      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Nice

      I would love to say that the occupants of my house are carrot eating, juice drinking, fitness bodies who live the healthiest lives on the planet-but we're not! Everything in moderation, and that includes snacks such as crisps. I bought a pack of 10 of these treats while online grocery shopping with Tesco, costing £1.00.



      Why did I buy these?

      These a slightly a blast from the past! I used to eat these when I was younger, and I've always seen them stocked over the years in local corner shops. Occasionally I've bought them for the kids, but I rarely see them online while I'm doing my grocery shop with a major supermarket. So when I seen these advertised on Tesco.com for £1.00 for a pack of 10, I thought the kids would love them!



      How are they packaged?

      Traditional plastic type wrapper with what appears to be a foil coated interior. The front of the packet is mostly black in colour, with the words ' Space Raiders ' in bold yellow lettering at the top. Directly underneath there's a cartoon type picture of an alien in green with the flavour of the crisps at the side of it which is pickled onion. And opposite the flavour is basic nutritional information for a child in the bottom left hand corner.

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

      No idea the weight of each nag as it's not stated, but bag size is roughly 5 by 4 inches.



      Ingredients

      Maize,Sunflower Oil (22%) ,Pickled Onion Flavour [Wheat Flour, Acidity Regulator: Sodium Diacetate, Dried Onion, Salt, Citric Acid, Flavour Enhancer: Monosodium Glutamate, Flavourings, Vegetable Oil, Spice Extracts, Ground White Pepper] ,Dried Potato ,Salt
      Suitable for vegetarians



      Nutritional Information

      Calories 64, 3%of your GDA
      Sugar Trace, < 1%of your GDA
      Fat 3g, 4%of your GDA
      Saturates Trace, 2%of your GDA
      Salt 0.5g, 8%of your GDA



      How do they look?

      These are fun crisps. Each crisp is shaped like the head of an alien. When I say alien, I mean the stereotypical alien ( upside down egg shaped head, big eyes etc ) but in crisp and basic form. The crisp themselves are not flat, and slightly puffed up, so not traditional in the sense of the ' crisp ' word. No obvious coating of flavouring or salt.



      How do they taste?

      Despite being pickled onion in flavour, these aren't very strong. Which is good, as this flavour can be very overpowering and strong in general which these aren't. Definitely tastes as the flavour suggests, slight vinegar taste mixed with onion, quite cutting in the mouth, but the taste doesn't linger for too long. Despite the nature of these snacks, I don't find them too salty, and neither do the kids.

      They also don't smell bad or strongly as you would think Like the taste, you get a pretty good idea what they will taste like through the smell, but its nothing major in odour.

      The texture of the crisp is at first crisp, but because of its puffed out structure, quickly melts in the mouth giving a nice contrast to it. Reminds me slightly of Wotsits in regards to the texture. Unlike Wotsits though, there is no obvious coating on the crisp, they look quite pale in colouring but appealing due to their fun shape.



      So what do we think?

      My kids don't have an opinion really as they love 99.9% of crisps, but they obviously enjoy them and have no issues what potentially could be a pungent flavour.

      Personally, I like the size of the packets we received. Perfect size and amount for little hands and little mouths. For me to consume, they were too small, but our local corner shops sell slightly bigger packets, but at a higher price to what I paid for these. These crisps are fun, a nice snack that has a decent taste and texture to them. They also don't repeat on me which is always a bonus!

      Would I buy these again? Yes I would as long as they're at the right price. Lovely reminder of when I was a kid, care free and running to the shop around the corner with my pocket money!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        These are aimed at children but I love 'em too

        I've bought these in multi-packs for years for the kids (and myself). After finishing a bag off, I just happened to read the wrapper- I'm impressed so I've decided to review them!

        I pay £1 for 12 packs in Home-Bargains and PoundLand (although they can be slightly dearer in other stores).

