Tesco Free From Onion Rings 150g
I have to be honest; I did not have high hopes for the Tesco Free From Onion Rings. After the utter disaster of the cheese balls my expectations were low. I’m very happy to say that I’ve been pleasantly surprised!

Smell, Taste & Texture
If you stick your face in the bag, you’re not going to get a noseful of strong onion smell. According to my partner you also can’t smell the onion rings from just being around the bag. Bonus!
The taste is … strong. Really strong. I’ve eaten the Tesco Free From Onion Rings in small little batches. When you first eat the they’re really rather sweet, and then the flavour mellows out, but it sticks around. The first time I ate these I had to brush my teeth afterwards because the taste was just too strong. I’ve gotten used to it the more I’ve eaten them, but compared to other free from crisps there’s a lot of flavour.
The texture is really crispy, and flaky – something I’ve not had too often in crisps before. However, the odd one of the Tesco Free From Onion Rings will feel like it’s dripping in oil. Now, I know
I must admit I’m reasonably surprised! The Tesco Free From Onion Rings are rather good compared to the other crisps in their free from range. I don’t think I’ll order them often, just because they’re rather high in fat for me, but I’ll definitely order them again!
If you miss onion rings, these are a good alternative! Granted, the Tesco Free From Onion Rings are the only ones I’ve found that I can eat, but they’re rather tasty.
Would you buy, or have you already brought the Tesco Free From Onion Rings?
Also ‘free from’* does not mean the product definitely doesn’t’ have the ingredient, but that it’s not listed. Personally, I tend to try products, and then see if they cause a reaction.
