It’s no secret that Trader Joe’s Customers go gaga over their private brand Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend. It’s become a pantry staple in households across the country, practically pushing it to instant “TJ’s Hall of Fame” status back when we introduced it in January of 2017. Now, on the cusp of E.B.T.B.’s 3rd TJ-a-versary, the retailer is elevating the essence of “everything” to even greater heights, with new Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoned Kettle Cooked Potato Chips.
Made with Lady Clair and Dakota Pearl potatoes grown in western Canada, Trader Joe’s supplier fries these Chips in small batches, then kettle-cooks them until they’re ready to be seasoned and cooled. This method—as opposed to the typical “continuous fry” method of chip-making—results in extra-flavorful chips with a harder, crunchier bite. But let’s not pretend the potatoes are the star of this show—as they say, “It’s the seasoning, silly!” We’re talking salt, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper (plus a pinch of sugar, a splash of sesame oil, and additional natural flavors), a.k.a. all that and a bag of chips…literally.
TJ’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoned Kettle Cooked Potato Chips are available for $2.49 per seven-ounce bag.
