BIJOU-REVIEW: Herr’s – Peppered Bacon Potato Chips

Rating: ©©©©-1/4 chips  (lip-smacking)

Herr's - Peppered BaconWhen we snagged these chips from our local Walmart store we thought that they must be brand new!!  Turns out, Taquitos.net had reviewed them months back.

Seems like no matter how many times we try another poorly executed bacon flavored snack, we still get excited for the next one!!

Initial thought upon opening the bag was that these chips have a very potent smoky aroma.  Thoughts of bacon?  A little bit.

Taquitos.net wasn’t kidding when they mentioned that these chips are covered in dark blotches.  Are these old potatoes?  Stained potatoes?  Maybe it is just the super finely ground black pepper not distributed evenly?!?

Standard Herr’s extra wide rippled larger potato chips.  Good crisp potato chips.
These are pretty tasty chips, but calling them peppered bacon may be a stretch!  Only a very faint, fine grind, black pepper dusting, combined with a semi-faint smokey bacon flavor.  Neither flavor is very commanding, but the combination of the two, plus whatever other ingredients they’ve got going on, forms to create one delicious flavor!
