We know "Mmmmmm" isn't a word. But we took a bite of Trader Joe's Milk Chocolate Covered Potato Chips and that was the only thing we could manage to say. Or think. Or imagine. You could say that covering potato chips with chocolate is gilding the lily a little. Or a lot. We’re not above gilding the lily in the name of snacking, so we're okay with that.
These are thick, ridge-cut potato chips that have been drenched in creamy milk chocolate. Nothing more. Every crunchy bite brings a symphony of flavors and textures that please the palate and bring joy to the world. Or at least to your taste buds. Let's be frank: this is not health food. This is comfort food, pure and simple. And simply delicious. In the name of "moderation in all things," we think a moderate amount of Milk Chocolate Covered Potato Chips, at their moderate price of $2.99 for each 6.5 ounce bag, fits right in with a balanced lifestyle. You'll find these only at your neighborhood Trader Joe's.
