Rating: ©©©© chips (lip-smacking)
As soon as we tasted these thoughts of Kettle Brand’s Maple Bacon Potato Chips came flooding in, and come to think of it, ‘Smoky Maple’ would have been a much more appropriate flavor name for their chips as well!
Not sure if Lundberg’s Smoky Maple seasoning was simply better than Kettle Brand’s, or if this seasoning just worked better with the rice chips? The kicker was probably the fact that these chips weren’t trying to proclaim bacon flavor, but rather just let us know that they had been kissed with a hint of smoke. Combine that with a good splash of sweetness, and yep, smoky maple is what we tasted.
Overall, pretty darn tasty chips. They had that usual grainy rice texture and consistency. More body and chew then your typical tortilla chip.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
