Your hometown potato chip company has done it again. Oh, how we love Mikesell’s Snacks for any occasion. And now, they bring us a couple of new, terrific products that quite honestly are surprisingly good.
The Food Adventures Crew have been enjoying Mikesell’s brand snacks for as long as we can remember, especially Chef House and The Big Ragu. Even our New York girl, Hungry Jax and her family have been crunching away on her decade in Dayton on those groovy chips. We have been on tours of the plant. We have been lucky enough to be behind the scenes, at test taste meetings, and met the workers that make the magic possible.
As we end 2016, Luke Mapp, VP of Marketing and his staff have come up with two winners. Seriously.. you gotta try these. The new flavors are “NACHO CHEESE TORTILLA CHIPS” AND “TANGY CHIPOTLE BBQ KETTLE COOKED POTATO CHIPS.” They are 2 more reasons to reach for your local brand, when in the potato chip aisle.
We give you Food Adventures take on these new “hot off the presses” flavors….
HERE’S THE SKINNY ON MIKESELL’S TWO NEW “MUST EAT” FLAVORS:
— NACHO CHEESE FLAVORED TORTILLA CHIPS: Ok, so this is Mikesell’s jab at the Nacho Cheese Dorito brand. The flavor is very close to Nacho Cheese Doritos, except a tad milder. It is a nice, easy snack. Nice, lightly flavored and definitely cheesey. One of the big improvements over other Nacho Cheese flavored tortilla products, is this chip is more sturdy. It holds up way better in french onion dip, queso and salsa than other brands. So, now you know, it is a strong hometown tortilla chip. You won’t have to go hunting
for half of your chip in the dip on this one. If you love Nacho Cheese Tortilla Chips and love dipping, this is the chip for you, hands down.
— TANGY CHIPOTLE BBQ KETTLE COOKED POTATO CHIPS: Wow, what a great flavor! You get the patented Mikesell’s Kettle cooked crunch, and the sturdiness of a dipping chip that wont break either (we just talked about this didn’t we?). Maybe we are tortilla happy today, but this flavoring is faintly reminiscent of the old Taco Flavor of Doritos from the 70’s/80’s. It has that spin for sure. We are sure you are going to love this new flavor. In a world where people are trying to put biscuit and gravy flavor into chips, this is a refreshing innovation that actually works. It fits. The Tangy Chipotle BBQ flavor is great, and not a novelty.
*** HONORABLE MENTION: Back in March, Mikesell’s released another amazing treat that quickly became one of our faves. Salted Caramel Puffcorn Delites has been out for less than a year, and they are incredibly delicious and addicting. If you have not tried these yet, you won’t believe how good they taste.
Well, now you have some ideas to fill the holiday snack bowls with this season. Do yourself and Dayton a favor. Reach for the local, good stuff. Continue to make Mikesell’s brand a part of your family parties. The whole “buy local” thing is never more true than here. Check out these two new products for yourself and continue to support your hometown chip company Mikesell’s, who has been supporting Dayton and local causes for over 100 years.
We bet you like the new flavors so much, you will ask Santa to bring you some….
