It’s no secret…I’m a bit strange when it comes to food. And the MAIN reason for my strangeness?
It may be strange, but is it GOOD???
A few weeks ago, the man-friend and I conducted an experiment…
Oh no she didn’t!
Oh yes…she DID! 😀
But can you blame me? The entire pack was only TWO DOLLARS!!
And I just HAD to know!
First up, the Sriracha…
They tasted kind of like ketchup, kind of like barbecue sauce, and well, like sriracha! I’m a total spice wimp (if I actually use sriracha on anything, it is like a tiiiiiiiiiny little drop on a plateful of food and even then, sometimes I get heartburn) so these were obviously pretty spicy to me.
They weren’t overkill, but let’s just say I wasn’t objecting when the man-friend said he was taking the other bag home with him! 😉
Next, the Cheesy Garlic Bread…
Or maybe I should say,
Cheesy GARRRRRRRRRR…*hack*phlegm*hack*…LIC Bread?
Seriously, these were like pure garlic powder! After a couple more chips, the flavor sort of mellows out a bit so you can taste a bit of cheesy flavor, but neither of us were really fans.
Now I know most of you wouldn’t even CONSIDER trying this, but I basically grew up eating fried chicken dipped in honey and well, if you think about a certain pair of golden arches and their affinity for sour yet sweet sauces, then you can understand the pairing.
That being said, having both HAD chicken and waffles before, we were a little disappointed in these. I’m not really sure what I was expecting, but this is what I got from it…
It was buttery (and probably the greasiest freakin chip ever!), with a few savory flavors like garlic, rosemary, and maybe a little parsley and then there was a faint hint of maple.
So when it comes down to it, what flavor would I “vote” for?
Well, I can’t really go by taste, but if I were to judge them based on how well they matched up with the authentic flavors, I’d have to go with the sriracha!
And the man-friend says…
“Mmmmmm…oh yeah, yep…mmmmmm”
Oh and can I just say, I NEVER could have conducted this experiment before giving up calorie counting…I would have had to break out the scale and the calculator so I knew exactly what size portion I was having! Gah, it feels SO good to be FREE!
If you could create any chip flavor, what would it be?
I call dibs on the Elvis Burger chip! 😀
