Rating: ©©©©-1/2 chips (lip-smacking)
Oh Primizie, so grilled and crispy, and even slightly greasy, you make it so easy, for us to devour your lip-smacking crispbreads because are so cheesy! You know we are impressed with a snack when it inspires us to spontaneously rhyme or review!
According to Primizie’s (Pri’ mit tsje) website, the name is Italian for “first of a kind or category”. Well, prior to these, we had never heard of Crispbreads, and we’ve never known another snack that has actually been both grilled, and then “crisp-ified”, so yeah, first of a kind. We would describe the Crispbreads to some sort of a cross between crunchy pita chips (only lighter), a crispy taco salad bowl (only more substantial), and sort of similar to Gringo Jack’s Handmade Flour Tortilla Chips, (except, so much better). In other words, these are crispy, multi-layered, thick cut, flaky, flour based, grilled, snack crisps – Crispbreads.
Similar to another Primizie review tasting we recently had a gathering at Chip Review, we set out a variety of different chips for our guests to sample, enjoy and comment on. Despite some tough competition, Primizie’s Smoked Dutch Gouda and Garlic Crispbreads were the definite delicious standout.
Everything about these Crispbreads just seemed to work and meld so well together. The splash of delicious oil that subtly covered and complimented each crisp, instead of adding an odd, old oil, aroma and flavor. The salt level was absolutely spot on and easy recognizable. Lastly, and certainly not least, the smooth, creamy, rich and smoky Dutch Gouda and Garlic seasoning was an amazing flavor for the Crispbreads! The smoky aspect was very recognizable, but not overwhelming at all. There was even a wonderful surprise of heat to the crisps, and not just from the potent garlic, but there was definitely something else hidden in the background. Oh look-y here, the always illusive “spices” were included among the ingredients…that’s probably where the heat was hiding.
Plain and simple, Primizie’s Crispbreads are a great addition to the industry! We would place them leagues ahead of the some of the other chip and snack fads like WAFFLE CUT, or especially those popped chips! Although we started out kind of slow with Primizie’s French Velvet Grey Sea Salt, we soon realized that Primizie actually had what it takes with their Classic Italian 7-Herb. And now, with these Smoked Dutch Gouda and Garlic, no one can deny that they are the real deal! We’re actually sort of sad knowing that there is only one flavor left to try – New Mexico Mild Chimayo Chile & Lime. Will it be another hit, or will it fall flat? Stay tuned, we will let you know!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
