I just got back from my trip to Columbus OH. Shout outs to Heroes and Games for hosting the annual OP Cup at their store. Whenever I go to the US, I always do a grocery run and load up on junk food you can only get south of the border. I only managed to pick up about $50 US this time around.
Pringles – Cheese Burger
I am finding these Food Truck flavors quite appetizing. They have familiar flavors that I know and they hit it spot on. The previous trip netted me some Kickin’ Chicken Taco Pringles and those had the familiar taco spices but I think chicken was only in the name for the rhyme. This time around I found the Cheese Burger flavor and, no surprise, it tastes like cheese burger. The taste was too evenly spread out but overall it was satisfying.
Lays – New York Reuben
I’ll be honest, I haven’t tasted a Reuben sandwich before, at least not a proper one. And because of that, I didn’t know what to expect. The taste seemed like a complete mix of flavors that neutralized it completely. There’s a hint of the tangy-ness of the sauerkraut but that’s about it.
Lays – Kettle Cooked Greektown Gyro
On the contrary to the Reuben, I’ve had many gyro pitas, I even had one this past weekend in Columbus. My expectations for this chip was low, expecting it to taste similar to the Kettle Cooked Tzatziki from last year’s Canadian DUAF contest.
I was wrong.
There’s a very strong lamb taste to the chip. It really does taste like gyro meat with a bit of helpings. This is currently at the top of list.
Two US DUAF chips down, two to go. I will try the West Coast Truffle Fries and Southwest Biscuits and Gravy and report back having never tried either one ‘properly’.
