Hippie Chips Haight Ashbury Jalapeno

Hippies are the new bad boys.

Take a look outside. The new, up and coming 18-35 bracket isn’t driving greasy motorcycles. Those would release carbon emissions and pollute the earth. They’ve traded those in for a worn pair of Birkenstocks, or if they’re rich, a Prius.

Their hair is no longer greased back, but is flowing, either let down in curling locks or teased into the quintessential dirty dread. And since leather jackets are cruel to animals, you can’t help but notice the unmistakable reek of hemp clothing all over their privileged bodies.Eating these chips, Hippie Chips, I was reminded of Bono and U2 and how “rocker” the hippie lifestyle is now associated. It’s a strange phenomenon, and these chips have jumped on the bandwagon. They’re healthy “potato” chips, and I say potato because I’m pretty sure they’re soy, at least, they look a hell of a lot like soy crisps, and are flavored in “Haight-Ashbury Jalapeno”. I don’t know whether to laugh or smash a guitar made of endangered wood from Tanzania.For $2.00 per 1 oz. bag at the gym’s vending machine, these are about worth the money you’d spend to go see Hannah Montana play Woodstock. There were, and I counted, twelve chips. That’s not to say that they weren’t good, but I’m still reeling from the math here. The flavor is definitely peppery, but it isn’t jalapeno. It’s a poseur of a chip, definitely more of a generic pepper, like the Lay’s Pepper Relish Chips than a clean, kick of a jalapeno. There is spice, though, so it’s hot, but not really hot enough to make you run for your organic latte or Odwalla smoothie.To compare these chips to anything, they’re definitely hippie chips, but as far as flavor goes, they’re about as badass as Milhouse in drag.

  1. So pessimistic, and assuming a lot.
    Not soy…potato/rice blend. Read the label, which shouldn’t be hard….. I think they are delicious.

    I love that flavor, Haight-AshBerry Jalapeno…notice the BERRY not bury…it’s a berry jalapeno, got strawberry, raspberry and blueberry in there, in addition to garlic and onion. not a straight jalapeno, but super delicious. I lick the bottom of the bag when I finish eating the chips.

    Try a little open-mindedness.

    And Hippie Chips promotes bands and artists on the back of the bag as well as giving A PORTION OF SALES TO KEEPING MUSIC PROGRAMS IN SCHOOLS. Not a bad thing, to give back, to try to do something good for others….
