Another one of my favorite things, potato chips!
During the NYC trip, walking by a corner store I stopped in to see what kind of weird chips they might have, and voila there they were. McClure’s Bloody Mary chips (and spicy pickle, and garlic dill – also purchased). I’ve been hanging on to them since, waiting to get together with my usual “weird potato chip eating” friend LeighAnne but schedules weren’t working out and I couldn’t wait anymore.
So here I am, live blogging! My first!
I wouldn’t say these taste at all like a Bloody Mary, but they are definitely spicy. They are spicier than most spicy chips I’ve ever had. They are definitely tasty, they have a bit of a pickle-y taste to them, since McClure’s is first and foremost a pickle company. There’s a lack of tomato flavor that is the biggest issue holding them back from having a definite Bloody Mary taste. But they are good. I’d buy them again if I saw them, because I’m a sucker for spicy.
Jason bought me several jars of McClure’s Bloody Mary mix but I have yet to try them as since July our work schedules have been super weird and we haven’t had much down time for cocktailing at home. He has several other mixes he’s collected for me to try as well, winter project? Too bad I’m the only one of our friends that really likes Bloody Marys or we could have a taste testing party.
