After being so pleased with the jalapeno-flavored chips within Cape Cod’s Infused chip line, I decided to purchase the Mediterranean Kettle Cooked Potato Chips because my curiosity got the best of me. All of the spices and flavoring in this line are cooked right in, so you don’t have the gritty, flavor-dust that typically sticks to your fingers like a lot of other chips. The Infused line is also less greasy than other brands.
Upon reading the packaging for the Mediterranean chips, you learn that they are flavored with a ‘blend of basil, oregano, and rosemary with a hint of garlic.’ However, right off the bat, you are hit with a blast of rosemary as you chew your first chip. I think the rosemary is an extremely overpowering flavor with these chips, and the basil and oregano is an afterthought that lingers in your mouth. You will definitely need a piece of gum after eating these chips.
I feel that the chips are edible, but I wouldn’t purchase again.
However, I do think that they’d make a nice accompaniment for a hearty sandwich.
As a side note, the company currently has peel-off coupons on the chip bags to take 75 cents off of the newly launched infused Cape Cod chips, as well as their Cape Cod Thins Potato Chips, and Cape Cod Puffs (which I haven’t seen in the grocery stores yet).
Other highlights of the chips include:
- The chips are a ‘made in the U.S.A.‘ product.
- The chips are certified gluten free.
- This is a non-GMO product.
- Only 0.5% saturated fat per serving (about 19 chips).
- You satisfy 20% of your daily recommended value for vitamin C.
The chips contain no preservatives, no hydrogenated oils, and no artificial colors or flavors.
Another flavor in the infused line of Cape Cod chips is Jalapeno, which is made with the hot pepper and sea salt. I have reviewed those chips here, if you’d like to learn more.
