"What's so darned great about them?" you are probably wondering. What's gotten everyone in such a tizzy? Why the rave reviews and the almost cult-like devotion to these chips? It's not just because they taste good. It's because Herr's is one of the few snack makers that bucks that shady practice so many of them engage in now, especially Pringles. You know what I mean-- that cute, little trick of advertising their chips as literally bursting with flavor, when in reality the chips are so lightly dusted that there's barely any flavor to them. Herr's philosophy in terms of chip-to-flavor ratio couldn't be more different. Open any one of their snacks-- especially this one-- and the chips are so covered in powder that it's impossible to not have it cake up on your finger tips without constantly cleaning them. These Heinz ketchup flavored chips are so heavily dusted, in fact, that you'll wind up with red-stained fingers for a few hours after gorging on them. It makes for a messy experience but in the end, getting a moutful of flavor with each bite makes the hassle of cleaning up all worthwhile!
Sure, this excessive powder doesn't exactly make Herr's the healthiest of snack choices, but what snack is? It's all gonna kill us, anyway, so really-- all this really comes down to is choosing our poison. My poison happens to be these chips, and will most likely be yours once you taste them and subsequently become hopelessly addicted like me.
I ordered this and got a 42-bag variety pack of various other chips like BBQ and regular, not any ketchup-flavored ones. Upon closer examination, the description that is on this page just lists "Herr's Potato Chips," in contrast to the other description.
I was able to return the item, but was informed that there are no Herr's Ketchup-Flavored Chips available. (And I really don't get that. If the ketchup-flavored chips are so popular and in such demand, you'd think that Herr's would do something about ramping up their production accordingly, and maybe ramping down some of the other flavors, because these chips are pretty much NEVER available. But apparently I'm talking crazy talk.)
If really want a stronger ketchup flavored taste, I personally recommend get a bottle of Heinz ketchup and dip your ketchup flavored chips into some actual ketchup, like you would with fries.
I have no idea why this product received so many rave reviews. Overall, a very mediocre product at best
Okay first I want to say that the Top Three Ketchup Chip brands I keep reading about are:
Lay's Ketchup Chips - found in Canada but not the USA?
Old Dutch Ketchup Chips - found in Canada
Herr's Heinz Ketchup Potato Chips - found in the USA
I did a taste test of all three and did a three way side by side by side chip taste comparison so I could truly evaluate them fresh in my memory.
I found that as far as taste:
Lay's Ketchup Chips is crispy and tastes the best and contains MSG = Mono Sodium Glutamate.
Old Dutch Ketchup Chips are not as crispy however contain no MSG and seems the healthiest and taste is better than Herr's.
Herr's Heinz Ketchup Chips are not crispy and reminded me of a Ruffle's potato chips texture and contains MSG.
This will make your decision easier on which to choose:
So if you value taste go with Lay's Ketchup Chips.
If you value the healthiest brand with decent taste go with Old Dutch Ketchup Chips.
If you just want the best bang for the buck pricing moderate taste, go with Herr's Heinz Ketchup Chips 42 count - 1 ounce packs.
So before embarking on that costly endeavor yourself, I've done the taste research for you.
Now to each their own taste buds. If you've done your own 3 way taste test comparison leave your own evaluation here for others to read.
