25 Chips to Christmas – 2016….

On the last day of Chips to Christmas our true love gave to us……


Broad Ripple Chip Co. – Sweet & Spicy Potato Chips

Broad Ripple Chips - Sweet & Spicy

Original Review Here

Best chips of the year!!  In fact, some of the best chips of all-time!!!  We only wish that they were available to buy in our neck of the woods.  Hopefully, someone out there sees this and decides to give Broad Ripple distribution nationwide…..but, then again, that’s also what sometimes changes a company, and can lessen the product quality.  So, in this case, we’ll just have to make a quick jaunt down to Indianapolis to try some more of best chips ever!

On the twenty-third day of Chips to Christmas our true love gave to us……


Paqui Tortilla Chips – The One Chip Challenge – Carolina Reaper Madness


Original Review Here

We’re not sure how many of you out there also tried Paqui’s One Chip Challenge; but if you did, then you are well aware that the Carolina Reaper Madness flavored chip is far and away the spiciest chip that we have ever tasted.  It not only talked the talk, but it walked the walk, and even rocked our proverbial mouth sock (if that makes any sense?)!!  Expectations exceeded!

7 Select – Hot Italian Sausage Potato Chips

7 Select - Hot Italian Sausage Potato Chips

If you would have told us last year that this year we would have TWO 7eleven convenience store chips making our ‘best of’ list, we would have told you that you were crazy!  As it turns out, we’re actually crazy……. CRAZY for these chips!!  So crazy in fact, that they have made our Top 5 Meat list.

On the seventeenth day of Chips to Christmas our true love gave to us……


Zapp’s – VooDoo Heat New Orleans Kettle Style Potato Chips


Original Review Here

Zapp’s VooDoo Heat are an addition to their original version of the VooDoo flavored chips.  Well, it is not very often that we can say that a sequel surpasses the original, but in the case of Zapp’s VooDoos – these new Heat ones are simply fantastic!

Spicy Chex Mix and Bugles Snack Mix – Cheddar Hot Buffalo

Chex Mix and Bugles - Cheddar Hot Buffalo

Original Review Here

The only way that this powerhouse combination of two of General Mills greatest savory snacks of all-time could possibly get any better, is if GM decided to make this duo a trio, and also include Gardetto’s classic snack mix.  But hey, we are not complaining this spicy cheddar and hot buffalo mix will do the trick until that day comes!

7 Select – Spicy Guacamole Thin Tortilla Chips

7eleven - Spicy Guacamole Tortilla Chips

Original Review Here

We’re sure that there are some of you out there that say you don’t like, or don’t really even eat, avocado; but we’re also sure that many of you same people enjoy a well made guacamole with your tortilla chips from time to time.  Well, these gas station chips offer up a version that we should all be able to enjoy!

BIJOU-REVIEW: Lay’s Stax – Xtra Flamin’ Hot

Rating: ©©©-1/2 chips  (notable)

lays-stax-extra-flamin-hotApparently, we rather enjoyed Lay’s lip-smacking Flamin’ Hot Potato Crisps when we reviewed their original variation nearly four years ago…

Lay’s has now followed Chester’s lead, and taken their Flamin’ Hots, and XTRA-fied them.

Unfortunately, just like with Cheetos original Flamin’ Hots, the XTRA sequel version falls short of the classic.

That being said, they do still bring a lot of that unmistakable Flamin’ Hot flavoring!

And, they most certainly, without a doubt, bring a lot of XTRA heat on them.

The inner curve side of the crisps are absolutely caked with a thick layer of electric red Flamin’ Hot powder.

The seasoning and the potato crisps do not jive in harmony the way that other Flamin’ Hot snacks have.

In the end, if you like spicy chips, and you are already a fan of Lay’s Stax, then you are certainly going to like these.

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