BIJOU-REVIEW: Nick’s – Hot Potato Chips

Rating: ©©©-3/4 chips  (notable)

Nick's - Hot Potato ChipsYou know, we were expecting a bit more out of these potato chips, after having tried Nick’s other hot flavored chips.

Not that these are bad in any way, it’s just that they are pretty standard hot potato chips, and certainly not as fantastic as Nick’s other hot flavored chips.

The red seasoning uses a classic combination of paprika, chil, and a touch of smoke.  Not all too different than a BBQ seasoning.

The flavoring mingles and compliment the potato chips very well.  Not exactly a complex flavor playground.  More of a one note, very savory, slightly spicy seasoning blend.

Nick’s potato chips are large in size, with a thin and crispy body.  They more than do the trick.

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

Nick’s – Flamin’ Hot Sauce Crunchy Cheese Curls

Nick's - Flamin' Hot Sauce Crunchy Cheese Curls

Original Review Here

How many of you out there remember the days before there were any hot cheese curl-puffs on the market?  That’s right, for those of you who don’t remember, there was actually a time where you couldn’t find Flamin’ Hot Cheetos at every convenience store, and in every vending machine; let alone any other brand of spicy cheese curls.  Well, luckily for all of us, those days will likely never exist again! 

P.S. – Nick’s Flamin’ Hot Sauce Crunchy Cheese Curls are among the best of those! 

BIJOU-REVIEW: Nick’s – Honey BBQ Potato Chips

Rating: ©©©-3/4 chips  (notable)

Nick's - Honey BBQEvery great city has a great potato chip company.  In the case of Detroit, they have been graced with two – Better Made and Nick’s. We sure hope that Motor City knows just how good they’ve got it!!

We have reviewed more than a handful of Nick’s different chips over the past year or so, and for the most part, we have been quite impressed with what we have tried; especially with the spicier flavored snacks!

As for these Honey BBQ chips, well, they are pretty good.  If this flavor was a BBQ sauce that someone gave us for our meat, well then – NO WAY – much, much, much too sweet!  But melding the honey bbq seasoning with some tasty, thinner cut, potato-y potato chips works wonderfully.  A decent presence of smoke, and just enough of the prerequisite savory notes save these chips from going to the sticky-sweet dark side.

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