Snack #128- Deep River Snacks Jalapeño & Cheddar Baked Fries

Deep River Snacks Jalapeño & Cheddar Baked Fries

This is a unique idea for a snack; instead of a standard chip, a fluffy French fry shape. Unfortunately, the texture of these ends up a little too much like packing peanuts for my liking. They are similar to a cheese curl but a little bit firmer and crunchier. They are made of corn and potatoes and are completely gluten-free, which is also a plus for any wheat free diets, and the base ingredients can’t really be tasted through the flavorings on these snacks anyway. The flavor of these is fairly indistinct. They have a good bit of heat to them but not really a specific jalapeño flavor. They taste more like onion powder with a lot of salt and a little spice powder added. The cheese flavor is also pretty unappetizing; it’s way more like a fake cheese powder flavor than any natural cheddar flavor. The fries are all natural so I guess they have real cheese but it’s one of those really sweet nacho cheese flavors. I generally really enjoy jalapeño flavored potato snacks so I was pretty bummed that these tasted so artificial.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 4/10
Bottom Line: Unsuccessful attempt at natural cheese puffs.
