Trader Joe’s Pickle Potato Chips

This is the snack I’ve been dreaming about my entire life.

I love Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips, but sometimes I feel like the flavor is way too strong.  I don’t like opening a bag and feeling my sinuses clear up.  Unless I’ve got a cold , that is not a good thing.  When Trader Joe’s came out with their Pickle Popcorn last year, it was a revelation.  Of course!  PICKLES!  The perfect flavor combination of salt and tang.  I do love them with all my heart, but cucumbers get slimy, and are not portable.  Finally Trader Joe’s Pickle Potato Chips are in stores, and they are pickle perfection in chip form.

Pickle Chips Favorite TJ's Product

The full title of the product is “Somewhat Spicy Dill Flavored Kettle Cooked Potato Chips.”  Nobody is going to remember that – let’s just call them what they are: Pickle Potato Chips.

Trader Joe's snacks

The chips themselves are thick and bubbly – with a significant amount of dill on them so there’s no false advertising.  The best part about them is that they are slightly spicy – it’s a slow burn that doesn’t hit you until you’ve already shoved another chip into your mouth.  By that time it’s too late; even if you can’t handle the heat, you’ve eaten the entire bag.  I will definitely be layering some crunch into my sandwiches by adding this instead of (or maybe in addition to) pickles.

For more of my favorite Trader Joe’s products, check out their Pesto and Quinoa, Gluten-Free Brownies, and Spinach and Kale Greek Yogurt Dip.  Also, here’s the inside scoop on what’s good from a Trader Joe’s employee.  As you may know, the company is notorious for not doing any advertising.  This is not, in any way, a sponsored post – I am just a raging TJ’s fan, as I’m sure most of you are too.

    Nooooooo! You can’t tell me about the wonderful things from Trader Joes! I don’t live near one….my mom says she might send me a Trader Joes care package. I miss TJs so much! So sad! I miss the cheese aisle the most, Mom can’t ship that. Maybe she should include these chips…. 🙂

      I feel your pain – it is difficult when you don’t live near a TJ’s! I hope you get that care package!

    I love how people (and myself TOTALLY included), when talking about Trader Joe’s, can’t help but start listing all the things they/we/me like and love and buy there. 🙂 The Kerrygold butter! The coconut cream! The frozen mango!

    I actually tried this recently. I’m such a sucker for buying their stuff through their samples. One sample and I was hooked. I like these chips for the same reasons you’ve mentioned.
