      Disadvantages

      Tasty but need more per pack please!

      Crisps are something we tend to eat a lot of, if allowed, in our house. The kids especially love these savoury snacks. But what I tend to find is if one person has a packet, everybody has to have one as well. This means I always buy multi packs, and try to get the biggest and affordable packs I can depending on where I'm shopping at the time. I bought these, a pack of 8, for 99p in a local Home Bargain stores.



      Why did I buy these?

      I personally like them, but it boiled down to the fact that when I compared a multi pack from Walkers to this, although they cost the same price, the Walkers pack only contained 5 whereas this contained 8.



      What are they?

      As described on the packet:

      ' Crispy bacon flavoured crunchy wheat tubes '.



      How are they packaged?

      As you would expect from a packet of crisps, they come in plastic sealed packet. Mainly burgundy/dark brown colouring, with the product name ' Wheat Crunchies ' in the middle, and the flavour just underneath. Basic nutritional information in the bottom left hand corner.

      On the back is a fuller nutritional information list, ingredients and company contact details.



      Ingredients

      Wheat Flour, Sunflower Oil (24%), Maize Flour, Crispy Bacon Flavour [Yeast Extract, Dextrose, Wheat Flour, Salt, Sugar, Natural Flavourings, Spices, Citric Acid, Colour: Paprika Extract, Vegetable Oil], Potassium Chloride, Salt

      Basic nutritional information based on each packet:
      Calories 124 6%
      Sugars 0.9g 1%
      Fat 6.2g 9%
      Saturates 0.6g 3%
      Salt 0.5g 8%



      What are they like?

      Firstly, I find the packet looks alittle smaller than other brands, which isn't a huge issue as to a certain degree it depends on what's inside. The appearance of the packaging is ok, although it doesn't grab me because of the colouring, so could be better.

      When opening the packet, like with most brands, I did find the packet appeared only half full. Examining this more further I counted only 12 crisps, which isn't a lot considering this is for one person. You don't get a huge whiff of the flavour when first opened, but when eating the smell comes to you-has a slight bacon smell to it, but not a true copy, more synthetic.

      The crisps themselves are all tube like in shape with a hollow middle throughout. Slightly orange in colour and appearance wise they look quite thick and substantial. A lot of these crisps varied in size, as some were longer than others, but width they were pretty much identical and shape also. Some were straighter than others, some alittle wonky in regards to edges. But they all looked similar.

      Texture wise, these are very crunchy due to their thickness, which makes them sort of substantial to eat, although not as filling as I would like. These aren't the type of crisp that just melt in the mouth, you really have to eat, chew and bite to consume.

      Taste wise, they remind in abit of how they smell. They have a slight taste of bacon to it, but it's not natural, and quite artificial. Not unpleasant or strong, nor are they spicy in taste or sharp. I like the taste of these, and are probably comparable to other bacon flavoured crisps. What I do find is although the taste in the mouth doesn't linger, it does in regards to belching ( sorry! ), and sometimes I feel these do repeat on me at times.



      What do I think?

      These are very tasty, and the thing that makes them stand out are the structure of them making the texture interesting, and the look of them which isn't the traditional shaped crisp. I enjoy eating them, and I've liked this brand of crisp and flavour ( plus the tomato version ) from high school, so for me a slight blast from the past. My only issue is how many you get in a pack as there should be more, if not at least a bigger pack should be produced for retail.



      What do the kids think?

      These aren't their favourite crisp and only eat them because that's all that's in the house as I type! They've been brainwashed in thinking that Walkers is the better brand, and these are what they prefer, or at least crisps that look like these. Flavour, I think they prefer more traditional tastes such as Cheese and Onion. Shape wise, they don't seem very interested that these are alittle on the unusual side. But putting all these issues to one side, they still eat them and finish without leaving one left!

      Would I buy these again? Yes-but only at the price I paid for the same number of packets if not more. I enjoy them, they're different and tasty. Shame there's so little in each pack.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Ok but not the best

      As I sit writing this review I am eating a pack of these. Upon recently shopping in my local Sainsbury's I saw these on offer at 2 x 6 Packs for £2 (usually £1.70 for a 6 pack) and thought that I would give them a go. Made by KP (Discos, Skips and Nik Naks) they seem to have been making these crisps for years, as I can recall having a pack from a swimming pools vending machine back in the 90's.

