Do potpourri and chips even belong in the same sentence? Who wants to think about fragrant, dried up plant particles while snacking? And who in their right mind would pay $4.59 for a 5-ounce bag of chips? That stuff is reserved for the stuck-up, booshie types.
Too bad Terra Potpourri Exotic Chips put me in a hypnotic trance. I could not justify the paying price, but the colorful combination of blue potatoes, red potatoes, Yukon Gold, and sweet potatoes was too mesmerizing to say no. Who knew blue potatoes even existed?
The ingredients list only the potatoes, plus canola, safflower, and sunflower oils with some salt. There’s nothing else on the nutrition label – no alien ingredients you can’t pronounce or chemicals that cause cancer in lab raptors. (those poor dinos)
Open up the bag and you’ll feel like a snot-nosed kid with a brand new toy. You will not want to share. Everyone around you will say “lemme see! lemme see!”, but your claws will clutch that bag with the death grip of an anaconda.
The chips are sliced ridiculously thicker than any I’ve seen. They come out crisp – and fresh too; fresh like that dirty hooker in Pretty Woman for making passes at rich men. But I’m a little ticked off. The high-pride ego I possess over my homemade sweet potato chips can’t hold a candle to the Exotics. They’re better than homemade and lightly salted with the power to not give you greasy oil-slicked fingers.
Regular chips are the equivalent of a vacation in a bat infested cave with the kiss of a mosquito swarm and holes in your pockets. Exotics are like a fancy getaway to Monte Carlo with an endless wad of cash. Check them out on Amazon.
