I have heard a lot of talk about the chips here. About how the Japanese have tried to replicate the flavour of chips from things you wouldn’t normally associate chip flavours with. Like “Clam Chowder”. Well, I have already tried Pizza Chips, which were disgusting. Dare I try another foreign flavour of chips? Yes, yes I dare.
HOT DOG CHIPS!!! The company, don tacos, also makes taco chips, but they are not anything to write home about. These hot dog chips were an exciting addition to my grocery cart. I am a big fan of hot dogs, and chips. Could it be? A match made in space? We’ll see…
The chip is a tortilla chip, which I like. Tortilla chips are thicker than your average plain chip, which is better suited for a chip that is supposed to taste like something completely different. The bag of the chip shows a couple of hot dogs complete with condiments. Ketchup AND Mustard?!? Is this seriously what the chip is going to be like? Yes. Yes it was like that. Not only did the chips taste a lot like a hot dog with condiments, but the mustard flavour was more akin to a dijon mustard. It had a bit of a spicy kick to it. This was approaching gourmet hot dog standards.
The spice of the mustard did kind of overpower the rest of the flavours, but I cannot complain. It was a real relief from a lot of the weird food I eat here. I usually eat with an open mind, but my heart is broken by the end of each meal! Hot Dog chips not only delivered, but they exceeded expectations.
The hot dog and ketchup flavours were definitely still present, but I think it would have been too sweet if they overpowered the chip. A chip that is sweet is not a friend of mine. Don Taco knows what they are doing. If they continue to keep up a good track record with unbelievable flavours, they may be the Jones Soda of chips.
RATING: 4.5 out of 5.0.
