Review of Well & Truly Tortilla Chips

Every now and again I fancy tortilla chips as a savoury treat. Sadly many are not dairy free so it can be a difficult finding ones to try. On my recent visit to The Allergy and Free From Show in London I popped along to well & Truly’s stand. I was suitably impressed so I decided to buy a packet of their tortilla chips to take on holiday to share with my mum.

I liked the simplicity of the of the packaging with its simple triangular designs in blue, yellow and grey. There is a label to the top of the packet with their logo with the clear wording underneath that they are gluten free. The chips are made from corn flour, corn oil and salt. There are no allergens highlighted on the ingredients list and they are labelled as being gluten free and suitable for vegans.

On opening the packet I got a fairly non descript aroma of a plain tortilla chip which reminds me of maize. This was just what I had hoped for. This got a big thumbs up from me as other plain tortilla crisps I have tried have emitted a salty aroma, which I personally find a tad off putting. I checked the bottom of the bag as I now do with all tortilla chips that I try and no greasy residual was noted. On biting into the crisps there was one consistent texture apparent. This was slightly crunchy. It was like I was eating an everyday tortilla chip. Some gluten free brands that I have tied have been a bit powdery in texture. These definitely didn’t taste like they were gluten free. Onto the flavour this was spot on it was plain and non descript perfect for a plain tortilla chip. My taste buds didn’t get hit by that unwanted saltines. After consuming a few I checked my fingers and no greasy residual had been left on my fingers. We had these tortilla chips as part of a buffet lunch. We found them to be highly moorish and I was personally disappointed that everyone else enjoyed them because I had to share.

So would I recommend these tortilla chips yes I would. I really enjoyed them as a savoury treat. It was nice to be able to have a plain tortilla crisp that was neutral in taste and I mean this a positive way and not overloaded with salt. So if you are dairy free like me or follow a gluten free or vegan diet why not give these a try. Thank you Well & Truly for producing a nice packet of plain tortilla chips that both my mum and I can enjoy as a treat.
