Rating: ©©-3/4 chips (tolerable)
We’ve tasted an array of different “healthier” snack food options from Goldbaum’s now, and for the most part they been pretty good.
These latest barbecue flavored multigrain quinoa crisps fall right there inline with the rest.
The quinoa crisps’ texture is just sort of……off, or off-putting, let’s say. Kind of stale, with a soft crunch.
Goldbaum’s tries to redeem the crisps by dousing them with a heavy orangish-red seasoning coat, but it does not quite do the trick.
The barbecue seasoning blend reminds us of a Texas BBQ sauce that is heavy on the Hickory smoke essence.
The inclusion of paprika adds another smoky, and slightly sweet, note, while some sort of chili adds just a touch of peppery heat.
We recognize the necessity of these crunchy crisps in the snack market, but that doesn’t mean that we would be choosing them over tastier, more unhealthy, options.
