Here is yet another U.K. corn-based puffy snack for us to contemplate. Like we’ve said before, the vast majority of our U.S. puffed corn snacks are typically covered in cheese (the two seem synonymous with one another). In fact, the only popular U.S. puffed corn snack that we can possibly compare these Transform-A-Snacks to would be Funyuns, and that comparison is not very far off!
Transform-A-Snacks are shaped exactly like the small rings that the spaceman is shooting, or throwing, at us on the front of the packaging. However, they were not made up of those rings alone, the shapes also included, what we have to assume, were supposed to be puffs/snacks in the shape of our friendly spaceman’s four-wheel ATV. Frankly, to us, they looked like poorly constructed letter “T”s.
Funny we should mention Funyuns above, because just about every taster at Chip Review said that these reminded them of Funyuns, and that if there was supposed to be any cheese flavoring, what so ever, it was nearly indistinguishable. First, foremost, and predominantly, the flavor of these should be called sweet-sweet onion. Their texture was a bit more dense, and crunchy, than your basic puff snack, or Funyuns for that fact. Their texture wasn’t necessarily off-putting by any means, but we definitely didn’t like them as much as most corn puff snacks.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
