Skyline Chili vs. Gold Star Chili? My observation... [Cincinnati]

donw9876 | Aug 29, 201105:18 PM     16

We went to a Gold Star last night because it was the only one of the two chains that was open late enough to seat us.

I experienced something with the small three way I got that I had never noticed before. The Gold Star chili actually had an odd chemical off-taste to my palate that was unpleasant.

My wife did not notice anything except that the Gold Star seemed a bit sweeter and less spicy than Skyline. I tried her chili and I got the same off taste.

We are used to Skyline - we just like the menu items better, and I like the Greek salad there. So my taster is attuned to Skyline, and Gold Star either registers quite differently, or, there was something the matter with that batch.

Does anyone else care to comment on the perceived taste of Skyline vs. Gold Star chili?
