Bingo Street Bites Are A Treat For Your Tastebuds (2023)
We tried two variants of Bingo Street Bites and here’s what we think.
Our reviews are research-based, and all trials and testings are conducted in-house over days and weeks. We have a strict no-free-sample policy to ensure our reviews are fair and impartial.
If a cafe mocha can be savoured as ice cream, if pizzas can be relished as bite-sized pockets, why not certain items of the extensive Indian street food menu?
This might probably be what the R&D team at Bingo thought about when they launched the Street Bites range. For our Bingo Street bites review, we ordered two variants- Paani Puri and Dahi Chaat.
Which did we like better and why was it Paani Puri?

Our Review Factors
What were we looking for in our Bingo Street Bites review? The flavors and crunch were our primary parameters. We also gauged the price, packaging, and other non-tasting parameters.
Paani puri and Dahi chaat are distinct flavor profiles. There’s a mix of spicy, tangy, savoury, and sweet flavors which makes them appetising. Under this parameter, we checked to find how well these chips replicate those flavors and whether or not it is something we would go back for.
What was the texture of these chips like? Was the crunch bold or subtle? Did these feel oily on the palatte or fingertips? How well is the masala coated on the chips?

Bingo Street Bites Flavours – Detailed Review
Of the two variants, Paani Puri was the collective favorite. Detailed explanation is given in the following section.
1. Pani Puri twist
Price + Packaging
60 grams of these snacks are priced at Rs 30/-. They are packed in an orange and blue pack. This is not resealable.
Refined wheat flour (maida), Seasoning (refined palmolein, Iodised salt, Sugar, Spices and condiments, Dextrose, Black salt, Tamarind powder, Natural flavors and natural flavoring substances, Green chilli powder, Dehydrated parsley and nature identical flavoring substances), Refined palm oil, Dehydrated potato flakes, Stabiliser, Sugar, Iodised salt, Emulsifier, and Natural flavors and natural flavoring substances are all ingredients used.
Aroma + Appearance
These chips are quite thin, have uneven edges and a slightly elliptical shape. Bingo Paani Puri chips have an appealing yellow hue and some minute red flakes. Most pieces were broken but that did not affect the taste.
The aroma was fresh, slightly herby.
Taste + Texture
TOOTHSOME! These chips replicated the classic golgappa flavors exceptionally. They were spicy and tangy. The flavor profile of paani puri’s pani, specifically with the minty herbiness had us going back for seconds, until we emptied the pack.
The crunch of these chips was prominent which also spoke for its freshness. No complains in either of the aspects.
- Beautiful replication of flavors
- Commendable balance between spicy, tangy, sweet flavors
- BOLD crunch
- Most pieces were broken
Can you have Paani Puri on-the-go? Now you can, with these golgappa-flavored chips by Bingo.
2. Dahi Chaat remix
Price + Packaging
The price and net quantity are identical to the above variant. Dahi Chaat remix from Bingo Street Bites comes in a sea green and purple-colored pack.
Refined Wheat Flour (Maida), Seasoning (Refined Palmolein, Iodized Salt, Sugar, Natural Flavouring and Natural Flavouring Substances, Nature Identical Flavouring Substances, Dextrose, Spices and Condiments, Milk Solids (0.3%), Black Salt, Dehydrated Parsley and Tamarind Powder), Refined Palmolein, Dehydrated Potato Flakes, Stabilizer (INS 1412), Sugar Iodized Salt, Emulsifier [Diacetyltartaric and fatty acid esters of glycerol (From Sunflower & Palm Oil)] and Natural Flavours and Natural Flavouring Substances are all ingredients used.
Aroma + Appearance
The yellow hue here was deeper than that of papdi. We could see some black specs on the chips.
Taste + Texture
The crunch was as good as that of Paani Puri chips from this range. As for taste, this was comparatively more sweet, and had that innate chatpata-ness. The flavors you taste from a plate of Dahi Papdi were effortlessly replicated here.
This is to say that complete justice was done to the flavor tag, but this wasn’t as tasty as Paani Puri variant.
All our reviewers voted for the golgappa variant as a better pick between the two we tried.
- Nice balance of flavors
- Prominent crunch
Sweet chips laced with some tangy and spicy flavors? We recommend Bingo Street Bites in Dahi Chaat.
