French Fry Diary 365: Hawaiian Luau BBQ Kettle Style Potato Chips

My friend Marni has a skill, well, besides those. She has this amazing ability to win contests, contests of any kind. Recently she won a contest on Facebook and the prize, wait for it, was potato chips. She won a selection of Hawaiian Kettle Style Potato Chips, from Hawaiian Snacks, some of which she shared with French Fry Diary.

Marni gave me a whole 8 oz. bag of the Luau BBQ Potato Chips, a beautiful orange bag with pictures of Hawaiian native people barbecuing on a sunshine paradise beach, framed in lotus flowers. The bag also promises the chips to be 'sweet & spicy' and 'crispy & crunchy.'

Inside were, as promised, very crunchy and crispy kettle chips, but not so much barbecue flavor. At least not at first. There's a slow burn going on in your mouth, have some cold beverage handy, cuz it lingers. Being good kettle chips, they're great for dipping, preferably ice cream for me, as it would add a good contrast with the hot vs. cold.

Marni also got the original version, and the Maui Onion. The Originals were pretty typical. Hawaiian Snacks also makes onion snacks, in the onion and bbq flavors. All in all I was impressed, and would like give them all a try as well. Good stuff, thank you, Marni!
