Today’s junk food: Kettle Brand Korean Barbeque Potato Chips!!

When I opened this bag of Kettle Brand Korean Barbeque Potato Chips, I sniffed… no soy. No real meaty aroma. Was I missing something here? When this bag says Korean BBQ, I think Korean beef like bulgogi or maybe pork… but I don’t get any of those smells here. I don’t even smell bibimbap sauce. Hm.

I popped some chips in my mouth, and they are delicious. Good kettle chip texture and a nice savory barbecue flavor. Do these taste like Korean BBQ though? As I smack my lips, I do get a slight taste of maybe a hoisin or a bibimbap taste, but it’s still mainly a barbecue flavor with heavier notes of sweet onion and garlic. Not quite the Korean BBQ flavor I was expecting – at the very least I thought there’d be more soy in the flavor.

BUT these tasted really really good. If you buy these looking for a tasty chip, you’ll enjoy these a lot. If you’re looking for a specific Korean BBQ taste, you’re better off elsewhere.

PURCHASED AT: Harris Teeter, Bethesda, MD.

FOUND AT: Chip aisle

COST: $3.00

Marvo knows what's on shelves before anyone. ANYONE. Our trusty leader on The Nosh Show.

Ryan is the fast food guru. His soft dulcet tones will make you want to eat french fries, immediately.

Dubba is an ice cream wizard. He's got two spoons and he's not afraid to use them. Unless it's something spicy.

Chris is an IG god, and knows his stuff. Plus, he's from Maryland. What's not to like?
