While working my way through the massive box of samples that Goumas sent me, I noted the plethora of turtles, nut clusters, and caramels…and then saw the best thing ever.
Chocolate covered potato chips.
Two varieties. Including a milk chocolate version.
The chocolate coating is creamy with a caramel flavor, and is fast melting.
The chips inside, amazingly, remained incredibly crisp, giving the creation a perfect blend of sweet-salty and smooth-crunchy. It’s a bit on the sweet side, but I personally enjoy sweet treats and am certain that I could eat an entire pound of these.
You know how I said I could eat so many of those chocolate covered cashews that you should never send them to me? Yeah. Same deal with those milk chocolate covered potato chips. Danger.
Perhaps the dark chocolate version would be less addictive. Or, perhaps it would have a creamy, salty aroma that hinted at something just as delicious.
The chocolate is fairly thick, featuring a creamy texture, a mild earthy flavor and quite a bit of sugar for a dark chocolate. The chip is crisp, but too sparse. Amazingly, I found the chocolate to chip ratio to be far too high in this treat. There needs to be more crunch and salt; I personally found the milk version to be better balanced.
Have you had chocolate-covered potato chips before?
