Off the shelf: Smith’s KFC Zinger potato chips

Smith's KFC ZingerIt’s been a while since we’ve had any limited edition potato chips, and I had high hopes for this new KFC / Smith’s hybrid variety. They’re only available at Coles, for reasons about to become obvious…

Smith's KFC ZingerSounds fabulous.

Smith's KFC Zinger*sigh*

These were a major disappointment. There was no real flavour to speak of, just the vague taste of pepper and background heat that comes from nowhere in particular. I don’t understand why they didn’t take some chicken flavour chips, and add some chilli to them. Anything would be better – and more Zinger – than this.

These can go straight in the bin with the Zinger pie and Nacho Box.
