CAPE COD SEASONED PEPPER WAFFLE CUT POTATO CHIPS

Cape Cod Potato Chips this month introduced its first waffle cut, kettle-cooked potato chip in two flavors: Sea Salt Waffle Cuts and Seasoned Pepper Waffle Cuts. We put the latter to the test.

How much: $3.79 for 7 ounces

What they're selling: "Double-sliced for a unique cut that offers a more robust potato flavor, the Seasoned Pepper Waffle Cuts are proven to stand up to the thickest of dips and chili recipes with a crunch like no other chip."

THE VERDICT

The Seasoned Pepper chips are coated with a seasoning made out of red, black and white pepper. I liked the pepper taste, but thought it was a little strong. The waffle chips were thick as the packaging said, almost like eating two chips at once. Overall, they were OK, but wouldn't be my first choice, especially at almost $4 a bag.

Would you buy again? Maybe***Final rating: ** (2 out of 5 stars)

THE VERDICT

My son and I did not enjoy these chips. They were too spicy, and he thought the pepper was overpowering. As for my daughter, she prefers spicy, so she thought they were the perfect combination of seasoning and spice. I prefer the original flavored Cape Cod chips. (As far as the cost for this flavor, the price is a little too much.)

Would you buy again? No***Final rating: ** (2 out of 5 stars)
