Tastiest Classic Salted Potato Chips To Buy – Mishry Reviews

We had two Top Picks for our taste review, both with a distinct texture (ribbed and wafer-style) and that may appeal to different people.

As one of the more popular snacking options, potato chips have made their mark as something that is a necessary side-ingredient for most gatherings and get-togethers. We could hardly resist reviewing this crunchy phenomenon ourselves!

While there are a gazillion flavors out there, (barbecue, chili-tomato, cream-onion, and hot&sour to name a few popular ones), the classic salted version continues to rule the roost. It’s versatile, tasty and never goes out of fashion. After going through multiple packets of chips from 6 different brands, we believe Lay’s Classic Salted (Ribbed) & Uncle Chips Plain Salted (Wafer-style) are the crunchiest, and tastiest potato chips available currently.

How We Picked Our Brands

In this review, we were looking for the tastiest, crunchiest and perfectly seasoned potato chips in the classic salted/plain salted category. So all commonly available brands that do a classic version were part of our review. The review included brands that do either ribbed or wafer-style chips.

Our choice of brands also kept price points in mind. We picked brands that offered products in a similar price range. Some gourmet, imported brand may also be offering a plain-salted version, but those would be in a different price range, hence were not a part of our review.

Who Is It For?

Who doesn’t like potato chips/wafers?!

While everyone has their favorite flavor when it comes to potato chips/flavors, the basic plain salted version never goes out of style. This review is likely to reaffirm what you like already or give you a new variant to try out!

Plain salted potato chips have a larger fan following as compared to their flavored counterparts, for these go well with many other flavors. If you are looking to just to bite into something on a game-night, or you are looking for something that’ll be a perfect accompaniment for your homemade hummus or curd-coriander dip – then our Top picks will not disappoint.

The Tasting – Our Parameters

For our taste test, we were looking for a product that has a great balance between saltiness and crunchiness. Apart from that, the ingredients and the overall content of the pack were also important. Here a quick peek at the list of parameters that we set to effectively compare the brands:

The Crunch: The crunch texture of every bite of a potato chip is what everyone likes. Some potato chips tend to be more ‘chunky’ than crunchy.

Flavor: These might appear to be ‘simple’ flavors, the fact is that the classic salted taste of these chips is quite tough to get right. The perfect balance will mean the chips are not over-salty, and yet seasoned such that you keep asking for more.

The Result

We had two Top Picks for our taste review, both with a distinct texture (ribbed and wafer-style) and that may appeal to different people.
