, whoa. It’s Christmas in August! Lucky me! Kettle Brand Chips is having its 30th birthday and to celebrate, Kettle Foods, Inc. gave away limited edition chips to 5,000 randomly selected winners. The flavors are: Red Chili, Jalapeño Jack, Salsa with Mesquite, and Cheddar Beer. Oh my! I’m exercising self control like no one would believe. I wish my potato chips queen sister, Claire, is here so I could share the wealth but I’m also glad she’s nowhere near or all the chips would be devoured. In. One. Day. Interested in trying out the limited edition flavors? 5 oz bags of all four classics will be available in select natural food stores for $2.79 each, while Jalapeño Jack and Red Chili, in 8.5 oz bags for $3.49, will be avaible in grocery stores this fall. If you want to get your hands on these retired flavors sooner rather than later, visit the Kettle Chips online store. Stat!
To the good folks of Kettle Foods, Inc., thank you for the goodies! Happy 30th Birthday Kettle Brand Chips! May you have many more birthdays and offer more tantalizing potato chips flavors!
