A little while ago we mentioned to you how Dakota Style had recently shipped us a box of chips that included a few of their new “line” of what we were describing as “south of the border” inspired flavors.
Well, also included in the box were these Buffalo Ranch kettle chips, and whether or not they are actually new to Dakota Style, they were certainly new to us.
These are really good chips, and you know what they taste like? Buffalo wing sauce combined with ranch dressing seasoning – who would have thunk it?!
A very respectable, vinegar forward buffalo seasoning; that is not stingy with the cayenne usage. As for the ranch, although not extremely creamy by any means, did hit its mark on more than enough of the ranch prerequisites such as garlic, onion, tangy sour cream, and herbs like dill or chive.
The chips are medium-thickness, with a sturdy (not quite sure we would call them “Industrial Strength”) kettle cooked crunch. We were quite surprised by how well the potato chips worked with the buffalo ranch flavoring. Usually the flavor is reserved, or paired, with tortilla chips.
So, there you have it. Good potato chips, mixed with great seasoning combination. Now the only real question left is are you a hot wings with ranch, or bleu cheese, potato chips sort of person? Honestly, we can’t imagine bleu cheese seasoning working half as well as the ranch seasoning did with these chips!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
