I love chin chin, seriously..I do.

So when the chance came to review LOVE CHIN CHIN, I was very excited! I have seen this product floating around the social media waves but haven't had a chance to taste it.

Chin chin is a fried snack popular in West Africa. It was created in Nigeria. It is a sweet, crunchy, donut-like baked or fried dough of wheat flour, and other customary baking items- google

I received four different flavours, Vanilla, Chilli, Lemon and Cinnamon.

So I popped each bag open and gave them a try!

Chin Chin was there by the bowlful at family celebrations. When the celebration was over, we'd wait until next time round for our Chin Chin fix. We tried desperately to manufacture occasions. "I just won second place in the cross-country race mum" but she wasn't having any of it. That sort of thing does not wash with Nigerian mums.
"When you win first prize, we'll celebrate," she replied.-


First impressions....

I have had chin chin, that is less biscuit-y and more crispy. Maybe there are different recipes, but these taste a lot like shortbread, which was a bit disappointing.
As for the flavourings, there wasn't enough!! I expected to taste more chilli, so my tongue could tingle. I love heat in my food. I asked my mum to try them, just incase my tastebuds were a bit off..and she agreed with me.

 serving suggestions
Some like it hot – why not microwave in a plate for 5 seconds and enjoy that comforting home-made feel.
Dessert topping –Add some extra crunch to your ice cream or yoghurt
Pudding or pie base – Crunch up those Chin Chin’s into the perfect biscuit base for a cheese cake or banoffee pie -

I was really excited about this product and was disappointed. I expected something different. Now don't get me wrong, they are tasty, just not chin chin, as I know them to be. More of a chin chin I did finish them all, because they are yummy!!
