Popcorn chips in general are pretty tasty. Simple concept, with exceptional results. Imagine popcorn with all of those pesky tooth clinging, and gum poking hulls removed, then the remaining popcorn meat is somehow forced, or popped, into a crunchy triangular chip. How this is actually accomplished, we have no clue, but the end result is something of delicious genius that really works!
For any of you out there who somehow still haven’t tried popcorn chips of any variety or brand, first of all shame on you, and secondly, prepare your mouths for something new and unexpected! The texture is light and crispy, leaning towards crunchy, and a bit more dense and crumbly than traditional tortilla or potato chips. Loads of popcorn flavor compacted into a triangular chip with none of the extra hull filler. Popcorn chips are plain and simple, a great addition to the world of chips!
Popcorners’ all new Sweet Chili flavored popped corn chips are…..decent enough. All in all, a pretty stereotypically, generic and unenthusiastic sweet chili seasoning. A heaping dose of sugar, generous dusting of garlic, a splash of slightly spicy chili, and just a dash of salt. Nothing out of the ordinary, and nothing that sets it apart. Personally, we here at Chip Review prefer the sweet chili seasoning combo atop potato based chips much more than corn based chips. We simply feel like the sweet chili flavors compliment the potato flavor better than corn.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