        The foil wrapper is black with a green Alien face on the front, (there's a little Alien on the back too with some fun statistics- species, home planet, habitat etc) 'Space Raiders' written in bright yellow letters, the individual retail price of 15p and the flavour which is Pickled Onion. It also tells us what each pack contains in % of a child's guideline daily amount. The back of the wrapper is informative there's a 1-2-3 that tells us to 'Eat Healthily, Keep Active and Enjoy the taste (which I do)! There's the usual ingredients list and allergy advice.

        Aimed at children the shape of the actual crisps are alien heads and they are light golden brown in colour. These aren't potato crisps they're puffy corn snacks and they're baked not fried. They have a crunchy and crispy texture but aren't too hard to bite into. Containing only 62 cals (less per 100g than standard crisps) a pack. They're great for a quick snack- on the 'plus' side they don't fill you up and on the 'negative' side they don't fill you up!! They have a balanced pickled onion flavour- not eye watering in the least. There aren't many crisps in the bag but enough of a portion for children.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        An ok corn based snack but could be better

        Today for my lunch I didnt fancy anything heavy or hot considering the weather more than a sandwich so I nipped to my local Spa shop to get a few bits and pieces and stumbled across bags of these costing only 20p and quite fancied them.

        The Packaging:

        The bag is quite bright and colourful, is foil black to the front of it and silver to the back ot of it with a picture of a green alien head on there and we are told that they are Space Raiders Pickled Onion Flavour Cosmic Corn Snacks and there is an at a glance nutritional chart shown. On the back of the pack other information listed includes the ingredients and allergy advice being given as well as an at a glance nutritional chart, the best before date and size are given (25g) and contact details for the manufacturer is clearly listed. Nice, bright and informative packaging this is.

        The Snacks:

        Made of corn these are little alien head shapes, light golden coloured shaped snacks basically and very simple to look at and not frightening or anything. Quite thick and with a distinctive aroma of pickled onions to them these melt in the mouth though eat them quickly and they are nice and crispy. You can really taste the corn flavouring and they do taste like pickled onions in a watered down way and I did think that they would be more stronger in flavour than what they were.

        At only 119 calories a pack which contains only 0.6g of saturated fat (per 25g sized bag) these were for me simply ok and nothing special. I do think they lacked flavour somewhat and are probably more suitable for a childs tastebuds more than mine!

        Available in all good supermarkets etc at about 20p a packet.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A yummy cheap munchie!

          These crisps are defiantly a staple food for students like me because of its low price! £1 for twelve packets in Home Bargains, Poundland and even now in tescos! You can also pick them up in most corner shops for 20p.

          *The bag*
          The bag is black with the funky Alien on the front, the quality of the packaging has improved over the years, It used to be a thin papery plastic but now they are a proper crisp package quality, sadly the price also went up and seem to be have the size of they were since I was a kid :(, There seems to only be around 10 crisps in a package!

          *The flavour*
          The flavour of picked onion is defiantly there, it's not as strong as monster munch pickled onion but it still is very delicious, the texture is also something that makes it so much different than other brands, its like a hard cakey crisp and the texture and flavour mixed together is defiantly what makes them so addictive. They have no weird colour to them and I also don't seem to be covered in crumbs.

          I think everyone should pick these up if they want a bargain crisp! They were a favourite in my childhood and still remain a firm fave of mine!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Delicious crisps from KP Snacks

          I am more of a lover of chocolate and sweet stuff than I am of savoury stuff so I wouldnt eat a lot of crisps, I just take the notion to eat them occassionally. Today I opted for a couple of packets of Space Raiders Pickled Onion flavour.

          They come in small packets and the good thing is that they are a lot healthier than they used to be as they are baked in sunflower oil and not fried so have less saturated fat. These would be good to treat yourself to if you are trying to lose weight.

          Space Raiders crisps have been sold for years and I have always loved the strong pickled onion taste of them as they always tickle my tastebuds and are really moreish. The packets used to be 10p each and are now up to 15p but as the packets are so small, I usually have two packets in one sitting.

          I also find that although they are tasty, they are not very filling so I see them as just a small snack and one packet is never enough for me.

