Grain Waves just aren’t hitting the same.
I opened my pack of grain waves that I purchased from my local Woolworths and all I can say is I was very disappointed. The first chip lacked crispness and flavour. After eating the first grain wave I was hit with a wave of remorse, the chip made my moth dry and left a butter taste of disappointment in my mouth. I truly hope that the packet of grain waves I have purchased is an outlier and that the crisp and zesty taste of grain waves chips has not been tainted. However, after the disappointing performance of these grain waves I am unlikely to purchase them again. I’m sorry but you have lost a customer. Not the worst chip I have had though.
No flavour in sweet chilli (bland) ?
Sweet chilli grain waves I just purchased have no flavour at all. Very disappointed. This is the second time. I wont be purchasing anymore nore will I be promoting them to any friends or with the sporting community when hosting events that they would be a good snack food to share.
Purchased in February 2019 for A$5.00.
Just pruchased 2 bags of Sweet Chilli grainwaves .... usually love this product ... but any semblance of flavor was totally missing ....I'm assuming it was a production malfunction ... but quality control should have picked up on this. Tried to send them an email but the link from their website wouldn't go thru ...so I had to resort to this to get the message they to them
Wheat is healthy as a breakfast cereal to start the day with fuel-packed energy besides nutrition, but as a lunch at work every day for another refuel - Grain Waves with buttered white or wholemeal sandwiches, and maybe some parsley, is most probably the fast lazy way to have an energetic meal without soggy vegetable salad like lettuce, as I tend to consume calories like there's no tomorrow, since my job as a walker during 6 - 8 hours depending on fine weather, 5 - 6 days a week, taping curtains & blinds flyers on windows or brickwall of new h...ouses under construction in busy sites in Keysborough, Officer, Pakenham, Clyde North and Cranbourne aiming at interested tradies or homeowner. Competition is tough and I in my middle age just need to stay positive as there are more than several companies fighting for customers even if income is tight.

New twist on ridge-style chips
As someone who has always preferred the ‘ridge’ type of chips, Grain Waves fit the brief. They have a great crunchy texture, and while some of their flavours are a bit gimmicky, there are some great ones like ‘Sour Cream and Chives’. A couple problems to consider: a low number of chips in the bag (after all, each chip weighs more), and they tend to crumble easy in the pack - shake and listen first to get an idea. Overall, a slightly more healthy way to enjoy ridge style chips.
A nice but special type of chip design.
As we know, not all chips are the best but these chips are the good ones. Having a different chip style that we have not seen before might make some people like them due to the design of the chip but that's what makes it unique for me. Some people complain about how there is very few chips in the bag but i don't mind this very much at all because the taste is a good taste that makes people coming back for more.
Great flavour and texture
I recently tried these at a party and loved them so much I bought myself a pack (as soon as they were on half price sale Coles!). I think if you're used to potato based chips you might not enjoy them as much, but if you eat a lot of other variety of chips (corn chips, cheese chips etc) you will probably enjoy these.
Pretty good flavour and texture. Often whole grain alternatives have a really different texture that I hate, not these. Its different but not in a awful way. Also the small lunch box packs are an easy quick treat to pack in my uni lunch box. By far a better choice than the unhealthy alternatives (though its really is still a treat not an everyday food).
I bought a Large Packet of Grain Waves (Sour Cream & Chives)
I bought a large packet of Grain Waves from Hobart City (Woolies) They were inedible and I had to throw them in the bin. Bought on Fri 23 Aug 2013. looked at the packet after trying to eat them being so stale and ""off"<> Details are Best Before 15 Sept 2013. 126 E B20.08. OK technically still 23 days in date but not fit to eat.
Cannot understand how this has happened and I still have the wrapper and still have the receipt. But I have wasted money on a product of extremely poor quality. I couldn't eat the chips and have has to throw them away for health reasons.
Nothing , they had No flavour and were Stale and made me puke
Stale , out of date, should not have been sold.
Tasty wholegrain chips
Seems like people either love grain waves or hate them. I really like them. They are packed with flavor and taste really yummy. Sour cream and chives is the best one! The chip texture is dense but very crunchy and crispy. I love that they are healthy too - not sure about how wholegrain they are but they are definitely much lower in fat compared to traditional chips because they don't coat your fingers with oil after every piece.
To the reviewers who got only ten chips in their bag, my small pack of grain waves (40g) definitely had more than that! didn't count but was probably close to 20. perhaps they just got a bad batch
expensive when not on sale, limited flavors
They taste similar to other corn chips like CCs & Doritos. The sour cream & chives and the sweet chilli flavours are probably the best ones. They are also a little bit more healthy than regular chips, since they contain less salt and are cooked in vegetable oil and contain less fat.
Not enough in a packet
a rip off
I purchased a small bag of grain wave chips from woolworths and i counted ten chips, where can i complain about this, its just not right, never again will i purchase grain waves, even though i like the product. It should be illegal to produce a product stating that the weight does not add up to the quantity in the packet. Very bad!
I love the taste
the quantity and i paid $1.49 for ten chips!
Questions & Answers
I would really like to know, are these vegetarian or is there rennet in the cheese powder
We shop at ocean grove and geelong and neither coles or woolies have in stock the plain grain waves , yes they have all the trendy flavours , but my family all like the plain grain waves and we cant see why they don't keep them, I refuse to purchase the flavours when I know the better product exists what coles doesn't realise is our grocery spend is approx 250 dollars per week and we would spend this all in one shop. Where we can buy the product we want?
Hi, probably better to direct this question to the makers of grain waves and ask them who their distributors are. This is just a product review site and so not the best place to get an accurate answer. Good luck!
