If you’ve followed any of my potato chip reviews, you’ll notice that I like chips with kick. I do make exceptions though, usually for sweet BBQ or sour cream and onion flavored chips.
These “Dirty” sundried tomato chips also go on my exceptions list. As with the rest of the “Dirty” chip family, they’re kettle cooked and crispy, but not oily. And another thing I really like about them – consistent flavoring. Each chip tastes like the last one. It’s not “mmm good” followed by “mmm bland”.
I had these chips side-by-side with a national brand of sundried kettle chips, and there just wasn’t any comparison. The other chips were dry, overly crunchy, and had a more artificial sundried tomato flavor. I’ll take these “Dirty” chips, thank you very much!
So, on the Life’s A Tomato ‘Mater Rater scale, I gave these chips:
Texture: Outstanding crunch. Not oily.
Flavor: Great potato flavor with an real sundried tomato flavor.
Quality: Great. The chips were evenly seasoned.
Appeal: A hefty, thick, crunchy chip that held up to shipping. Cool bag design.
I loved all of the Dirty Potato chips that I bought and devoured: Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt, Funky Fusion, Jalapeno Heat, Maui Onion, Mesquite BBQ, Sea Salt and Vinegar, Sour Cream and Onion and Sea Salted.
