The Herr's heritage is captured in a background image. The discretely sized company name stands out in red. The bag is flavor color coded. The sepia feel adds warmth and glow. An outstanding design. Although the 'Ripple' is sort of added, and the normal design for Herr's Kettle Cooked Chips is just made smaller.
These Rippled Chips appeared to be cut about as thin as Kettle Cooked Chips could be. This left a fair few broken bag buddies. The crunch made for a snappy, crisp bite full. Less like a hard, firm crunchable Kettle Chip and more like a regular Rippled Chip.
The Ridged style did not quite work with the bag of misshapen and broken Chips we surveyed. The texture was like the regular Herr's Ripple Chips rather than their Kettle Cooked Chips. There was however seasoning evident and there was natural looking peel and blemishes visible
The ingredients of a famous hot sauce transferred to a Kettle Cooked Chip. Whatever the flavor is will have been agreed to by the two companies, so we are happy to conclude that they are pretty much appropriate for the flavor description. But are they hot? Yes. Not so much that it would scare people away. Not so feeble that people would question the inclusion of Texas Pete. If you like the little bottle of hot sauce, and you like Potato Chips, you will probably like these.
