We all know that I love beer. That is a given.
Like almost every beer drinker, I enjoy eating a good salty snack while sipping the nectar of the gods. Pretzels, nuts, chips, fries (well ANYTHING fried) … and the list goes on. Recently, I have been really getting into chips. Two of my favorite brands are Kettle and Terra.
Each flavor combination found on Kettle™ brand chips is so distinct and delicious they inspire a passionate following from our fans. Everyone has a favorite flavor, whether it’s on our regular, baked, organic, or tortilla chips. Along with our other healthy snacks, each potato chip flavor is crafted with care by our talented Chief Flavor Architect and taste approved by our founder, who made the very first bag back in 1982.
Kettle makes a ridiculously good flavor called Spicy Thai. If you have never tried them, I advise against it. They are highly addictive.

A CHIP THAT TRAVELS FAR FOR FLAVOR
As true chip innovators, we love a challenge. So when a fan suggested that we take Thai cuisine’s complex balance of flavors – sweetness, spice and salt – and balance it on a chip, we reached for our passports. We’ve incorporated the refreshing sweetness and snap of ginger and the red peppery pop of Thai spice to create a collision of East and West in the crunch of the world’s most worldly chip. Have Kettle™ brand – will travel. No passport required.
Available in 2 oz, 5 oz, and 9 oz

Terra has always had a tradition of creating chef-inspired masterful combinations of unique vegetables with a variety of fabulous flavors.
My favorite Terra chip is the Mediterranean flavored exotic vegetable blend:

But I digress. This post is not about my favorite chips. This post is about a new brand of chips I recently stumbled upon while surfing the Internet.
I present to you BEER CHIPS: chips made with … well … BEER!!!
The “Beer Wench jury” is still out on this concept. Whereas I love beer and I love chips, I am not sure how well the two would taste together. I wonder what style beer the chips are flavored with? I cannot help but assume the chips taste similar to one of the many corporate mass-produced, urine-flavored “beers” made with a sub-par combination of corn, wheat and barley malt and virtually no hops. But, hey that is only an assumption. Either way, it seems to be a good marketing gimmick and has definitely gotten my attention.

If anyone has a chance to sample these, send me a review!!! For now, I’ll stick to my Kettle and Terra chips!!!
A while ago Kettle had a cheddar and beer flavored chip on the market in OH a few years ago. It was an odd flavor that I found pleasant and Mary found disgusting. They were super malty and cheesy tasting with a scent of fermentation. The scent was very reminiscent of hay sillege or fermented chopped hay that’s fed to cows. Almost none of the bitter hoppy flavor was in those chips at all. I couldn’t stop eating them long enough to pass judgement on them
My current favorite chip is the Kettle brand buffalo blue chip that tastes like buffalo wings and blue cheese, although the Thai flavored one is a close second.
Does this mean that there will be a Chip Wench blog?
they still have those cheddar beer chips actually. and honestly i love them they are one of my favourite chips on the market.
all in all, each flavour of kettle chips is amazing though
