Triangle, Round, and Rectangle

Hi J -

Why yes, that is all three shapes of Mission Restaurant Style chips.


G and I have have our preferences in crunchy snacks. He is (was?) a Lay's Potato Chips guy. I am a tortilla chips that comes in a brown bag + chipotle salsa person. When G wanted tortilla chips, he would get Tostitos Scoops. I remember a conversation four of us had last summer, when we were on the gucamole (!!!!!!!!!!) kick, how each of us have our favorite brand and shape.

A few weeks ago, when you served surf and turf fajitas, you had Rounds, I was (only slightly) surprised N and G both prefer the Rounds - something about the shape and the ability to scoop salsa and the fit of the shape in your mouth. (I think G has come around to the brown bag tortilla chips.)

So, I bought some triangles (I already had Rounds and Rectangles) and did a unscientific blind taste test with G. Here is the result:

  • He correctly identified the rectangle, but switched the triangle and round
  • Rectangles have the "best crunch", breaks easily
  • "Rounds tastes better"
    *the Rounds were a different colour than the others, not sure, may they differ batch from batch

In conclusion, he said he would sacrifice taste for better texture.
