If there’s one bad habit I can never seem to quit, it’s wolfing down chips. Every time I catch sight of an open bag around the office, I have to get myself a handful. My insatiable appetite for chichiria means I’ll try anything that promises a satisfying crunch. So when these Cornitos Nacho Crisps landed on our desks, I immediately volunteered to do the taste-test. I know, I know: it’s a hard job, but someone’s gotta do it!
WHAT’S IN CORNITOS?
Cornitos Nacho Crisps are gluten-, trans fat-, and cholesterol-free tortilla chips from India. They come in a wide array of interesting flavors (12 to be exact!), but the ones available here are Cheese & Herbs, Sea Salt, Barbecue, Sour Cream & Onion, Sizzlin’ Jalapeño, and Wasabi . They’re still deep-fried in corn oil, which means they’re not exactly the Patron Saint of Healthy Snacks. But if we’re going to indulge our basest cravings… well, we might as well let loose with something this delectable.
HOW DO THEY TASTE?
Speaking of flavor, just how tasty are these? Well, let me put it this way: I was never big on tortilla chips, but catching just the slightest whiff of these changed all that. Right out of the bag, they smelled so good, my mouth started watering.
Wasabi was my instant favorite: each chip carried just enough of the root’s distinct flavor without making my nose run.
BBQ is another standout: smoky and mildly spicy, it’s pretty much the sauce in chip form.
Jalapeño tastes exactly like fresh jalapeño peppers, minus the tongue-numbing hotness.
Cheesy Sour Cream and Onion marries all the components mentioned in an addictively savory concoction.
Cheese & Herbs is a straight-up umami bomb, with its herbiness coming through.
The last, Sea Salt, provides the perfect base for dips—but it’s good on its own, too, especially if you’re not big on flavor dust.
WILL I HAVE ‘EM AGAIN?
Yes, I will! The only question is whether or not I could stop myself from having them again (and again). Trust me, I’m exercising every ounce of self-control not to repurchase just yet. But after chowing down on six whole bags of these (with the rest of the BeautyMNL team, of course!), I should at least try to hit pause on my newfound addiction, right?
