Manomasa – Tortilla Chips with a difference?

, , Leave a comment

 
I love finding new products. Even better when I find a product I’ve known about for a while but never seen on shelves. Enter Manomasa, I will admit I came across this brand when I was in college doing research for complimentary products to go with salsa, back when they had only launched. 
 
Manomasa seems to have taken the UK market by storm for a quality tortilla chip while still being affordable. In fact, they’ve just launched three new flavours into their range so they must be doing something right. 
Within their 6 flavours they have 3 types of chips, Totopos, Super Scoop and the Sixer all different shapes for different uses. 
 
I finally found these in Get Fresh Rathfarnham for €2.99 a bag. Which ain’t bad considering Doritos are around €2.70 when they’re not on offer and not in an independent store!
 
 

 

I found the Chipotle & Lime smell very reminiscent of Pringles BBQ flavour, so that was a little off putting but otherwise they have great crunch, a lovely hum of heat (but not overpowering) and different flavour than what I’d be used to in a tortilla chip, or a crisp for that matter. What really stood out to me is that these cry out for some fresh salsa to be dunked in. 
In Mexico they have this Chili & Lime Powder that they put on EVERYTHING, like fruit, breakfast everything. And that’s what this kinda did to me, it reminded me of that product, I have to get another bag to try it out with fresh fruit/fruit salsa.

 

 
As you can imagine, the first thing that springs to my mind is these bad boys I ate far too many of when I was younger. Thankfully I wasn’t ill and hadn’t any bad flashbacks. I really liked these & D loved them (as he does with anything cheese flavoured!) but again they cry out for dips!
 
Will I buy them again? Yes! Will I try other flavours? Yes!
Will I make sure to have an abundance of salsa at the ready next time? Hell yes!
 
What’s your favourite thing to munch on? Do you prefer sweet or savoury?

Have a great week guys!
