Rating: ©©©©-1/4 chips (lip-smacking)
These chip’s eerily remind us of Ruffles Ultimate Jalapeno Ranch. And like those Ruffles, both of these chips smell a little bit like grass when you first take a whiff into the bag.…Why? We’re not quite sure. We don’t think that it’s either of the flavors on their own because we’ve tasted plenty of ranch chips, and we’ve tasted loads of jalapeno chips, but it must be something to do with the combination of the flavors.
In any event the grassy scent does not detract from the tastiness of these chips.
First, we’re hit with that earthy (grassy) fresh peppers flavor? The jalapeno flavor is present, but without much of the heat. The addition of those standard ranch flavors – creamy garlic, potent onions and herbs – makes a wonderful addition to the earthy peppers. The flavor combination works great together.
The flavor works great with these semi-thick, very crunchy kettle cooked potato chips. Some of Dakota Style’s chips we’ve tried in the past were verging on a bit too greasy, but these were just right. Very solid chip from Dakota Style, and definitely one of our favorites!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
