Archer Farms White Corn Tortilla Chips

What can be said about plain tortilla chips? Not a whole lot, I guess. But recently, I've been noticing all the subtle differences among regular yellow tortilla chips, blue corn tortilla chips, and these white ones.

The blue ones, like these Archer Farms chips, seem the heartiest (or is it hardiest) of all. Especially when they have flax seeds in them. Then I think yellow falls somewhere in the middle in terms of robustness and flavor. And most delicate of all are these white chips.

Now, I could insert some comical metaphor about how each of the aforementioned varieties of chips parallels a different skin color or race of people, but that would undoubtedly offend someone thoroughly, so I'll listen to my better judgment for once and steer clear of such a folly.

Now back to the food. As I was saying, the white chips are the most like crackers. When you go with white, you're playing it safe. But you're also more likely to get bored. Oh look. Jeez. There I've gone ahead and done what I said I wouldn't do. Why do I digress so incessantly?

Ahem...these chips went very well with the Mango Peach Salsa. They certainly didn't challenge the delicious flavor of the salsa, but they enhanced it slightly with their delicate crunchiness and saltiness. They would also pair up wonderfully with AF's Summer Fruits Salsa.

You can expect the same quality from Archer Farms brand as you would from another national brand name. And these chips are organic. You can't beat an organic snack for $3.

I give these chips 7 out of 10 stars.
