The Real Kettle Chips and a Mother's Realization

We are thrilled to have partnered with Kettle Chips. 

I really didn't start paying attention to what my family was eating until my daughter was born. I wanted to feed her the best quality food so she could grow up healthy. I began reading about chemicals on fruits and vegetables and also about GMO's. I bought her only organic products and started a plan to grown my own food.

Well perhaps this first time mom was going a leeeettle bit overboard. You don't HAVE to grow your own food to eat healthy (if you can, more power to you. Want to grow mine too?). But, you do have to pay attention. Reading labels is very important.

Have you ever tried to make healthy snacks for your kids? I know I have. It surely is a lot of work and takes a lot of time that I just do not have. Turns out there is a simple option right in the grocery store. I guess making healthier choices doesn't have to be a lot of work. Kettle Brand Potato Chips are "The Real Kettle Chip" using the finest all natural non-GMO products to make their chips. As a matter of fact they are the first chip to be verified by the Non-GMO project. Pretty impressive stuff, huh? You should taste them. Then you will be impressed.

#TheRealKettleChips have all natural ingredients, no preservatives, only all natural colors and flavors. Almost sounds like health food! HA! Well, let's be reasonable. These are potato chips (fabulous, crunchy, flavorful chips that I can feel good about giving my 3 year old) so as with every thing, a little self control is a good thing. OR on the other hand, indulge a little if you want... I won't judge!

We have tried about 5 varieties of Kettle Brand Potato Chips and by far our favorite is "Backyard Barbeque" a perfectly scrumptious flavor that is mild enough for my 3 year old to enjoy, but flavorful enough for me to devour them by the handful. Don't judge! Seems we still have about 10 more to try. Guess we better get party planning.

By the way, this company got its start selling chips out of a van in 1982. Do ya dig it? LOVE that fact. Sounds like my kind of entrepreneurship. Then I think they get a full nomination for the coolest chip company ever. They have a BEER PAIRING GUIDE on their website. Seriously! What could make summer parties easier?

So, What's Your Flavor?
