Salted Egg Chips Blind Tasting! 😎

Battle of Irvins VS Golden Duck

I'm sure I'm NOT the only one who is excited to finally find out once and for all which brand is better.

So I say, enough is enough!

Let's do a blind taste and get the results of which chip is better, shall we? 😜😝

Thoughts on Golden Duck πŸ€”β˜οΈ

First up, everyone should be very used to seeing Golden Duck appearing on my page.

I live for brown bags and cartoon illustration. This package to me is 100% up my alley and beautiful!

Granted the one downside with this packaging is I cannot see what is inside? Like a kinder egg (I love that shitty chocolate egg!! 🐣)

But there's always Google to help, lazy people alright?

Thoughts on Irvins πŸ€”β˜οΈ

Major thanks to my sweet @snoxydonkz who was so kind to gift this to me so I can finally try and compare! πŸ˜˜πŸŽ‰

I adore the cute sticker label that states "Warning: EXTREMELY DELICIOUS" ... Really makes me WANT to try it even more!

Seeing all the chips through the clear plastic container is a major plus. Also, hard container means the chips are less likely to be crushed unlike the Golden Duck flimsy brown packaging.

Both brand's expiry date is clearly displayed which deserves thumbs up! πŸ‘πŸΌ

Price Talk πŸ’ΈπŸ’°

Golden Duck is priced at $7 per packet and Irvin's is $15 per container.

With differences of $8, it basically means with ✌🏼️packets of Golden Duck = ☝🏼️bottle of Irvins !!

Is bottle of Irvins chips more than Golden Duck? Yes, it's a soild amount.

But does it work out to be x 2 more than Golden Duck, personally my guess is that it's about 150% more. πŸ˜…πŸ˜¨

You judge for yourself on the value for money part because I care more about the TASTE! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜œ

TIME FOR BLIND TASTING!! πŸ™ˆ

To make sure this is fair, I pour the chips into bowls so people can't tell via packaging.

This is bowl A.

This is bowl B.

I know most of you who tried both can already tell by the color differences HAHA

Because I can. Then again, I'm a chips addict who can take a buzzfeed's quiz and correctly guessing the different brands.

Remember 21 Oct entry titled "My Junk Food Confession"?πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…

Rolling out the Guinea Pigs! 🐷

Here's one of my kind colleague (happily) helped me in this test.

"Don't take my face ah!!"

He prefer Bowl B because it is sweeter and more flavorful. Also, he commented that the Bowl A is paler in colors and less intense.

Here's my dearest @cherryap aka my work BFF/secret sharer/ranting outlet/ smoking buddies (consisting of her smoking and me watching *cough*🌬)

Ok back to main topic, she also prefers bowl B for it's sweeter and spicer chips. Bowl A was less flavorful, salter and pale in comparison for her.

She also had tried a couple more bite to be sure .... Or maybe she really enjoys it HAHAHA πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚

Another colleague prefers bowl A because she prefer something less flavorful and plain so naturally she like bowl A.

"Please don't take my face ah. Body ok! "

I GET IT. Promised not taking the face, people HAHA πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ˜‚

This colleague also likes bowl A because she prefers salty over sweet.

"You know me, I like salty. Don't like the sweet one!"

For her, it was a quick spilt second decision. The moment she pop one into her mouth and she gave her vote to bowl A!

My last tester for the day casted her vote for bowl B!

She likes that it that bowl B has a spicer, richer and sweeter taste compared to bowl A.

What did I vote for? πŸ˜‚β˜πŸΌοΈ

After carefully tasting both, I went with bowl B!

I like the color that it's more yellow like how salted egg items should look like. 🐣

Then again, the color differences might be due to the choice of oil use, fresh or recycled. OMG I feel like a pro HAHA πŸ·πŸ˜‚

Bowl B is more distinct and more flavorful as mentioned by everyone. Spicer and just pure addictive. CRUMBS ALSO PLUS!πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Bowl A didn't work magic for me ... It almost feel like a salty chips with abit of salted egg. What a shame! 😱

4 votes out of 6, Bowl B = winner! πŸŽ‰

This is bowl B, GOLDEN DUCK!!

Have you guessed it right? They have so much crumbs bits OMG πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Of course this is the proper way of eating it.

With a spoon to scoop up all that goodness! πŸŽ‰πŸ˜πŸ˜±

This is how the Irvin's chip looks like .... And have you spot something?

Look carefully ...... No, it's not a crack on your phone.

YES WTF you're right @jaslinyap

I found a FUCKING HAIR in my salted egg chips?!?! 😭😱

NOPE, this really ruin my first time with Irvin's. Given a second chance, I'm not sure I would buy or recommend them to others. πŸ˜¨πŸ™„

Feeling gross and disappointed, I blasted them a quick email to let them know my dismay.

I must say kudos to them for replying my email so quickly and readily doing service recovery!πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

But I think my trust is shaken with their hygiene level .... Wouldn't you be as well?

EWW I HATE FINDING GROSS STUFF IN MY FOOD!! πŸ™„πŸ˜‘

Conclusion!☝🏼️

If you are looking for an awesome OVERPOWERING salted egg experince, go for Golden Duck.

If you like cereal prawn, you will like Golden Duck because it's similarly tasting = SHIOKNESS of sweet and savory πŸ˜πŸ˜šπŸŽ‰

If you prefer a lighter tasting, go for Irvin's! Also if you are looking for halal options, pleased to inform you that they are halal. β˜πŸΌοΈπŸ˜‚

Girls, ORDER FOR SALTED EGG IS NOW CLOSED TQ!

This time, it's gonna be $8 per packet for labour and service fees ok? Take it as my KOPI money!!! πŸ˜‚

Collection is tomorrow 2PM onwards from One Raffles Place's lobby area (beside one altitude), near ATM. Min order is 2 packet per customer!

@cherryap need to order 5 packet so it was meant to be, you girls are lucky!

Just to proof how responsible I am to my clients .... SEE EVERYONE GOT THEIR CHIPS OK? πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
