Statue of Liberty… Fireworks… Classic flag colors of red, white & blue…?? Oh, we get it!! Very subtle, and just in the nick of time for this year’s 4th of July celebration – everyone’s favorite CANADIAN chip brand?? – releases for you these limited edition RED, WHITE & BLUE potato chips!!
Alright, go ahead and ask your questions below:
1) Are the potato chips really red, white & blue? A: Yes, but there are many more white ones than either blue or red. And yes, the potato chips would look very cool in a bowl on your table this 4th of July.
2) Do the blue and red chips taste different than the white chips? A: Not really. Maybe a slightly more nutty, burnt sugars quality essence to them, but for the most part it is just for visual purposes.
3) Do you guys feel at all bad for chomping on our country’s Independence Day themed potato chips made by a Canadian chip company? A: Heck No. And you shouldn’t either.
There really isn’t too much to be said about Covered Bridge’s tasty tri-color potato chips. The chips are on the thinner side, extra light and pretty crispy, with a prominent potato flavor. Sort of like a standard container of mixed nuts, the bag consisted of approximately 50% of the boring ingredient – white potato chips (representing peanuts in the mixed nuts), with the other half made up evenly of blue and red potato chips (almonds, pecans and cashews!). We were more than satisfied with their sea salt coverage, and felt very patriotic while scarfing down the bag, despite the holiday still being a couple of weeks away.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
