There’s nothing worse in this world than going to a Memorial Day Weekend BBQ and the chips suck. I mean, seriously. If you’re going to have a BBQ, you have to have a killer selection of great chips. Yes, burgers, hot dogs, ribs, and more, are must haves for a BBQ. Great cocktails, also a must. However, people don’t remember, the chips! You’ve got to have good ones, or everyone will talk about you. Just sayin’. I mean, I wouldn’t talk about you, but others might. So to save you from this fate, I’ve compiled a list of the 5 best chips to serve at your Memorial Day Weekend BBQ.
5 best chips to serve at your Memorial Day Weekend BBQ
I’ve been addicted to Tyrrell’s Chips for a bit of time now. They aren’t easy for me to find in my local stores, but when I find them, I order a boatload of them. They are, by far, the best dang chips I have eaten in years. I never thought any other chip would take out Ruffles as my favorite, but these bad boys have done just that. They’re light, the flavors burst in your mouth, and they just taste like potato. My favorite flavor? Mature Cheddar and & Chives. Best. Chips. EVER. Trust me, have these at your Memorial Day Weekend BBQ, and you’ll be a hero.
I’ve been a fan of Ruffles my entire life. It’s the ONLY potato chip that was ever purchased in our house when I was growing up. Now, let’s be clear. My parents worked 3 jobs at a time throughout the years, just to make ends meat. However, there were TWO brands we never strayed from: Ruffles and Hellmann’s. Mom was very loyal to both of these brands, and honestly, she still is! There’s just something about Ruffles. I mean, Ruffles have ridges! I’m good with original flavor, but I do love Cheddar & Sour Cream, as well as, Sour Cream & Onion. Who doesn’t love Sour Cream & Onion, right?
Herr’s weren’t chips I’d ever had in our house. These were chips I’d experience at friend’s homes, or the home of a relative. Holiday parties, birthday parties, and of course, BBQs, always require some kind of chip and dip situation. It was at other people’s homes I first had Herr’s. It’s a solid chip, and a definite favorite of many party goers. You won’t go wrong with chips like this, and they have the wide ridges, so they can really scoop up that dip! The Horseradish and Cheddar flavor? Just shut up and take my money. Take it.
Deep River Snacks
Deep River Snacks are brand new to me. However, all I can say is this: buy the Aged Cheddar Horseradish, or the Sour Cream & Onion Crinkle Cut, and you’ll understand why these are int he top 5 best chips for your Memorial Day Weekend BBQ. They are kettle-cooked, but they are also Gluten Free, and GMO Free. Fancy, right? Every party has to have choices for all the guests, and these days, there’s always someone with a gluten issue. Plus, so many find GMO free products extremely important, so it’s nice to have these chips as an option.
Food Should Taste Good
Food Should Taste Good has an excellent selection of chips. You’re going to have some people out there who don’t do “white potatoes.” All they eat are sweet potatoes. Understood, and here’s a great option with original flavor, along with a few others. I’m not a huge fan of sweet potato, but for some reason I’m good with these chips. I love the Barbeque flavor. Heck, it goes with the theme, right? Memorial Day Weekend BBQ + Barbeque flavored chips = HAPPY GUESTS
