UTZ SWEET POTATO CHIPS

If you’re expecting a sweet potato chip to texture like a white potato chip, you’ll be disappointed. The texture is thinner and a lot less crispy.

I like them though. Not immediately. The texture is not what I’m accustomed to. They don’t grab the dip like a ruffle chip would, but then the plain white chips don’t grab the dip very well either. Maybe UTZ can create a ruffled sweet potato chip – something a little thicker.

One thing I’ve noticed with vegan foods is that if there’s no animal in it, then somehow manufacturers think they have to take everything else out too – all the stuff that makes a food taste and texture good.

The salt on these chips was barely perceptible. Okay, so maybe most people should eat less salt, but why is that requirement only attached to vegan foods, animal-free foods? It doesn’t make any logical sense.

Lots of people don’t eat animals because of the ethical issue surrounding slaughter. It has nothing to do with health, or salt, or flavorings.

I’ve had UTZ ‘s other chips before. There’s salt on them. Why so little salt on the sweet potato chips, just because they might be a little healthier being orange?

A little more salt, okay?