          The crisps are shaped like an aliens head and are really crispy and tasty. They are quite strong smelling so be aware that if you are eating these on the bus, you may get a few funny looks and you should keep a packet of chewing gum handy to keep your breath fresh after eating these.

          These crisps are made by KP snacks and are available in most good supermarkets and grocery shops. These crisps can make your mouth quite dry so I always make sure I have a drink with me when I am eating these.

          A packet of these contains only 61 calories and 0.3 grams of fat so they are great for the calorie conscious. They contain wheat and gluten so you may want to avoid them if you have any allergies.

          I would fully recommend these crisps to anyone who likes strong flavours and has a savoury tooth. They are a great size to keep in your lunchbox or your bag so they are good to have with you when you are out and about.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            strong flavoured pickle onion alien crisps

            Space raiders pickle onion flavour remind me of my days at primary school, we used to get a morning break where we were able to buy a snack of either a packet of three biscuits for 20p or a bag of space raiders for 10p. There was just something about the taste of these snacks that I just loved so most days I would have a packet for my break.

            Space Raiders are made by KP Snacks and were introduced in the UK in the late 1970's and were priced at just 10p! This price remained until 2007 when it was increased to 15p per packet, I can remember my partner who is somewhat of a crisp addict being outraged by this price hike. But if you are careful and shop around it is possible to find multipacks of space raiders in certain shops for around £1 for 10 bags, my local Iceland and Poundland often have them.

            The snacks themselves are alien shaped heads made from wheat and corn with pickle onion flavouring. The do have quite a strong flavour but I love that from snacks and crisps, to me the stronger the better.

            The packets themselves are fairly small but I guess you can only expect so much from a product that costs just 15p. Although it does not state how many grams each packet contains there is nutritional information available on the front and the back of the pack. I tend to eat these when I am trying to cut down on my calorie intake as I love crisps so find it hard to give them up altogether but with these being smaller quantities I feel less guilty. On the back of the packet it also states that the snacks are baked and not fried and that they contain 75% less saturated fat than in 2005. The nutritional content of one single packet of space raiders pickle onion is:

            Calories (Kcal) - 61
            Sugars - 0.2g
            Fat - 3.0g
            Saturates - 0.3g
            Salt - 0.4g
            The snacks are also suitable for Vegetarians.

            The snacks come packed in a black foil packet and have a bright green alien head picture on the front with 'Space Raiders' written in large yellow writing above. They are described on the packet as being 'Pickle Onion Cosmic Corn Snacks'. On the back of the packet there is also a picture of an alien with its vital statistics which adds a fun element to the snacks.

            Although the pickle onion flavour is by far my favourites Spaces Raiders are also available in other flavours including:
            -Beef
            -Salt and Vinegar
            -Spicy
            -Saucy BBQ

            I will say that if you have never tried these savoury snacks then you certainly should to me they just remind me of childhood and I love the tangy taste. They are also far cheaper than most crisps on the market and because they are a fairly small packet they are better on the waistline to.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Good value snack.

            I am always snacking, I eat in between meals as my appetite is quite big, and I bought these from my local shop for only 15p, I buy these on a regular basis, as some of my grandchildren love these, especially the older ones, I can never resist picking up a packet when I go to my local shop as I love snacking and these are lovely for the perfect snack.


            They come in the usual snack plastic bag and inside they are skull shaped alien corn and wheat snack crisps, the texture of them are nice and crunch, but they melt in the mouth as they are being eaten, the ones I am reviewing is a Pickled Onion flavour and the flavour is not too strong and as I have found in other snacks.

            I think they do not taste very vinegary as you would expect with most foods pickled and therefore they do not burn the taste buds on the tongue and are just the right taste for my liking and the children.


            I can see why children are attracted to these because of the flavour not being too strong and the shape of the snacks, these are very easy to chew as they melt in the mouth as they are eaten, and they are of a very good quality and an excellent taste and very good value for money.

            Each bag contains 71 calories, 0.2g sugar, fat 3.4g and saturates 0.3g, and these are baked not fried and so they contain 50% less saturated fat as they are now made with 100% sunflower oil but I cannot find the size of the grams on the packet anywhere but I would think this size is around 20g but I cannot be certain as I bought them from my local shop.

