Ballreich’s Potato Chips – Bar-B-Q

This is the third flavor of Ballreich’s potato chips that I’ve tried. The first two, sour cream and onion and cheddar and sour cream were great (with sour cream and onion being my favorite).

Ballreich's Potato Chips - Bar-B-QThe BBQ-flavored chips would be great at a party or family get-together. They’re not in-your-face-BBQy. It’s a very mellow, slightly tangy flavor. Not sweet, and not hot. They wouldn’t offend your grandma or your in-laws like your favorite habanero-flavored chips might.

Like all Ballreich’s chips that I’ve tried, these are thick, tasty, and crunchy. And they are marcelled (the name of a popular wavy hairstyle from the 1920s), making them rigid enough to stand up to even the thickest of dips. They are salted and seasoned just right. Try some!

So, on the Life’s A Tomato ‘Mater Rater scale, I gave these chips:

Texture: Outstanding crunch. Not oily.
Flavor: Great potato flavor with a very light BBQ flavor. I could’ve used more flavoring.
Quality: Decent. Some chips had more seasoning than others as you can see in the picture above.
Appeal: A hefty, thick chip that held up to shipping. Nice, no-thrills packaging that looks kind of old-school.
