What do you call a ring that is not yours? (Never gets old in our book!)
Jay’s Nacho Rings?!? Hmm…what do we really have here? First, can we just ask – what exactly is nacho flavor? Is nacho, different than nacho cheese? Or, can nacho flavor even exist without the cheese? It’s a head-scratcher we know, but according to the ingredients list one we don’t even really need to ask, because sure enough there’s cheese among those ingredients. So, let’s just bank that one for the future.
Can we just point out the simple fact that these Nacho Rings are shaped just like fried calamari rings! If you are like us than you are friends of the lightly battered, toothsome little sea creatures, and you know exactly what we are talking about. If you are not like us, than you should know that we are talking about fired squid circles, and you need to dine out more!
After popping one Nacho Ring into our mouths we immediately knew what we were really dealing with there. You can’t fool us, Jay’s Nacho Rings are the amazing hybrid offspring of a Bugle and a cheese puff! Instantly, crunchy, light, corn-y, and mouth-meltable!! Ring-shaped nacho cheese puffs with a crispy outer edge reminiscent of a Bugle! Yeah, they’re good, and really easy to devour!
The rings are crammed with loads of seasoning. Tomato, onion, garlic, mixed with cheesy-cheese and deliciousness! The seasoning combination is nothing outrageous or transcendent, but certainly flavorful, and more than adequate. Maybe it is just their ring shape, but we’ve also convinced ourselves that these ring-Bugle-puffs sort of remind us of onion ring snacks, a la Funyuns, with a strong onion undertone (which in our books is never a bad thing).
All in all, count us as fans!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