            These are manufactured by KP snacks and KP have been around for a very long time and make good quality products, which are good tasting.

            I have sometimes taken these to work with me for my lunch as they are very filling and I have eaten them with my family when I have been having a get together and have been trying to put a few snacks on the table and they are fun for the children to eat along with the adults, but the children seem to go for this snack first as they are fun.

            These snacks do contain, wheat, gluten, soya and mustard and so please be aware if you may have an allergy to wheat or gluten.

            They are great little fun snacks for the children as they are a fun design shape of the skull and I think they are fabulous for Halloween parties as I have bought them in the past for these parties and I am going to buy some more this year for Halloween.

            I highly recommend these snacks and for the price, I think they are fabulous and I think they are very filling and extremely tasty snack, and very moreish and I will keep buying them in the future and they are very good value for the money.

            I rate these 5 stars.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A great little snack from yesteryear

              I was in my local Farmfoods earlier today picking up a few bargains which I may review for you all at a later date when I came across something that immediately transformed me back in time quicker than Doc Brown's flying Delorian (Back to the Future)

              The product in question was KP's Space Raiders. I have very fond memories of coming out of my local swimming pool after another successful lesson and proudly waving my newly awarded 10 metre badge to anyone who would look. The norm, after my lesson was that my Mum would let me pick a snack of my choice from the vending machine, on this day, I picked Space Raiders and that is when I fell in love with this delicious snack.

              The packaging is very distinctive as is primarily black with a big green alien's head on the front the bag, very eye catching compared to other crisps on the market at the moment. The bags are quite small and much smaller than your average bag of crisps, so ideal for children looking for little treat or adults who wish to stroll down memory lane.

              There are a few flavours of Space Raiders but my favourite was always pickled onion and this seems to have been the most popular among my friends at the time as well. Years ago, I remember paying 10 pence for a packet but as times move on so do prices so you can expect to pay 15 pence per packet now, which , I still feel is bargain compared with the prices that some brands now charge for a single packet. Also there is slightly larger packet now in the range for the price of 25 pence.

              They are also available in a multi packet of 12 , which is what I bought today at the cracking price of £1.00 (Farmfoods 25/09/2010)

              As for the nutritional values, these can be located on the packet and are as follows for one packet

              Calories - 61
              Sugars - 0.2g
              Fat - 3g
              Saturates - 0.3g
              Salt - 0.4g

              As it can be seen they are not the healthiest snack but they are baked instead of fried and are probably not as bad as other things we may be eating when having a small treat. Also for anyone out there with allergy worries they do contain wheat and gluten and may also contain milk, Soya and mustard.

              They truly did bring a smile to my face today as I haven't seen them for years and they have helped ease the pain of another boring night in front of X-Factor.

              Thanks for the memories KP!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Space Raiders are well worth the small price but are high in salt.

                Space Raiders have to be the snack of my childhood, I loved these crisps but as I got older I kind of forgot about them. As I tend to shop in supermarkets I never saw them anywhere. On starting my first day of my new job I took a trip into the local news agent and there they were staring me in the face, memories flooded back and I picked up a few packets.

                This was almost a year ago and I am still eating them. The appeal of these corn snacks comes from their bright memorable packaging and their cheap price of 20p. The packet is very distinctive with a large iconic Alien face in green, blue, red or orange depending on the flavor. The font on the packaging is very reminiscent of the arcade games in the late 70's and early 80's such as Space Invaders and Asteroids.

                The snacks are also shaped like alien heads which along with the retro feel adds fun to what would be a boring snack, especially the way they are often slightly distorted offering accidental varied expressions. These little heads are not too high in flavor but have a more subtle taste. This may be seen as a disadvantage to some but I kind of prefer it to a high impacting flavor. The texture is crunchy, soft and pleasant in the mouth and they are very easily eaten at great speed if you happen to be in a hurry or need a quick boost to stop your stomach rumbling through a staff meeting.

