This post is long overdue. I have to plead for forgiveness due to a couple of crises around the house, and a bad patch of my SLE. A couple of weeks ago, we made a humongous bowl of guacamole and ripped open the Chocolate flavor of Food Should Taste Good chips.
I have to say that as a stand-alone chip, the salt ruins it for me, personally. I have a very low tolerance for salt, however, so others might not feel the same. Once the salt was gone (yeah, I licked it off!) I thought the chips were pretty good. With guacamole on them, they were delicious, by far the best pairing with guacamole I have tried! I also tried them with my Wensleydale and Apricot cheese. The chocolate flavor was overwhelmed. What I'd like to try is Philly cheese with black cherries mashed into it. How could chocolate and cherries and cheese NOT be good? Hmm I should try PB and Nutella on them.
We also tried the Olive chips. Predictably, my husband really liked them, and I didn't. I don't care for olives, as a rule, so that was no surprise. Neither of us cared for this flavor with guacamole, which is probably not surprising. My husband said he thought it might be good with chili con queso, which he hasn't tried yet, and hummus. I might try them again when we do that. One of the few places I like plives is in Middle Eastern cuisine. People who like Olives, my husband assures me, will love these chips.
We still have a number of flavors to try -- Hatch Chili Pepper at the top of my list, Cheddar Cheese next, and of course the regular old Corn. I also still have a bag of the Multigrain to test,.but I want to try these with a variety of cheeses and meat salads. Perhaps my signature Pimiento
