I have a terrible weakness for the umami-rich flavour of ripe tomatoes and tomato-based sauces. It’s a major draw card for me in a dish and explains the comfort I find in simple foods like bruschetta, spaghetti bolognese and lasagna as well as tomato sauce. This here is Heinz Tomato Ketchup Chips by Smith’s and uses the crinkle-cut shape of potato chips as a delicious carby vehicle for the tangy-sweet tomato sauce.
These chips have a balanced sweetness without too much acidity or saltiness that remind of Heinz’s tomato ketchup both in smell and taste. If you’re a fan of dipping French fries into Heinz’s tomato ketchup then you’re sure to be a fan of these. After all, what’s not to love when it’s just the potato that’s changed its format into an ultra crispy crinkle cut?
D and I are firm fans of this flavour and we’re sad that it’s a limited edition flavour that only comes around every few years. These contain 20 grams less than the chips in the regular flavours but they’re seriously delicious chips — we could easily finish the bag in one sitting.
This bag of Heinz Tomato Ketchup Chips by Smith’s contained 150 grams. It was produced in Australia and purchased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
