Product Review: Herr's Old Bay Potato Chips

This is a pretty straightforward offering from the good folks at Herr's.  Potato chips seasoned with Old Bay seasoning.  Boom.  The challenge for me here is how to describe the flavor of Old Bay to somebody who has never tasted it.

There are a lot of strong flavors going on in each chip.  Vegetable (tomato), citrus, vinegar, and paprika definitely stand out, as well the standard saltiness found in all potato chips.

The first 3 or 4 handfuls tasted really good.  However, after that, the flavoring became so strong that it began to taste unpleasant.  My wife experienced the same thing.  I wound up taking the rest of the bag to work, and my coworkers all said the same thing.  I guess there really can be too much of a good thing.

I have a friend who puts Old Bay seasoning on everything.  If you are that guy, then you need to try these chips.  Otherwise, I recommend you eat these in moderation. 

Rating: 3 out of 5 ghosts.

  1. Yup, 3 chips in and I'm done. I also taste carrot and celery powder in the vegetable flavors.
