Rating: ©©©-3/4 chips (notable)
At first we sort of scoffed at the flavor name of these chips – Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders?! Really, is the sliders aspect of that name necessary? In essence the chip flavor would be the same regardless of what size the burger you are comparing it it is – so by simply calling these Bacon Cheeseburger flavored would have sufficed! But then we realized that this line of Old Dutch Ripples were supposed to represent “Appetizers On The Go,” and in that case including Sliders as a part of the flavor name made a lot more sense.
The bacon flavor aspect really just consisted of a splash of some smoke, otherwise we did not get any rich porky fat flavor.
And as for the burger portion, no beef to be found here either! Basically just salt combined with whey seems to be the representative combination for meat these days.
And although both mustard and tomato appear to be non-existent among the ingredients list, their presence or flavor is surely recognizable and quite prominent. One taster went so far as to call the chips ketchup and mustard chips (which isn’t a bad idea for a new flavor!!).
These are not bad chips in any way, in fact they are pretty easy to chomp on, but they were definitely lacking in any real definitive embracing or representation of the bacon cheeseburger slider….
