i've had chocolate covered chips on one other occasion and they were delicious. kind of like Pringles covered in chocolate. they were salty and sweet and delicious. based on that experience i was really excited for these. alas, they did not live up to my expectations. where the other chips i had reminded me of salty, delicious Pringles, these were more like greasy, non-salted Ruffles. if Ruffles were not salted they would be gross, kind of like these Chocolate Covered Potato Chips, which also happen to have a slightly dirty taste. another issue is the ratio of chocolate to chip - way too much chocolate for such a thin chip. although actually, the chips are rather thick, the chocolate is just so overloaded. all in all, not a good thing. i'll have to find those other chips i tried and see if they're as good as i remember.
