Food Should Taste Good - Kimchi


If there is one thing that we can tell you about these chips, it’s that they most definitely have a whole lot of Seoul (see what we did there?)!!

First of all, we might as well get the prerequisite background information out of the way for any of you out there who are unfamiliar with what exactly the Korean staple kimchi actually is.  According to the all encompassing, online knowledge center, we all know and love: kimchi “is a traditional fermented Korean side dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings. It is often described as “spicy” or “sour”.  In traditional preparation Kimchi was often allowed to ferment underground in jars for months at a time. It is Korea’s national dish, and there are hundreds of varieties made with a main vegetable ingredient such as napa cabbage, radish, scallion, or cucumber.”  (

In other words, what the heck is Food Should Taste Good thinking?!?

Well, it is safe to say that these chips are certainly intriguing, extremely unique, and pretty much spot on for flavor execution.  If you like to try new flavors like we do, than you definitely get a kick out of these!  According to the front of the bag, Food Should Taste Good’s kimchi flavor recipe includes: dried cabbage, onion, garlic, and red bell pepper, and believe it or not, we could taste each one of those ingredients – even the earthy, vegetal cabbage!  The chips cover a breadth of flavor profiles, from sweet and spicy, to tangy and salty, and they really have a lot of complexity and depth to them.  The tortilla chips themselves are thick and hearty, with a nutty flavor from the addition of the sesame seeds (which also add another layer of depth).

All that being said, we may appreciate the flavor that is other worldly, but we’re not exactly sold on the combination of tortilla chips, and the kimchi flavor.  The union just doesn’t seem naturally harmonious to our palettes!  But maybe, to each their own!!

In the end, we must definitely recognize Food Should Taste Good’s decision to push the industry’s flavor limits, and continually add unique flavors to their impressive line-up.

As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think.  Agree or disagree, let us know.
