Boulder Canyon Pumpkin Pie

In the spirit of the season, today we've got a NON-LAY'S bag! Here is Boulder Canyon's "Pumpkin Pie" flavored Kettle Cooked Potato Chips. This bag is CRAZY good! It tastes JUST LIKE Pumpkin Pie!
The cook on the chips is really nice, it's not that overly crunchy Kettle style, the texture is more like regular cooked chips. The seasoning is very reminiscent of these Cinnamon Sugar Cheetos Sweetos, or Lay's Cappuccino but with a Pumpkin Pie spice twist. Basically it tastes like real Pumpkin Pie with lots of Cinnamon.
There is a flaw to these chips though. While the seasoning is awesome, and the chips are well cooked, something is amiss between the 2. The seasoning seems to come off the chips really easily. When you're eating them, you basically get all the seasoning, and then it's gone, and all that's left is a plain un-seasoned potato flavor. It's actually kind of unpleasant. For me though, that was easily remedied by just shoving 18 more chips in my mouth before I was done chewing. The flavor is addictive, it just disappears quickly.
If you are a sweet chip fan like I am, or a Pumpkin Spice fan, you gotta seek these out. I picked these up at Cost Plus World Market in their Pumpkin Spice area. They are fun and unique in a world full of boring savory chip flavors.
 Happy Hunting Chip Fans!

  1. Isn't it odd how with some crisps the flavour seems an integral part of the whole crisp experience, and with others it seems like an afterthought.
    I have to say Lay's Cappuccino was one of my least favourite crisps ever, but I have recently quite enjoyed a Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Roll from M&S. Rather good.
