Taste Test & Ratings
Now that we know a bit about PeaTos, let’s see how they taste.
Classic Cheese Crunchy Curls
Once you crack open a bag of these, you’ll get hit with a scent reminiscent of Cheetos. Each piece looks pretty small with not much curl to them either. I’m hoping they’ll taste better than they look.
Trying one out, I enjoy the crunchy nature of these curls. You can taste the pea flavoring (similar to those popular pea crisps). The cheese flavor is very subtle in that you can taste it for a split second before it’s gone. Cheeto fingers are a thing with these as well.
Fiery Hot Crunchy Curls
Cracking this one open, it smells very much like barbeque chips. Taking some out, they look dull compared to the previous curls (which I hope doesn’t affect the taste). However, the shape does look a bit more like a curl.
The good news is, there’s a kick to them. I couldn’t taste the peas in this one, unlike the classic. The taste is different from what you may expect as there is a hint of sourness (perhaps from the vinegar?). It does taste a bit like buffalo sauce. No red fingers though!
Zesty Ranch Crunchy Curls
Probably my most anticipated flavor out of all the curls. Opening the bag, you get a faint ranch smell. They look similar to those shrimp chips you can buy at Asian supermarkets too. Curliness-wise, they’re not very curly with many curved or straight ones.
Taking my first bite, these were super crunchy! They also have the most prominent flavor out of the curls. It resembles a watered-down version of the Cool Ranch Doritos (with cleaner ingredients). These are easily the best out of all the curls. No hint of peas either.
Classic Onion Crunchy Rings
The onion bags are a bit bigger than the curls. Upon opening this, there is a very oniony smell similar to fried onions. In terms of appearance, they do look smaller and thinner than traditional onion rings.
One prominent characteristic of these snacks is the crunchiness. These also pack quite a crunch! I enjoyed the onion flavor as it tastes pretty authentic. You can’t tell these are made from peas either.
Fiery Onion Crunchy Rings
In this one, there’s also an onion smell but with an indescribable twist to it. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a lot in the bag. The good news is, these rings are redder than the spicy curls. However, they bear a similar size to their non-spicy sibling.
Again, the crunch is nice to hear when biting down for the first time. There’s also a decent amount of kick with a slight onion aftertaste. I also tasted a small hint of sweetness, but it mainly consists of spicy flavors.
