REVIEW: 7 Select – Hot Italian Sausage Potato Chips

Rating: ©©©©-3/4 chips  (lip-smacking)

7 Select - Hot Italian Sausage Potato Chips7 Select has been on a creative flavor roll as of lately!

7 Select’s newest “Certified Rockin’ Flavor:Hot Italian Sausage!  (what the heck is a ‘Certified Rockin’ Flavor’?!?)

Yeah – yeah, we know, HOT ITALIAN SAUSAGE, let the jokes begin….

Okay, that’s probably enough….

Alright, just one more….

Are you finished?  Let’s get down to business here.

Upon ripping the extremely brightly colored potato chip bag open, we were smacked with an intensely strong aroma.  Some of us here at Chip Review looooved the smell, while others thought it was a bit off-putting.  But, one thing all of us could agree on is that it was a distinctly powerful aroma.  What is that scent?  Licorice? Anise??  Oh, it has to be fennel!

After our noses had finally adjusted, we took the leap, reached in, and grabbed a big handful of the Hot Italian Sausage potato chips, and you know what…?  These are fantastic tasting chips!  All at once salty, with smokey-grilled notes evoking thoughts of meat flavors, mingling with a good dash of long-lingering heat, and some classic Italian spices.  Frankly, here in Chicago we usually enjoy our grilled Italian sausages with a good layer of the perfect condiment – hot pickled giardiniera (and sweet peppers, if you’re into that).  In fact, giardiniera could possibly have pushed these 7 Selects into that next level rating category.

Long review short, these are some deliciously impressive convenient store potato chips!  If you happen to find yourself in a 7 eleven sometime soon, we encourage you to take an extra look for these, and grab yourself a bag or five.

As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think.  Agree or disagree, let us know.

  1. When I first bought these, I was 100% certain they were going to be disgusting. I love sausage & peppers, but there’s no way that flavor could be done justice in potato chip form.

    I was shocked at the first bite to find out that they’re actually incredibly delicious, like one-of-the-best-chips-I’ve-ever-had good.

    • @ Charles – thanks for the comment. We totally agree, they are some great chips. Stay tuned, they may even be showing up on our annual best of the year list soon!!
