Rating: ©©-3/4 chips (tolerable)
If you are looking for a more detailed description of who and what GimMe Chips are, then please see our original review of their Teriyaki flavored chips located right over here.
However, if you are simply looking for the quick and simple low down on these wasabi flavored seaweed rice chips, please continue reading.
Wasabi + seaweed + rice = winning flavor combination for a very long time.
However (you knew there was going to be a however), GimMe Chips wasabi flavored seaweed rice chips somehow in our opinion do not knock this one out of the park.
Plain and simple, the seaweed flavor is too prominent for our paletes, and dominates the usually powerful wasabi flavor.
It’s not that we don’t taste any wasabi, because we do; and it tastes like the same old burning nasal punch as it always does. However, despite wasabi’s undeniably powerful presence, somehow the seaweed still steals the show (and like we’ve said before, we don’t love licking the bottom of the ocean!).
The chips themselves had a strong, hearty crunch, with a grainy mouth texture.
So, if you are a big fan of that seaweed ocean flavor, and you also like getting your sushi maki on, then you may very well like these chips and we suggest you give them a try for yourselves.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
