Taco Bell cheddar crisps

I came across these Taco Bell Cheddar Crisps at Walmart, and I was immediately drawn to them. I mean, who doesn’t love Taco Bell?

When I looked at the nutrition facts, I was very impressed by these as well:

Taco Bell Cheddar Crisps nutrition

A snack with 160 calories and 14 grams of protein is really solid. And a snack that tastes like Taco Bell?! Yeah, I’m sold.

If you decide to eat an entire bag (which is not very large) you’re only looking at about 300 calories and getting nearly 30 grams of protein.

If you’re keto, these fit the bill as well, which is awesome.

But keto or not, we’re focused on taste here. So let’s see how these Taco Bell Cheddar Crisps hold up to a taste test…

Taco Bell Cheddar Crisps

First up: Nacho flavor. Considering there’s a bunch of spices in the ingredients, I was really excited to see if these tasted like actual nacho cheese and not just regular cheddar.

The bad news: these taste like plain cheddar cheese.

The good news: they’re pretty delicious.

The overall flavor reminds me of a Cheez-It but with a more intense flavor (similar to the Quest Cheese Crackers) and they have an extremely satisfying crunch.

If you’re keto, these are an awesome substitute for regular cheese crackers. I thoroughly enjoyed eating them, but they don’t resemble “nacho” flavor at all.

Based on the nacho flavor, or lack thereof, my expectation for the “taco supreme” cheddar crisps was immediately lowered.

With a photo of a Taco Bell Taco Supreme on the package, they are clearly marketing these cheddar crisps as resembling a taco.

Well…. they don’t. At all.

In fact, if you did a blind taste test, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between these two flavors of cheddar crisps.

Maybe the Taco Supreme flavor is slightly milder than the Nacho, which seems like the opposite should be true, but otherwise, they are identical products.

If you’re expecting taco flavor like Quest was able to capture with their taco-flavored protein chips, you’re going to be extremely disappointed in these.

All in all, these are tasty cheese snacks, but they are in no way Taco Bell products outside of the packaging.

Buy these if you want a low-carb & high-protein cheese snack, but don’t buy them if you’re expecting them to taste at all like tacos.

REVIEW: Taco Bell Cheddar Crisps
These are delicious cheddar crackers, especially if you are keto, but they do not resemble anything Taco Bell related in the slightest. Both flavors just taste like cheese. They're good, but it's clearly just a gimmick selling these as a Taco Bell product.
