Rating: ©©©-1/4 chips (notable)
We found these sweet & tangy corn chips on our adventures to St. Louis this past week….we have to admit, we’re quite pleased with our bounty!
These corn chips from Old Vienna of St. Louis are absolutely caked with seasoning. We can actually feel our lips getting chapped just looking at them.
The flavor of these corn chips is definitely sweet and tangy, and salty, and bbq-y, and sweet, and even a bit spicy. The bag indicates Old Vienna uses real St. Louis BBQ Sauce on these chips. We actually think this flavor tastes a bit more like a sweet and spicy taco seasoning (with lots of onion and garlic) than a bbq sauce, but who knows…..maybe we’re just not familiar with St. Louis bbq?
The corn chips themselves are all sorts of lengths, but definitely on the smaller side of what we normally think of for corn chips. They’re definitely not the crunchiest either. To be honest, we’re indifferent on these. We could take’em or leave’em.
…..did we mention that these are heavily seasoned???
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
