The brand claims that these contain 40% less saturated fat when compared to other potato chips. We tested all the variants to gauge their taste, texture, and nutritional label. Are these worth a purchase?
Let’s decode everything in our Too Yumm Potato Chips review.
Our Review Factors
What are we looking for? We expect crunchy chips with a fresh taste that are true to their flavor tags.
For a detailed review of each variant of Too Yumm Chips, we have listed the following set of parameters :
We checked for the level of salt, spiciness (if applicable), and the overall flavor. Any prominent taste of oil? Are these addictive, or did we stop after a single bite?
We also check here whether the chips feel oily or greasy. A prominent crunch signifies that the chips are well fried, packed, and stored.
3. Main Ingredients
As mentioned on the pack, these chips contain 40% less saturated fat, as compared to other potato chips. Unlike other brands, Too Yumm Potato chips contain rice bran oil. Hence, we closely examine the list of ingredients and nutrition labels. We also check for the use of any preservatives, stabilizers, or additives.
Potato chips made using palmolein oil tend to have a higher saturated fat. Whereas, chips made using rice bran oil contain a higher proportion of unsaturated fat, making them slightly healthier.
The brand claims that these chips contain 40% less saturated fat. As per the pack, potato chips fried in palmolein oil contains 14 gm saturated fat. While those fried in rice bran oil contain 8 gm saturated fat. Too Yumm has used rice bran oil in all the 5 flavors.
4. Other Observations
Who loves a bag of broken chips? The shape and size of the chips can help enhance the overall experience. How appealing do these chips look? Did we observe too many brown edges?
Many times potatoes might undergo rough handling which leads to the formation of bruises on the surface. This eventually turns the starches into sugar. Though the sugar is invisible in raw potato, these turn brown when the potato gets fried.
Packaging & Price
Is the packaging resealable? How competitive is the pricing? Does it offer a value for money deal?
For how long are these chips ideal for consumption?

Indian masala is a blend of different spices, including coriander, cumin, turmeric, red chilli, and chaat masala. But that was not the case we experienced here. These have a spicy, salty and tangy flavor.
In terms of the overall taste, these chips lack the wow-factor. Although we liked the cumin-coriander flavor, it lacks the prominent spicy-tangy hit we expect from a bag of chips labeled as ‘Indian Masala’. As we consumed a little more chips, we could taste an unpleasant oily flavor.
Though these are not soggy, the crunch could have been better.
- We appreciate the earthy flavor of coriander and cumin.
- It lacks the masaledaar taste.
- The crunch is medium.
- The oily flavor was a letdown.
- It has a low level of salt.

Kashmiri Chilli is known for lending a vibrant red color without making the dish too spicy. Hence, we expected these chips to have a mild flavor of chilli.
