ALDI – Clancy’s Guacamole Tortilla Chips – Food Review

If you need a guacamole fix, these are unlikely to satisfy.  As a chip, they’re okay and in some ways sort of a mild Doritos.

Rather than have the flavor sprinkled on as an afterthought, these chips seem to have the flavor “baked” into the flour of the tortilla.  In addition there’s still the traditional sprinkle of seasoning coating the chips.  There’s a faint hint of guacamole in the flavor.  As a flavored chip, the flavor is not objectionable. These, or at least this bag, do not taste overly salty.   And like almost any chip, you’re likely to eat many more of these than you should.

ALDI – Clancy’s Cinnamon Churros – Food Review

If you like cinnamon and sugar you’ll like these. Think of this as very light French toast in a bag. The wheat based churros are crisp, airy and light, fried into a spiral shape about 2 inches long and 3/4 inches around.  Crunchy, sweet and not overly spiced with cinnamon, it’s hard to put these down.  And that’s the only problem, it’s so easy to eat the whole bag (3 servings per bag) at once.  That would put you back 360 calories for the day and still wanting more.

ALDI – Clancy’s Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips – Food Review

I needed to buy two bags of these chips to do this review.  The first bag had very little seasoning. The second bag had more seasoning, but still on the light side.  In other words, there wasn’t very much of that sour cream and onion flavor in either bag.  Other than the seasoning, these are nicely done chips – thin, cooked perfectly, and not very salty.  At $1.39 per bag they’re not much more than a 1 ounce bag from a vending machine.  But if you’re looking for that sour cream and onion flavor, you may be disappointed with these chips.  Calories  150/1 ounce (about 13 chips)     Price $1.39 per 9.5 ounce bag

Kettle Chips – ALDI

If the package wasn’t different I wouldn’t know these were not the same chips as the Trader Joe’s chips reviewed last week.  That’s three “nots” in the same sentence.  To say it more clearly, these chips seem to be from the same supplier as the similar Trader Joe’s chips, except for one thing, these have more flavor.
