I bought a 2 and 5/8-oz. bag for $1.49.
Strangely, none of the supermarkets near me seemed to stock this limited-time offering. I gave up on finding them and had all but forgotten about them until I stumbled across this snack-sized bag at my local 7-11 tonight. Now I really, really wish I had a large bag because these are utterly delicious.
Upon opening the bag, there's a light aroma of vinegar; not as much as you'd get from salt and vinegar chips but it's noticeable. They look similar to bbq-flavored chips that are just a touch lighter in color.
These are a wondrous mix of some of my favorite things: salt and vinegar chips, ketchup, and bbq sauce. I'm at a bit of a loss as to how else I can describe it, but I'll give it my best shot.
Biting into one, there's a very light taste of vinegar. Then immediately there's the the tangy tomato sweetness of ketchup, which fades slowly into a smokiness that's very similar to barbecue sauce. There's even an almost creamy undertone to it that brings to mind chips featuring sour cream. It's a wonderful combination of salty, sweet, tangy, and savory.
The chips are nice and crunchy due to the ridges and are heavily flavored because the seasoning just cakes on all available surface area.
Overall, I'm a huge fan of Ruffles All Dressed Potato Chips. The flavor is still a complete mystery to me, but a delicious one that I am more than happy to contemplate as I shovel chips into my face. I'm now convinced that Ruffles All Dressed is Canada's best-kept secret.
