Rating: ©©©©-3/4 chips (lip-smacking)
These classic Ruffles recently sent Chip Review for a Chip Trip Down Memory Lane, and they seem to do that every time we grab a bag of these tasty chips. In fact, these chips are the very first sour cream and cheddar flavored ones we can ever remember tasting.
If we had to pinpoint what it is that keeps Ruffles Cheddar & Sour Cream chips near the top of Chip Review’s Top 5 list of Cheddar & Sour Cream chips, is their fearless use of a combination of tangy cheeses (not just cheddar, but bleu as well), and the choice not to shy away from the sour half of this flavor equation. The ingredients really shine with these chips and they always bring us back to another time each time we open a bag.
Not only do we feel these are among the best cheddar & sour cream flavored chips of all time, but also the best chips Ruffles have ever put forth. Recently, Ruffles came close to reaching the greatness of their cheddar & sour cream chips with their Ultimate – Jalapeno & Ranch chips, but due to their tremendous, unwavering flavoring, the originals edged out the competition.
