FIRST BITE: IS THE CHIN-CHIN BY LONGE FOODS WORTH BUYING?
I was doing my weekly shopping at Shoprite so I wandered into the aisle with biscuits, chocolates, drinks and all other ijekuje when I stumbled into this product. I love trying new things because how else would you have a new obsession if you don't try something new?!
I initially picked up one pack of the Chin-Chin and Bobo picked another. When I got to the till I realised they were different flavours....how did I miss this? I quickly sprinted back to that aisle and picked a third which turned out to be the Coconut flavoured Chin-Chin. Couldn't wait to try them!
Anything coconut flavoured I love so I tried this first. I couldn't really taste the coconut in it. I was a bit disappointed. I wanted to feel a crunch also as I chewed the chin-chin but sorry, no crunch. So I opened the Peanut flavoured pack.
The peanut flavoured Chin-Chin was my favourite of the lot. It tasted like groundnut and cabin biscuit. Is that good or bad? Anyway, I loved it! Still no crunch, this was when I accepted that it was soft chin-chin. I prefer my chin-chin hard and crrrrrunccchhy...you?
The last one I tried was the original flavoured one and it was my second favourite. My brother liked it too. So no complaints. Interestingly the coconut flavoured one was supposed to be my favourite but nah.
They were also reasonably priced-less than N50 per pack so if you ever go to Shoprite look out for this, you may like it especially if you're all about the soft chin-chin kinda life.
