Ruffles Max Flame Grilled Steak Potato Chips Review

This is supposed to be a limited edition flavor.

This is the second steak flavored chip I have reviewed

The bag was filled with your typical ruffles potato chip. Some larges chips in the bag along a massive 4 inch by 2.5 inch oval potato chip.

The chips were nice and crunchy.

The flavor though was REALLLLLY Great. It really did taste like you were eating a steak.

I give this snackfood item a big thumbs up and something you must try before they go away. Shame on them for making this a limited time item...

Thanks, Kleenex - I've just about stopped buying potato chips because I love 'em so much. Looks like about time for an exception. Hope they're at my store, too.

I was also surprised that the things had a definite grilled steak flavor.
It was very subtle, not overwhelming, which is good.
Also was surprised that the flavor maintained throughout the handful
of chips. I find that often the advertised flavor can be tasted for a chip
or two, then they just become kind of salty and undifferentiated.
I did think the Steak chips were a bit salty.

Oh, and I was pleased that they released these in the smaller Grab bag size.
I usually am not willing to buy a big bag of flavored chips just to try them.

At first I only saw the 1.49 bag, BUTT waited for a big bag. Even in the big bag the flavor was still great at the very bottom of it.

I am eating Ruffles right now. Au Gratin flavour. And they are delicious.

True story.

PS- Can you get Au Gratin flavour in the US? Someone told me you couldn't. That would make me extremely sad for you 'mericans if that were the case...

I've come up empty so far in my search for the grilled steak flavor -- the grocery store did have Ruffles in a bacon & sour cream flavor that sounded great, but I'm holding out for the steak. Didn't see any au gratins either. I may find them yet -- I'm no quitter...especially when it comes to eating chips.

GO TO Canada for that chip. NO way will you find that flavor in the USA.
