Well we have!
Before actually bitting into Corazonas, a big whoooooaaaa. A big claim on the bags of the products we received: Proven to help reduce cholesterol. What? these look like snacks and breakfast food.
Well, in that case bring them on. We have a few family members battling cholesterol either with medication or watching their diets and exercising.
Now, we are excited. We set out to invite those affected to a taste test.
Before our taste test, a bit about the products and the company:
Made with ingredients proven to help lower cholesterol. Corazonas are delicious
snack foods proven to help lower ldl (bad) cholesterol. Corazonas potato chips,
tortilla chips and oatmeal squares are infused with plant sterols, which are
proven in more than 140 clinical studies to help fight heart disease by lowering
ldl cholesterol. Corazonas foods, is a private company categorized under
tortilla chips. It is a small company of real people with a hearty appetite and
appreciation for life, driven to create delicious, heart healthy snacks. Many of
us have been personally touched by heart disease and have made it our mission to
spread our conviction – that you can eat your heart-healthy snack and have it
taste great too.
The name stood out to all of us, perfect mix: Corazon means heart in Spanish, so it really spoke to this mostly Hispanic group of "tasters"
We received oatmeal squares and tortilla chips.
First on the oatmeal squares. This is what our "tasters" said:
Now on the Tortilla chips
- convenient and portable size
- generous size
- great that I don't have to think twice about eating this for breakfast or snack
- everyone liked the taste of them: just like a snack, not like cardboard or a health food
- The big winner of flavor out of the good variety of flavors we received was the banana walnut.
The truth is that the Tortilla chips were the big winners of the taste test. It was difficult choosing a flavor as a winner out of the lime, black bean 7 cheese, and the lightly salted. The 3 bags emptied very quickly!
- Wow! thicker than regular tortillas
- Very flavorful!
- Great size for dipping, resistant so they won't break
- Taste very natural, I can taste the corn
