The Tastiest Cheese & Potato Snack – Mishry Reviews

Potato-Cheese bites (frozen) are supposed to have the perfect blend of crunch on the outside, mixed with the savory flavor of cheese inside. In this review, we look for the tastiest brand of potato-cheese snacks in the Frozen Foods market.

We believe few pairings work as well as potato and cheese. No matter how to cook them, together, they are perfect for each other! We cooked multiple batches of Potato+Cheese combination snacks (frozen) from 3 top brands. After two days of cooking and tasting, we can tell you that ITC Masterchef’s Cheesy Corn Triangles are the tastiest Potato-Cheese, ready-to-eat, snack in this segment.

Why ITC Masterchef Cheesy Corn Triangle Is Our Top Pick:

When you are looking for a cheese-based snack, you obviously want more cheese. Cheesy Corn Triangle has the right mix of potato and cheese to make it ‘cheesy’ enough.

The potato is nice and soft, but not mushy. You get three distinct textures: crisp exterior, soft potato, followed a gooey cheese.

The addition of capsicum (very little) and corn (agian, used very sparingly) adds to a good mix of flavors that work well in every bite.

We also loved how well-formed and ‘finished’ these traingles look. Instantly giving it a premium feel, but at a pricing similar to the contenders.

Our Review Process:

A surge in the demand for frozen packaged foods means that there are new variants and flavors every day. From plain aloo-tikkis to chicken cutlets, patties, samosas, and french fries – the frozen food market is growing every day. We chose to review Potato-Cheese snack variants because it is hugely popular among kids and vegetarians.

We picked brands that have readily available snacks with a dominant potato and cheese combination. We picked products as long as these two ingredients were clearly present and displayed on the packaging.

Brands We Picked

McCain Potato Cheese Shotz

ITC Cheesy Corn Triangles

Yummiez Cheese Corn Nuggets

How We Picked Our Brands

It goes without saying that ITC, McCain, and Yummiez, are some of the most popular brands in the frozen food market. Every superstore you go to now has an extensive frozen foods section, and you cannot not find these three brands. These brands also have potato-cheese bites/shots as part of their regular vegetarian fare. All three fall in a similar price range, and so can be put to the same standards of testing. Apart from that, these brands are known to have good quality products and make for trustworthy contenders for our review.

Who This Is For?

Frozen foods can be quite a help when you are looking for something quick and hot. When you have large gatherings, adding some of these to a large menu can add variety. For people, who often have unexpected guests, or host gatherings frequently, keeping a stock of ready-to-eat snacks in the freezer can help time and effort.

Furthermore, cheese-potato snacks have a unique flavor that is a blend of the savory gooey texture of cheese along with the thin outer crisp layer of the fried exterior. People who enjoy these could also find this review helpful.

We do not promote frying foods as a regular/everyday snacking option. Deep-fried foods, when consumed regularly, can lead to a variety of health issues like obesity and heart problem. However, we also recognize that frozen foods provide a particular convenience that is hard to miss. The ultimate choice rests with the consumer whether to go for these foods or not. Our review, in no way, promotes unhealthy eating. In fact, for this review – all contenders were shallow-fried and not deep-fried. Further, we would encourage the readers of Mishry to opt for pan-frying instead of deep-frying.

How We Tested – Our Parameters

There was nothing much complicated in our review process this time. It just involved a basic taste test, after which we tasted the contenders based on the following parameters.

The Filling: Filling has a lot to do with the end-taste of products. Some of the most common ingredients added to potato cheese shots include corn, capsicum, and spices. However, it is the quantity and balance of these ingredients that make the difference.

 The Crust: The crust is the signature characteristic of any fried food. It must be evenly fried so that it tastes good and looks appetizing as well.

Taste: The final equalizer. In the end, all the other parameters add up to the overall taste of the product. Thus, the one which tastes best would end up as our Top Pick.

The Result Of Our Taste Test

ITC Masterchef Cheesy Corn Triangle is, without a doubt, our top pick amongst the contenders. Every bite had that moist-cheesy texture along with the slight crunch of the outer skin. The potato was very much creamy, which complimented the gooey cheese. With just the right amount of cheese and potato, ITC Masterchef Cheesy Corn Triangle is not only the tastiest, each piece (triangle) is well-formed, with no crumbly bits falling off, making it also look appetizing.
