Opimus Banana Joe Chips

This has got to be one of the weirdest crispy snacks in the history of crispy snacks!

Tall Elegant taste tester went to the health food shop and came back with these banana chips. Crispy thin layers of banana chips flavoured with Gruyère cheese. Premium golden bananas - apparently they use hom thong golden bananas which I didn't know was a thing, and over two bananas per packet are handcrafted into these chips.

They certainly are thin, and crispy, if not somewhat sharp and pointy. And some taste of Gruyère cheese while others do not. Basically I couldn't fancy these chips. I felt they tasted of soap. Not even exciting soap; just that plain white soap that people with sensitive skin use.

This is a shame.  Because obviously someone has put a lot of thought into choosing exactly the right kind of cheese to match their fancy golden bananas. You don't just choose Gruyère at random or put the Swiss flag on your packet for no reason so it really is a shame that these chips are not nearly cheesy enough. Or bananary enough come to that. 1    Although, having said that I do rather feel that banana and cheese is a dead weird combo. what about you?

Tall Elegant taste tester ate most of her packet, ably assisted by Giraffe Fan  who told me she really liked this crispy snack, and nobody else mentioned the taste of soap. So just me again?
