Set to introduce their take on a classic potato chip with a completely new twist, Cobs’ range of Hip Chips are made from corn, potato and rice, and unlike most chips, are made without using vegetable oil.
“Many traditional commercial chips are cooked in vegetable oil, which masks the flavour of the chip and can create an oily texture. Cobs Hip Chips use hi-oleic sunflower oil and heat expansion to create not only a more delicious but healthier chip than most current commercial offerings,” says Cobs co-founder, Ravit Walys.
The new range of Hip Chips pack an intense flavour, which is not masked by the oil.
“At Cobs, we’re known for producing healthy, delicious popcorn, but we also wanted to show the world what else we could do with corn. It’s such a versatile ingredient, so we wanted to create a chip range that was made from corn and simply bursting with flavour. The process of heat expansion and cooking in hi-oleic sunflower oil results in a snack which is gluten free, lighter and crisper than many chips, and absolutely delicious” says Ravit.
With a light but crunchy texture, our Hip Chips provide the satisfying crunch of a chip, without that feeling of regret that sometimes comes with a snacking indulgence. Hip Chips are simply not like regular chips – they’re light, healthy, but offer an absolute taste explosion!
The Cobs Hip Chips range will include three delicious flavour combinations:
Smokey Chipotle And Beetroot
This delicious flavour has the smokey, spicy taste of chipotle, combined with the earthy, sweet taste of beetroot for an American style BBQ combination!
Tomato, Cheese And Olive
With the tang of tomato and olive, mixed with the richness of cheese, this flavour will make you feel as if your sailing away on the Mediterranean!
Sweet Chili And Sour Cream
The creaminess of sour cream combined with the sweetness of chilli, and just a hint of spice, will leave your tastebuds tingling!
With 100% Australian whole grain corn, popped to perfection with the goodness of pure sunflower oil and seasoned with no artificial flavours, Hip Chips are another winning, healthy snack from the team at Cobs. Perfect as a 3pm pick up, or guilt-free snack option, Hip Chips are making chips hip again.
Cobs’ Hip Chips are available in a 90g size, are gluten free and have no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives. Priced at $3.00 (RRP), this new range is available from independent grocers and specialty retailers.
