Rating: ©©©-3/4 chips (notable)
Way Better Snacks (WBS) delivers some notably healthy deliciousness, but they aren’t quite up to the level of amazing that Beanfields Jalapeño Nacho Bean & Rice Chips delivered just days ago!
In all honesty we tasted these new WBS at the same sitting as we tried those Beanfield chips, and it wasn’t really fair to WBS. Beanfield’s Jalapeño Nacho seasoning was so powerfully packed with flavor that they made these chips taste like they had no seasoning at all!
We’ve enjoyed about half of the offering we have tried from Way Better Snacks, and we would put these among that category. There’s just something about those slightly sweet and seedy, sprouted tortilla chips that our taste buds really enjoy.
As for the ‘A Nacho Above’ seasoning, well, we stick by our initial tasting thoughts that this stuff is very, very subtle. Only a light dusting of orange seasoning has been applied to the chips. The seasoning tastes very much like cheddar cheese powder. We really didn’t get any background seasoning notes, and certainly no level of nacho heat.
Overall though, the light cheese coating does jive very well with WBS’s naturally sweet and diversely textured tortilla chips. We had no problem crunching our way through these, they just didn’t wow us in any way either.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
