Chaayos Suji Rusk Review – Crunchy & Tasty Tea Time Snack

Chaayos Suji Rusk Review – Crunchy & Tasty Tea Time Snack

Chaayos Suji Rusk are crisp and delicately sweet.

Rusk is best paired with a steaming cup of masala chai and the latest gossip. Rusks have a very rustic look and feel, and are often considered as a very tapri-style snack. These are so popular that almost every other bakery makes its own. Several large biscuit and cookie brands also cater to the rusk demand in the market.

Chaayos is a brand that is associated with all things chai. Earlier we reviewed its instant tea premix and chai masala and loved them. Even though their chocolate cookies didn’t fare well, we wanted to try out more from their tea accompaniment range.

We picked a box of Suji Rusks by Chaayos to test it for its taste and texture. Our Chaayos Suji Rusk Review discusses its price and packaging as well.

Chaayos Suji Rusk review

1. Ingredients 

Ingredients include – Refined wheat flour, Sugar, Edible vegetable oil & fat (palm and sesame), Suji (5.5.%), Yeast, Salt, Milk powder, Flour treatment agent.

Allergen advice – contains gluten, milk and soya.

2. Taste

The list of ingredients does not mention the use of cardamom at all. But we could clearly smell and taste the sweet, floral notes of green cardamom. 

The sweetness levels are mild. So if you’re consuming these with a cup of tea containing sugar, it won’t become unbearable. 

3. Texture And Crunch

You eat rusks for the crunch it provides when you pair it up with a cup of chai. Imagine! You open up a new pack of rusks, but it is soggy and lacks crunch. 

Suji Rusks by Chaayos are crisp and have a pronounced crunch. These are well-toasted rusks, and did not feel dry at all when we tried them by themselves.

4. Price and packaging

Chaayos Suji Rusks come in a blue and white box. A 400 gm box contains 20 packs of rusks and is priced at Rs 400/-. Each pack contains 2 rusks, weighing 20 gms (Rs 20/-).

These are single-use packs with 2 rusks each. This packaging is very convenient as you need not worry about air-tight storage every time you rip open a new pack of rusks.

At 400 rupees for a 400 gm box, this may not be economical for all.

The only thing that went against it in our review is the price point. Rusk is such a loved tea accompaniment in India that people of all pocket-sizes enjoy this on a daily basis. The Rusk by Chaayos may not be an economical buy for a large part of that audience. For many, this is not a pocket-friendly option for everyday use.
