Rating: ©©-1/4 chips (tolerable)
Overbearing and off-putting abundance of extra smoky hickory flavor that pretty much overwhelms anything and everything else about these chips! No thank you!
Wise Ridgies Potato Chips are larger, wide rippled, crispy chips, but we practically cannot recall them because the bacon (and cheddar) seasoning that coats each of the chips completely stole the show. The abusively salty, and extremely smoky seasoning blend was not good at all. Cheese? What?!? Any supposed presence of cheddar cheese powder was completely covered up by the smoke fog and salt clouds of the “bacon” half of the equation.
We just truly have nothing positive to say about these chips, except that, for one reason or another, the bag actually disappeared surprisingly quickly. Was this because our tasters were just hungry? Or, do our tasters really like completely, unnaturally salty, smoky, bacon flavoring on crispy fried potatoes….?
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
