BIJOU-REVIEW: Simply Balanced Organic – Baked Corn Puffs Jalapeno Cheddar Cheese

Rating: ©©©-3/4 chips  (notable)

Simply Organic - Jalapeno Cheddar PuffsCrispy, crunchy, baked corn puffs!

Unusual size – about half the length of what we would call a traditional cheese puff.

Holy moly – are they serious??  They can’t really be serious…. Just try and guess how many puffs are in one serious serving size?  Twenty?  Thirty?  Getting warmer….. Maybe forty??  NO! SIXTY PUFFS!!  That’s Six-Zero – 60.  Name one other snack you eat sixty of, and have still only consumed a single serving?  No other snack we can think of.  Maybe grains of rice?  If you consider that a snack.

This is one of those snacks where despite the healthy, baked, organic labels, the puffs are flavorful and provide enough delicious belly filling bang for our buck!

First, a spicy, vegetal flavor kick from a combination of chipotle and jalapeño powders hits the tongue,  The heat does slowly build with the more and more puffs you eat (and you will eat a lot of them); but it never truly reaches any extreme burning culmination.

The light, baked corn puffs weren’t completely devoid of that rich, fatty, textural mouthfeel, but they also did not deliver nearly as much as the best cheese puffs out on the market.

The cheese seasoning really just tasted  like tangy salt.

Overall, we enjoyed eating these, mostly because we felt like we were eating healthy, while still consuming tons and tons of puffs.

As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think.  Agree or disagree, let us know.
