I’ve eaten plenty of potato chips that I thought were a little weird, but mango flavored chips? Really? That’s not a little weird. That’s a lot weird. I love mango, but I just couldn’t imagine it as a potato chip.
The first bite had a big hit of mango. Artificial mango, but mango nonetheless. It didn’t clash with the chips though. I guess potatoes are like rice or pasta. If you add something spicy, it will be spicy, but if you add something sweet, you guessed it, it will taste sweet.
A few bites later, however, the strong taste of mango had mellowed down significantly. Unlike some other chips, the taste was still there though as an underlying flavor.
