On a positive note, these are bright and loud bags that are highly visible on the shelves. The logo is prominent and the colors are commanding. However, Louisiana is home to some of America's most innovative, original and flamboyant art. You would have thought Zapp's could have come up with someone that could at least match the flavor names with great packaging designs. .
These were nicely rounded Kettle Cooked Chips that featured a heavier and heartier crunch than regular Chips, but not mushy potato once they passed the lips.
These looked like fairly straight forward Kettle Chips at first, but a deeper dig in the bag revealed that the majority of the contents were not quite as irregularly shaped as many Chips cooked in this fashion. Neither was there a rough and ready landscape of molten lava like bubbles. There were enough, but the cooking process must be slow. The Chips were mostly golden yellow with some browning here and there. There were also strange dots of seasoning around. Usually with this flavor they are healthy dabs of parsley. These were smaller and darker.
These Chips were relatively low in sodium, which enabled the natural flavoring of the peanut oil cooked potato to elevate a creamy backdrop to sweet onion. On another day and by another manufacturer, these could be called Sour Cream & Maui Onion. However, that doesn't lead to our disappointment. These had the would Creole in the flavor title. Just a pinch of paprika or Cajun seasoning as a twist, would have fit Zapp's credo. However, none of that should detract from what was a well balanced and perfectly rounded example of what this particular flavor of the Chips should taste like.
