Product Review: Herr's Classic American Hot Dog Chips
The good folks at Herr's have done it again! Just in time for the 4th of July comes Classic American Hot Dog potato chips. I can feel the tension in the air, so I'll cut right to the chase: Do they really taste like hot dogs?
Yes. Yes they do. I don't know how they did it, but there is a smokey, meaty-garlic taste, like a hot dog, followed by the flavors of ketchup and mustard on the finish.
Ok, so they do taste like hot dogs. But, having said that, do they actually taste good?
Again, yes. Yes they do. I really like them. And apparently I'm not alone in this. I have a friend who is quite a well-known hot dog enthusiast, so I went back to the store to buy him a bag for his birthday. To my chagrin, they had completely sold out in a matter of a few days. Doh! I have not seen them since, either.
Bottom line: I really liked the flavor. If you come across them, I recommend you pounce on that bag like a ravening wolf. A wolf draped in an American flag. These colors don't run baby! Aw-roooooooh! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!
