popchips and big papi's kitchen cook-off with david ortizabout big papi’s kitchen: growing up in the dominican republic, david ortiz was raised on the fresh, flavorful tastes of latin cuisine. in his new home of boston, david remains loyal to his latin roots, and the memories of his native dominican republic. upon a visit to a local hannaford, david sampled the sisters salsa brand and knew, with the taste as fresh and flavorful as the cuisine of his upbringing, that he wanted to create his own fresh salsa line. david went to his marketing team, and upon reaching out, found sisters salsa was as passionate about david ortiz as david was about their product.  a natural relationship began, and with the help of sisters salsa and a team of culinary experts, a new line of big papi’s kitchen was born.

ketchup popchips: a new twist on a canadian classic

ketchup popchips theresa albertwhen i was a kid, we used to go camping and my mom would pack one bag of plain chips, which i hated, they just don’t taste like anything. my sisters and i, ever the explorers, would find the condiments and use them as dips to make the chips tastier. we experimented with vinegar, mustard and ketchup.

i don’t eat chips anymore, too fatty, and i certainly wouldn’t dip them in ketchup! i have a gourmet reputation to uphold.  so imagine how excited i was to discover that my favourite chips, popchips, has created their own version of a canadian delicacy – ketchup flavoured chips! all the taste of sweet tangy ketchup chips, no embarrassing ketchup dipping.

just like all other popchips, ketchup popchips are made with only the highest quality ingredients and have less than half the fat of fried chips making them the  healthier snack option. this tasty new flavour has only 100 calories per single-serving bag and contains no preservatives, trans fats, fake colors or fake flavours.

we did discover one cold winter morning that they go well with  a glass of port by the fireplace.  some camping habits never change.
