Kettle’s Iconic Honey Baked Ham Chips Are Back on Supermarket Shelves

They're finally back.

Last night while scrolling through endless posts on Instagram I found Sydney photographer Alana Dimou mention that Kettle’s Honey Baked Ham chips were back on the shelves at the big supermarkets. This was a complete shock to me. Honey Baked Ham chips are back? I didn’t know they left the shelves in the first place.

On investigation, there doesn’t seem to be much fanfare for their return, or really for their demise. A current U.S-based petition on to bring back the Honey Baked Ham chips currently has 456 signatures with the aim of getting 500, so it appears Australia hasn’t been the only country lacking in this sweet, meaty chip combination. That, and an 8-year-old Facebook post to Coles telling them to bring the chips back that gets revived by a comment every now and then.

The new bag design states that they are a ‘special edition’, and also says ‘Return of a Favourite’. It’s good to have them back.

Honey Baked Ham Kettle Chips are available now at Woolworths for $5 a bag.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
