Another week, another potato chip review. This time around with a Korean twist, kimchi chips. If the kimchi crackers I tried before were anything to go on, then these chips were going to be next to tasteless. Going in with low expectations, I opened the box and was pleasantly surprised that I could smell kimchi. There is just no denying that sour, slightly off, yet spicy fragrance. My expectation level just rose a few bars.
Low and behold, the taste was there too. Yes, I could detect a hint of spice, and I could definitely distinguish that fermented flavor. Neither of those tastes were very strong, but they were there and that’s what counts. At least this chip lives up to its name. I was going to leave some for tomorrow, but I ended up finishing the whole thing. Take that as a good sign.
