Tesco Cheese Puffs
Advantages: quite nice crisps, cheap
Disadvantages: unhealthy, not as nice as wotsits
I've always loved crisps and I have tried a wide variety of types. Wotsits used to be a favourite snack of mine and I could devour packet after packet of them. However when I came across Tesco Cheese Puffs in the store last week, I decided it was about time I gave them a go.
They can be found in the crisp aisle in Tesco and were alongside the other Tesco crisps such as the onion rings and salt and vinegar sticks. Its wise to make sure you don't get these mixed up with the cheese balls as the packet is very similar.
The crisps come in one size of bag only and that Is a 150g bag. This is a lot bigger than your average sized bag of crisps. It will serve roughly 3 or 4 people I imagine however these are pretty large serving sizes. The bag costs 80p which I think is superb. A single 25g packet of cheesy wotsits will cost you around 40p, so for the double the price you get around 6 times the amount of crisps! This is superb.
The bag is really attractive I feel but it is very minimal. It is mainly a bright orange colour with white writing on it telling you about the product. On the back is the nutrition information and ingredients and some information on how to contact Tesco with problems. On the front of the packet there is a delicious looking picture of the crisps which have been emptied out into a bowl. They look delicious and look slightly larger than Wotsits.
Opening the bag is easy and you will be immediately hit with a cheesy smell. Taking one out I realised they were slightly larger than the branded version however were a bit paler in colour. They had a nice texture to them but did have a lot of coating on the front. The first thing I noticed when popping into my mouth was the subtle cheese flavour. It wasn't a strong flavour but it was really nice. They were quite crunchy but if you let them sit on your tongue they slowly began to melt. Gorgeous.
Crisps are never going to be healthy and in fact a 25g portion which is a recommended size of serving contains 133 calories and 8g of fat. Its easy to munch say 75g let alone 25g, and sometimes even the whole bag will be polished off in a oner! This bumps up the calorie content quite a lot.