      Packaging

      The packet I bought contained 6 packs of Smokey bacon crisps each weighing 25g. The packaging has now changed from the above image, but not so much that you would not recognise it. The new packaging boasts "NEW Longer Product and Bigger Taste", but to be honest with not buying them for a while I could not verify these claims. As with all crisps there is a lot of waste in the packaging, the packets feel quite empty. On the front is the usual guidelines for what the packet contains compared to your daily intakes. These are:-

      Calories 124 (6%)
      Sugars 0.8g (1%)
      Fat 6.2g (9%)
      Saturates 0.6g (3%)
      Salt 0.5g (8%)

      Taste

      Each crisp is 5 or 6 cm long, in a circular tube shape, with a slightly orange colour to them.
      The crisps do indeed taste very Smokey Bacony, although I find that you can also taste the oil that was made to use them. Also you can strongly taste the salt, but as they are bacon flavour this isn't much of a surprise. When eating I find that they leave a oily feel on your lips and the crisps are quite hard so make sure that you have no tooth problems before devouring a pack.

      Ingredients

      I will only quickly list these as I don't want to bore anybody. Wheat Cruchies contain no MSG, are made with 100% sunflower oil and have no artificial colours or flavours. Ingredients are :- Wheat Flower, Sunflower Oil (24%), Maize Flower, Crispy Bacon Flavouring, (Yeast extract, Dextrose, Wheat Flour, Salt, Sugar, Natural Flavouring, Spices, Citric Acid. Colour Paprika extract, Vegetable Oil), Potassium Chloride, Salt.
      There is also a warning that the product may contain Wheat, Barley, Gluten, Milk, Egg Soya, Mustard.

      Overall

      These are nice crisps to eat, but with the packets being a bit small and the oil issue I will not be rushing out to get them again especially at the price of £1.70. A good sized bag though to perhaps include in a lunch box maybe.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Crispy Bacon Wheat Crunchies make a nice change to normal crisps

        A 30g packet of Crispy Bacon Wheat Crunchies cost me 57 pence from Tesco recently which I actually thought was a bit expensive although I really quite like them. I have seen them cheaper than this in the past and you can always buy them in a multipack to make savings, for example you can purchase a multiple bag of ten for £2.49 currently on the Tesco website which as well as the bacon flavour also includes Worcester sauce and spicy tomato. This obviously means each individual bag will be a lot less expensive.

        The information on the back of the foil packet describes these as crispy bacon flavour crunchy wheat snacks and they definitely live up to these words. Each one of these snacks is a hollow tube maybe about half an inch in length and they do have a crunchy texture which makes them very pleasing to eat. The bacon flavour is very strong and particularly tasty and just like the other varieties of Wheat Crunchies the quality of the flavour does not disappoint.

        These contain no artificial colours or flavourings, no MSG and they are made with 100% sunflower oil. A packet of these contains 148 calories and 7.5g of fat which I don't think is too bad for you, if eaten like many snack items in moderation. These would make a perfect addition to a lunch box, a picnic basket or great when a few packets are poured in to a bowl at parties. These make a refreshing change to a standard type of crisp.

          A flavoursome snack

          Does anyone remember that slogan from a Wheat Crunchies advert from the mid 1990s? I took a trip down memory lane today and tucked into an immensely satisfying packet of Wheat Crunchies - Crispy Bacon flavour. I used to eat these a lot when I was a teenager and am not sure why I stopped eating them. For all those of you who are going misty eyed at the thought of trying this snack out, you will not be disappointed. They taste as good as you remember and still look the same too. We bought a multipack of Wheat Crunchies last weekend at Tescos who are selling 10 packets (3 x Worcestershire sauce flavour, 3 x spicy tomato flavour and 3 x crispy bacon flavour) for a great value £1. For all those of you who are counting, the last packet is any 1 of the above flavours.

