What’s the Verdict with Cape Cod Infused Fresh Mediterranean Kettle Cooked Potato Chips?

Cape Cod Infused Mediterranean Kettle Cooked Potato Chips

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.

    I feel like over-seasoned potato chips are ruining my life. Okay, neither a fact, nor fake news. More of an alternative fact. I too love Ja’la Kettle chips.

    I have purchased several of the Lays contest flavors, and many of the new Pringles ‘trendy’ flavors. With each one having that over powering powder coating and mixture created in a chemist lair, not lab.
    What gets me is that they have tester’s who say these flavors are good to go. What???? Infused is a step in the right direction.

    I have a feeling Cape Cod Infused Fresh Mediterranean Kettle chips would be very good with half the flavor, maybe mix one plain Kettle bag with one of these.

    I’m keeping an eye out for the puffs.

      Lol Kathy…your opening sentence cracked me up! I too purchased a bunch of the Lays contest flavors, and have been disappointed. I think the last one that I really liked was the Wavy Greek Tzatziki Potato Chips. Other than that…it felt like I’d taste the ‘exotic’ flavor and then after eating a bunch, the fun wore off. I haven’t even touched the new trendy Pringles. None of the flavors really stood out to me, and I just have this feeling that I’m going to be disappointed. But these Jalapeno chips…I REALLY like…they just taste ‘cleaner’ and more flavorful.
