I am a huge fan of kale chips, I mean nowadays who isn’t? There is nothing better than having a chip that is also healthy, but for it to be good it needs to also be tasty. So what I am saying is that not all kale chips are created equal. I love to make my own kale chips (which usually are the best) but sometimes I like to try the number of packaged varieties that you can find in stores today.
Neil and I took the three flavors of Pacific Northwest Kale Chips on our recent road trip down to Rhode Island. The first flavor we tired was the Cheezy Crunch which we thought would have been our favorite flavor because who doesn’t love cheezy flavors? Don’t get me wrong they were good but not quite as cheezy as I would have liked.
The second flavor we tired was the Stumptown Original which were really tasty and I loved the use of hazelnuts in the flavoring. It’s not often that you find kale chip season made with hazelnuts usually you see cashews or sunflower seeds so this was a nice nutty change.
We liked all three but in the end we decided that the Glacier Peak Greens, which was a combo of cilantro, jalapeno and lime, to be our favorite of the three. We were both surprised how much we enjoyed this flavor combination. Neil isn’t a huge fan of cilantro and although I am I wasn’t sure if the lime and cilantro would be over powering but in the end the flavors were super subtle and really flavorful. We finished the whole bag of Glacier Peak Greens down to the last crumb on the way to Rhode Island.
Overall: Big fan of the kale chips and I loved the packaging-the chips stayed super crispy!
