My Barbeque Potato Chips Were Dirty

The Dirtiest Potato Chips Ever

Imagine the disappointment that you’d feel, if you opened up a bag of potato chips and they were dirty. I mean literally so dirty, that the whole bag was filled with dirt, containing just two chips. You wouldn’t just be angry, you be Incredible Hulk Furious. So furious, that you’d possibly turn green and go on a deadly rampage, throwing cars and knocking buildings down.

The Potato Chips Were Healthy In A Dirty Way

Fortunately, the bag wasn’t fulled with actual dirt, and there was more than two chips. Sorry, but the Hulk rage will have to wait for another time. Instead, these kettle cooked trouble making chips were roasted in peanut oil. Not only did these barbecue chips taste deliciously dirty, they were actually very bad for you. Or were they? With a little research, and finding a reputable source for information, my mind was put at ease.

Peanut oil is one of the healthiest oils, providing many of the same health benefits as Olive oil. Peanut oil has been proved to improve cholesterol levels. Lower cardiovascular disease. And even turn you into a genius, like me. Ok, I made up that very last part, but by now I hope you get the point of how healthy Peanut oil truly is.

Dirty Potato Chips Was Seductive

Tasting great and being healthy is excellent, but means nothing without the right type of packaging. The honest truth is that there’s hundreds of potato chip brands hogging the shelves, all promising the same benefits. Turn any brands bag around and they will all say the same thing. No artificial colors, trans fat, artificial flavors, preservatives, sweeteners, etc. Are you bored with reading this type of crap yet? I sure know I am, because just like you, I’m bombarded by this type of list on a daily basis.

So what made me take a chance on this relatively new and unknown brand? It consisted of two things. The packaging and where the display rack was placed. Red combined with the word dirty, makes me think that these potato chips are bad news. It’s like you know that buying them is wrong, but you can’t fight the temptation because they’ll make you feel so good.

Where they placed the potato chip rack at Hart’s Local Grocers was also very smart. They put the darn thing right in front of the grill section where they serve burgers, sandwiches, and fries. I don’t know about you, but when I eat these kinds of foods, I definitely crave a nice bag of dirty potato chips. The packaging combined with the location is enough to make even the strongest cave in. And not to toot my own horn, but I’m pretty strong. Ok, maybe I’m self centered and selfish, but so can you. Like they say, if you can’t beat them, join them. Now come join me.

Dirty Potato Chips Tastes Sinful

As you can see, I set you up with that last sentence to join me in eating some dirty potato chips. If you thought I meant something else, I’m sorry to disappoint you. What you wont be disappointed with is the taste of these naughty, dirty potato chips. They have an earth shattering crunch that’s more powerful than a nuclear explosion. The peanut oil combined with the all natural barbecue, sabotages your taste buds. And the whole time that you’re eating them, you’re going to be thinking that it’s so wrong, but feels so right. But don’t worry, because I already explained that peanut oil has many health benefits, and if you need more proof you can check out this other link Here.

The Dirty Potato Chip Journey Ended

As I jumped on my good friend Brompton, I felt a huge sigh of relief. We were both heading home after traveling so many miles. The days of traveling the globe, similar to Indian Jones, was over. No more looking for the Holy Grail of potato chips. Not only did I finish the dirty bag of potato chips during lunch, I shoved a few extra into my Brompton Bag. I definitely made up the part about traveling the globe, looking for the worlds best potato chips, but definitely not the part about how fantastic these dirty potato chips taste. If you’re looking for potato chips that taste like their so wrong, but so right by being healthy, then look no further than dirty potato chips.
