Cello Whisps to the Rescue!

I have written much about my potato love. If there were any way to blame it on living in the potato state, I would. After all, my entire driving experience is spent behind cars with suggestive license plates. Unfortunately, I brought this affection with me from California. It was deeply rooted.

I do allow myself mini servings of potatoes now and then. My main downfall is potato chips. Those . . . I cannot trust myself with. So, I look for crunchy alternatives to stave off my urges.

One noteworthy substitute is called Whisps. The name is not easy to say. I am fine with "Whisp", but "Whisps" becomes a lisp. I have to whisper it, which only makes eating them more alluring. 

Say CHEESE baby, because that is all you will get. Cello Whisps are tasty by themselves or covered with avocado dip or used as croutons on a salad. Erin at My Fling with Food has a recipe called Best Buttermilk Fried Chicken that uses Cello Whisps in place of panko breading. I will surely be recreating her recipe.

In the meantime, I was only able to find these elusive cheese crisps at Costco. Even with the discount, they were not inexpensive, but I will be getting my money's worth.

  1. Idaho is often slow to get the latest and greatest. In the 6.5 years that I have lived here, we added our first and only Trader Joe's. I hear that they might add another in the next 2 years. YAY!

  2. I have been looking for them in Costco and have yet to find them:( Maybe I need to fenture further than Cole Rd to find them.

    1. Hi there... I see that you live close and I might know you. You didn't mention your name. I found them at the Nampa Costco in the Nampa Market Place. They move them around. They were on the healthier chip aisle. Last time I found them on an endcap near the frozen seafood. Ask someone in the store so that you don't have to hunt. Karen


Thanks for weighing in...
