Kirkland Signature Tortilla Strips Review
This Costco house-brand tortilla chip was acceptable to all of our testers, hitting the sweet spot for texture and thickness. The chip proved a good foil for salsa but its unusual rectangular shape drew mixed appraisals.
Produced by Texas-based Mission Foods, Kirkland Signature Tortilla Strips, a Costco exclusive, come in 48-ounce bags that sell for $3.59, or slightly more than 7 cents an ounce.
Kirkland Signature Tortilla Strips reviews by our 11-member tasting panel showed them to be a solid hit, good enough for a top showing in our hands-on comparison of 14 chip varieties. Well liked by a majority of tasters for their crispy texture and toothsome thickness, the chips were shunned by none even as a few Kirkland Signature Tortilla Strips reviews decreed them a bit heavy on the salt. The unusual rectangular shape was a pleasing novelty to most testers, although several held steady in their support of the common triangle-shaped chip.
Despite their wide availability at Costco locations throughout the U.S., Kirkland Signature Tortilla Strips reviews by consumers were few and far between. One blogger from Los Angeles who posted comments at Losanjealous lauded the "earthy" texture and deep corn taste with the barest hint of lime. He conceded the advantages of dipping with a rectangle (long enough for that, um, unhygienic double) but also expressed a preference for the more traditional chip shapes.
The only division that surfaced in Kirkland Signature Tortilla Strips reviews concerns the amount of salt gracing these crisps. Most were fine with it, some not. Overall, though, this is a chip you'll be proud to serve. And most importantly for frugal consumers, the per ounce cost was the cheapest of any of the chips we sampled.
