Taste Test: Kettle Zesty Ranch Krinkle Cut Chips

The Best Kettle Chips We've Ever Had

Kettle chips Fact: Team Yum loves Kettle Chips. From jalapeño to cheddar and sour cream to Fully Loaded Baked Potato, we've never met one we didn't like. But just the other day, we discovered one that was good enough to be the end-all, be-all of all potato chips in this world. The best Kettle Chips we've ever had, right this way . . .

Behold Kettle Brand Zesty Ranch Krinkle Cut Potato Chips, the brand's newest flavor, which danced onto our tongues and forever into my life on precisely Dec. 28. I didn't realize I even had such a passion for chips until these changed my very existence.

When I eat them, my no-seconds policy allows for thirds. When I drop them, the zero-second rule becomes the 10-second rule.

Although I usually keep snack foods at my desk, these must — I repeat, must — be kept walking distance away in the depth of our kitchen cupboards.

Kettle Zesty Ranch chips are the perfectly calibrated amount of sodium, onion, and tang. They are the crunchiest chips I've ever tasted. I'm incapable of overhearing the juiciest of office gossip while eating them. And I'm perfectly OK with that.
