There are a whole host of NEW savoury snacks out, at the minute. I was in two minds whether to try these Ritz Crisp & Thin but was persuaded when I saw they were on a "Better than half price" offer at £1 rather than £2.19. I picked up 2 flavours - Cream Cheese & Onion and Sea Salt & Vinegar.
Cream Cheese & Onion
Oven baked, crispy potato thins with Cream cheese and Onion flavour.
I am not sure what had happened to the bag but as you can see, all the crisps were broken! The onion scented shards had a super crispy texture due to being thin and airy. Taste wise, the flavour was just as strong - I do think this overpowered any potential cream cheese flavour though, apart from maybe still having a slight tang. Another thing to note is how greasy they felt, both in hand and in the mouth! They left a horrible film which along with the potent onion aftertaste, wasn't all to pleasant! Its 1 out of 5 from me.
Sea Salt & Vinegar
Oven baked, crispy potato thins with Sea Salt & Vinegar flavour.
I couldn't believe it when I tipped these out of the bag - How are they the same crisps as the Cream Cheese & Onion!? Once again, the texture was very crunchy and would be very more-ish.. Thats if they didn't taste of bananas! Yes, you read that correctly. I am assuming the acid in the vinegar is to blame for this horrible flavour! I was immediately put off and I stopped munching, immediately. I did however eat enough to know they aren't as greasy as the others which is something.. At least! Its a 0.5 out of 5!
Overall, I was right in being hesitant about trying these NEW Ritz Crisp & Thin - The flavours are totally whack! I hope they are a snack that comes and goes promptly as no one should ever be subjected to greasy onion nor bloomin repulsive, savory banana crisps! Good grief.
