Product Sample: Thomas Chipman Organic Sweet Potato Chips (20 Apr 2011)

Factory 45, 64-86 Beresford Road, Lilydale VIC 3140


New sweet potato variety

Thanks to Yarra Valley Snack Foods for sending me a generous box of 12 packs of the new Thomas Chipman Sweet Potato Chips which I of course shared around the office. I think I still prefer the Beetroot Chips but these were quite well liked. From the taste testers I had around at the time the one thing that most people noticed about these chips was they seemed to feel a bit oily when you picked them up. Each packet was listed as serving 3 people so you'd have to keep this in mind. I did feel a little full after eating a few handfuls so certainly one to have in moderation to keep the fat content to a minimum. I believe sweet potato is regarded as a healthier alternative to the normal potato so if you're already a fan of the Thomas Chipman range then you might want to check out this new variety to see how it compares.

Sweet potato chips are in my book 100 better than potato chips. Good to know that theres a good organic option out there.
