Arnott’s Shapes Mini Bites Chilli Cheese

Well, after a brief hiatus, we’re back with the next in the new series of Shapes – Chilli Cheese. Now, chilli. I like chilli. Oh yes. Love a spicy curry, a hot chilli, some fiery snacks. Oh yeah. And cheese. Cheese is good too. Love some strong cheddar, a tangy stilton or a creamy brie. Yum.

Bu chilli and cheese together? This I am less sure about. They just don’t seem to be quite the thing. Yes, I know about nachos. But even so. Chilli and cheese just seems like something that won’t really work. So how does Arnott’s manage this difficult marriage?

On one level, admirably. There is a good cheese flavour here, nice and rich. And the chilli is also there; these are probably the most spicy Arnott’s snack I have ever tasted. They even have little flames emblazoned on each biscuit to warn you. the junior Chillikebabs struggled with the heat, So this is pretty good stuff.

But. In the end, it is what it is. Chilli and cheese. Two flavours that just don’t really work together. So in summary, they taste exactly like you think they will taste. Like cheese and chilli, both fighting it out on the palate, but never joining in a harmonious blend.

I’m going to give these a 5 out of ten, plus a bonus point for trying.
