What do pickled onions taste like? If you do a quick search the only answer you will find is conveniently on answers.com - and they say they taste like apples. Well, anyone who’s ever had a pickled onion or have sampled anything pickled onion flavor will tell you that’s definitely not the case! Pickled onion flavor is very British, and not all that common here in the United States.
A few years back we posted our Mega Monster Munch Pickled Onion flavor review here on our snack blog. Since then it’s been introduced to our store and has become a great seller, so much so that we don’t get to snack on them often - because they sell out. Recently we started selling Walkers Pickled Onion Crisps. They’ve been a hot seller too. So we thought it would be worth comparing Mega Monster Munch Pickled Onion Crisps and the Walkers Pickled Onion Crisps. So on to the review!
First up is the one we sampled long ago, the Mega Monster Munch Pickled Onion Flavor baked corn snack. We already know we like them, but how do we describe how they taste? Without heading back to our old post we ripped open a bag and gave them a shot. They are intense and bursting with flavor. The have a distinct vinegar burst that mellows out during the after bite. The onion is impactful, but not nearly as notable as the vinegar. The shape is exaggerated and a tad bit silly, but fun nonetheless. Overall, it’s an enjoyable snack from England.
Next up, our newcomer- Walkers Pickled Onion Crisps. If we liked the previous snack, we have to like these? Wrong! They are completely different. The crisps have a burnt tinge, which makes me think they are natural but still takes away from the flavor. Also the onion is much more powerful and very noticeable. If I had to guess, I would say this version tastes more like authentic pickled onions.
So who is the winner in our match up of pickled onion crisps? Two out of three tasters preferred the Mega Monster Munch Picked Onion Crisps. However, our youngest reviewer (a teenager) chose Walkers. So ultimately, it’s up to you to figure it out. Lucky for you (and us) we sell them both online here in the US with international shipping. As always, keep on snacking world!
