I cannot tell you how freaking excited I was to step into Caron’s Corner today, my local grocery store, and see these. For years, I’ve salivated over the strange and discontinued flavors of potato chips the wonderful Herr company puts out, and finally, there they were.
I grabbed a bag of the pizza chips as well as the baby back rib chips, which will be reviewed soon, and set home.
It was truly the perfect breakfast, in my opinion. A bowl of chips in each hand. They were wide, curly chips with a wide ripple to them, no skinny minnie ridgies for these chips. The chips themselves were thick, too, with that nice Herr’s potato smell.
Whoof. Oregano city here. The chips definitely have a pizza spice to them. They really smell like oregano and other assorted spices. They’re a bright orange from a cheese powder, which is interesting. These are good chips. They’re cheesy like a pizza. They’re spiced like a pizza. But there’s just no tomato like a pizza? Why is this? Pizza is supposed to have cheese. And Herr’s makes such a tasty and delicious ketchup potato chip, with a really good and authentic taste. I guess if they’d combined them, it would have been overload. I don’t know.
It was a good flavor, but I just got bored too quickly with these. And the oregano was overpowering. The bag was misleading, with a nice slice of gooey pizza. Oh well.
