Rating: ©©-3/4 chips (tolerable)
And yet, at the same time, we find it a little perplexing that over in the United Emirates there would be Arabic Spiced Potato Chips? Isn’t that like selling chips here in the U.S. as American flavored? And who are these chips really targeted at? We’re guessing that it has to be all of the foreigners who are visiting the United Emirates and wanting to try something familiar, and yet a little exotic or foreign…who knows.
All that being said, we unfortunately did not taste any of the unique seasonings pictured on the front of the bag. No star anise, no cinnamon, or bay leaf. And is that coriander? Yep, none of that. Nutmeg? Nah-uh.
Instead what we tasted was exactly what the ingredient list on back of the bag said we would – tomato powder, paprika, onion, black pepper…. So, yeah, none of those are screaming exotic, or Arabic to us! They are screaming seasoning salt!!
The potato chips themselves are okay. They have some body to them, but with a much softer crunch. Decent potato flavor.
Anyone else out there tried them by chance? Thoughts? As always we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree. Let us know.
