Ruffles Loaded Bacon & Cheddar Potato Skins

imageCould you possibly come up with a longer flavor name, Ruffles?  It’s as if the flavor executives just threw  a bunch of words in a hat, then drew three out. Then, a couple of guys didn’t get to draw out of the hat, threw temper tantrums, so they got to go, too.

Picked these up up recently instead of my go-to Cheddar Sour Cream Ruffles.  Guess what? These taste about identical.  They’re quite good, and bursting with cheddar flavor.  I just hate stupid marketing claims like, “loaded” and “skins.”  A) Not loaded… no hint of chives, for example…  actually, I didn’t even detect much bacon flavor. B) Not skins. What does that even mean? They are clearly potato CHIPS. No skin found anywhere in the bag.

They tasted like cheddar and sour cream.  Which is a positive thing.  But next time, I’ll just skip the corporate marketing-speak and go straight to the properly labeled bag of chips.
