If you’re in the mood for seafood and you especially enjoy crab, this is a cost effective snack to enjoy to satisfy that craving. Be aware, however, that if you get a bag of these chips, you’d better be ready for some serious crab taste.

Unlike a crab chip option from a major chip manufacturer, there’s no difference in concentration of crab spices in these Route 11 options. Each chip that I tried (and I got through most of the bag) had the same strong crab taste, which wasn’t true for the other brand which will remain nameless in this article.

I don’t know that I’d say these were a spicy chip option, but there was definitely more than a hint of hotness. Not much more than a hint, but enough to add an extra little zing that I like when I order crab cakes at a restaurant, whether it’s from a sauce or the mixture.

Though it’s not how I experienced these chips, I’d imagine that these chips would pair up quite nicely with a seafood sub from Subway (or any other deli which might serve such an item, or if you were to make your own from crab meat and mayonnaise).
