What a great idea: Blue chips!

Hello my dear friends!!

Today I share another discovery from our last trip. Maybe you’ve seen it before, but we had not and found it pretty cool and fun!

¡Blue chips come, incredibly, from blue potatoes! The blue is not due to any artificial dye but actually due to the natural blue pigment in the potatoes it comes from. The taste is almost identical to regular chips, even though the taste is a bit deeper and the texture a bit more dense, as if it had more fiber.

They say also, that the blue pigment is also a natural antioxidant, which makes it even better!

Next time you travel, if you do it through Jet Blue (it’s their “official snack”) remember to ask for “blue chips” I think you’ll enjoy it as much as we did!

Don’t forget to subscribe and continue enjoying with el fogoncito!
