Well, since Chip Review is based in Chicago, we’re pretty sure that automatically makes us experts on all things Deep Dish, we’re just saying….
Plain and simple, these cheese curls would make a great game day snack!! They do indeed taste like deep dish pizza flavored cheese curls. Pizza + cheese curls = pass the bowl this way!!
We decided to check around on the internet to see if we were just imagining how much these cheese curls reminded us of pizza, or if anyone else had tried these, and were perplexed / wowed / amazed / bamboozled….by Herr’s magical ways. As it turns out, Dave, from Dave’s Cupboard, had reviewed these puffs a little while back, and he had already put into words, some of what we were thinking:
“ Thanks to noticeable notes of romano cheese and oregano, the curls have a very authentic taste. Herr’s even manages to fool our tastebuds into thinking there might be some kind of tomato involved in the charade, but I checked the ingredients panel and found that there were no tomato-based ingredients (like tomato powder, for example) used – although maybe that came under the umbrella heading of “spices” or “flavors.” Read the rest of Dave’s review at Dave’s Cupboard
That pretty much sums up what we were thinking about these curls as well. The only thing we would possibly add is that we felt there was also a rich buttery flavor mingling in the background. This salty, nutty, richness mirrors quite successfully the buttery, golden crust of a good Chicago deep dish.
Herr’s, once again we just have to say thanks for the willingness to push the flavor boundaries, and equally as important, executing very successfully some more pin-point, melt-in-your-mouth, cheese curls!! We can’t wait to try the other flavors!! And we’d just like to add (that in our opinion) “Herr’s is now the reigning champion of cheese curls!!!”
Sorry Chester, Herr’s has taken the lead, and you’ve got some ground to make up!!
**Also, we feel obliged to tell our readers that as much as these cheese curls may TASTE LIKE deep dish pizza, they aren’t a suffice replacement for the real thing. If you’re wanting some warm, creamy, chewy and comforting deep dish pizza, there’s just no substitution!!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
