It was just last week we reported Aldi was selling Turkey and Stuffing potato chips.

When people look back at history, they're going to say 2020 was the pits...but three things stood out. The American Spirit, masks with funny sayings, and Aldi's Thanksgiving flavored potato chips! (Keep reading about Aldi's chips.)

The big question then and now was/is, "How do they taste?"

I sat down in my oddly empty apartment in Rochester, Minnesota, and all you have to do is hit play to watch the taste test.

TASTER'S NOTES

Item Being Tested

  • Aldi's Turkey and Stuffing Wavy Potato Chips by Clancy

Aroma Test

  • No doubt about it, these chips smell like Stove Top Stuffing.

Crunch Test

  • Very crunchy.
James Rabe tests taste and crunch.

Wavy Test

  • Definitely wavy.

Taste Test

  • The "flavor profile" (ugh, I can't believe I used that phrase...but I'm a tate-tester in 2020 and that's what you have to say!) is very stuffing, tiny hint of gravy (not sure if that's intentional), and not one bit of turkey taste. Not an iota. Not a smidge. Not a wing, nor a breast. So, major points lost for lack o'turkey.

Final Score

  • 2.5 out of 5

Final Thoughts

  • The lack of turkey flavor means a lack of balance. Stuffing is so good because it counters the blandness of the turkey. However, without the stuffing you're left with what? Exactly. Just bread. Sure, it's delicious bread, but bread and some spices. I'm not going to buy 'em again, but at less than $2 a bag? Try it out, even just for fun.
