Product Review - Dang Foods Onion Chips

~ Posted on Tuesday, July 5, 2016 at 3:32 PM ~

I have been cutting down on doing product reviews since 2014 and what more with baby #4 on the way this end of year, all the more I need to be particularly picky and selective with the products that I'm reviewing. Not that I'm trying to be hard sell, no, definitely not! But with 3 kiddos + 1 on the way, being a housewife at home with kiddos all the time and helping out with hubby's business, I just feel it is not fair to make companies and PR reps wait for my reviews while I slowly review and look for time to spare to draft out my feedback you know? But of course, like I said, I have to be selective, so products that we can definitely fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or homeschooling stuff, family products, something along those genre) will be accepted! Today's review is on Dang Foods Onion Chips. Read on....

Dang Foods Onion Chips

About the company & products:

"Our founder, Vincent, launched Dang Coconut Chips in 2012 after his mother gave him a recipe for Miang Kum, a Northern Thai lettuce wrap that requires toasted coconut. At the time, he was working as a sustainability researcher and moonlighting as a street vendor for the SF Underground Farmer’s Market. Vincent made the dish, tasted the toasted coconut, and then immediately called his family in Thailand to find more because it tasted so good. With that, a new company was born. Vincent decided to name it Dang after his mother since it was her recipe that started it all.

Our onion chips are made from whole onions - never corn meal - so go ahead and enjoy our crispy delicious caramelized onions knowing that you're eating nature's original superfood. Onions have been enjoyed for millennia and can decrease the risk of certain cancers as well as reduce inflammation and lower the risk of asthma. Real, simple goodness to add to your daily snack routine or your favorite recipes."

I received the following products for my review.

Dang Foods Onion Chips

The Dang Foods Onion Chips comes in the following flavors:

- Applewood BBQ

- Chipotle Garlic

- Salt -n- Pepper

- Sea Salt

The first thing I take note when it comes to reviewing food products is of course the safety of the products. Each Dang Foods Onion Chips pack comes in a resealable bag making it easy to close, seal and continue to enjoy the freshness of the chips the next time you plan to continue snacking hahaha...

I carefully cut off the top portion of the first pack I decided to try, which is the Dang Foods Onion Chips in Sea Salt flavor. I took a peek inside and snapped this picture below. Most of the chips are still perfect in size, there are bit of crumbs or crunched up pieces (which is likely due to shipping from US over to where I am in Malaysia) I immediately got a whiff of onions!

I took out a piece of the onion chips and tried to take a small bite. Crispy, cruncy and fresh definitely. Then I realised the whole chip is a slice of crispy caramelized sliced onions! I actually thought this is some kind of potato chips with onion flavors but nooooooo, these chips are all onion slices! And even though it is sea-salt, it doesn't taste salty at all. Good!

Now I am not a person who enjoys onions on its own so the most I can take in a seating for this Dang Food Onion Chips are 4 pieces, that's the max. Then the onion smells and taste gets too overwhelming for my tastebuds.

I gave a packet of each flavors to my brother-in law to try and he said he likes the Applewood BBQ flavor the most but like me, he too agree that after about 5-6 pieces of the chips, it gets too overwhelming for him (and he is a really health conscious person!)

You can read more info about the chips from the website link below, but some keypoints you need to take note are these chips are non-GMO project verified, vegan (except the Applewood BBQ flavor which contains honey granules), as onions are the ingredients, they are a good source of fibre, and gluten-free.

So I guess for my review based on my personal preference, if taken in small quantity it is enjoyable, a healthy snack option but the onion taste really gets stronger the more you eat, so if you can tolerate that, all is good!

In summary, a healthy snack option which you can either enjoy just by itself,

or as a side dish or as a topping for salads, soups and sandwiches !
