This weekend, the Dayton-born and bred company is releasing a Southwestern Queso cheese curl and a Beer Can Chicken groovy chip. I was unreasonably excited when I got a text Tuesday night with an offer to try the new flavors, just cooked and packaged earlier that day.
Beer Can Chicken:
Kudos, as usual forgetting even flavor distribution on each chip. This is an area that I feel like a lot of potato chip makers are lacking in. I was half-expecting an artificial smoke flavor, but that's not what I got. What I did get was a wonderful savory flavor that had hints of well-seasoned chicken skin. Frankly, I haven't eaten enough actual beer can chicken to tell you if they got the flavor spot on. Regardless, they're delicious and I will absolutely buy them again.
SW queso curls: They really did get the flavor spot on here, but the jalapeno flavor is a bit much for me. I've never been a fan of that particular flavor, but Mr. FvF had no problem inhaling two bags of these. They aren't spicy by any means, but there is a strong pepper flavor. To my knowledge, there are no puffs/curls available in a flavor like this.
Even though the queso curls weren't my personal favorite, sandwiching one between two of the beer can chicken chips was one of the better snack ideas I've had recently.
