I waited so long and was sooooooooooooo excited to finally get to try these! Once I got to North America a while ago, I was finally able to fulfill my dream. To be completely honest, I expected a bit more from the product. I had the chips twice, but haven’t changed my mind.
The company’s take on the popular sweet & salty concept is a little bit meh. I loved the smokiness, but the sweetness was too strong for my potato chip tastes. They reminded me of Honey BBQ flavor. I prefer the latter, to be honest. I don’t really have that sweet tooth, you know? More bacon and less maple, please! I wonder how other brands succeeded in imitating the flavor of this classic, yet very risky combination…
Overall, it’s still a snack worth both trying and writing about. The famous crunch and thick cut of the Kettle brand never disappoints and is still one the best ones throughout the entire potato chip scene.
Bought and eaten in Honolulu & New York City, USA.
My rating: 7/10.
