I have to make at least one special trip to Aldi’s cousin, Trader Joe’s, each fall just to see what kinds of fun seasonal treats have popped up on the shelves. My family has some old favorites: apple cider donuts, pumpkin rolls, apple cider, pumpkin cereal bars, harvest blend herbal tea, and more. I also like to look for new fall favorites. This year, I found these cute potato chips shaped like ghosts and bats.
Trader Joe’s Ghosts & Bats Crispy Potato Snacks cost $2.29 for a 5-ounce bag at the time of publication.
These are gluten free, and ingredients are: potato flour, potato starch, expeller pressed vegetable oil (sunflower, safflower, and/or canola), maltodextrin, and salt.
One bag contains about five servings, and a 1-ounce (28 grams) serving of about 30 chips will net you 130 calories, 6 grams of total fat (9% DV), 0.5 grams of saturated fat (3% DV), no cholesterol, 240 mg of sodium (10% DV), 19 grams of total carbohydrates (6% DV), 1 gram of dietary fiber, no added sugars, and less than 1 gram of protein.
These crisps have a thick and sturdy texture similar to Lay’s Stax or Aldi’s Clancy’s Stackerz chips. That helps them to keep their shapes and not fall apart when they get jumbled around in the bag. They have just the right amount of salty flavor and crunch, and these were an instant hit in my house and they didn’t last long. They’re perfect on their own for snacking on, or you could serve them as a conversation piece at a Halloween party, or you could simply indulge in them alongside a sandwich or wrap for lunch.
Trader Joe’s Ghosts & Bats Crispy Potato Snacks are thick potato chips similar to Lay’s Stax. They come in cute bat and ghost shapes. We highly recommend these if you like potato chips.
