Trader Joe's Sweet Potato Chips

I usually refrain from posting anything Trader Joe's-related, as there seem to be an infinite number of those on these boards, but I just bought a bag of the aforementioned sweet potato chips and oh. my. god. I swear they put a generous serving of crack in each of these bags. I cannot stop eating them. I am tempted to pour liquid soap in the rest of the bag so I won't demolish the whole thing (a la Miranda from Sex and the City with her boxed chocolate cake).

Lord, give me the strength to stop!

  1. Are these the kind with cinnamon/sugar like Terra Chips? If so I need to try them.

      Hi, iluvcookies,

      These are not coated with cinnamon/sugar, but they are naturally sweet (sweet potatoes) so they still have that salty/sweet addictive combo.

        Well they still sound good... gotta see if my local TJ has them on my next trip. And I promise not to bring you any ;)

        thx for the rec!

    2. I LOVE these chips so much I won't even buy them.

      Save the crumbs at the bottom of the bag and use it to coat chicken

        That does sound delicious...however, I'm with you - I cannot allow myself to buy they anymore, so unless someone brings me some sweet potato chip crumbs (which I would still probably inhale before they made it to the chicken), I am out of luck!

          Aren't sweet potatoes good for you? I know they must be fried but it is a better alternative than Lays PC. I guess eating a whole bag of anything is unhealthy.
          Every tuesday I have a meeting right next door to a TJ"s. That's when I stock up. I'll buy these today and see if I can restrain myself.

            Don't kid yourself. If you want the health benefits of sweet potatoes, eat a sweet potato. Regular potatoes are quite healthy, too, but once you fry or put butter/sour cream, suddenly it loses it properties.

      2. I agree - Highly addictive and easy to polish off the whole bag in one sitting!
