Frit Ravich Sabor a Salsa de Aperitivo
It was quite brave of Frit Ravich to place the giant word ‘Premium’ in dominant gold letters. I opened the bag to be greeted by a gold lining, so there was certainly a premium image created straight away. The chips were curly, gnarly and reddish in colouring, which was also as good as it gets. I was expecting a good old spicy tomato style salsa, but what I found was a fishy vinegar taste. This prompted a rare visit to the back of the packet and a review of the flavourings. Cockle, fish, spices and aromatic plants. I didn’t really know what to make of it, but they were so sharp my face screwed up at the first swallow. This is not a good thing. Food should not make you grimace, even if you don’t know what it should taste like. However, mine is not to judge personal preferences, but to consider the flavour description. The clever thing here is, the picture was just a bottle with some dark red sauce in.
Frit Ravich Premium Chips
The black and gold bag was attractive and certainly fit in with the ‘Premium’ description. Working with the only other wording as a direct translation didn’t work for a flavour description: “Flavour texture elevated to the maximum. Your tastiest moment.” They were traditional, plain and unseasoned. The open bag was more surprising – It was also gold in colour. If this was an impressive start, how did the taste stand up? There was a dusky, look and feel to the gnarly and well-cooked chips, but they did not taste overly greasy. There was undoubtedly an original, traditional taste to them, and brought home the moreish quality that makes you want to go back for more.
Frit Ravich Premium Queso do Cabra y Cebolla caramalizada (Goat Cheese & Caramlised Onion) Chips
The blue and gold bag stood out, as did the impressive gold colouring inside. There was a hint of caramalised onion when the bag was opened, which was promising. The sweetness was the first hit of taste. This was followed by inference of caramalised onion. The backdrop was undoubtedly goat’s cheese. If that was the first impression a few more chips and the flavour impressed. They were, perhaps, just a little too sweet, but the taste was consistent with the description, and a good addition to Frit Ravich’s Premium range.
