Haldiram’s Chilli Chatak Lachha (Chilli Flavour Potato Sticks)
These snacks are one of the strangest we’ve ever tasted. They are a standard potato stick in shape and appearance but immediately when they hit your tongue they impart a very weird sharp flavor that comes off like sulphur or some harsh chemical that should not be eaten. After getting that flavor it is hard to focus on anything else about this snack. It’s hard to discern which of the spices listed in the ingredients list is the one causing the bad taste but it definitely overpowers all the other ones and on top of that these snacks are extremely salty, to the point where your mouth puckers from all the salt. The texture of the potato sticks is pretty weak and they are kind of mushy. Overall not a pleasant snack at all and it was hard to eat more than a few of these. And when you sniff the bag they smell EXACTLY like dry cat food.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 3/10
Bottom Line: Really salty and harsh flavor.
