“ Brand: McVities / Type: Snacks „
I picked up this product last week because it was on special offer in Tesco for half price, 67p for a six pack instead of £1.35. As well as multipacks of lightly salted, they have packs containing salted, salt and vinegar and cheese and onion crisps too.
These go ahead crinkly crisps are made by Mcvities and are part of a range of snacks that are lower in fat and calories than regular products. They came packaged in a huge foil bag with 6 smaller packets of crisps inside each containing 21g.
Taste and Appearance
These are crinkle shape crisps, each was fairly small and quite a few were burnt around the edges.
They didn't have much of a smell. When I bit into them, they had a nice crunch. They were fairly thick and it takes quite a lot of chewing to get through them. They tasted fairly nice, although I would have prefered a little more salt on them. They were fairly dry so I needed to have a drink with them.
The main attraction of these crisps is that they have only 99 calories per bag. It says that they are lower fat than other average crisps but still contained a massive 22g of fat per 100g, although only 1.9g of that is saturated fat. Amazingly they have 0.3g of salt per 100g so are allowed on my daughters low sodium diet, but only just. I think these have a lower calorie count mainly due to the smaller serving size rather than the fact they are healthy.
There are only three ingredients here potatoes, sunflower oil and salt.
The simple ingredients is one of the main reasons I tend to eat ready salted crisps rather than other flavours.
These crisps were ok, but lacked that wow factor that I would get from other brands of crisps. I would rather eat crisps I really love but have them less often than eat these more often.
