Noshkes "Pizza"

Badatz Paskesz

At first, I couldn't figure out what the deal was with the shape of these little wheels. My first instinct was that they looked like the pawns for a game of Trivial Pursuit. Then I realized that they're probably supposed to look like little pizzas after that I thought it was kind of clever. After biting into one of these Noshkes, I also liked the shape because it gave these a unique texture that really put out a crunch. It's funny that some shapes can change the way something crunches. I can't however give all the credit to the shape for the crunch. The cracker/chip was really firm and not too full of air at all, so in tandem with the interesting pizza shape, the crunch was really satisfying.

The flavour of these Noshkes Pizza is fine. I've said it before but when it comes to "fake" pizza flavours, I'm not really a big fan. For the most part I find that it's hard to replicate such a complicated food, so why even try. Pizza might be a common food, but when you think about the layers of flavour and texture that make it great, it’s actually a really complicated flavour to reproduce. Most of the time it doesn’t work, and unfortunately these Noshkes didn’t quite make it.

It’s also worth noting that these snacks had loads of pizza flavour on them too, they where just completely encrusted. I really think they could have gone a little lighter on flavour to highlight the amazing cracker base, that may have improved them all around.
