Creamy French Onion

An update is finally here! I've been rather busy these last couple of weeks and now I really want to go ahead and start editing this blog to make it even more awesome! ^_^ The pics of the potato chips/bags are all my own and please don't steal the pics without consulting me first. As always thanks for reading.

On with the review....

I was scouring through the chip aisle at Wholefoods when a highlighter green bag caught my eye, Creamy French Onion! Ooh I thought, I should definitely try these, next to salt n vinegar, sour cream & onion is one of my favorites. The brand is Madhouse Munchies, which I had yet to discover. They certainly have been around for a while now and popular with health conscious eaters too! Only bad part is that they're a little hard to find. Wholefoods or Giant are the two big grocery stores that carry them. [logo on the right]

MJ's review on taste: Healthy and delicious! One of my favorite french onion dip chips. I mean seriously, wow, as soon as I opened the bag, you got a woof of some yummy onion-y flavor. Have you ever gotten a bag of plain chips and then bought some french onion dip to go along with it? Well, yeah, kind of tastes like that but without the need of the dip! As it says on the bag, "The dip is on the chip." Love it!

Light, crisp and crunchy. If you like sour cream & onion, I highly recommend this for you.

Here is a close can really see the awesome onion flavored flecks!

Product Description:

In 1996 I left the financial markets and set out for the clear skies and wide-open spaces of Vermont to pursue my vision of the perfect potato chip. Four years later, I have never looked back and have never eaten better! I first started by hand-slicing small batches of fresh New England potatoes into a small French-fry cooker I borrowed from a friend with a restaurant. I experimented for months testing different oils, potatoes and seasoned toppings. My plan was simple; not to give up until I had discovered the point at which perfect flavor merged with a healthy, simple recipe. Eventually, I found that perfect recipe: Select North American potatoes cooked in pure high-monounsaturated canola oil and topped with only all natural spices, herbs and sea salt. Nothing artificial is used, ever - only simple, premium, healthful and naturally delicious ingredients go into making our chips. Life became a Madhouse from that point on! As word got out about our recipes, our popularity among chip connoisseurs grew at a frantic pace. While we have been copied and shoved-around by the "Big Guys" in the chip world, they just can't seem to get it right, and for now, our unique micro-chips are, alone, at the top. I certainly hope that you enjoy Madhouse Munchies as much as we do. Enjoy!
