Mostly good, but some bags were "off"....
on November 15, 2012
I absolutely love Popchips, but a) they're fairly expensive in the store, and b) they're so good I tend to eat the entire bag in one sitting (you know you've done it too) The solution to both of these problems seemed to be buying this box - they're both cheap AND in nice single-serving bags that are big enough to be satisfying but small enough to be light in calories.
If you've eaten Popchips, you know what to expect. They're delicious and addictive. But so far I've had two completely inedible bags (i'm about halfway through the box) - a bag of Barbecue flavor had an absolutely sour, almost alcoholic, smell and taste. I had to throw it away. A bag of Thai sweet chili tasted and smelled horribly fishy/shrimpy. It was traumatizingly bad, and I had to throw that bag away as well. Neither bag was opened/torn, and I've never had a bad bag of Popchips from the store. I've tried both of those flavors again in other bags in this box and they were fine. But 2 bad bags out of 12 so far isn't a very good ratio. Hopefully Popchips will get over these quality control issues because I do love eating them!
