“ Brand: Asda / Type: Snacks „
I LOVE these Potato Sticks from Asda even though I'm not usually mad keen on ready salted flavour. These have got a wicked texture though and even the BORING salty flavour isn't actually boring on these at all and makes them taste delish.
They're thin sticks of potato that are a bit sharp at the ends so they're probably not that good for little kids to eat, I can't think of how to describe them very good but I reckon they're a bit bigger than ONE ridge of a Mccoy crisp but are loads lighter to eat. Match stick sized, that's the best way to make you know what I'm talking about here! lol
They've got a wickedly salty flavour and your hands get into a proper mess when you're eating them, the crisps are a bit greasy and that makes them taste yummy but does make your hands feel all oily and sticky after. The grease doesn't stop the crisps from being majorly crunchy though and just gives them a nice taste when it mixes in with the salt. There tastes like there is shedloads of salt on them but looking at the ingredients shows there isn't actually THAT much on them. I love the salty taste of them and think they are a bit like the Ready Salted French Fries with that not in your face kind of saltiness but a proper strong taste that goes dead nice with the taste of the crisps them selves.
I like having these on a butty with dead fresh soft white bread and butter, they're so thin and small that they do fall out all over the place though so you need to make sure you're holding a plate under your sandwich! lol My mate introduced me to these and she has them in a pitta bread and reckons it's madly tasty, I reckon it would be a bit dry and bland like that and anyway you'd need hundreds of them to fill up a pitta! lol
Like I said before the ends are a bit sharp, they're deffo sharp actually and when I grabbed a hand full last night I shoved them in my mouth so quick that I stabbed myself in the gum! lol Serves me right for being a pig but it bloody hurt!
A 150g bag of Potato Sticks costs 85p and because they're so thin and small it feels like you get LOADS in a bag, I usually have the bag over a couple of days and they keep good as long as you fold the bag down properly to stop the crisps going stale.
My mum used to give me a bowl of these with some grapes when I was little but I haven't had any in years. So when my mum popped over a while ago with a packet of these I was so pleased and I am now addicted and buying them all the time.
These are ready salted potato stick crisps that are only quite short and very thin. Because they're so tiny it does mean that I end up eating so many of them in one go! They're really crunchy and are quite salty and have that delicious salty crisp smell. They are a little greasy but I love that I need to lick my fingers after eating some as my fingers are left all salty!
These only come in large sharing packets which makes them great for a little snack at parties or for having a few with a sandwich for lunch. I've got back into the habit of having a bowl of these with some grapes as the combination is just lovely - they'd also go quite well with other quite plain fruits such as an apple.
Most supermarkets have their own version of these and they're all pretty much exactly the same but I find the Asda ones tastier as they're slightly more salty. They only cost around 80p for a large pack and as long as you don't end up scoffing the entire pack they last quite a while.