          Packaging: In terms of the packaging the crispy bacon flavour are kept in a red/pink "bacon coloured" 25g foil packet with the Wheat Crunchie logo and flavour readily obvious. A basic picture of the snacks are on the main display panel too, described as "crunchy, wheaty tubes".

          Smell and Taste: The bacon flavour is quite strong and noticeable, if you are not a fan of this flavour you may find the smell off-putting. I personally found it fantastic. And as for the snack, it tastes as good as I remember. The main things that stand out are the meaty crunchiness and the moreish nature of the snacks. Just you try putting them down halfway through without finishing them! The bacon aftertaste is flavoursome and lingers on the tongue.

          Healthy: Surprisingly, these snacks are not as unhealthy as I would expect. 6% an adults daily guideline amount of calories does not seem particularly high for this type of product. However, the 9% and 3% fat and saturated fat content respectively is a bit more concerning, as is the 8% salt content. Everything in moderation as they say...

          Each pack contains:
          Calories: 123 (6% of an adults guideline daily amount)
          Sugars: 0.7 g (1% of an adults guideline daily amount)
          Fat: 6.3g (9% of an adults guideline daily amount)
          Saturates: 0.6g (3% of an adults guideline daily amount)
          Salt: (8% of an adults guideline daily amount)

          The Wheat Crunchies promise also states:

          - No artificial colours or flavourings
          - No MSG
          - Made with 100% sunflower oil

          Overall: I would highly recommend Wheat Crunchies - Crispy Bacon flavour as a flavoursome snack - they taste as good as you remember.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I'm sure these crisps have their fans...

            Wheat crunchies are an old favourite of mine which came out when I was still at school when most crisps were the boring circular affair. Back then they came in a number of flavours including tomato, worcester sauce and my fave of faves salt and vinegar, but the only flavour I can find in single packs these days are crispy bacon.

            The bag contains 30g of crisps and weighs in at just under 150 calories. Opening up the bag you are assaulted by what can only be described as an intense impression of a bacon smell. Not really the most appetising whiff in my humble, but each to his own. The crisps inside are tube shaped and have an orange / yellow tint.

            The crisps are as crunchy as I remember them, although not quite as flavoursome. The wheat / maize taste is present and satisfactory. There is a definite attempt to create a bacon taste, but the salty aftertaste cannot really mask the fact that there is little variety of flavour in these crisps. No doubt in an attempt to create a crisp with less artificial ingredients, E numbers etc the taste has been sacrificed? A longstanding Wheat Cruncher would know I'm sure.

            These crisps are pretty good, in fact they are better than most crisps on the market and I would eat them again. Its just that for me they do not stand apart. For that reason I am giving them 3 stars, although 3.5 would be a truer mark.

            A packet costs around the 45p mark, and the variety 6 pack can be picked up in a supermarket for £1.

              Disadvantages

              Great crisps that are a little different to regualr crisps

              Wheat crunchies by golden wonder are tube-like crisps which are crunchy, very very crunchy. You certinly know your eating these when you compare them to normal flat style crisps.
              The taste of the bacon crisps can sometimes be intense when you can see the flavouring hanging onto some individuals making them darker in colour. But generally they have quite an intense flavour. They definately give you a smokey bacon flavour which is perfect.
              They come in a multi pack with 6 bags, or you can buy them individually.
              The bags themselves are actually pretty tiny, not your walkers sized bags or anything, more like half the size, 30 grams i think. So it feels a little disappointing when you pull a bag, or half bag out of the packet. So you could probably eat two bags in any one sitting, bu then a third of your multipack has already gone.

              Now the packs themselves are quite boring, no flashly colours or images to grab your attention. Unless of course you buy a multipack which has the three flavours. This is usually bright lime green! Hmm miss that , i think not. These multipacks usually cost around £1.50 give or take.


              So overall if you like frazzles and the such then give these a try. A really strong bacon flavour in small sized packs for snacking or lunch boxes!

              .

              Why can't you find these much in the individual bags anymore? They are great, but I have to buy in the multipacks thesedays. This is alright, as I like all the flavours, but I think that the Crispy bacon ones are the best.

              I think the bag size is around 30g. The multipacks cost around £1.50 for the 6 bags, so not the cheapest ones out there. The bags are alright. They are a quite dull red colour, probably more a brown colour. No pretty pictures on the pack, but it looks ok.

