Review of co-op Turkey & Stuffing Christmas Tree Tortillas

I popped into my local co-op yesterday to pick up a few essentials to tide us over until the New Year. Whilst picking up my essentials I noticed a stand of festive tortilla chips. I had a quick glance as so often flavoured tortillas are not an option with my dairy free diet. I saw suitable for vegans so grabbed a packet and popped it into my shopping basket. I have to admit to being a tad excited Christmas may be over but I could try these festive savoury treats.

Onto the packaging I liked the purple colour scheme subtle Christmas decorations and the small bright star to the centre of the front of the packet. Onto the ingredients list no allergens are highlighted ingredients and there is no may contain warning. Oh they are also labelled as being suitable for a vegan diet.

On opening the tortillas I noted a faint aroma which I would describe as Paxo style stuffing that I associate with Christmas. This didn’t change on my close up sniff test. The tortillas are Christmas tree shaped and had an even distribution of flavouring noted on them. On biting into the tortilla there was a nice crunch noted. The texture is what I would describe as a regular tortilla chip. This was slightly different to what I expected as they do not contain any wheat and this can often result in a tortilla having a slightly different texture. Onto the flavour to be fair I wasn’t sure what to expect when I purchased these tortillas but after opening the packet I expected them to taste like stuffing. I could definitely taste the stuffing element to these tortillas. It was spot on the flavouring was subtle and not to strong or artificial tasting. I didn’t experience any flavours relating to turkey. This didn’t matter at all. The flavour of these tortillas exceeded my expectations. Onto another positive note the tortillas didn’t leave any greasy or powdery residual on my fingers. This is personally a big bonus for me.

So would I recommend these tortillas? Yes I would. The flavour was spot on. They were not greasy, had a good crunch and didn’t leave a powdery residual on my fingers. Most of all it was great to have a flavoured packet of tortillas that I can enjoy. I know they are marketed as being a Christmas snack, but they have a good best before date and can be enjoyed at any time of the year. It’s just a shame that they are a seasonal treat. So if you follow a dairy free or a vegan diet why not give these tortillas a try. So thank you co-op for producing a flavoured packet of tortillas that I can have.

    These look amazing! I’ve never heard of stuffing flavored tortilla chips, but now I’m dying for a bag!! Who even needs the turkey flavor when you’ve got stuffing?
