Late last week, my wife decided to bring home subs for dinner and, while she was picking them up, bought herself a bag of chips to go with her meal; Monterey Jack and Sun Dried Tomato chips from the brand Sun Chips.
When I saw these, I honestly wasn’t really interested in them. She seemed to like them. But, from the description, I didn’t think it would be something I would like. However, when she was nice enough to offer me one, I did decide to try them. And, I discovered they were much better than I expected them to be.
Would I purchase this particular chip over my regular brands? I don’t think I would. But, if I were handed a bag of these in the future, I certainly wouldn’t refuse them. In fact, I ended up swiping a few more chips from her.
First of all, even though I don’t purchase them that often, I have always liked Sun Chips. The reason for this is, even though I don’t like every single variety they offer, I do love the fact the chips are always crisp and never leave a greasy feeling on my fingers like so many other brands do. And, as far as this variety was concerned, I didn’t have anything different to say about them when it came to those things.
What really impressed me though was the flavor. I’m not sure why, but when I read the description on the bag; I was expecting them to be a bit spicier; like a barbecue chip. That wasn’t the case. I could taste the cheese on them, and that alone was worth it because it was something significantly different from the nacho chips you usually find at stores. And, while I really couldn’t taste the tomatoes all that much, I do think they added a bit to the flavor as well.
The chips were also very filling. I only swiped about three from her bag but, if I had taken a couple more, I probably wouldn’t have been able to finish my sub. It’s definitely something I will keep in mind the next time I’m shopping for something to keep in my desk at work as a snack between lunch (which I take at 11 a.m.) and dinner (which I usually don’t get to eat until 7 p.m.).
If you have an opportunity to try these chips, I would recommend it.
