French Fry Diary 294: Safeway Barbecue Potato Chips

The first thing that attracted me to this store brand of chips at Gennuardi's was the unique art on the front of it. Gracing the front of the 10.5 oz. bag of Safeway Barbecue Flavored Potato Chips is a gigantic chip with a bull Magic Marker-ed over it, and signed by the Snack Artist TM.

The gigantic chip kinda unnerved me. At the bottom of the bag it said "Product Enlarged to Show Texture." It made me compare real chips to pic for a while, just to check out the "texture." I never thought to notice the texture if potato chips before.

The bag continued to amaze when I realized it had one of those special resealable zipper seals. The problem of course is that the opening is in the top front of the bag, instead of the more logical, more reasonable top of the bag. If nothing else, it makes it more difficult to get the chips out - and really, getting the chips out is goal one for a potato chip bag.

The chips themselves are pretty standard for store brand, similar to Herr's gold foil potato chips. They're good, if you can get them out if the bag...
