Fun Flips Potato Chips – Our Review Factors
We reviewed the Fun Flips Potato Chips on different parameters including appearance, texture and how these packaged chips taste.
Chips that score well on this parameter seem to have won half the battle, because who wants a bag of broken chips? We checked how visually appealing these chips look and how well the masala covered the chips. Are the chips intact or are there too many broken pieces?
The hero of the entire review process is the taste. We examine the levels of salt, spiciness and use of oil. Are these chips too oily? Are the salt levels well balanced? Spices, tang, sweetness, or all of the above? Any prominent taste of a particular seasoning?
Do the flavors mentioned on the bag, deliver taste-wise?
An important factor while reviewing potato chips – crunch! The whole experience of indulging in packaged chips will be a fail if they aren’t crunchy.
The perfect crunchiness of packaged chips is a sign that these are well fried, packed and stored.
4. Freshness and Quality
Freshness and quality are the other two factors that we took into account for our review process. How fresh did these chips taste? Is it fried in good quality oil? Does it taste, feel or look too oily?
