Rating: ©©©©-1/2 chips (lip-smacking)
It was probably some time, around this time last year, that we told you that if you ever find yourself traveling through southern Wisconsin, you should do yourself a huge favor, and pick up the biggest bag of De-lish-us’ Original Cheese Flavored Potato Chips that you can find; and while you’re at it, one for us too!! To say that we were impressed with these salty, minimalist chips, would be a grave understatement. In fact, they were even tasty enough to rank themselves squarely among the Top 10 chips we tasted in all of 2012!
Well, it just so happens that we found ourselves once again in the great land of cheese known as Wisconsin, and we of course followed our own great advice and picked ourselves up a bag of the Original Cheese flavored potato chips from De-lish-us, but we also grabbed a bag of their Sour Cream and Onion Potato Chips.
Luckily for us, we once again found ourselves in the presence of some great tasting potato chips from De-lish-us!! We stand firm by our declaration that De-lish-us has the best tasting (non-kettle cooked) potato chips we’ve encountered, outside of Old Dutch’s traditional line of potato chips that is. The wonderfully earthy potato flavor is in every crunch of every De-lish-us chip. Rather than even trying to cover up any of the chip’s natural flavors with buckets of seasoning, De-lish-us simply embraces the natural potato-ness, by leaving the skins on, slicing the chips just the right, and only coating them with a minimal dusting of sour cream and onion.
Not only do the De-lish-us potato chips remind us of the Old Dutch potato chips, but the sour cream and onion seasoning blend really does too. Granted they are a little less tangy and creamy, a little less onion-y, a little less salty, and just a little less PERIOD That being said, anytime we are comparing your chip to the best sour cream & onion chips, it should always be considered a compliment.
De-lish-us potato chips bring us back to our childhood, to a simpler time. Their clean and earthy flavors seem old school and familiar, while even their packaging is plain and retro. Despite not growing up with them, each bag of De-lish-us Potato Chips that we have tried so far (and we really hope to try more), has truly seemed like a DE-LIC-IOUS reunion with a long lost friend!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
