Baked Sweet Potato Fries are fantastical, but Utz Sweet Potato Chips? Not so much.
When I engage in mindless chip munching I don’t want it to taste like my dinner. The strong sweet potato flavor makes me feel like I’m not snacking. And I want to snack, but I want to be healthy. So what do I do?
If you’re like me, sweet potato chips will take some getting used to. And so I will. I’ll maybe keep eating them every so often instead of evil, regular chips. But I’m ditching the Utz brand. Immediately.
Who is the Utz employee in charge of adding the “crispy crunchy” to the chip? He either called out sick again, took an unscheduled leave of absence, or fell asleep at the crispy crunchy station. These taste stale. And they’re virtually salt-less. Can I get a little salt?
I guess not.
I’m underwhelmed by Utz’s execution of the chip. They give sweet potatoes everywhere a bad name. Tisk, tisk, tisk.
