A potato chip habit is a hard one to kick and if I could, I would have a bag every day.
My palate craves anything zingy and tart, so I love salt and vinegar chips. The chips have to be lippuckeringly tart to earn any respect from me.
Two versions from Marks & Spencer do exactly that.
The Big Crinkle ($2.90 for a 55g bag) from Marks & Spencer has cider vinegar in spades. Its flavour is bold and bright, and the crinkle cut potatoes are satisfyingly thick. This is the chip of my dreams. Even better, it comes in a manageable - read small - 55g pack that I can polish off with little guilt.
For days when I cannot afford to indulge too much, the Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar Baked Potato Crisps ($2.30 for a 25g bag) is just the thing. There are 89 calories in each bag. I expect them to taste insipid but they are not. They are snappy and crisp for baked chips.
The malt vinegar is more mellow but there is enough to keep me happy.
