We’re all familiar with that feeling of being bored and hungry at the same time. It’s not always a good thing, because one, nothing good ever comes from sitting around doing nothing, and two, most snacks that beat boredom are just plain unhealthy — or at least the ones that are healthy are either hard to find or a tad too expensive.
Mister Potato plans to change all that. Last Nov. 11, the snacking brand from Malaysia officially landed in the Philippines, and launched their new snack in a purplelicious bonanza at the TriNoma Activity Center. Called the Purple Sweet Potato Crisps, the chips are made of 100 percent natural sweet potatoes, and are free of any artificial ingredients. They’re also trans-fat and gluten-free, so health buffs can rejoice and give in to temptation.
But how do they taste, you ask? They’re a mix of sweet and a little bit salty, with a flavor profile that’s not too strong on anything. They’re a little bit like those sweet corn snacks we’re all fond of, which is to say that it reminds you of childhood — but way healthier, of course. If there ever was a deceiving snack, Mister Potato masks the vegetable aspect in a simply sinful package that’s purely addictive.
