Covered Bridge Chips?

When driving through New Brunswick this summer, we got addicted to their Covered Bridge chips, and I was sure I would be able to find them here. However, the best I could find so far are there tortilla chips....

Does anyone know where I can find the Covered Bridge potato chips? These were the best chips ever!

  1. I've only seen them at a rather odd shop that has closeout deals - Mondiana at the corner of Bélanger and Christophe-Colomb. Bought a package for 99 cents - they were very good. Why don't you write to the company http://www.coveredbridgechips.com/ and ask them about local retailers?

    1. The website has a store locater. Looks to be about 25 locations around town, including Supermarché PA, Tau St-Denis (!), Fromagerie Atwater and Muscat Fruiterie. There's also an online store, so you could order a case if all else fails.

        Yes, I have started to notice them around. Tau and Le vrac du marché (in the hall at Atwater Market) come to mind. Enjoy.

        1. re: carswell

          I've checked the store locater and have gone to about 3/4 of the places on it. None of the store actually carry them - only the Kettle brand chips.

          I have yet to check Atwater market though, so I guess that's my next stop. Thanks!

          1. re: kimberleyblue

            I think i've seen them at the Adonis in Laval... on Cure-Labelle.

            1. re: kimberleyblue

              Are you referring to the ones in burlap bags? Looks like they don't even sell those through their online store...

          2. Winners downtown has Covered Bridge chips in the burlap bag. They're not cheap. I think they're $5 a bag.

              there is a store on sherbrook in westmount I think called Alimentation National and they sell the sweet potato ones...I know I called but never got there...so don't take all the bags pls LOL

              1. re: blondee_47

                I have found them now at both Tau and Le vrac du marché . For anyone else looking to try these, Tau sells a bag for about $4.50. Atwater Market sells the same bag for $2.99.

                Neither place has the sweet potato ones, though, so I'll eventually have to get over to Westmount. Ooh, and I'd love one of the burlap bags! Thanks all.

                1. re: kimberleyblue

                  Are their only sweet potato chips the ones with added brown sugar and cinnamon? I found those far too sweet. I've had organic plain sweet potato chips from another brand, and the slight natural sweetness is very pleasant (like oven-roasted root vegetables) not cloying.

                  1. re: lagatta

                    Winners in Vaudreuil (just off the 40) has them in burlap bags.

                    1. re: eatwell

                      Thanks, but there is no way on earth I could get there.

              2. re: SnackHappy

                Winners at Alexis Nihon at Atwater has them too, in the burlap bag. Sea salt, salt and vinegar and creamy dill were the flavours I could see. $3.99 per bag

                1. re: unlaced

                  Bought some at the Alexis Nihon Winners, they had the flavors that unlaced described.

              3. Two places I know of on the South Shore; one is Fruiterie Val-Mont on Taschereau Boulevard (they may be available in their other branches) it has a good selection of Covered Bridge chips and tortilla; the other one is at Le marché des jardiniers in La Prairie in one of their little shops near the crepe place; small selection.

                  Coop la maison verte (Sherbrooke st. W. in NDG) has just started selling those. From what I remember, I saw, BBQ, salt and vinegar, sea salt, and salt and pepper. Will try some tonight.

                2. Can someone please tell me what's so special about these chips?

                  Sincerely,

                  Never Had Covered Bridge Chips and Curious in Montreal

                    Honestly, I knew nothing about these chips before this thread. I just thought it was funny to see them appear at la Coop today. Having tasted them tonight, they're nothing special. Kettle chips are a lot better to my taste. And anyway, chips are not a big gastronomic pleasure for me. They're just chips.

                  2. Loblaws, in Brossard, of all places, has them - along with a whole pile of other goodies, back near the baked goods section of the store. They had 3 types - sea salt, sea salt with pepper, and smoked BBQ. We just bought the sea salt flavour to try - as far as potato chips go, they're pretty good - they even got hubby's seal of approval.

                    1. After reading all about them here on Chowhound, I saw some today at Valmont (des Érables and Mont-Royal). They were either 2.50 or 2.99 for a bag....seems cheaper than anywhere else, maybe I should check the expiry date :-)

                      They had a lot of different flavours, including barbeque, dill pickle and the sweet potato cinnamon, but I opted for salt and black pepper, which is the true test for a good chip in my opinion. Now I just need to wait for a good excuse to open the bag...

                      1. Confirmed: i saw them this weekend at Winners at Place Vertu in VSL.
