Are Wilde Brand BBQ Chicken Chips any good?
As much as I wanted to love this product I have to say – no. I couldn’t manage more than a single chip personally, neither could a friend.
When I first spied these advertised in a Whole Foods mailer, I have to be honest, I thought a whole brave new world was unfurling before me. Aimed at those on a Keto diet presumably, the chips are ultra low carb – a marriage of chicken, cassava root and tapioca flour. The product comes in a number of flavors, all of which Whole Foods seem to stock.
On a recent shopping trip, I spotted the bright and bold packaging and remembering the ad, picked this up. I was eager to revolutionize my snacking world.
The chips are much thinner than a regular potato chip, almost reminiscent of Indian poppadom in thickness and initial bite. That’s where the similarities end though.
This particular chip starts with a promising artificial BBQ flavor you’ll know from other snacks, but that quickly gives way to what I can only describe as one thats unappealingly rancid . Sure, there’s some minimal chicken familiarity but it’s weak.
As my face tuned from excited to “oh god please help me” a nearby friend dug in too. Was this just a personal preference of mine? I watched in turn as their face fell to similar horror. We both barely struggled to eat one chip, the rest went in the garbage.
