REVIEW: Ruffles Ridge Twists – The Impulsive Purchase

Ruffles Ridge Twists Bags

Everybody’s favourite ridged chip, Ruffles, goes out on a ridge – er – limb and bringing us a brand new tackle the ribbed potato snack. Debuting in Double Cheddar and Smoky BBQ flavors, Ruffles Ridge Twists try to put a spin on the corrugated traditional.

From their look on the package deal, these seemed to me like braided pretzels, however in actuality, they’re extra like fusilli pasta or Fritos Twists. This looks as if a foolish level to make as a result of the shapes are very comparable, and I don’t suppose Frito-Lay was out to trick me. I simply didn’t anticipate that these have been going to be extra of an extruded puff than a potato chip. Please don’t ask me how I anticipated them to braid potatoes.

Double Cheddar

Opening the bag of Double Cheddar Twists sends up a robust aroma of cheddar popcorn which may be very attractive even when it does seem like somebody has poured a batch of Cheetos Mac ‘N Cheese into my chip bag. The spirals are generously coated in vivid orange powder that actually delivers a buttery, tacky style.

What doesn’t ship is the twist itself. It’s crunchy, however not in the identical satisfying approach {that a} chip is, and it doesn’t have the suitable potato taste. One thing is off, and a look on the components reveals the primary one to be dried potatoes. This is sensible when you think about the product is extra of a puff, however as a result of they’re marketed as “that includes the identical iconic Ruffles ridges that followers know and love,” I hoped for the bottom to be nearer to what I do know and love. I wouldn’t be mad if I went to some gathering and grabbed a handful of those to placed on my plate subsequent to a sandwich, however they aren’t a snack I’d purchase for myself and eat straight out of the bag. The cheddar half is on level, however after solely a few them, I discover myself not desirous to eat any extra, and this very not often occurs to me with salty snacks.

Smoky BBQ

The scent from the Smoky BBQ bag doesn’t draw me in fairly as a lot. I discovered it barely off-putting at first, however after tasting, it’s a fairly strong barbecue chip taste. As marketed, it’s smoky and slightly candy with some tomato and vinegar notes. A few of the twists have plenty of seasoning, however others have solely a dusting which leaves an excessive amount of room for the dried potato style and texture to take middle stage. These remind me of the luggage of TGI Fridays snacks with flavors and shapes that mimic objects on an appetizer menu. They’re novel, and it’s my obligation to attempt each type of processed potato accessible, however on the finish of the day, I want I’d additionally purchased a bag of precise chips.

Ruffles Ridge Twists Both

Although these have grooves good for gathering taste powder, they lack the identical ridges that actually outline Ruffles and may’ve fared higher with me if I by no means related them with Ruffles to start with. I can see the place some folks may get pleasure from them greater than I did, however if in case you have 4 {dollars} and wish to take an opportunity on one thing new within the chip aisle, I’d go together with Lay’s Kettle Cooked Fritos Chili Cheese Chips.
