The best falefel chips ever because they actually TASTE like falafel
on August 7, 2016
These may be the best Falafel Chips I've ever eaten. First of all, ignore anyone whining about them not being thin enough or not enough like a Lay's Potato Chip or whatever. If they'd ever eaten real falafel they'd know that what they want is completely uncharacteristic of the dish. It's like ordering a T-Bone steak and complaining that 'it doesn't taste fishy enough'.
I ordered these because my wife loves falafel chips and the local grocery store quit stocking her previous favorite. Since I'm a good husband, I ordered her a few different brands from Amazon and elsewhere. The first few bags we received were just 'OK'. For example, I'm eating another brand that they sell here at Amazon and elsewhere--I'll refer to them as 'Brand X Chips'--and they're not a bad eating chip. Of course, they taste almost nothing like falafel. You can get a faint chickpea note if you pay attention but it tastes more like a multigrain tortilla chip than anything else.
These chips ACTUALLY TASTE LIKE FALAFEL. They even have a falafel like aftertaste and a faint spice kick to them. To anyone griping about that I'll point out the 'hot and spicy' in the item description. You can identify the ingredients (all natural BTW) by taste. They're also baked and not fried. Anyway, these are the best falafel chips I've ever had. If you like falafel you'll like these.
