My wife and I decided on a frozen pizza for dinner last night so I had to run to the store on my way home from work.
After picking up the pizza (I ended up buying a fresh one from the deli instead of a frozen one), I remembered a couple other things that we needed and, fighting the pre-Thanksgiving crowd, went through the aisles looking for those items. Figuring I should double check with my wife to make sure I wasn’t forgetting something, I found a somewhat empty aisle and sent her a text.
While waiting for a reply, I noticed something a bit different; Kangaroo Garlic Herb Pita Chips. I was attracted to the $1 price tag on the bag (it was larger than an individual serving bag but slightly smaller than one you would buy if you wanted chips for more than a couple people) but didn’t really intend on buying it. However, my wife I planned on watching a movie that night (after the kids went to bed) and, getting a bit tired of popcorn, I decided to buy a bag after all.
I should have saved my money.
When I brought this home and read the description on the bag, I really thought this would be a product I would like. They were regular chips only they were made out of pita bread. They were baked and looked healthier than many of the other brands we have purchased and I figured my wife and I would both like the garlic herb flavor (I bought her some dip just in case).
However, that just wasn’t the case. The chips may or may not have been healthier (I never took the time to compare them to some of the other chips we had in the house). But, as far as taste goes, they really were a disappointment.
As my wife described it, it was like eating cardboard. Many of the chips were extremely hard, to the point we felt like we were breaking our teeth on them. And, I really couldn’t taste any sort of flavor on the majority of the chips. The few that did had a very light coating that was barely noticeable. In other words, they were very bland.
I have purchased many products from this particular store for $1 or less and found they were high in quality. This is not one of those products and I would not recommend this brand.
