Review: 7-Eleven Big Bite Hot Dog Flavored Chips
“You got your potato chips in my hot dog!”
“You got your hot dog in my… umm… chips?” Sometimes life really surprises you. While standing in line yesterday on a gas run at 7-Eleven, I saw something that both defies logic and begged for a review; Hot Dog Flavored Chips.
Why do they even exist? Your guess is as good as mine. I could go on about the texture and aroma, but I’ll go ahead and get this out of the way, yes, they taste like a hot dog. A hot dog with ketchup and mustard. Are they good? I don’t know. 7-eleven has found the fifth flavor which I can only refer to as “weird”. These are your standard ruffled potato chips that taste exactly like a friggin’ hot dog. While I hate these, 7-Eleven did a great job of making chips that somehow… taste like a hot dog. So on one hand I can’t stand these, but on the other 7-Eleven hits a home run by making POTATO CHIPS THAT TASTE LIKE A HOT DOG! How on earth do I score this?
Jurassic Park is a great metaphor for many things in life. We made these chips because we could, but we never asked ourselves if we should make them. My big concern is that next a velociraptor will be manning the register at 7-Eleven, or their next big thing will be a bunch of crushed up potato chips shoved into a natural casing, thrown on a bun and it will be called the “Chip Dog Big Bite”.
Pros: Chips that taste like a hot dog.
Cons: Chips that taste like a hot dog.
