Torres Truffle Chips Review

Torres Selecta Black Truffle Chips – S$2.95 (40g)

  • 125g version for S$6.95 also available

Bag itself contains a lot of air, as can be seen from the puffed up looks of the packaging, but has sufficient portions of chips for 1 serving.

What is extremely notable is the ingredients used to make this chips. It only uses 5:
Potatoes, sunflower oil, salt, dehydrated black summer truffle (T. aestivum Vitt.) and truffle aroma.

Chips itself are sliced very thinly – making for a nice crisp.

As for the taste, it really depends on personal preferences for Truffle Oil. While the chips had good crisp, eating one felt like I was licking a thin layer of truffle oil, with a very distinct flavor of the oil, with an almost sickly oily texture to boot. Considering the popularity of the oil, it is without a doubt a flavor that some might like.

Rating for Torres Black Truffle Chips

I rate food based on how far I am willing to travel, as well as whether I think the price I paid for it justifies it. You can read more about why here.

Travel-meter:

¬†Personally, I wouldn’t be paying attention to this anymore, but if this is stocked up in your local grocery store, you can consider trying it.

 

Worth-it-meter:

 Of course, it could be personal bias against the truffle oil, but $3 for a small bag of chips is in my opinion below the value I should be getting.

But I’m just a fat boi… What do other people think?

Like what do I know the other people all like it so much.

The Media

ChipReview gives it a 4/5 (lipsmacking), impressed with the truffle flavor but hoped for more in terms of the actual potato chip.

TheForkingTruth seemed to like it, but only at the rate of 3 chips every time he ate over a period of a week.

FoodSchmooze seem to really like it, with the title post being “World’s Most Extraordinary Potato Chips”.
