Toy Story Cheesy Tortillas (Tesco) [By @cinabar]

Last month I wrote about the new Toy Story cereal bars that have arrived in Tesco. Under the same Toy Story branding, and also as a lunch box snack, we now have Cheesy Tortillas in the range.
These snacks still have all the Disney branding, and do look smart. The smaller bags also have the characters on them so they look nice individually too. I do have a weakness for Disney, so thought the branding was quite sweet.
I found the cereal bars to be quite mild in flavour, and I assumed that this was because they were aimed at more child friendly taste buds. It was a bit of surprise when I tried these and found the flavour to be really quite strong. There is a fair amount of intense cheese flavour, and a salty aftertaste. The crisps took me a bit by surprise, but they did grow on me the more I ate. The base was decent and had that nice tortilla flavour through and through. Not a bad snack by any means, they were just a little stronger in taste than I was expecting. I can’t really complain, what else would you expect from a product called “cheesy” tortillas?

It's about time that products lived up to their flavours. I'm tired of eating things with a lack of flavour. For instance, with Macaroni & Cheese, I often have to put in the whole package of cheese in half of a pasta serving!!!
Imagine all of the calories and sodium! This is why I usually use a hunk of Velveeta.

I don't think I've ever tried Velveeta... just had a google, and I'm going to have to see if I can find if it is sold anywhere here - sound like ace stuff!
