Now Kettle has come out with a new line of reduced-fat chips, a happy medium between their thick, crunchy regular chips, and the Baked style. I tried a sample of the new chips, which boast 40 percent less fat than regular.
To me, these reduced-fat chips taste nearly identical to the regular version — very fatty and indulgent. They're 130 calories per serving, with 6 grams of fat. The Sea Salt flavor is already on grocery shelves; Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper and Sea Salt & Vinegar Krinkle Cut will be out in August. The suggested retail is $3.49 per 8-ounce bag, which makes them half the price of the baked line.
I still like the baked line of chips better. I eat regular chips so rarely that I've become accustomed to the taste and texture of a less greasy chip. But if you already eat regular chips often, and want to painlessly cut back on the fat, this would be the way to do it.
