(BPT) - When fall arrives, a whole new array of taste possibilities opens up for snacking and entertaining. But if you’re tired of the same old pumpkin spice everything, why not try something new? Offer friends and family a bold new chip flavor that brings out the best in seasonal favorites — and is perfect to add to meals and for straight up snacking.

Just in time for colorful leaves and cooler weather, Kettle Brand® is bringing back a fan favorite from last year for a limited time — Kettle Brand Apple Cider Vinegar potato chips. With a vibrant crunch to satisfy any snacker in your family, this innovative take on the classic salt and vinegar chip features a complex flavor that will leave you reaching for more.

Want some creative new ways to enjoy Kettle Brand Apple Cider Vinegar potato chips this fall? Start with these ideas.

1. Pair chips with a crisp cocktail or mocktail

Mix up this fall-themed twist on the popular cocktail for 21+ (or mocktail, without the alcohol) from lifestyle expert Maureen Petrosky, who recommends a crisp and flavorful Sparkling Apple Sangria as a perfect pair for the chip. Aside from highlighting fall’s love affair with apples, this pairing works so well as the bubbles in the sangria help cut the acidity in the chips.

Sparkling Apple Sangria

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 apple, sliced into matchsticks
  • 4 ounces bourbon
  • 3 ounces apple cider
  • 6 ounces Cava (or other dry sparkling wine), chilled
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds

Instructions: In a shaker half filled with ice, add half the apples, add the bourbon, apple cider and chilled Cava. Stir. Pour the sangria into glasses filled with ice and top with remaining apple matchsticks and sprinkle on pomegranate seeds.
