The Quest Sour Cream & Onion flavor is the third flavor me to try in their line of protein chips. I really liked their BBQ flavor, and I LOVED their cheddar sour cream flavor. When it comes to regular potato chips, sour cream & onion is easily one of my favorite and go-to flavors. Considering that fact and based on how much I enjoyed their cheddar sour cream flavor, I had some really high expectations going into this one.
Quest Sour Cream & Onion Chips Review
I did think these were quite good, but maybe I shouldn’t have had as high of expectations. Out of the three flavors I’ve tried so far, I felt that this was their weakest one. The sour cream & onion seasoning was tasty for what it was, it just wasn’t as strong or flavorful as I was hoping. If they just included more of it or made it stronger/more intense in some way, then these could have been REALLY awesome. How they stand in their current state though, they’re just merely ‘good’. The same hollow texture is still there as well like their other flavors, but that’s the norm by this point.
The Quest Sour Cream & Onion flavor totals out to 120 calories consisting of the macros 21p/5c/2f with 0g fiber. The lack of fiber is a small flaw, but holy **** at those macros. Definitely makes up for that fact. With how many chips the bag contains, I have no idea how there’s barely any carbs or fat… But somehow, Quest made it possible. Hat’s off to them for sure.
I expected to really love this flavor, but I actually would place it third behind the cheddar sour cream and BBQ. The sour cream & onion seasoning was good, it just wasn’t as strong or intense as I would have liked. If they would have upped its intensity, then this flavor would have scored a bit higher. If you’re wanting that classic sour cream taste, I would opt for the cheddar sour cream flavor instead unless you just really don’t like cheese.
