Chocolate Covered Potato Chips & $100 Giveaway

Chocolate Covered Potato Chips 002 We used to have nice lazy spring days, going to the beach or relaxing at home by the pool. However, now that my son is obsessed with baseball, we spend hours and hours during the week and weekend at the baseball field. I know so many of you can relate. But you know what? I actually love it. Because we are at the field so much, we have not so fancy picnics at the baseball park. I wish I would say I brought a beautiful wooded thatched picnic basket and we sprawled out on a red and white gingham picnic blanket…yeah, that doesn’t happen. We’re stuck on the oh so comfy (not) aluminum bleachers. Which is ok, because if we were all cute and had our picnic on the ground, the ants and bugs would literally carry us away…the price of living in Florida. I have become a pro at packing our meals for our time at the field. Again, no cute picnic basket, we use thermal totes and the reusable ice packs to keep everything cool. We usually pack your normal….sandwiches, drinks, fruit, string cheese and chips. Chocolate covered potato chips!!!! Speaking of chips, don’t you hate when you pack chips and they get all squished? Annoying. I have some advice, switch to Kettle Brand Chips. I learned a long time ago, the thin chips are a no-go when packing for a picnic! Kettle Brand Chips are ULTRA crunchy and super sturdy. I have tried other “kettle cooked” chips but they don’t hold a candle to the Kettle Brand. Seriously. Untitled They have been batch cooked by real honest to goodness people in Willamette Valley, Oregon for over 30 years. I know people are all in an uproar about GMO. Well you will be happy to know that their chips are made using only the finest all-natural, NON GMO ingredients. They are actually the FIRST potato chip to be verified by the Non-GMO Project. Kettle Brand Chips is committed to its Natural Promise- all natural ingredients, non-GMO oil and potatoes, and no trans fats, MSG or preservatives. Their products are also gluten free. Ohhhh and mercy..their flavors… Some of my favorites are Sea Salt & Vinegar, Sea Salt (perfect for my Chocolate Covered Potato Chips), Backyard Barbeque®, Spicy Thai™ (AMAZING), New York Cheddar, Honey Dijon, Sour Cream and Onion, Sweet Onion, Fully Loaded Baked Potato™, Unsalted, Zesty Ranch, Buffalo Bleu™(my husbands favorite) and Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper. All of them are amazing. My grocery store doesn’t carry them in the normal chip aisle. Cause they are special chips. They are in the Natural section of my store. A word to the wise..don’t try chocolate covered potato chips with wimpy thin chips, they will get soggy and nasty. The sturdy, uber crunchy Kettle Brand Potato Chips are the only ones I trust to stand up to dipping in chocolate. Chocolate Covered Potato Chips Chocolate Covered Potato Chips 001
