The onions are coming!!! The onions are coming!!!!
Here at Chip Review we love onions. Raw ones, caramelized ones, pickled ones, red ones, yellow ones, big ones and little ones. But never before have we came across a chip that was simply green onion flavored. We’ve had onion rings and sweet onion chips, and we’ve had French onion chips and many a different type of sour cream and onion chips. Well, there may be a reason whey we haven’t tried many green onion flavored chips to date, as a single flavor on a potato chip, green onion is a wee bit over-powering, and dull.
The chips simply are too pungent. They need something like sour cream to calm them and smooth out the harshness.
That’s not to say that these chips aren’t executed quite well. The standard Better Made thinner cut, lightly crunchy, rustic potato-y chips, that we’ve grown to love, do their thing. Plus, they really do taste like onion and salt. We just don’t think (green) onion on its own should be a flavor….
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
