I love tortillas. Particularly Dorito's so when I saw these for 58p for a huge bag and being my favourite flavour of bbq I had to buy them!
200g foil brown bag with a little Mexican looking man on the front. I'm simply told that they are Tesco's Barbecue Flavour Tortilla Chips and that they are 'new'. Then there is an at a glance nutritional chart on the front and the size (as I've already stated is on there too). On the back of the packet again I'm told what they are, ingredients, that they are suitable for vegetarians, allergy advice, full nutritional information, details for Tesco's, how to store them, size is stated again and a barcode. Nice enough packaging with all the information on there you could possibly need.
Appearance wise they are triangle, slightly bumpy in texture and golden with some black marks on one side of the tortilla to give a baked appearance. The flavouring is an orangy colour and of course some tortillas have more colouring on them as they contain more flavour. As you'd expect to find in a bag of any snack some are broken and some arnt!
Taste wise they do taste bbq style and they are rather flavoursome. They smell it too and generally taste rather nice. As you eat more (and me I always devour a bag of these on one sitting of course lol) they do get rather sweet and I can taste the sugar content. However this is a large bag so if you share them (as I'm sure they are designed for) I'm sure you wouldn't have this problem. They are not too greasy although a little and you do get slightly messy hands as the colouring does come off and they turn your tongue orange.
The most disappointing thing to me is these don't have a deep crunch. Tortilla's usually do have this if you look at say Dorito's. These are not that thick and therefore have a snap to them. What I'm trying to say is in my view they just don't have a lot of substance about them. However they are robust enough and I'm sure they'd be ok if you wish to dip them however for me these are too highly flavoured to be dipping in other stuff.
A problem with these as is with all tortilla's they do get rather drying in your mouth after a while and as these contain alot of flavouring you dry out rather quick, but again it depends how many you eat of course!
Personally I find these rather nice. They don't taste cheap and nasty, they do taste of maize and bbq. They are not too salty and not too greasy and all in all if you watch portion control not that high in calorie's or saturated fat (things I do watch!).
If you like tortillas for 58p these are worth a go!
