Herr's are based in Pennsylvania. With so many barbecue, Southern influenced, spicy, meaty flavors in their range you get the impression someone from head office had a really nice ranching vacation. This bag has all the right elements: The chequered background for the range of whacky flavors. The bottle of hot sauce. The Chips. The flames. The pepper. Wow. But no, it is all a bit of a mish-mash of ideas. One flavor has a disc jockey, another has a honey bee.
The crunch is standard for a mass produced Ridged chip. The potato has been sliced at just the right thickness to maintain a level of rigidity, while still providing a crispy crunch.
These Chips looked natural, with darker blemishes and even a brown one that had to be discarded. The Ridges were wavy and wide, providing decent support for a bagful of mostly whole Chips. There was some flecky seasoning around, and although they didn't look oily, fingers did get a little messy.
What we have here is the ingredients of a famous hot sauce transferred to a Chip. Whatever the flavor is will have been agreed to by two companies, so we are happy to conclude that they are pretty much on the money when it comes to 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.
