At my local Sprouts Farmers Market Grocery Store they seem to be having a Pumpkin Festival.
Pumpkins and Pumpkin Flavored Foods are forking everywhere!
They’re selling Forking Pumpkin Cider, Pumpkin Ice-Cream, Pumpkin Gelato, Pumpkin BBQ Sauce, Pumpkin Pasta Sauce, Pumpkin Butter, Pumpkin Soup, Pumpkin Cookies, Pumpkin Seed Tortilla Chips and Forking Pumpkin Spice Salsa.
I decided I needed to try the Pumpkin Seed Tortilla Chips and the Pumpkin Spice Salsa both do have pumpkin in the ingredients.
First I taste a Forking Chip.
It’s odd. The texture almost seems wet and I get an over powering taste of lime. Some of the chips also have a burnt taste. I’m not really liking them.
Then I taste the salsa.
At first taste it reminds me of Apple Pie because it’s kind of fruity but also tangy like salsa but with the taste of cloves. Then it finishes with a little heat and ginger.
It’s a little odd but I like the Chips with the salsa but not on their own. They need each other. It’s still odd but not awful. The salsa masks the imperfections of the chips. I guess I like the unusual salsa more than the chips.
My one dog is very fascinated with the chips.
So I offer her a piece of a chip.
She likes them!
So then I offer my other dog a piece of chip. (notice how the chip is left uneaten at the bottom of the photo)
My other dog talks with his eyes and said something like “Are you FORKING NUTS? That isn’t food”.