                Space Raiders are baked rather than fried to like a lot of corn snacks these days which mean they have 50% less saturated fat which is a great positive.

                Space raiders are a lot cheaper than other crisps but recently have raised by 5p now retailing at 20p. Still this price is at least half the price of most other corn snacks and crisps found in the super market. This cheap price is mainly due to the lack of ingredients and actual substance in the snack.

                They contain half a gram of salt per bag which is a lot considering the average adult should only have 6g a day and these snacks are aimed at children. The bag is also full but sadly also small, often I find myself buying two or three bags and now I stop to think about it that is a lot of salt and you could afford a higher quality brand of crisp.

                Overall Space Raiders have stood the test of time surviving over two decades in the market. The Raiders have been around since the late 1970's and appear to be here to stay, while they may be small and high in salt, I feel that they are well worth the small price that they cost.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  A nostalgic treat.

                  When my son came back from the corner shop with a packet of Space Raiders, I was instantly transported back in time and had a complete nostalgia-fest, because these little guys have been around for as long as I remember, and bring back memories of after school snacking in the 1980's!


                  Space Raiders are made by KP snacks, which is a well trusted British snack Brand. They come in a black plastic bag, which, unfortunately, you can't see through, which I think is a bit of a design flaw, as the appeal of these snacks is the fact that they are shaped like alien heads! The snacks retail at 15p, which in my opinion is a lot cheaper than other crisps and snacks on the market. Of course, the portion size is relatively small, but seeing as this is a product aimed primarily at children, I don't feel this is a bad thing.


                  The front of the bag also contains the nutritional information, which unfortunately does not make pleasant reading. The stats are as follows per pack:

                  Cal 71
                  Sugar 0.2g
                  Fat 3.4g
                  Saturates 0.3g
                  Salt 0.5g

                  My obvious concern is the amount of salt in these snacks. Half a gram does seem excessive for a kiddie snack, and I would certainly think twice before giving them to younger children.


                  The snacks themseves have a pleasant, crunchy texture, and are made primarily of Maize, giving them a puffly, light feel. The shape of the snacks is a novelty, although you don't really get many in a pack. The snacks are Pickled Onion flavour, although the flavour is only mild and not likely to blow your head off, which is a shame, as I am a huge fan of Monster Munch, but I suppse the milder flavour is more likely to give the snacks a wide appeal.


                  KP have a customer careline, which is free to call on 0800 9174494 and is manned weekdays from 9-5. There is allegy advice on the pack that the product contains Wheat and Gluten, as well as Milk, Soya and Mustard. The product is suitable for vegetarians. The bag is not recycleable.


                  The snacks are baked rather than fried, so at least that is something positive. KP are commited to improving their products, and the pack states that the snacks now contain 50% less saturated fat than they did in 2009. Let's hope they continue by reducing the salt content and making these snacks healthier for children to eat.

                    Disadvantages

                    Cheap and cheerful crisps

                    I hadn't had a packet of Space Raiders for years so when I spotted a multipack in my local corner shop I thought it was an ideal opportunity to review them for Dooyoo....


                    Packaging.

                    The mulitpack for these crisps is predominantly black with a picture of a green alien face on the front. The name and flavour also appear along with a banner stating that the crisps now have 50% less saturated fat. The back of the multipack bag contains a blurb about having a healthy balance in your diet, nutritional information ,, ingredients and the contact details for KP Snacks. All of this information can also be found on each individual crisp packet.


                    Nutritional Information per pack {per 100g in brackets}

                    Contains: Wheat, Gluten.
                    May contain: Milk, Soya, Mustard


                    Ingredients:

                    Maize, Sunflower Oil (22%), Wheat Flour, Pickled Onion Flavour [Acidity Regulator: Sodium Diacetate, Dried Onion, Citric Acid, Flavour Enhancer: Monosodium Glutamate, Flavouring, Vegetable Oil, Spice Extract, Ground White Pepper], Salt, Potassium Chloride


                    Price:

                    I paid 99p for a mulitpack containing 12 packets of Space Raiders from my local shop.



