After the first chocolate, I thought to myself, “Ah, yes – just another gimmick to sell chocolates.” The second chocolate confirmed my suspicions: the chips were not nearly salty enough to be truly delicious. The third chocolate, eaten in the interest of fairness, turned up the same result as the first two: essentially, these were just potato-flavored chocolates with extra crunch. As a dedicated researcher, of course, I ate the whole bag, and my findings remained consistent. These are just delicious chocolates covered in delicious potato chip crumbs, nothing special. Absolutely no reason to go out and buy another bag.
Except maybe that was not a representative sample.
And due diligence is important, after all.
