For a second there we thought Lay’s has given us a new and unique flavor type – Cream Cheese & Chive. But then we though about it for more than a second and realized that essentially, these are Sour Cream & Onion flavored chips, and there is nothing new or unique about that!
Initial thoughts, yep, these taste PRETTY MUCH like any other sour cream and onion flavored chips that we have tried. And really, what’s the difference between cream cheese and sour cream? Texture? Pretty sure the texture of each in seasoning form is very similar….
Maybe, just maybe, the seasoning provided a ittle extra salt, and tang from the “cheese” component.
Nothing wrong with the seasoning, just nothing special either.
While the kettle cooked potato chips are perfectly edible, it was very apparent that they were missing some fat content. They sort of seemed dry in a way, and lacking the reason we all naturally love fat – a tongue coating, fatty, rich mouth texture.
Due to the lack in fat the chips also seemed sort of…..should we call it brittle? Like they were missing moisture (fatty oil?) that keeps the chips from being overly crispy and crumbly.
All in all, we were more than fine eating with eating these chips, but we won’t be going out of our way to buy them again.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