                    Taste & Opinion:

                    The first thing you notice about these crisps is that the packet appears to be smaller than most of the other crisps on the market. After scanning both the multipack bag and the individual crisp packets I was unable to find anything that gave an approximate weight of crisps in the packet. However, judging by the nutritional information on the back of the packet it's clear that each bag contains around 15g worth of crisps which is less than you'd expect to find in a bag of Walkers for example.

                    These crisps are shaped a little differently to your regular Walkers type of crisps. They're triangular in shape and have little holes to represent the eyes and mouth of the alien seen on the front of the packet. No holes for the nose though. However, what you'll also find is that a number of these triangular alien heads have broken so you're just eating bits of alien head for some of the time rather than whole ones.

                    Popping a couple into my mouth I realised that these are quite dense crisps. They're not as "fluffed up" as Skips for example and they have a heavier consistency than Frazzles, Quavers and Monster Monster. They're probably closest to Wheat Crunchies in consistency but aren't quite on the same level on the crunchiness scale. So, if you're looking for some light, melt in your mouth crisps similar to Skips then you're going to be disappointed with these.

                    Tastewise, they have that same sort of slightly sour pickled onion flavour that the pickled onion Monster Munch have. However, the flavour here is not as strong as their Monster Munch counterpart and the sensitive souls amongst you probably won't find it too overpowering. The crisps leave a slightly tingling taste on your lips and tongue and a little residue on your fingers that feels a little greasy. Best wash your hands after eating these if you're handling paper for example but, to be honest, there doesn't appear to be the amount of coating used on these crisps that you'd find on some flavours of Pringles.


                    In terms of fat content these aren't quite as bad as I thought they might be. They're way down in the bottom half of the table and, whilst cheap and full of artificial ingredients, they contain a lot less fat than a number of Walkers, Pringles and McCoy flavours. If you're looking for premium crisps with a natural taste then these obviously aren't what you looking for. However, if you're looking for something cheap that's not going to be too bad on the fat front then these may well the crisps for you.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      A cheap and tasty nostalgic snack

                      Space Raiders are a snack that has been around for decades and many adults remember buying them from school tuck shops! They are still popular with the children now but maybe not as easy to find.

                      They are in the crisp family and are a snack made out of corn and wheat. They are available in beef, pickled onion, salt and vinegar and spicy flavours.

                      The bags are eye catching, especially for children, with a black background and a large green alien head on them, with Space Raiders written in yellow.

                      The snacks are shaped like alien heads with cut outs for the eyes and mouth. They have a very strong taste and can leave you with bad breath but are very yummy and moreish! Each alien head is quite large so it can make a bit of a mess if you bite them in half, or if you have a big mouth you can stuff it all in in one go! They don't taste like normal crisps because they are made of corn and wheat, and have a puffy texture to them which is quite similar to monster munch. They are crunchy if you bite them, or else you can suck them which turns the snack into a tasty goo in your mouth.

                      They were only 10p per bag until 2007 when the price went up to 15p, amid much controversy! However, you can now buy the bigger pack (28g) at 20p again, when before it was 25p. The price is much cheaper than other crisps and so are a good pocket money snack.

                      Nutritional Information per 13g bag of beef flavour

                      Energy (kJ) 261

                      They are definitely a good, tasty, cheap snack!

                      Disadvantages

                      Space Raiders - crunchy corn and wheat snack, with loads of flavour.

                      KP Space Raiders have been around since the seventies and remained at their original price of 10p up until October 2007. They are still cheap at the new price of 15p, but I would not want to pay any more, for a packet of crisps thats contents only weigh in at a measly 13 grams!

                      Space Raiders are made from corn and wheat and come in the shape of an alien's head. They are chunky, very crunchy and full of flavour.
                      They are available in three flavours, salt and vinegar, roast beef and my personal favourite, pickled onion. All three are very strong and are not suited to anyone who prefers a delicate flavour, I should also mention that they smell quite strong too, so be careful where you breath!

