Rating: ©©-3/4 chips (tolerable)
Surprise!! Another meat flavored potato chip that doesn’t actually taste like meat! Which more often than not seems to be the case. And yet, that is not to say that that meat flavored chips are bad, because we would be more than satisfied to crunch on any of our Top 5 Meat Flavored Chips anytime we happen to come across them.
The Steak Lover’s combo is extra sugary, extra smoky, and extra-extra salty. It is not extra steak-y. In fact, the “meaty” presence really isn’t there, other than another heavy dash of a slightly umami whey powder. The chips are certainly not shy on the seasoning. The salty, onion, smoky mixture is combined with a splash of some unexpected creamy, cheese powder to form a sort of cheeseburger flavor?! Maybe these chips should have been called Burger Lover’s??
The potato chips are medium thick, with an even ripple throughout. Their texture is light and crunchy. We don’t love these chips by any means. They are not lacking in flavor, but in the end they are really just an exaggerated version of a failed meat flavored potato chip attempt.
If you feel differently, make sure to let us know at our meat flavored chips poll.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
