Rating: ©©©-1/2 chips (notable)
When Dakota Style creates two flavors with such similar flavor descriptions – Nice ‘N Spicy and Blaze ‘N Hot – Chip Review assumes that we are going to be tasting similar flavors as well…
Well, that’s not the case here.
Dakota Style’s Nice ‘N Spicy Kettle Chips make us think of one word: American-Chinese-Buffet! OK, that’s three words (you got us), but that doesn’t diminish the fact that these chips instantly triggered thoughts of chowing down on plates full of Chinese buffet food. The chips have a tiny bit of zip to them, but no so much from a chili heat, more along the lines of a vinegary zing that tweaks the tongue. The inclusion of soy is apparent in these chips, combined with some garlic and sugar, and we’re thinking Asian cuisine.
Which makes us really wonder about the flavor naming of these chips? Nice ‘N Spicy? Spicy – not so much. Zingy – yes. Nice? Well, possibly, but we really didn’t spend that much time getting to know them…..
As always we would love to hear what you think. Let us know.
