Trader Joe's, Pumpkin Tortilla Chips, review, price, calories, nutritionNovember 5, 2017

Almost burnt pumpkin pie crust, that’s what these taste like.  You know, no matter what we do, some part of that pumpkin pie crust is going to be burnt.  Now I’m not talking about the stuff we buy from the store.  That never seems to have burnt edges.  I’m talking about the stuff that comes out of our oven.  Whether it be a store-bought frozen pie cooked at home or a from-scratch homemade pie, once it gets in our oven there’s some part of that crust that’s going to be burnt.  Wrap the edges with foil or stick a pin in a voodoo doll, some part of that crust is going to get burned.  The oven makers must program that into their ovens.  There’s no avoiding it.

Trader Joe's, Pumpkin Tortilla Chips, review, price, calories, nutritionThese chips don’t taste like the absolutely burnt portions of crust, but like the almost burnt pieces next to the very burnt stuff.  More specifically, it’s the parts of the crust where the filling overflows onto the edges.  You know what those are.  In fact, those pieces of crust are actually the pieces I break off and eat first.  They sort of build anticipation for the rest of the pie with the pumpkin filling covered with whipped cream.  Hmm,  sounds like I know what I’m having for dessert tonight.

But enough about pumpkin pie.  The first ingredient on the label of these chips is corn.  So these are mostly corn tortilla chips with pumpkin puree used to add some pumpkin flavor. The back of the bag suggests these will hold up to any salsa.  I have no reason to doubt that since they are very stiff chips.  But it’s the taste of most salsas I question.  It seems to me that what’s needed is a pumpkin pie dip/salsa to make these complete.

Price   $1.99 – 7 ounce bag  Calories  140/ounce (28g) (about 8 chips)
