7 Select Buffalo Chicken Dip Chips
Brand: 7 Select (7-11)
Style: Buffalo Chicken Dip
Origin: United States
Type: Wavy Potato Chips
Flavor: Mildly Spicy with a definite buffalo wing taste
My partner and I were out doing the very exciting task of shopping for a new vacuum cleaner when they declared they wanted to stop somewhere to grab a quick to-go drink. We were two blocks from a 7-11, so we pulled in and I went inside with them in search of a new snack. Now that I have a small ability to eat snacks, I have to take advantage of it whenever possible!
I've probably mentioned this before, but despite the fact that I don't really eat meat, I love a good meat-flavored chip. (But not Cajun Squirrel...never again!) These were the also the only interesting flavor available at this particular 7-11, so I grabbed this bag of Buffalo Chicken Dip chips. I'm actually not quite sure what buffalo chicken dip is, but I like buffalo sauce, and these chips definitely do that flavor justice. They are mildly spicy, but have that good sweet yet tangy vinegar undercurrent that makes buffalo sauce so good. Somewhere in there, I believe there's a tiny hint of celery and cheese, although I might have made that up based on the picture on the bag putting suggestive thoughts into my brain. Either way, it's good eats.
The only potential downside is that they are definitely mild, so if you are into the kind of snacks that melt your tongue out of your mouth like some kind of disgusting flesh volcano, you might be better off with something else. For comparison sake, my sweetie was eating some Flamin' Hot Funyuns, so I had one of those as I was munching on these buffalo chips. The Funyuns were not spicy on first crunch, but had a ton of heat on the end...the buffalo chips are just a steady spice all the way through. I ate most of the bag all at once and didn't get sweaty or sad, and I'm a spice wiener.
I'm so happy to be back! *all the happy tears*
