I spotted a new PopChips flavor on the shelf at Target, so I opted to pick it up. PopChips Salted Caramel it sounded interesting because I’m becoming more and more a fan of salted caramel items.I had these tucked away in the cabinet and pulled them out one day when I was in the mood for something crunchy but something sweet.
After opening the bag … I have to say I was rather let down. The chips tasted more along the lines of a sweet kettle corn. I got the minor hint of caramel, but there was truly no real “salted caramel” in there. I was aiming for that sweet caramel flavor that also brought fourth a salty bite. The chips themselves are classic PopChips but the flavor on these just wasn’t there which is why it was such a let down. I ended up giving the bag away because I wasn’t going to make myself have to eat them because I purchased them.
A serving is 1 ounce (roughly 16 chips) and is 130 calories or 3 points plus values.
I have seen the PopChips Katy’s Kettle Corn at Target for the longest time. In all honesty, I refrained from picking them up because kettle corn is not one of my favorite snacks. While out shopping I found individual bags on sale at one of my local dollar stores for 50 cents, so I grabbed a bag to give it a try. This way, if I didn’t like it, it was 50 cents “wasted”.
The Popchips are light, airy and crispy like normal PopChips are. They are flavored with a mildly sweet coating. It’s actually not overwhelming (with that sugar flavor or even the artificial sweetener flavor) like some kettle corn popcorns can be.It’s a good balance between savory and sweet. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed these and will most likely repurchase at some point when I’m looking for a sweet, crispy potato chip like snack.
