But Whole Foods apparently wants me to spend even more money in their market, because they have just released three limited-edition sandwich-inspired chips: Cubano chips, Italian hoagie chips and pastrami on rye chips. That’s right — pastrami on rye flavor packed into a tiny, salty snack.
I was skeptical, as any normal person would be. But the chips are highly addictive (or more addictive than just plain ol’ potato chips, which are, let’s be honest, basically a drug) and they really do impart a pastrami flavor. Slightly smoky, a little spicy, and an absolute dream for any Jewish deli lover.
As my fellow deli lover and friend Danielle Feinberg shared via excited text message: “I intended to make fun of this nonsense — the bags say “Limited Edition” [eye roll] — but it turns out these may, in fact, be flavors you never knew you craved.” I couldn’t have said it better myself. But don’t wait, because they are, in fact, limited edition, which means they won’t be around for noshing forever.
