A couple days ago, my wife was at the grocery store picking up some ingredients for a dessert she was making for my daughter’s 1st grade class. As is usually the case, she went when she was hungry and, as a result, ended up buying more than she went after.
One of her purchases included a bag of Baked Lay’s Parmesan & Tuscan Herb potato chips. She said she picked them up so she could snack on them in between her various stops (she apparently needed to go to more than one store) both because she found them on sale and because they looked really good.
When I first saw this product, I honestly didn’t think I was going to like it. From the description, it sounded like a chip that would be a bit too spicy for me. Not helping my opinion of the chips was my daughter telling me she had tried them and didn’t like them (she usually likes the same types of chips and snacks as me).
However, at my wife’s urging, I did give the chips a try and I have to say I was very impressed with them.
Like I said before, I expected these chips to be too spicy. However, that wasn’t the case. They were stronger than your average chip. But, it was more of a bold flavor than a spicy flavor. The parmesan really stood out when I bit into the first chip and the extra herbs gave the chips a bit of a kick that took a little getting used to but definitely made them unique.
As with most varieties of Baked Lay’s chips, I also appreciated the fact the chips were both extra crunchy and didn’t have the same greasy feel to them as so many other brands we have purchased. I wouldn’t classify them as being healthy for me but they were likely healthier than many other brands.
I should mention that my opinion of the chips was not shared by my wife. She said she thought the chips were a bit too strong. In fact, the only reason she offered me one was she thought I would try it and end up having the same opinion of it as her. So, as is the case with many things, your opinion of these might differ from mine based on your actual taste preferences.
However, as far as I’m concerned, this is a product I would buy again.
