We have been striking it pungently rich this year with cloves of delicious garlic snacks!
And we are happy to report that these New PopCrinkles can be easily added to that list!
We had a sneaking feeling PopCrinkles logo looked very familiar, and as it turns out, PopCrinkles are the new “popped potato crinkles”, aka potato crisps, from the creators of “the new shape of popcorn”, aka popcorn chips – PopCorners.
In other words, PopCrinkles has hopped right onto the popular popped potato bus, and hopes to ride it all the way to popular popped potato palace.
If these first crinkles are any indication of the entire flavor line-up than PopCrinkles is definitely headed in the right direction.
The popped potato crinkles are thicker than regular potato chips, and deliver a significantly solid crunch. And yet at the same time are light and crispy enough that you can eat an entire bag and not really feel a dent in the old chip collector.
The crinkles deliver enough “real” potato flake flavor to evoke thoughts of eating delicious fried potato slices.
The Roasted Garlic & Sea Salt flavor delivers a deliciously well balanced seasoning blend. Certainly not as powerfully garlic flavored as other garlic chips on the market.
We also wouldn’t go so far as to call it the most authentic representation of roasted garlic flavor, with the inclusion of ingredients such as: sour cream, brown sugar, cheddar cheese, butter powder, whey, and yeast extract…
All in all we are very pleased with PopCorners new PopCrinkles, and hope to see PopPuffs and PopPretzels soon!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
