I couldn’t resist the temptation of opening the bags so I went ahead and opened one. The unmistakable smell of sour cream and onion chips wafted into the air inviting me to dig in. The flavor was very sour cream & onion-y. The mouth feel was spot-on crunchy. Not that I would mistake it for potato chips (the slightly thicker slices and wee bit starchy) but it’s close. The chips are from California Crunch and these are cassava chips. But it ain’t the same ole kamote chips we are accustomed to.
Lagal[og] says: Oh, I’m quite a chips fanatic and Lay’s is my long-time favorite. I didn’t have much expectations which is why the California Crunch Cassava Chips came as a very pleasant surprise. I really like the Sour Cream and Onions flavor (I think I finished the whole bag in one sitting). Comforting to know the chips do have 30% less cholesterol compared to potato chips though if it didn’t taste the way they did, I wouldn’t have really finished the whole bag. I just wished the chips are less salty though.
Ironwulf says: I enjoyed the thicker and crispier crunch these Cassava Chips have. There’s more to chew on than those regular potato chips. The Barbecue Flavor was my favorite. I like the strong flavor and the spice that builds up on each munch. The Sour Cream and Onion successfully masked its cassava roots with its distinct flavor, but it was a tad too salty for my taste.
