Chips ahoy

(article, Culinate staff)

OK, so we all love Grist for keeping track of the latest environmental news. But sometimes, you know, you really just need some junk. Healthy junk, if possible. Like hippie potato chips. Which Grist's Victual Reality columnist, Tom Philpott, agreed to take on: a natural potato-chip taste test, using farmhands at Maverick Farms as guinea pigs. The contenders? Ten different potato chips, including three flavors of a British brand called Tyrell's. (What, no Walker's Marmite Crisps?) And the winner? Oregon's very own Kettle Chips.
