Today we will have a fun snack of some ‘Peppadew Potato Chips’. This will only be just an appetizer before the main course of ‘Peppadew Peppers. What is a Peppadew pepper? It is a trademarked pepper that originated in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. It looks like a cross between a cherry tomato and a miniature red pepper. This pepper is sweet with a unique peppery flavor. They are quit the buzz in food magazines and the food network. This should be a interesting and fun adventure.


My first duty in a review is to take a look at the ingredient list.  This package has a long list of ingredients with a very troubling omission. Peppadew peppers is no where to be found on this list. Peri-Peri peppers and ‘extractives of paprika’ are the only listed peppers. I am a little taken back on this puzzling fact. We will move on.


This is a familiar taste that we all love. Salty, crisp, and with flavor that has you craving your next bite. This flavor is of tomato with a slight hint of vinegar. There is a very faint pepper component that is pleasurable. This reminds me of a barbecue flavored chip without the smoke. These are great chips and the whole bag was polished off in a matter of seconds.


Was there an omission on the ingredient list? Peppadew peppers are not listed on this bag. This still was a great bag of potato chips. It was a good snack for the main course of Peppadew Peppers which will be reviewed in the near future. Stay tuned.

Greg, I just opened the jar of peppadews for the review. Wow, they are tasty. I just made some pimento cheese with them I am a little puzzled about the chips.

I like stuffing peppadews with cream cheese and throwing them on the smoker, with or without bacon. Good stuff.
