We still giggle a little every time we hear someone try to pronounce quinoa for the first time… Quin-noah?, is what we usually hear.
Ooooh, the quinoa puffs are in the shape of a heart. Yep, it’s those little details that really get us every time.
Well, these are certainly unique, and definitely a first.
Unfortunately, opinions seem to also be uniquely split right down the middle.
Some of us here at Chip Review really, really, appreciated the quinoa puffs, and after a couple additional handfuls, began to love them. Extra crunchy, cheddar dusted, grain-y quinoa “croutons”.
Others of us here at Chip Review did not like them one bit. Sorry. Weird, hard, quinoa snack nuggets.
Hearty crunch, not a meltable texture at all. These are not puffs like we know puffs. No corn meal melt at the site of tongue moisture here….these “puffs” have some body. They are cruuuuuunchy! Plain and simple, the quinoa puffs’ texture is not normal, and may even be off putting to some…..but, definitely unique!
The aged cheddar seasoning is fine. It is salty, a little funky, with a good orange color.
Some will love these, and others not so much. We can’t wait to try some more flavors from these guys!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
