French Fry Diary 298: 365 Mesquite Barbecue Potato Chips

Back at one of my favorite places to shop, Whole Foods, I had just picked up a couple burgers from their incomparable meat counter and I was looking for chips to not only go along with them, but also to go on top of the burgers for flavor and crunch. Barbecue flavors are usually the best and I spied something new - 365 Mesquite Barbecue Potato Chips Classic.

Now 365 is the Whole Foods store brand, not that there's anything wrong with that, but like most WF snack products, the bag is just about impossible to open without a scissors. Something really has to be done about that.

These chips are thin regular potato chips, inconsistently seasoned, but not greasy. They have an interesting but pleasant smoky afterburn if you eat more than a few at a time. The seasoning contains a few intriguing wild cards like cinnamon and celery, as well as the usual suspects like cayenne and paprika.

Bottom line, they worked well on my burgers, adding that extra crunch and extra flavor. Yum. Recommended.
