I was so happy and surprised to stumble upon McClure’s potato chips again! I tried (and reviewed) their Dill Pickle flavored chips in New York a couple of years ago. Later, I saw they had a new addition to their chips: Bloody Mary flavor. I knew I won’t be able to try it until I’m back in the States again. A few weeks later, I randomly found them in a health food store in Sydney. Call it luck, call it fate, call it karma? LOL.
I’m the biggest fan of both Marys and pickles, BTW.
These are not the first Bloody Mary-flavored chips in my chip eating career. But I think it’s the first time they do taste like an actual Bloody Mary. And that’s the kind of Mary I like – with some pickle brine in it. The flavor works really well on a kettle-cooked chip. Attempts by other brands tasted more like tomato flavor, which obviously is not a tragedy either, but a ballsy Bloody Mary is not just tomatoes and salt.
Bought in Sydney, Australia (product of the US).
My rating: 9/10.
