So this is my first review! And I’m kick starting my blog with a review of Beanitos.
If you haven’t heard of them, they’re a company that makes chips. But instead of making the chips out of potatoes, they make them out of beans. It’s actually kind of cool. You can go to their website here.
I’m an Inflenster, which means that I get send free products to sample in exchange for a review, hence the blog. But even though I got this product for free, all opinions are my own and not influenced in any way. Influenster is a really fun program and anyone can sign up. So if you want to check out more about that, you can do so here.
Now onto the review.
I got two different flavors to sample; Restaurant Style, and Nacho Cheese. To be honest, I only tried the Nacho Cheese one. It was a 1.5 oz bag and I was a little bit surprised when I opened the bag. There were what seemed to be only a handful of chips! But fine, whatever. Maybe that’s for packaging purposes and keeping the chips whole, which many of them were.
The chips were the typical triangle shape and closely resembled Doritos. The chips also didn’t have that typical crunchy bite to them either. They were fairly soft and tasted heavy, like they had been deep fried. They tasted okay enough, but you could definitely tell that you weren’t eating normal chips based on the texture, lack of crunch, and taste. I really couldn’t decide if I liked them or not by the first bite, and I still felt that way after I had just taken the last bite. The chips were simple just “okay.”
Now the part that really turned me off, and will probably turn you off as well, was the aftermath. As you know, these chips are made with beans. Beans can make one EXTREMELY bloated and gassy. And that’s exactly what happened to me. These chips really did not agree with my digestive tract and let’s just say there was much flatulence to be had. It was terrible. That’s the reason why I haven’t opened the second bag, and I don’t think I will. It was just too much for me to deal with.
My overall rating of these chips is a 3/10. They don’t taste terrible, just okay. But the aftermath of intense gas isn’t worth eating a bag of these sub par chips.
So that concludes my first review! I hope you found it helpful and stay tuned for the next one!
