South Korean snack brand, Good Life Finute has made their debut in Singapore. They have four flavours namely, Corn, Crab, Garlic Shrimp and Banana Yoghurt (that’s really weird).
We managed to get a hold of two of their flavours – Garlic Shrimp and Crab. We found them at NTUC Finest for the cost of $9.90 each.
For those who are health conscious but still want to enjoy the good life, here’s their calorie count per serving (30g):
- Garlic Shrimp Chips – 150 kcal
- Crab Chips – 160 kcal
Each bag weighs 240g and the bag of chips is really big. The packaging comes with zip lock which is convenient to stash it away once you had enough.
We reviewed them based on the quantity, quality of the chips and price to see whether or not they made us feel like we were living a good life. (wink wink)
When we opened the packaging, we found that the chips were half full. We expected it because most bag of chips are packaged as such. It wasn’t disappointing though as the quantity was a lot. Here’s our verdict on the taste:
Garlic Shrimp Chips
At first chip, we could taste the shrimp, followed by the hints of garlic. There was a familiar taste. It’s like those prawn crackers that you’d get on your plate when you order nasi goreng kampung or ayam penyet. However, unlike those oily and drying ones, these garlic shrimp chips are smooth and not oily at all.
The flavour of the chips were plain but rich. It was a simple snack that had the strong shrimp flavour which made it addictive.
Garlic Shrimp Chips scored a BRUTALLY APPROVED.
At first chip, you can taste the light crab seasoning. There were also patches of red powder on each chip which could basically just be a marker to show the difference.
The crab taste wasn’t prominent at all and there was a stronger shrimp taste. This was confusing because it was suppose to taste like crab. With the packaging and the red powder, we thought that it might even taste like chilli crab. Well, it didn’t.
So, the red bag of crab chips didn’t didn’t anything like crab or chilli crab but more of shrimps. Yes, in the ingredient list ‘shrimp’ was part of it however, we feel as though we were just eating the Garlic Shrimp chips without the garlic. This bag of chips was much more saltier compared to the first one.
Crab Chips received a BRUTALLY DISAPPROVED.
In conclusion, for quantity-wise, both passed with flying colours because the amount of chips in each bag was satisfying. As for quality, Garlic Shrimp passed while Crab didn’t. This is solely based on our tastebuds, if you have an opposing opinion, go ahead and share your thoughts in the comment section.
Garlic Shrimp really made us feel as though we were having a good life. It’s the type of snack that you snack on while binge watching your Netflix shows. As for the price, it is really on the pricey side.
A bag of 240g chips that cost $9.90?? You could simply get those uncooked ones and fry them on your own for a much cheaper price. However, these ones are probably worth it if you don’t want to spend that effort.