              These Crisps are different than the other flat thin crisps out there. They are Wheat Crisps, as i'm sure you would gather from the name. They are quite thick and crunchy, but not too much. The consistency is quite rough and when you bite into these they can leave quite a few sharp bits behind.

              The flavour of these are great. They are full of flavour and taste like smokey, crispy crunchy bacon. A bit nicer than the smokey bacon from golden wonder as I think these taste a bit more like a proper bacon taste and not a fake powdery one.

              Not great to eat on a roll as they aren't that practical.

              Each bag has around 180 calories, so about the normal.

              A great tasty crunchy crisps

              Disadvantages

              a very moreish snack, does help fill you up til meal time

              I am a big fan of any bacon flavoured snacks, but these are by far the best bacon snacks yet, as the name suggests, these are made from wheat, not the usual potato snacks. I just can't get enough of them, i find then very filling if eating as a midday snack to keep me going, in my opinion, are more filling than any other potato crisps, and the flavour is better than any other i have tried for bacon. Once bag is opened you can smell the bacon, not too overpowering though, then when you pop one of these delicious wheat snacks into your mouth, you can tell why they are called crucnhies, lovely texture to them. I tend to buy them in a multipack which contains 2 other flavours (spicy tomato and worcester sauce) however, would really like to see these in a multi pack of one flavour, just the bacon ones please, i am not that keen on the others.

              1 bag (of bacon) contains approx 153 calories and 3.6 saturated fats.

              prices vary however i usually buy a multipack of 10 bags (3 of other 2 flavours and 4 of the bacon) for 99p at a loal B & M store, i would imagine a little dearer in supermarkets though.

                Baconey wheaty heaven.

                What's in a name??? Well in this case everything you need to know about these absolutely delicious snacks.

                Wheat Crunchies are made by Golden Wonder, one of the last companies to resist the ever advancing Walkers machine.

                The crisps are wheat based (derrr), and are absolutely crunchy, they are tubular in shape and are a deep goldeny brown colour. Each crisp is about an inch long and half an inch around.

                The amount of flavour in these things is in my opinion unrivalled by any other crisp, they are so intensely baconey it's unreal.

                The texture of the crisps is far from smooth with each crunchy being rough to the touch, this makes for an interesting combination of texture, crunch and flavour that make these snacks both irresistable and unique.

                The pack is a maroon red with a picture of the product and 'Wheat Crunchies written in large white print, each bag weighs in at 25g which is on the more generous side than some other crisps.

                The Crunchies are good at satisfying a hungry tummy, they really feel robust and substantial and as such are an ideal accompaniment to a lunchtime sandwich.

                I'd definately reccomend these crisps as they are unique in shape and texture, they are bursting with flavour and they are unusual (there aren't that many wheat based snacks on the market, especially bacon flavoured).

                I've read alot of negative reviews on the net about wheat crunchies being bland and tasteless, I don't know where one would get bland from, in fact for me one of the main attractions of the wheat crunchy is its super abundance of taste. Pick up a pack if you haven't already and see for youself

                Delish Crisps That Are Better Than Walkers

                These are the best bacon crisps ever, like you'd expect from the name of them they aren't normal potato crisps but are made from wheat.

                They are tube shaped and proper crunchy, I think these are deffo one of the crunchiest crisps I've eaten and a bag of these seems to last for ages longer than a bag of Walkers or other thin crisps.

                It's the flavour of these crisps that makes them so good because they are just soooooo baconey and yummy! They aren't madly salty like Walkers Smoky Bacon crisps but do taste like a strong smoked bacon, I think the taste is a bit like a cross between proper bacon and Frazzles only a lot stronger.

                These are them sort of crisps that you can taste for ages after you've eaten them all, I know that usually gets right on my nerves but with these I don't mind because I love the taste so much. They are meaty and very savoury tasting and anyone who doesn't like the taste of bacon should leave them on the shelf because that's the main flavour of these crisps! lol

                You can taste the wheat in the crisps and that's surprising because of how full of the flavour they are! I reckon the wheaty flavour helps the bacon flavour come out even stronger and it's nice when you bite through the crisps because the crunch is amazing and it's then that the wheat comes through, but because it's been cooked there's a nice mellowness in it.

