World of Snacks is on a mission to locate the very best cookies, chocolates, sweets, and chips from around the world. At the beginning of this year we started offering some of these best snacks that we have found for sale online in our international snack store. Each month this year we’ve added and will continue to add a new country and their best snacks. One of our recent additions is Mexico. Our review today is of a Mexican Chip produced by a company called Barcel.
We are reviewing the Chipotles Chipotle & Cheese Corn Chips that come in a 2.8oz bag. We do currently offer these Mexican Chips for sale online (among others). The bag is mostly black and has fiery red streaks throughout. Of course there is the Barcel logo followed by the name of the chips. Below there are two very odd shaped corn chips followed by two wedges of Swiss cheese and a fire roasted chipotle pepper. Now onto the taste test!
Our taste test group was pretty diverse and all the responses were varied. Generally when we utilize a large sample group of testers we tend to see some patterns, however that was not the case this time. So our review of Barcel Chipotles Chipotle & Cheese Chips is from my sole perspective. The texture and shape of the chip was unique, and unlike anything in the US. The shape is clearly meant to resemble a chipotle pepper. The texture is firm, salty (but not too salty), and crisp. The color was redder than the image from the bag. The smell of the chips is zesty. My first impression of the flavor was it was a little weak and it left me wanting more. However, a few seconds later a slow warm burn followed, which although I have never experienced with a chip, I did enjoy. As I continued my sample the flavor grew even more enjoyable and notes of the creamy Swiss cheese began to become more apparent. Overall I was personally very pleased with this foreign snack.
Well, that’s our review of Barcel Chipotles Chipotle & Cheese Chips. We’d love for you buy a few bags and let us know what you think! You can shop our full selection of Mexican Snacks online now and if you’d like to be notified when we expand our store please leave your details to the right. Keep on snacking world!
