Ever since we tasted Popchips lip-smacking Potato Ridges earlier this year we have been excited to try another flavor from this same “new” style of Ridges Popchips. Well, finally that time has come, and the newest flavor offering is Chili Cheese.
First of all, the chili cheese flavor is not as tasty as Popchips’ cheddar & sour cream flavor.
Second of all, they are still very crunchable.
There may not be anything extraordinary about them – they don’t taste like some extra funky or tangy cheese, and they don’t use some especially unique chip flavor chili seasoning like Ancho, or Aleppo – but, overall, they are exactly what you would think, or in the end hope, they would taste like…..
Delivering an ever so slightly spicy chili flavor, with a good dashing of salty cheese powder.
And maybe a touch heavy handed with the chili powder…but then again, Popchips is making sure that there is no denying what we are tasting.
The seasoning mingles pretty well with Popchips greatest chip creation – their ridged style of potato chips.
You know what, maybe this seasoning would pair even better with some ridged corn tortilla version of PopChips that have not yet been created – but they should be!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
