Kettle Potato Chips with sea salt and jalapenos

When you’re a mom, pleasing everyone in the family can be a full time job, especially when it comes to food! Agreeing on one thing can be a challenge. At dinnertime, Keira, my youngest, would be perfectly happy with spaghetti every night of the week. My husband likes his meat and potatoes. When I ask my oldest, she just shrugs her shoulders and says she’ll eat anything BUT spaghetti.

It’s even harder for my family to agree on snacks. Whether we were going to the beach or the theme parks, I’d end up packing different snacks for every member of the family. Luckily that’s no longer the case because I’ve finally found some awesome snacks that everyone can agree on!

Kettle Brand® Potato Chips

Kettle Brand® Potato Chips Jalapeno and Kettle® Brand Potato Chips Sea Salt & Vinegar have become our new snacks of choice. They’re so full of crunch and flavor and even better, everyone in my family loves them! The jalapeno flavored chips are my fave, with the delicious taste of jalapenos and just the right amount of spiciness. My husband has always loved sea salt and vinegar so it was no surprise that they’d be his favorite. My kids? Well, for once they’re not picky…they love both flavors. 

Kettle Brand® Chips have been around since 1982 and are innovators when it comes to new flavors. They introduced the first Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper Chip and many of their flavors are inspired by real food trends like Korean BBQ Chips and New York Cheddar. Kettle Brand® Potato Chips are also certified gluten free and non-GMO project verified.   

That’s why I always make sure to grab plenty whenever I’m at Walmart. I’m picking up even more these days because Ibotta is offering $1 off two 8.5 oz bags. We have plenty of snacks AND I save money too…it’s a total win/win!

Snacks For Every Occasion

The best part is that now when I’m getting snacks together, I don’t have to pack a different snack for each person. There’s just enough room in the beach bag for a bag of Kettle Brand® Potato Chips. Plus, they weigh next to nothing which is a bonus because we have enough to carry on beach day.

These also make the perfect side for when I surprise my family with a backyard picnic. I mean, Kettle Brand® Potato Chips pretty much go with everything, right?

Snacks are a must have for pool days too. The kids work up an appetite splashing around and I need something to munch on while I’m watching them. I just toss a bag of chips in with the towels and sunscreen and we’re all set. Just don’t tell the girls that I’ve been eating “their” snacks.

Of course, Kettle Brand® Potato Chips are great for when we’re out and about, but they’re our go-to snack at home too. I put out a bowl when we’re cooking out, snuggling up for movie night and even when we battle it out on game nights. 

Charades Ideas For Kids

Printable charades game


My family is a pretty competitive bunch when it comes to games. No matter what we play, we go all in because bragging rights are a big deal in our house! We’re always looking for new games to play and recently my 8 year old, Keira, suggested we play charades. It was her turn to pick our next game and charades is perfect because all ages can play. I even made some printable charades cards so we’d be ready.

Once Keira saw the cards, she was too excited to wait. We started game night early…call it game day instead. It’s summer so we can play games all day if we want!
Who knew charades could be so much fun! I had purposely made the cards easy enough for all ages and it was so cute watching Keira act out the clues! Our cat, on the other hand, we just annoyed that all of our noise was interrupting her nap.

Of course, I also made sure we had plenty of Kettle Brand® Potato Chips handy because you can’t play games without snacks, right?

We had such  a blast that we’re adding charades to our regular lineup and next time we’ll make it a true game night so my husband can play too. I need a rematch anyway…the kids aren’t the only ones who are competitive!

I’m so happy to have finally found a snack that everyone can agree on. Whether it’s the new Kettle® Brand Potato Chips Jalapeno or Kettle Brand® Potato Chips Sea Salt & Vinegar (or both), I don’t hear a peep out of my family…they’re too busy eating! Don’t forget to take advantage of the Ibotta deal so you can save $1 when you buy two 8.5 oz bags at Walmart.
