Elma Chips Brazil Sensações Peito de Peru
This bag is so freaking good. "Peito de Peru" is a "Turkey Breast" flavored bag of chips in the Sensações (Sensations) line (it's Lay's fancy pants collection of more elevated flavors). This is the first time I've seen a Turkey Breast flavored bag, and I gotta say... people are missing out! The chips were incredible. These were my first bag of Elma's and the potato quality is off the charts good. I'd compare them to Walkers or Margaritas, but for some reason they just felt lighter on the palette. I don't know if that was due to the Olive Oil used in seasoning, or that the chips were cooked less time (you could tell that they were more yellow, less brown than you get in most bags). Either way, the chip seemed light and airy, while still packing lots of potato flavor. The seasoning was also delicate; olive oil & turkey. Simple. At first I thought this was a Ham flavor, before translating the label, but the flavor is clearly more delicate than ham. Similar though. For that reason, I'd say if you are a fan of Ham or Bacon flavored bags, you have to give this one a try.
I devoured the bag pretty quickly. Just awesome! Good job Elma!
