Rating: ©©-3/4 chips (tolerable)
That’s right, yet another addition to the ever growing SRIRACHA flavored snack family. Is there really any food medium that sriracha can’t, or won’t, attempt to SRIRACHA-IZE?! Based on the yogurt we recently saw at the grocery store, it doesn’t appear so!
We picked up these latest 7 Select’s on a recent stop to (where else) 7-Eleven. As usual, we weren’t necessarily excited to try another sriracha flavored potato chip, but we were drawn to the green cap, and the promise of those familiar flavors.
As for those flavors, well, they were present for the most part, but they were SOOOO subtle.
Sweet? Check. Probably a touch too sweet in our opinion (but then again we typically say that about any sweet chip, don’t we?).
Spicy? Nah, not really. A touch of chili flavor, but not really any heat.
Garlic? Yep. What flavored chip doesn’t include garlic?
So, the major flavor players were there but we just weren’t impressed. Nothing special, nothing bold or commanding.
The kettle chips are wavy, or krinkle cut, and have a really solid crunch, but no potato flavor.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
Discovered at 7-Eleven, Burr Ridge, Illinois
