T.G.I. Friday's - Original Onion Rings


Onion Ring snacks are most definitely a thing of their own.  We’re fairly certain that Funyuns were the original, and the rest just followed suit, while adding their own twist and take to them (although, we have nothing to back this hypothesis up with, so don’t quote us on it).

T.G.I. Friday’s Onion Rings are fairly unique, and kind of weird too.  If you expect to see large, light colored onion rings when you first open the bag, you are in for a surprise!  At first, they reminded a lot of us of a large cereal ring…..picture giant onion flavored, caramel colored, Fruit Loops!  Just add milk and you’ve got onion cereal…….yuck!  These are probably the smallest onion ring snack that we can remember tasting.  We think one Chip Reviewer nailed their appearance on the head when they described these imperfect tubes as looking like fried calamari rings (don’t worry, this snack is not chewy)!!

The flavor is a tad too subtle and mild for our liking.  There is a certain level of sweetness to the mellow onion flavor, but the overall seasoning level is just lacking.  We like their texture, it crunches and melts, and it got even better with the more rings we ate, but we just wish that their was more flavor punch to entangle with these crunchy rings!

As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think.  Agree or disagree, let us know.