                I love these Wheat Crunchies and have tracked down the one shop in my area that sells them because they're one of those crisps that have been sidelined in favour of the shops selling nearly all Walkers. 45p well spent I reckon!

                  I wouldn't buy these again

                  Golden Wonder Crispy Bacon Wheat Crunchies

                  These are a crunchy wheat snack, which are a popular alternative to crisps. At 123 calories a bag, they are slightly better for you too.

                  I bought a bag of these today (£0.40) in the crispy bacon flavour. I hadn't tried them before and to be honest, was a bit disappointed.

                  They are really crunchy, much more than I expected and I found them a little hard. I also found the bacon flavour a bit harsh and artificial. I ended up not being able to eat the whole bag, yet when I offered them round the office, my colleague snatched them up saying they were her favourites!

                  I am afraid that I wouldn't recommend these unless you like really crunchy snacks with a strong flavour. In that case, then you will probably love them!

                  2 stars from me, simply because they are a bit better for you than some other crisps.

                  Bacon Flavour Wheat Crunchies

                  Yesterday I reviewed the Spicy Tomato Flavour so today it's the turn of the Crispy Bacon flavour.

The Crispy Bacon flavour come in a purpley-pink packet with the name on the front. The ingredients, nutritional information & contact details for KP foods can be found on the back.

                  Ingredients:

                  Wheat Flour, Sunflower Oil (20%), Maize Flour, Crispy Bacon Flavour {Dextrose, Flavourings, Maltodextrin, Dried Autolysed Yeast, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Dried Cheese, Spices, Citric Acid, Colour: Paprika Extract}, Vegatable Oil (4%), Potassium Chloride, Salt


                  Price:

                  I paid £1.00 for a multipack of these which contains 3x Worcester Sauce, 3x Crispy Bacon, 3x Spicy Tomato plus 1 random packet of any of the three flavours


                  Taste & Opinion:

                  Like the Worcester Sauce & Spicy Tomato flavours, theres's a slight aroma that hits your nose when you open the packet. When I saw paprika listed on the ingredients I wondered whether the aroma was the same as that in the Spicy Tomato bag but I can now report that this isn't the case. Both bags smell completely different. I'd say these do smell a little like cooked bacon but they're not 100% accurate.

                  As stated on the bag these crisps are "crunchy wheaty tubes". The tubes are hollow & around 3 - 4 cms in length. The flavouring is on the outside of the tubes which you can feel when you pick one up. Some of this coating with inevitably come off on your fingers / hands but it's not as greasy as some other crisps.

                  As with the Worcester Sauce & Spicy Tomato flavours, the texture of the crisps is quite rough & they're harder than crisps such as Walker, Monster Munch etc. For crunchiness they're slightly harder/crunchier than NikNaks but not as hard/crunchy as Discos. The tubes themselves are also a little denser than some other crisps so whereas you may feel as though you've eaten nothing with something like "Skips", you do actually feel as though you've had something to eat with these wheat crunchies.

                  Tastewise these are the best of the multipack bunch. I feel that they come closest in taste to the name of the bag, especially as the Spicy Tomato flavour isn't spicy! They do have a slightly tangy edge to them, as do both of the other flavours, but it's not that strong. The taste does linger a little but that's not a bad thing.

                  Fatwise this flavour is the same as the Worcester Sauce & Spicy Tomato flavours. It's better for you than Discos (29.6% fat) or NikNaks (around 38.3% fat). These clock in at around 25% fat, which isn't healthy by any stretch of the imagination, but there are worse crisps out there on the fat content front.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    a great flavoursome snack that is lower in calories than similar snacks

                    Strange....but I only ever seem to eat Golden Wonder Wheat Crunchies when I am on a diet, They are not massivly low calorie at 125 per avarage bag, so why bother? They taste great.

                    Not a crisp.....as they are not made of potato, they are wheat based. A formed crisp like a pasta tube with a powdery finish. Very dry, and very crispy/crunchy. All I can really discribe them is if you pumped air into dry pasta tubes and covered it in dry powdered spice blend...you are close. This doesn't sound good, but they really are a tastly snack.

