We live here on the Central Coast and our local college basketball team is the Cal Poly Mustangs!  I love their colors – green and gold – which were perfect additions to create a fun get together with family and friends.  At our party, we featured one of our family’s favorite chips – Kettle Brand Potato Chips.  We absolutely love them and let me tell you, we go through a bag very quickly – especially the Sea Salt flavor (that is my favorite)!

We had our 6 kids and some friends and their kids over for a fun a basketball get-together, so we could eat, socialize and watch the Cal Poly Basketball Championship Game. We enjoyed snacking on Kettle Brand Potato Chips, candy, pizza, juice boxes, soda and beer (for the adults only).  A good time was had by all!  We had a variety of the Kettle Brand Potato Chips to snack on, as well as goody bags for our guests to take home!  In each swag bag were 2 bags of Kettle Brand Potato Chips, including a variety of flavors, candy, and a medal for each guest.  I was surprised by how quickly our swag bags went!

The kids especially couldn’t get enough of the Kettle Brand Potato Chips!  They loved the flavor and the crunchiness of the Kettle Brand Potato Chips and had contests with who could crunch the loudest.  I know it’s not teaching them the best manners by letting them do that, but hey, it was fun – and that’s what’s important when it comes to watching games together, right?  The favorite flavors among the kids were Sea Salt and Barbecue.

Kettle Brand Potato Chips were even a favorite of the adults!  My personal favorite is the Sea Salt flavor, although the Barbecue are not far behind.  Some of the adults enjoyed the Jalapeno flavor, while most really enjoyed the Sea Salt and Barbecue flavors!  We started brainstorming about ways we could use the Kettle Brand Potato Chips in a recipe and we came up with some awesome ideas.  How about a baked potato bar with sour cream, cheese, chives, bacon, and crushed Sea Salt Kettle Brand Potato Chips as toppings?  Or fried chicken made with a batter including crushed Kettle Brand Potato Chips?  Or even a potato casserole made with a Kettle Brand Potato Chips topping?  I can’t wait to start exploring the options, and my friends were excited to create some yummy snacks and dishes with their bags of Kettle Brand Potato Chips!

You’ll find great deals on Kettle Brand Potato Chips at your local Walmart, as well a a variety of flavors!  Flavors include Sea Salt, Sea Salt & Vinegar, Backyard Barbecue, Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper, and Jalapeno – just to name a few.  You can even get a coupon for $1.00 off your purchase of a bag of Kettle Brand Potato Chips!  How sweet is that?

What do I love about Kettle Brand Potato Chips?  First, I love the flavor!  Second, I love the crunchiness.  I have to admit that the crunch adds a lot to a really good chip and you can definitely find it with Kettle Brand Potato Chips!  Kettle Brand Potato Chips are made using only the freshest natural ingredients and no other “kettle-style” chip is a Kettle Brand chip.  Plus, did you know that Kettle Brand Potato Chips are the real kettle chips?  They’ve been making great-tasting, all-natural chips since 1982.

Kettle Brand Potato Chips knows that to be the best, you have to be real.  That’s why they are the perfect snack for watching the real talent rise to the top – they’re made simply, with all natural ingredients and perfect potatoes.  It’s a winning combination!  When you open a bag of Kettle Brand Potato Chips, you know you’re getting real chips made with real ingredients by real people.  Kettle gently cooks their potatoes to perfection in the finest oils, and then gently seasons them with the freshest, all-natural ingredients and spices – creating chips with deep, rich flavors and fresh-from-the-field character.
