Trader Joe's Smoky Honey Seasoned Kettle Chips
Anyways, I *knew* I shouldn't have bought Trader Joe's Smoky Honey Seasoned Kettle Chips. NO NEED for these in my kitchen. NONE. But...but...I like kettle chips. A lot. "Smoky" and "honey" sounds good. And the packaging is reminiscent enough of one of the last chips I fell in love with it...dangit...the bag is coming home with me.
It's the flavor that's a little disappointing. It's not awful, but the taste seems neither smoky nor honeylicious. Instead, it's like a pretty mild barbeque flavor that's pretty pleasant and certainly not heavyhanded, with a small touch of sweetness presumably from the honey. But smoky? No taste of that thus far. And I like smoky.
Anyways it's like $2 for the bag, and I will have to remind myself it's not a single serving next time I open. If the flavor were stronger or something more to it, it wouldn't be as easy to just keep on eating and eating and eating...that must be what they're going for. Sandy and I liked them alright, as did our kiddos. Nothing too much else to say except let's go with double 3s.
Bottom line: Trader Joe's Smoky Honey Seasoned Kettle Chips: 6 out of 10 Golden Spoons
It's a sign of getting older when we start getting picky about our junk food! I'm the same way...if I'm going to eat chips, they need to be AH-mazing.ReplyDelete
Finished the bag in one sitting…ReplyDelete
I guess I'm the odd man out. I love chips, but I didn't like these at all, to the point of almost tossing out the whole bag after trying them. They tasted like an off-brand BBQ chip to me.ReplyDelete
