REVIEW: Frito-Lay Baked! Ruffles Cheddar & Sour Cream Potato Crisps

Yum, yum, yum... baked chips, baked chips. It's what happens when you find yourself reeeally hungry at lunchtime but realize you haven't packed enough to quench said hunger. So these baked chips are the best option. At least at my school anyway. Our cafeteria doesn't have the best snack selection, to put it simply. But, hey! I was really impressed with the Baked! Flamin' Hot Cheetos from Frito-Lay- these Baked! Ruffles Cheddar & Sour Cream Potato Crisps shouldn't be that much different. Geez... that's a long title for a chip flavor... Plus, why the exclamation point after the "baked?" Chances are people won't be too excited by eating baked chips- let's not emphasize the fact with an exclamation point. 
A 9 oz. bag costs around $3.48.
P.S... The nutrition facts pictured below are for a SINGLE-SERVE BAG. For convenience's sake, I'll also post the by-the-ounce nutrition facts as well:
A 1 oz. serving of chips (28g) contains 120 calories, 30 of them being from fat, 3.5g of total fat, .5g of saturated fat, 0g of trans fat, 0mg of cholesterol, 270mg of sodium, 260mg of potassium, 21g of total carbohydrates, 2g of dietary fiber, 2g of sugar, and 2g of protein.

Hmm, nice sour cream smell... But what the heck!?!? There are, like, seven chips in here. So much for satisfying my hunger... Oh well, personal probs. These chips are covered in a bright orange seasoning- perhaps "covered" is a strong word though. More like speckled, it seems. I think these chips have less seasoning than their regular counterparts, but I'm not sure.

Gee whiz, despite the small amount of it, these chips have a great seasoning! Very flavorful. Very. The flavors of both sour cream and cheese are plenty present, co-existing with one another harmoniously. The two flavors also seem to give the chips a somewhat creamy texture. But don't worry- the chips are still plenty crunchy. However, they are not as greasy as regular chips.

Wow, you know when you try something, not expecting much out of it, but find it to taste a million times better than you can ever imagine? That's how these chips were. Other than the lack of greasiness, these chips taste JUST like the originals, which is hard to do- considering cheese and sour cream sound pretty hard to emulate without super greasy chips. I think these chips are even better than the originals, as grease plus sour cream plus cheese sounds kind of overbearing. Anyway, I would totally recommend these, even for you people who don't really consider looking for decent baked chips flavors. I will definitely buy these again!
I'd give Frito-Lay's Baked! Ruffles Cheddar & Sour Cream Potato Crisps a 10/10!