                    I always think that these are healtier than crisp snacks.....maybe becavse they are wheat....but mainly the 125 kcal's they contain tend to fill me up for longer than the average pack of Crisps at perhaps 180 or so kcals.

                    I have discribed the texture and what they look like.....but the flavour is something else. On my opinion, they are strong and rich in flavour, more so than other crisps..ever every get a stronger pack than others, which I find an issue with spud snacks..sometimes really weak in flavovr.

                    In closing, I love these snacks. Not a health snack in any way shape or form, but whether going for my fave Bacon flavour, or the Spicy tomato or Worcestor sauce variety, they are all strong and punchy.

                    Similar priced to chrisps in sweet shops and readily available...give them a go as an alternative...sort of low cal snack!

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      A very tasty snack

                      I just love these wheat crunchies. They are made by Golden Wonder and are tube shaped - about 3/4 inch long. The great thing about this particular flavour is that you can actually taste the bacon flavour. I love licking mine off first. The bacon flavour is quite strong but nice if you like Bacon - like me.

                      The packet themselves are only 25g in weight and the packaging is a maroon colour. They are actually referred to on the package as Crunchy Wheaty Tubes.

                      I personally think the calories of 126kcal are not bad for crisps. Although this may be down to the fact that the content is on the smaller side. They didn't fill me up and left me wanting more. They are also quite hard and I would advise with caution to very young children.

                      The fat content is also only 6.8g with 0.2g of Sodium, which although I understand is not good I have seen crisps with a lot more. As always I find it hard to stand how bacon crisps can be suitable for vegetarians??

                      I won't list all the ingredients as there are so many. I personally would highly recommend these crisps.

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Recommended for the flavour.

                        **** Introduction ****

                        While shopping in Asda this afternoon I came across these wheat crunchies, as these are a crisp that I have not eaten in years I decided to buy a packet as they were on offer.

                        **** The Product ****

                        These wheat crunchies are a crisp type snack that is produced by the snack company KP, this company also product that other snack such as discos and one of my favorites skips.

                        The wheat crunchies are always over looked as I usually opt for skips of discos but as these were on sale in multi packs of six form a pound I had to buy them.

                        The packet I am reviewing is the bacon flavour, which come in a pink / purple foil packet which helps keep them fresh and helps consumers identify the flavour, as each flavour comes in a different coloured packet.

                        Each packet contains roughly twenty once inch hollow tubes of wheat snack, I personally feel that KP are very generous as their is enough crisps in the packet to fill a gap.

                        I would say you need to have an aquired taste as these are very different from any other crisp as they are made from wheat and not potato, when you eat these they feel really bitty in you mouth and can take some chewing before swallowing as they are very hard, but they do crunch up easily as they are in fact hollow.

                        I am very impressed by the amount of flavour these little tubes actually contain, as they do not really look that appealing but to my amazement these were full of bacon flavour, which lead to me craving more although I felt full after eating the whole packet I could have happily eaten another packet.

                        **** Availability ****

                        These were purchased in a multi pack of six for a pound, these can currently be bought in asda but you can expect to pay slightly more in other supermarkets.

                        In the multi pack you will get 2 x bacon flavour in pink packaging, 2 x tomato in red packaging and 2 x salt and vinegar in green packaging.

                        ***** Nutrition Values *****

                        Each packet contains:

                        126 calories
                        2.3 grams of protein
                        13.9 grams of carbohydrates
                        0.7 grams of sugar
                        6.8 grams of fat
                        1.4 of which are saturates
                        0.6 grams of fiber
                        0.2 grams of sodium.

                        **** My Views ****

                        The packet i have just eaten has gone down a treat, but I am finding that small bits of wheat are sticking to my teeth so you will need to follow with a tooth pick after eating them.

                        After ten minutes of eating these I can still taste the bacon flavouring so these get a ten out of ten rate on the flavouring.

                        These have really filled the gap in my stomach and the calorie content is not to high as I have really enjoyed them, So these come highly recommended by me.
