Phileas Fogg Mexican Taco Rolls – Nacho Cheese & Jalapeno (Sainsburys) [By @SpectreUK]

These new Nacho Cheese & Jalapeno flavour Mexican Taco Rolls by Phileas Fogg came in a 190g bag. Each 30g serving contained 157 calories, with 0.9g of sugar and 8.8g of fat. The ingredients contained no artificial colours or flavours and the Taco Rolls were made with 100% sunflower oil. The ingredients included maize, dried processed cheese, paprika, turmeric, salt, sugar, yeast extract, dried onion, jalapeno pepper, cumin, red chilli pepper, dried garlic, citric acid, chilli powder, dried parsley and oregano. The rolls had impressive curled shapes and were about four centimetres long. I’m sure Phileas Fogg used some new fangled equipment or machine to make the Taco Rolls, but probably could have done the job just as well winding them around an old pencil (seeing as though not many people seem to use pencils for writing or drawing anymore...). Their flavour started with a strong cheesy taste followed by a mild jalapeno spice, which in no way tingled the tongue or left me gasping for air or cold water. However the front of the packet never promised nose tingling burning heat from these Taco Rolls, so I wasn’t disappointed by the lack of burn in the flavour. There was also a heavy paprika and garlic aftertaste mixed in with the cheese and jalapenos. As you can see from the photograph, I enjoyed dipping my Taco Rolls into mayonnaise, but you could try dipping them into a hot chilli, tomato salsa or even guacamole (if you can find a Gremlin to put in a blender).
