“ Manufacturer: American Chip Spice Co. / Type: Condiments „
I love chips though tend not to eat them if I can help it because although I love them sadly my hips really don't! So having them is a bit of a treat for me so when I saw this chip spice in Asda I decided to get it because having chips is such an occasion for me! The Packaging: White tub with a shaker to the top of it which you twist to turn it on/off type of thing lol. Around it the labelling has red and blue and on it and a picture of the statue of liberty and I am told that it is The Original American Chip Spice 'With Paprika' and that it has a unique flavour and that to 'Just sprinkle on chips, pizzas, burgers, barbeque's' and that it contains no colouring or preservatives, contact details for the American Chip Spice Company are given and the size is stated (which in this case is 100g). Other information given on the back of the tub include ingredients and allergy advice being given and storage details. Nice enough tub, easy to use and informative enough it certainly is though the one thing I did notice that I thought was odd is that it doesn't have any kind of nutritional information listed on it at all. The Spice Itself: Well although it's called chip spice of course all this is, is a blend of salt, tomato powder, paprika, onion and garlic so is suitable to use on and in lots of things if you wish too. The blend is dark brown and quite a thick powder. Smell it and it smells sort of meaty and sprinkle it on food and it gives a nice rich colour. Taste wise though I found this foul to be totally honest with you. I was so looking forward to it and I ruined my chips with it lol. It was incredibly salty. I couldn't detect really any other flavour within it at all.....just salt! It made me thirsty as hell and basically wasn't what I expected at all having had chip spice on chips before on chips from the chip shops and places like that in the past. It gives off a slight sour taste and both me and my mate who ate it cos we are sharing a house at the moment agreed...it's flipping vile unless you really enjoy salt! Available in all good supermarkets etc and expect to pay about a pound a tub.
