Review of Eat Real Chilli & Lime Quinoa Chips

Whilst doing a recent online shop with Ocado I felt I should recheck their free from section just in case I had missed any new dairy free treats to try. I stumbled across Eat Real quinoa chips in a larger size. In addition to this there were a couple of flavours that I had yet to try. I fancied something different so opted for their chilli and lime flavour.

I liked the simple brown packaging with the splashes of vibrant green to co-inside with their lime flavour. The picture of a scattering of the chips with amongst a chilli and lime made me want to dive straight in. Onto the ingredients list they are clearly labelled as being gluten free and labelled as suitable for vegans and therefore suitable for dairy free me. No allergens were highlighted on the ingredients list and there is no may contain warning.

On opening the packet I was greeted by a fairly strong aroma of chilli, I was unable to distinguish the lime element to these chips. This did not change on my famous close up sniff test. The chips themselves were of a good size and had a good scattering of flavouring on them. On picking the chips up they looked light and airy and left no residual on my fingers. On biting into the chips there was an initial crunch this was followed by a light slightly airy texture unlike eating a typical crisp. As for the flavour well if I am honest all I could taste was the kick from the chilli, which a little stronger than I anticipated. Sadly, this simply seemed to drown out the lime element to these chips. Which is a real shame, because they probably would have become my chilli flavoured savoury snack of choice.

So would I recommend these quinoa chips? Yes I would. I really enjoyed their light fluffy texture and the kick from the chilli gave my taste buds. It’s just a shame that the lime element was simply lacking. I will certainly be buying these chips again. So thank you Eat Real for producing a savoury snack that I can enjoy. So if you follow a dairy free, gluten free or vegan diet give these savoury snacks a try.

      They are very nice.

    Ooh they look yummy. Shame it wasn’t overly lime flavoured as I imagine that would be delicious! My little one doesn’t tolerate lentils very well so would be interested to see if she can tolerate the lentil flour in these. #freefromfridays

      Hi, I hope you find these to try and your little one can tolerate them. They do make a great savoury treat, they do have a little kick though. Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely weekend.

    I like this brand, but I’ve not tried this flavour. Shame the lime isn’t so strong, if I spot them I might try them though. Still like the sour cream flavour best though πŸ˜‹

      Hi, thank you for taking the time to read my latest food review. These chips seem to be very popular. I’ve not tried the sour cream ones yet, but I shall add them to my to try list. I hope that you enjoy this flavour, Chloe.

    Another trick for ensuring a product is daily-free without reading all the ingredients or allergeb warnings: If there is a kosher symbol with the word “parve,” you can be certain there is no dairy.

        Good old typos 😊

      Hi, great thank you that too much appreciated, Chloe.

      Hi, I just checked and yes you can get them in Canada. I hope you can find some to try.

    Found these at the Allergy Show & really like them but not seen the chilli & lime flavour! Sounds yum – off to find some! x

      Hi, I have like all of their chips I have tried so far. Not sure how I missed them at the allergy show. I hope you find these ones to try, Chloe.

    I used to love my online shops with Ocado (haven’t done it in ages) as they’ve got lots of ‘free from’ brands we love and also they tend to have more variety than any other shop. Thanks for joining in with #FreeFromFridays again lovely! x

    Looks so yummy! Makes me want to try it❀️ Great post!

      Hi, thank you for taking the time to read my latest food review. Sorry if I made you hungry πŸ™‰, Chloe.

    I’m craving these after reading your post! They’re so nice, I love them.

      Hi Ciara, thank you for taking the time to read my latest review. I’m sorry if I gave you a craving. I hope you have some near by to eat. If not I’m sorry, Chloe.

    These crisps are so good! πŸ™ŒπŸ’•

    • January 30, 2017 / 7:05 pm

      They sure are 😊

    These sound a bit disappointing. Tostitos hint of lime chips are my favorite tortilla chips EVER, so I’d’ve been just as sad as you that the lime flavor of these was drowned out by chili. I do like the texture of quinoa chips, though!

      Hi Emily, yes it was a shame about the lime element I need to find another brand to try. At least they do several other flavours I enjoy, Chloe.

    Oooooo these sound amazing! They sell these in my local holland and Barrett but I’ve never been brave enough to try them πŸ’–

    • January 30, 2017 / 7:08 pm

      Hi, thank you for taking the time to read my latest food review. Eat Real do a range of crisp style crisps, you should grab a small packet to try. Let me know what you think, Chloe.

  12. January 30, 2017 / 5:39 pm

    Ooh these sound really good! I love trying new things so I’ll have to add these to my list!

      Hi Abigail, thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my latest food review. I hope you enjoy these when you get to try them, Chloe.

      Hi Tasha,
      I hope you enjoy these especially if you like a kick with your chips, Chloe.

    Haha at work we were talking about how everything healthy has quinoa in it now. I love the way you can still have the snack power of munching of crisps (shhhh) but feel virtuous about it! Fantastic. #MarvMondays

    • January 31, 2017 / 6:44 am

      Hi, yes quinoa is in a lot of food these days. I used the same excuse that they must be healthy as I munched on them 😊.

  14. February 1, 2017 / 8:41 pm

    I have had other products from this brand before but not these, I will have to see if I can find them somewhere

    • February 1, 2017 / 8:49 pm

      Hi,
      Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my latest food review. I still have more flavours of this brand of chips to try. I hope you can find this flavour to try. Holland and Barrett tend to have more choices. I hope that this helps, Chloe.
