Ballreich’s Potato Chips – Plain

This is the 6th flavor of Ballreich’s potato chips that I’ve tried. So far, I’ve concentrated on the flavored chips. This time, I’m trying the plain chips.

I’ve said before how much I like Ballreich’s chips themselves. They’re thick. In part, that’s due to the fact that they are marcelled (wavy). They’ll hold up some thick dip punishment. They’re seasoned well. Not overly seasoned. And they still taste like potatoes. Not oil or the bag, or something else. Potatoes.

Ballreich's Potato Chips - PlainThese plain chips are great by themselves. And they really shine with a good dip. Thin or thick dip, they can handle it. Perfect for your next party or get-together.

I have to confess, that I do a weird (to some) thing with plain potato chips sometimes. I dip them in BBQ sauce. Just put a little bit of sauce off to the edge of my plate, and dip the chips in them. I started one day when I had some sauce drip off my BBQ sandwich and I used a chip to sop it up and I thought “wow, that’s great!”. These chips don’t need BBQ sauce for dipping, but if you have some sauce on hand, give it a try!

Texture: Outstanding crunch. Not oily.
Flavor: Great potato flavor. A little salty, but sometimes that’s exactly what you want in a chip. Great for dipping.
Quality: Great. Evenly salted.
Appeal: A hefty, thick chip that held up to shipping. The packaging isn’t anything fancy looking, but it does have a sort of old-school feel to it.
