Review: Herr's salt & vinegar potato chips
An old classic is still number one
As you all know, I have been on a little quest to find the best salt & vinegar potato chips. I have tried three or four different brands, with Kettle currently my preferred choice.
I decided to pick up a bag of Herr's salt & vinegar to see how they rank. These were the only salt & vinegar chips that I remember being available when I was a child. When I opened the bag, I was immediately hit with that strong vinegar smell – that's a good thing. I initially opened the bag to try a couple for the review and then seal them up and put them away. As you may have already guessed, that did not happen, I was enjoying the strong vinegar flavor with just the right balance of salt with the perfect crispness. After many chips and a semi raw tongue, I had to force myself to put them away before I finished the whole bag.
I must say, I am not a fan of Herr's chips in general, but I am a huge fan of their salt & vinegar ones. There is a reason these chips including the styling of the bag has not changed in 40-plus years – they are perfect the way they are. Herr's has adopted the, "If it's not broke, don't fix it" motto with these chips, and that's a great thing.
