After a few researches, I discovered that "Terra" is American (see link) and produces exotic vegetable chips as well as normal potato chips. They create "chef-inspired masterful combinations of unique vegetables with a variety of fabulous flavors". Not only are they innovative chips, but they are also healthier, because they contain 50% less fat, 90% less sodium and are very natural ingredient-wise.
Now, thanks to Migros, they are produced under license by Bischofszell (see link) and available all over Switzerland (see the Swiss "Terra" link)!
There are five different varieties:
- Randen chips (limited edition)
- Natural chips
- Greco chips
- Paprika chips
- Wasabi chips
The "Randen Chips" are very pretty and flavor-wise really interesting. In that packet, you can find both normal potato chips and randen (beetroot) chips, thus adding a nice contrasting color to your table (they present well). Those chips are spiced with some sea salt, coarse black pepper and apple vinegar which is very pleasant. Their overall taste is quite rootish and "soily" in a delicate way, sweetish and peppery.
The "Paprika Chips" are like a luxurious version of your usual chips. Their paprika flavor is nicely present and strong, but their overall taste isn't too overpowering, just well-balanced and a little sweet. Spicy and delicious.
Regarding the chips themselves, they look nice, are light, extremely crunchy and incredibly thick in an artisanal way and perfectly seasoned as well salty in a good way (generally, I find that things are not salted enough, but here, it is wonderfully done). They remind me of what I used to call "real" chips as a kid (like bio chips found in health stores in England); they taste natural just like gorgeous homemade chips...
