Another year, and another new notch in our belts here at Chip Review!
It’s that time of year again when we just need to say that it has been a true pleasure sharing our thoughts with all of you as we chomped our way through hundreds of bags. Thanks to all of you who follow us each and every day. We appreciate it, and we wouldn’t be here without each and everyone of you!! Also, a very special thanks to those snack companies who graciously provided their products for us to review. It’s a tough job, but someone has got to do it.
Stay tuned for new reviews beginning in 2016, but until then please enjoy as we count down our 25 most favorite salty (and sweet, and spicy) snacks of the year. That’s right, one snack everyday until Santa delivers next year’s bounty! This year is far and away our most uniquely diverse list of snacks yet!! Who would have thought one year ago that 2015’s Top 25 list would include: not only one, but two rolled tortilla/taquito-style snacks, and not one, but two waffle/criss-cut potato chips. As well as chips, sorry we mean crisps, from across the pond, and more bags of popcorn than we can count with one hand!! Get ready for the wild ride!
