I am so excited to bring you a review with one of my affiliate programs from Deep River Snacks called Honchos. This is a brand new company that I am working with and I am excited to taste their products and give you my honest feelings. For full disclosure, yes this is a program where I can get paid. Like everyone else, I need to make money to live. Blogging is part of my income, but I would never partner with anyone that I wouldn’t personally use or trust. I will promise to give you my honest thoughts. If I don’t like it, I have no problem letting you know why. It could be a personal taste, or something that doesn’t work for me, but I can see the value in it for other people.

There is a trial snack package of Honchos that you can try for free. I was given one by the company for my opinion on the chips. I will make sure to put links down below so you can get yours for free as well! The package came in a few days in a sturdy box, containing three, 1.5 oz bags of chips. Honchos are certified organic, contain no MSG and has no dye! As much as I love snacks, this is something that I should be eating instead of the other stuff. If you don’t know me, I love me some chips! They also give 10% of their proceeds to different charities. Their stories appear on the back of the bags so you can also check those out as you try out your free trial. The chip to air ratio is average. Meaning when you open the bag, you will get about the same amount of chips in the bag as you would expect in another other snack package of chips. The flavors that I got were Ranch, Peach habanero, and Nacho Cheese. Let’s break down each of my reactions
Ranch Flavor Honchos :
I have not been known to be the biggest ranch flavor chip fan. I picked up the bag, which feels thicker than the average chip bag. I do the smell test right as I open the bag, and a deep breath. I was delightfully surprised by how pleasant the smell was that filled my nostrils. My first reaction was, fresh! The second was that there was a lot of flavor. If you read the bag, it says, “Exploding with Ranch Flavor.” It also smells like the fresh tortilla chips flavor so I was a bit excited to see what it tasted like. The taste was amazing! The Ranch flavor was rich and not overwhelming. I immediately starting planning to make this part of my taco salad later on. Although I am not a huge fan of the ranch flavor, this wasn’t bad at all. I would get this again. One a scale from 1 to 5, which is the highest, I will give this a 4 out of a 5. I was pretty surprised that the ranch tasted as good as it did!
Peach Habanero Honchos:
Now, I was pretty nervous about trying out these chips. I am not good with heat at all. I try to avoid it at most costs because I have acid reflex. The combination of the peach flavor really intrigued me so I decided to try one chip and see how it went. The smell was very peachy, and I couldn’t detect any spicy smell. This means that either it is going to be milder than I thought, or much worse. The package said it was medium heat which also scared me. But this is for you, Underdogs, and I am going to give you my honest review! After staring at the chip for several moments, I went ahead and took a tiny bite. First, I was hit with a wonderful peach flavor. It actually didn’t taste fake or chemical at all. It wasn’t overly sweet either. Then, the heat came! It snuck up on me and I thought I had somehow gotten to avoid it. I ate the rest of the chip to see what would happen. I felt the heat on my tongue and on the inside of my cheeks. The peach flavor did help tame it down, but that heat was still there! I give this a 3.5 out of 5. The reason is because I don’t like the heat. If you do enjoy heat, you will like this chip. I really, really enjoyed the peach flavor and hope that it might be in another flavor combo.
Nacho Cheese Honchos:
The last bag of Honchos chips in the package was Nacho Cheese. I was super excited and nervous to try these. My favorite flavors have to do with cheese so the stakes here high with this chip! The smell was very light. I took a bite and my immediate reaction was, “YUMMY!” This was so good! It tasted so good, and I wanted more! The taste seemed like there was more than one type of cheese at work. It was very fresh, and very good. This, by far, is my favorite out of the three flavors that I was able to try. I give it a 5 out of 5!
All in all, I think these chips are pretty good. I would get them again. I know what you are thinking, Underdogs, aren’t you getting paid to say this? No, I am not. I got the chance to get paid for this, but these thoughts of mine are given in an honest fashion. I won’t steer you wrong, and I don’t like the product, I will let you know. I wasn’t a huge fan of the Peach Habanero chips. If I came across them in a store, I wouldn’t get them because I have such a hard time with spicy things. Even though I enjoyed the peach flavor, it is not enough to make me want it again. I can see how many would enjoy this, especially if you like salsa with fruit. I loved the Nacho Cheese Honchos, and the Ranch was very good. I would make these part of my regular chip rotation. Because, I love chips a whole lot! I encourage you to try out the free trail.
Are you asking what the catch is, because nothing is free? You will need to put in a credit card number. If you cancel before the end of the free trail, you will not have any sort of charge on your card at all. You will need to pay attention to the date you place your order, and how long the trial is, which is a week, I believe. What I do when I want to try a free trial is the following. I look at the information about the promo. I then look to see how easy it is to cancel if I want. That is available in the FAQ section. I don’t like a whole lot of work to stop a service if I don’t want it. Deep River Honchos makes it very easy. In fact, they even send you an email reminding you that your trial is almost up if you want to continue, or cancel. I still count the number of days between the start of the trial, and when it will be up. I then put a reminder in my phone one day before the very last day of the trial. This is a reminder that if I want to continue of my service, then I might want to update my card information. If I decide that I no longer want this service, I will then cancel my trial and move on.
