This is the latest alternative chips snack available in leading Philippine supermarkets and hypermarkets. I have never tried cassava chips until now, and I can say that the taste, as well as the texture is interesting and can surely be an alternative to potato chips.
California Crunch Cassava Chips come in two flavors, Barbecue and Soup Cream & Onions. The Cassava Chips Barbecue flavor has a sweet taste at start but ends with a spicy finish. As soon as you try a chip, the sweetness dominates your taste buds; but when it fades away, the spicy goodness comes in. Just the way I like it! I never knew that Cassava Chips can be this interesting and yummy. It gives an interesting combination. You really have to try some to understand and get a first hand experience of the taste and sensation :)
The other one is the Cassava Chips Sour Cream & Onions flavor, an "American twist to an Asian Snack." Sweet and tangy tastes combine with sour cream and onion goodness. If you're familiar with Sour Cream & Onion on potatoes, it's similar to cassava chips also.
The California Crunch Cassava Chips are packaged like any other chips snack in the market, at 120 grams per pack, and costs Php 44.50 only. Personally, I like the Barbecue flavor more than the Sour Cream & Onions. I feel that the flavor is more natural and it strikes a balance between sweet and spicy flavor, just the way I like it. The other flavor, is a little bit nakakasawa, or maybe it's just me. Try it!
