Popchips – Thai Sweet Chili Potato
Rating: ©©©©-1/2 chips (lip-smacking)
We love when we stumble across some chips that from the very moment they cross our lips we know that we’ve found something special!
When Popchips first hit the market, we weren’t quite sure what we were dealing with. “Think popped! Never fried. never baked.” So, this brand had simply popped their chips into existence for us. They placed the potato into the pop-a-later, and voila! A popped chip. Chip Review can appreciate what Popchips is trying to do with their product, and in comparison to a lot of healthier chips on the market, Popchips are pretty darn good tasting.
Popchips Thai Sweet Chili chips, are really fantastic, and technically they aren’t even the first popped thai chips that we’ve reviewed (but they are certainly the best!). The chips are all at once complex, and authentic, and layered with flavor. Their unique, and potent, combination of spices coats each chip with fragrant ginger, and herbaceous kaffir lime (you don’t see those two flavors used on chips very often). Combine those flavors with some salt, chile heat, and a bunch of sweet, and your tongue is doing a dance in no time! These chips are so tasty that they even slightly remind us of Kettle Brands greatest Thai chips ever!
Popchips light potato chips made a perfect vehicle for delivering this flavor explosion into our mouths. We can say with utmost certainty that these are the best Popchips, and the best popped chips, we’ve ever tasted!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.

Herr's - Fire Roasted Sweet Corn Potato Chips
Rating: © chips (return to sender)
Nope, your eyes aren't fooling you, these chips are in fact corn flavored potato chips. Unique flavor combination? Yes. First of its kind? We believe so. In the end, was this a good idea, or at least executed successfully? Most certainly not! Chip Review had to dig deep into our archives to see if we've ever had another chip as unappetizing as these were to our palates.
