At the beginning of January, I happened upon a video you may have seen: a young woman doing pushups for 100 days. She starts out “scrawny,” but gets stronger. I wanted to do that. So I did, and you can too.
MacLeod! You tell Scocca to pay you for another one of those Orioles giveaway reviews you used to do every year. How else will we know when to get our Buck Showalter garden gnomes?
I mean they’re friggin potato chips. Are you expecting some fresh, home-cooked meal in a large bag for $3? For them being what they are- mass produced, bagged, greasy snack chips-I think they’re not too shabby, and the flavors aren't too far off.
I stupidly picked up a bag of the New York, while passing through New York and immediately regretted everything I’ve done with my life. I threw the bag out after one chip.
Since truffles are pretty expensive, I don’t see how there could be a cost effective way of using them in a food as mass produced as mainstream potato chips while also delivering a satisfying eating experience.
I’ve tried all four of these. They’re all at least fine as chip flavors and all except the truffle fries do taste like what the bag says the flavor is. The biscuits and gravy is actually quite good and is a lot like a salt-and-pepper kettle chip in terms of flavor if not in texture.
The Canadian flavours are all good this year, which is a shock considering how disgusting the tzatziki flavour was last year.
I’ve only tasted the Gyro ones, and they had no gyro taste. They tasted like tzatziki sauce. Not great. I like trying new things, but none of this year’s flavors sound all that appealing.
I’d say that Canada’s big leg up on our chips is this...
I enjoyed the gyro chips. It never ceases to amaze me how chips can so accurately capture the flavor of things that are not chips.
They’re still a step above last year’s “flavors” of Capachino and Mango Salsa. The Gyro one I can taste the overwhelming flavoring of cucumber while the Rueben had a saurkraut taste. The Biscuits and Gravy were decent in flavor, while the truffle fries tasted like seasoned chips.
Canada’s version of this is much, much worse.
But that same year, the U.S. got Cappuchino-flavored, so it all balances out.
Despite the lack of meat I really enjoyed the sour kraut/Russian dressing/rye flavor on the Reuben flavor.
Guys, this is very important. I was up in Canada this weekend and they had their own versions of this do us a flavor contest and one was a Butter Chicken flavor, and it was great! The scalloped potatoes and cowboy beans, not so much. But seriously Indian food chips!m I’m thinking any kind of masala flavor base would…
those Reuben Chips are FUCKED !
I tried the truffle fries and the biscuits and gravy. Truffle fries were exactly you like said - a diet version of sour cream and onion, which are my favorite, so I was OK with them.
I lived in Louisiana for 7 years (Baton Rouge) and I do miss these chips (and crawfish, boudin, alligator, fresh oysters, muffaleta, and so on)
What I got was like doubly intense sour cream & onion. Kinds liked it at first but it got old real fast.
