The other day when we were at the grocery store, we couldn't help but notice a new flavor of Ruffles just in time for the Super Bowl: Molten Hot Wings. Since we're crazy about potato chips and love anything with Buffalo hot wing flavor, we picked up a bag. How did they taste? Find out after the jump.
These chips have the classic Ruffle shape with super thin ridges and plenty of crunchy texture. Their artificial orange color is a little more vibrant than the Ruffles Cheddar and Sour Cream flavor. They smell, as is to be expected, like a bottle of hot wing sauce.
As for the taste, the traditional tang of Buffalo sauce hits the palate first, and it's followed closely by a hint of heat that's sightly smoky. The flavor profile is spot on, but these chips are hardly hot. I wouldn't even consider them spicy. Still if you like hot wings, you'll enjoy these Ruffles, and something tells me that they would be absolutely amazing dipped into a bowl of blue cheese dressing.
