Didja know that Katy Perry has her own flavor of PopChips? Apparently, she is not only an investor and creative partner in the exploding company, she has also inspired her own flavor. I was so lucky to have received a free coupon for Katy’s new flavor of PopChips, Katy’s Kettle Corn in the mail last week.
The only downfall was that finding the damn chips turned out to be quite the ordeal! I was originally under the impression that they were only available at Target (where they ended up being sold out when I finally got my butt there) – but I was pleased to find out that they were also at other stores, including Walgreens and Safeway.
I made it over to Walgreens today, and was pleased as punch to find them in full stock of Katy’s chips. Finally!
I must say, these chips are delicious. Even better than I expected, and I had pretty high expectations. (As I do of anything Katy-related! lol) They have texture similar to a tortilla chip, but have an incredibly sweet and salty flavor, very distinctive of kettle corn. They are the perfect balance of salty and sweet.
In Katy’s own words, she had a lot of fun creating this flavor, and it shows!
“PopChips had never ventured into sweet territory before, but I wanted to add my personal touch when creating a flavor,” said Katy. “So I rallied behind the idea of kettle corn. When I snack, I crave a little bit of sweet and a little bit of salt, but I had yet to find a healthier way to satisfy those cravings. When PopChips first approached me to be an ambassador, I thought, ‘Hey, this is my chance to create my snacking desire.’ after a series of intensive taste tests, I’m proud to introduce the best of both worlds, and my dream snack realized – Katy’s Kettle Corn!” (source)
The best part, however, would be the nutritional information. They have half the fat as fried chips – these are definitely chips I can snack on without guilt!
