PartySugar and I love our Kettle Chips, from Jalapeño to Death Valley Chipotle. So when the company put us up to the Create-a-Chip Challenge, we took it head on, creating flavors like curry ketchup and fully loaded baked potato and uploading them onto the company's online recipe gallery.

Regular corn chips can bore the palate, so when I found these Garden of Eatin' Multigrain Chips ($3.29), I was more than interested in trying them.
