Rating: ©-1/2 chips (return to sender)
How can these chips possibly be bad?!?
Plain and simple, because they really are. The only reason they even garner an additional half chip rating is for their respectably crunchy kettle cooked potato chips, their overly generous seasoning level, and for sort of tasting like maple bacon. Beyond that, they are an abomination!
Have you ever heard the saying “too much of a good thing…”? Well, too much of a bad thing, IS EVEN WORSE! Too sticky, fake, maple sweet. Too much unnatural smoke. Too much salty, fatty, fake, whey, bacon flavor! Too much, too much, too much!!
This is a textbook example of the difference between being letdown, and being really turned off! Although, we did not love Kettle Brand’s Maple Bacon flavored potato chips, it was more due to their flavor execution actually tasting like maple bacon than it was the chips not tasting very good. In this case, we simply cannot eat these chips. They make us cringe just thinking about the overload of salt, and sugar, and whey tingling our tongues.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
