Time to go BUCK WILD ONCE AGAIN!
Yep, we will never tire of saying that, and we will also never get used to the buck with aviators staring us down, insisting that we try the goodies inside of his bag!
A few months back we reviewed a few of Buck Wild’s other offerings, including their Roasted Garlic Popcorn. We were big fans of this lip-smacking popcorn, in fact, we were fans of both of the flavors of popcorn we tried. And wouldn’t you know it, it appears as though both of these flavors are getting the tortilla chip treatment now. Granted, these chips are called Garlic Sea Salt, and the popcorn was Roasted Garlic, but (we’re going to let you in on a little secret) the seasonings taste very much the same. The Chipotle Cheddar Popcorn has also gotten the tortilla chip treatment and we will be reviewing those soon as well.
So, as far as these Garlic Sea Salt tortilla chips go – we like them. Like we said before the seasoning is very similar (if not identical) to the seasoning used on Buck Wild’s Roasted Garlic Popcorn. Very garlic forward, with a sort of underlying sweetness, and a smooth, creamy finish.
Buck Wild’s tortilla chips are really good too. All at once light, airy and crispy, as well as, a bit hearty and substantial. A healthy scattering of flax and chia seeds can be found within the chips, and they deliver a nice and subtle textural enhancement that we appreciated it.
Overall, we did not quite love these chips as much as we did the garlic flavored popcorn. Both the seasoning and chips are great in their own ways, but together they just don’t work quite as harmoniously as the popcorn and garlic did.
Buck Wild’s new tortilla chips are available (we believe exclusively) at Walmarts nationwide now, or at least very soon.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
