I go through phases where I’m ‘pro-chip’ and other times I’m ‘chip? What’s a chip?’ I generally prefer savory snacks over sweet ones and on this particular occasion I decided to pick up this bag of Boulder Canyon Avocado Oil Canyon Cut potato chips.
Oh, because they mentioned avocado oil and I was intrigued. Would potato chips cooked in avocado oil taste any different than the typical po-chip?
I had no idea but it was on sale so I decided to give it a go.
Taste test: what ingredients are in the Boulder Canyon Avocado Oil Canyon Cut potato chips?
The good news, these Boulder Canyon Avocado Oil Canyon Cut potato chips are made with potatoes, avocado oil, and sea salt. That’s it.

Time to Taste: Boulder Canyon Avocado Oil Canyon Cut potato chips
Open the bag of Boulder Canyon Avocado Oil Canyon Cut potato chips and this is what you get.
The Boulder Canyon Avocado Oil Canyon Cut potato chips look pretty standard with their ripples and grooves. As for taste, they certainly don’t disappoint. They’re crisp and crunchy, cut on the slightly thicker side, with just a touch of salt. I didn’t find them particularly salty or oily. As for the avocado oil, I can’t tell if they added any extra flavour but they certainly had a hint of something special.
Did I like the Boulder Canyon Avocado Oil Canyon Cut potato chips?
They’re a nice alternative especially because they’re non-GMO. For me, that was one of the biggest selling points along with the avocado oil. If I was in my pro-chip mode, I’d probably be a lot more enthusiastic about this post. Honestly, they’re quite good. As a chip, these Boulder Canyon Avocado Oil Canyon Cut potato chips are quite tasty if you’re in the mood for something savory. They’re also thick enough to pair with salsa or a dip without fear that they’ll snap and break off in mid-scoop.
Right now though…if I had to be 100% honest with myself I could really use a giant slice of watermelon or maybe some pineapple. I had a whole whack of pineapple yesterday and it was soo delicious, tart, sweet, and so so juicy. Mm..pineapple, watermelon, maybe a peach…..
