What’s a kettle-cooked chip? Merriam-Webster defines it as “a type of potato chip made so as to be thicker and crunchier than the typical potato chip,” writes Melis Amber in this article published by the Daily Meal. There’s really no nutritional difference between the two, and the base ingredients are pretty much the same. Many retailers will advertise their kettle chips as “batch-cooked,” which means the potatoes are cooked in batches rather than the conveyor-belt style used to make regular potato chips. That batch-cook is why kettle chips are crunchier than standard chips.
There’s no denying we love that crunch, and because there are so many flavors and brands out there, Melis Amber has compiled the ultimate guide to kettle chip brands produced and marketed in the U.S.
The guide covers a long list of kettle chip brands including Kettle Brand, Good & Gather, Lay’s, Cape Cod, Siete Family Foods, Utz, Takis, Herr’s, Hal’s New York, Hen of the Woods, Miss Vickie’s, Deep River, Manischewitz, Kroger, Great Value, 365, Trader Joe’s, Raley’s, Sprouts Farmers Market, Old Dutch, Jays, Aplenty, and Uglies.
