|Some thicker tzatziki sauces include|
juicy thin chunks of cucumber.
The tzatziki seasoning is effectively lathered upon ruffled chips which proved to be thick but not crunchy- they exhibited a more pliable ‘soft-styrofoam’ texture which, though not nearly as bad as it sounds, will disappoint anyone who values voluminous crackle-crunch sounds in their eating experience. The crisps also proved to be amazingly large- one of the chips we found was so long it can only be described as pornographic.
|Not a photoshop. That was at least |
5 inches long- the chip, I mean.
These chips are part of the ‘Exxtra’ product line, but though I liked the seasoning, I did not find that it was boldly applied- they could probably have doubled the quantity and it would have tasted just right. Starting with a flavoring that’s already going to be intrinsically mild (yogurt sauce with parsley) and I think it’s hard to justify the ‘Exxtra’ title, about as appropriate as a documentary “Badass Xtreme style English Gardening.”

The mildness aside, however, I enjoyed the unique flavor they were going for and the satisfying size and thickness of the ruffled crisps, and they proved a delightful supplement to an evening picnic in a Budapest park.
Spiciness Rating: None
- Evocative and unique flavoring
- Could use more seasoning; does not merit the ‘Exxtra’ label
- Some may be dismayed by the low crunch-factor