                      Space Raiders come in an old style pack (no foil here), the pack is black, with yellow lettering and the colour of the aliens head, depends on the flavour of the snack. You get a green alien for pickled onion, a blue one for salt and vinegar and a red one for roast beef.

                      *Nutrition Value Per 13g Bag*

                      Energy - 62 kcal
                      Protein - 0.8g
                      Carbohydrate - 7.7g
                      of which sugars - 0.2g

                      of which saturates - 0.7g
                      Fibre - 0.5g
                      Sodium - 0.2g

                      Space Raiders are suitable for vegetarians.

                      These crisps are not always easy to find, although you usually come across the single 15p packs in smaller local shops. Asda had them available in a multipack of 10 last year for £1, but I haven't seen them for ages. I have never seen them in Tesco and do wish they were more widely available.

                      KP Space Raiders are well worth tracking down. They are great if you're trying to save the pennies, want a light, low calorie snack or just want to relive some childhood memories.

                      Then again, you could make believe that you are a super hero and save the world from all those pesky little invading aliens!

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!

                        I've always loved these Pickled Onion flavour Space Raiders but nowhere round here sells them so when I go to my mates on the other side of Birmingham I always buy a couple of quids worth! lol

                        They are shaped like alien heads and are puffy crisps, not potato ones. They've got a lovely light texture and it's possible to eat shedloads of bags without ever getting sick of the taste or the crisps making you feel pukey.

                        I don't think they're very greasy and deffo not as much as some other crisps. The puffy texture of them means you can suck them or crunch them, the alien heads are lovely and crispy if you're like me and haven't got the patience to let them melt in your mouth! lol

                        The flavour can be a bit sharp, it's a proper nice tangy onion taste that lingers for ages in your mouth after you've finished the crisps. There's a strong vinegar taste to the crisps and they're a bit salty as well but you can taste a majorly sharp pickled onion flavour that can actually start making your tongue feel burned if you eat too many in one go!

                        Space Raiders used to be 10p a bag but I think they're 20p now but the bag's bigger. You can make them last for ages and I like that about them because if you suck the crisps they melt nice and slow in your mouth, the flavour of them comes out big time when you suck them and they manage to taste even stronger for longer!

                        I think they're yummy crisps because they are majorly different from anything else you can buy, they deffo the best puffy crisp and the strong flavour makes your mouth water sometimes! You can get beef and spicey tomato flavours in these space raiders, they're nice but these picked onion ones are deffo the best.

                        Recommended... cheap and you can pretend to be a kid again!!!

                          Advantages

                          Disadvantages

                          A great tasting cheap packet of crisps.

                          Space Raiders are corn and wheat snacks produced by KP Snacks. The come in few different flavours including Beef and Salt and Vinegar. But personally, I find these Pickled Onion ones the best. The crisps themselves are shaped like alien heads and have a slight curve to them.

                          I've been eating Space Raiders for years. These are relatively cheap and very tasty so they used to be my crisps of choice when it came to spending my pocket money.

                          These crisps used to be 10p, but as most other things have, the price has increased in recent times, however, the size of the bags have too and I still believe at 20p these are fantastic, tasty crisps.

                          These crisps come in a black packet with a green alien face on the front and yellow writing and on the back is the nutrition values as well as alien facts and the address of the company.

                          I think these crisps taste great and are really crunchy. The flavour is extremely intense and every crisp is thickly coated. The only negative thing I can say about these crisps is there's a slightly stale taste to the crisps although this isn't entirely unpleasant and you can mainly taste it after the crisp has been swallowed.

                          28g of Pickled Onion Space Raiders will set you back 131 calories, 6.4g of fat, 1.4g saturates, 24g of fibre and 2.4g of sodium equivalent to 6g of salt. Obviously, looking at these figures, it's clear these crisps aren't the slightest bit healthy and should only be an occasional treat.

                          Space Raiders are available in most newsagents and corner shops and in supermarkets are multi packs, costing at little as 20p per pack.

                          Overall, these crisps taste fantastic, are really crunchy and are extremely cheap.
