I freely admit it. I bought these for one reason only: the Burger King logo. But I’m glad I did. They’re definitely a unique item. The clerk where I bought them said they were similar to ketchup potato chips that the sell up in Canada. I’ve never tried them, but my friend Klaus, who was with me, vouched for the clerk’s statement, confirming that such a thing does exist.
Let’s get to it. It starts off nicely. I open the bag and it truly does smell like ketchup and french fries. They look kind of weird. I guess it is sort of like two-dimensional french fries spattered with a particularly solid ketchup.
The taste is tough to describe. It doesn’t really taste like fries. I guess the closest I can approximate them to is if you were eating ketchup-flavored Sun Chips. It’s really not bad. It’s not going to replace Doritos or Lays as America’s #1 Chip, but they’re pretty good.
The flavor is just a little overwhelming, but not in a completely bad way. I think it must be whatever they use to approximate the taste of vinegar. But, hey, I’m still munching on them, which is much different than the case of Doritos: The Quest.
In summary, these are worth a try. You might like them more than I do, and that’s not to say I don’t like them. I give them a solid 3 stars. Okay. 3.5. The extra half for the BK logo.
