Rating: ©©©©-1/2 chips (lip-smacking)
It started out just like any other day for Sweet, and for Sour. Each going about their usual business, checking their emails, grabbing an iced latte, and probably a scone. But, this day was different. Both tastes had, by sheer chance, run out of salt at the same time, and as fate would have it, they were destined to bump into each other at the local grocery store. As they say, the rest is history. That’s the day Sweet and Sour became friends.
Down to business – what the heck are these chips supposed to taste like?!?
Well, let’s just start out by saying that this unique sweet and sour flavor combo is really, really delicious. Apparently, salt, sugar, paprika, garlic, onion, black pepper, tomato, rice flour and yeast extract make for a surprisingly tasty recipe. We can say with utmost certainty that we have never tasted a seasoning blend quite like this one.
Probably the best way that we can describe this seasoning to you would be picture a salt & vinegar chip crossed paths with a ranch flavored chip who had brushed up next to a BBQ flavored chip. In other words, we tasted a lot of garlic, a touch of tomato and onion, a dash of pepper, a subtle splash of sour cream. The chips have a lot going on but all of it works!
To top it off, the seasoning is delivered on some tasty, extra crispy, thinner cut, potato-FUL flavored potato chips. Truly, these are some very well prepared hand cooked crisps. In fact we can even taste those delicious, slightly nutty, slightly “burnt” tasting potato sugars. The potato crisps are certainly smaller than average, which probably just means that they are more natural than others we’ve tried.
We’re really glad that both Sweet and Sour met and became friends! Here’s hoping that we can find a way to get our – chip lovin’ lips – on some more flavors of these Ten Acre Hand Cooked Crisps!!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
