RUFFLES® MAX® Loaded Bacon & Cheddar Potato Skins chips

New fun fact about me: I used to work at a TGI Friday’s. We don’t have to talk about Jack Daniel’s steak or the infamous drinks, but let’s talk potato skins. Everybody’s favorite, cheese-and-bacon-topped indulgence.

Fellow bloggers Snort Ramen have sampled this newfangled snack, and it’s quite a rousing tale. Bacon makes everything better, sour cream makes everything better and, although I’m not a fan myself, I hear cheese makes everything better. So, a warm, cozy baked potato is the rule and most certainly not the exception. Wow, foodporn much?

Taking extreme closeups to the MAX!

All in all, Ruffles Max Loaded Bacon & Cheddar Potato Skins taste pretty good. While the texture is a complete 180 from the soft, gooey, crunchy, creamy texture of a loaded potato skin, there are hints of the original. A little smoky bacon aura here, a little muted sour cream and cheddar there. It pretty much tastes just like an amped us Sour Cream and Cheddar flavor. Oh boy, wish I had compared these two now, because off the top of my head I remember the SC&C flavor packing a much more powerful punch.

Something about this flavor is addictive. I need somebody to tell me to stop. I’m even reading this Guardian article about fast food, and it’s not doing the trick.

On the upside, a bag of these bad boys has 27% of your daily potassium. Yum!

  1. I haven’t had the “Loaded Bacon and Cheddar” but the Ruffles Cheddar is my favorite to get out of the snack machine at work.

  2. Ruffles was always my favourite chip. Though I’m a sucker for the ranch flavour.

  3. You know what, we actually haven’t had the Ruffles Max Loaded Bacon and Cheddar chips either….but, if they are anything like Ruffles Sour Cream & Cheddar, just with bacon added – consider us a fan!!
