Baked Ruffles: Cheddar and Sour Cream!

The baked line by Frito-Lay has made me a much happier camper in general. The flavor on every Baked snack they have offered has been consistently solid, and this one is no different. Actually, this one might be my new favorite. I always preferred Ruffles over Lays in the original line thanks to the ridged nature of the chip that made it a great textural pairing with say, a turkey sandwich. This version of Ruffles maintains the same texture while still delivering bold flavor and a much crunchier bite. There's something I enjoy about matte finished bags in general and the packaging on this one delivers as well with appealing colors and layout.

Flavor wise it has a nice and tangy sour bite followed by a nearly buttery, cheddar flavor. The baked nature makes these great to snack on while multitasking thanks to literally no form of greasy residue. These are really a great example of making a product healthier without sacrificing flavor. My mind was blown after looking at the nutritional label, yours will be too! (In a good way). These are fantastic by themselves or with a sandwich and I really loved the textural quality, flavor and crunch of this solid offering. Its been great to see this line expand and introduce even more delicious baked varieties of the classics. A must have!

Buy this snack :)
