59 snack samples to enjoy
OMG ... so what does one do when they receive 59 packets of snack food — share them of course. Thanks to Alex of Tixana for generously supplying three full boxes of all their eight Potato Grill flavours and soy snack mix varieties to sample as a personal appreciation of letting them know how much I enjoyed their Piranha Golden Hash Potato Grills Sea Salt I first discovered back in June. What better way to try them — and share the calories — than to have a major taste test with all my work colleagues. Everyone seemed pretty impressed with the variety available and the crunchy texture of the chips.
When sampling so many flavours at a time it can get a bit hard to appreciate the difference in flavours because the stronger and spicier tasting chips would overpower the taste of the lighter tasting chips. It was best to give a little bit of time between eating them to better appreciate the flavours. Overall one of the favourites of the day was the Maxi Grain Smokehouse Barbeque Waves which I'd have to agree with. So crunchy and tasty yet quite light and melty in the mouth — it was like fine shavings of pork crackling to me, but not exactly. A personal favourite is the Potato Grill Balsamic Vinegar and Sea Salt flavour which is quite distinctive in taste but one of the most spicy and strongest flavours was the Potato Grill Saucy Barbeque which pretty much neutralised your taste buds in tasting any of the other flavours immediately after it.
The Flame Thrower Mild Chilli Lime Peanut and Soy Snack Mix was quite well received and we all expected the Flame Thrower Hot Chilli BBQ Peanut and Soy Snack Mix to be even hotter in taste but it seemed pretty much the same level of spiciness. I still have most of the Vege crackers left to open but so far the Vege Crackers French Onion was very nice.
PROS: Tasty chips with no artificial colours, preservatives and flavours and don't taste like cardboard, Seem less oily, Great crunch factor
CONS: Taste too good to stop at one, Trying not to share
MUST TRY: Maxi Grain Smokehouse Barbeque Waves, Potato Grill Balsamic Vinegar and Sea Salt, Potato Grill Saucy Barbeque
