I bought The New Yorker chips because of the packaging – yes, I love New York in a stupid, touristy way. I guess I kinda liked the price too… Oh, by the way, the chips weren’t even made in New York. No, not in China either. In fact, they were made in Pennsylvania – the home of Herr’s (I think). Thin, a bit greasy, with an OK amount of salt. In short, it’s just another bag of potato chips. No surprises, no disappointments. Nothing good or bad can be said. Probably most of you wouldn’t spot a difference between them and regular Herr’s with salt. Many wouldn’t tell the difference between them and Classic Lay’s or ______ (fill in the blank).
Bought and eaten in New York City, New York.
My rating: 6/10.
*I’m not so bad, actually.
Herr’s is not the first potato chip brand to slap some Heinz Tomato Ketchup on their chips. And, to be honest, I was at first a little skeptical as to how well the combination will work, but it turned out to be perfectly balanced. Salty, sweet, and savory – just a nice ketchup flavor. That’s on the pro side.
On the con side, even though the seasoning is great, the potatoes feel kinda… ummmm… cheap. Do you know what I mean? It’s the sort of food that makes you feel shitty after you eat. Perfect for stoners.
Bought in El Lay, CA.
My rating: 6.5/10.
