I love this product! They are a great tasting potato based snack that are cute too. The crisps are in the shape of teddy bears which should appeal to kids (and some adults too). The texture is much nicer than other similar snacks and have quite a good crunch.
I've tried both the ready salted and cheese and onion flavours and have found both to be really nice. The foil packaging ensures that the snack is kept as fresh as possible and this is reflected in the strength of the flavour. The packet is also colourful and features a range of children's characters.
Pombears aren't too bad calorie and fat wise, so they are a good food to keep handy when on a diet. It's nice to find a product that does not include lots of hidden nasties like articial colours and flavourings. They are normally priced around £1.50 for a multipack, which is quite reasonable. You do get a lot of crisps in the packet too.
Just sat down to a nice packet of crisps for my lunch. On this occasion they come in the Pombear variety which are made by a company called Intersnack Ltd.
I have eaten these crisps before but usually have the original or cheese flavour. This new flavour is Prawn Cocktail and they are delicious.
The crisps cost £1.00 for 6 packs and they come in a pink colour, like most Prawn Cocktail crisps. Cheese comes in green and original (plain) comes in red.
The crisps come in the shape of little bears and are aimed at children. This is primarily why we have them in the house. But I'm a kid at heart and find them very crunchy and extremely tasty. Unlike some crisps the 19g fill the bag nicely.
An added advantage is that they are Gluten Free and have no Artificial Colours or Preservatives. They do however have soya and cows milk for those who have allergies.
Each pack only has 97 calories which is great if you are on a diet and not too unhealthy for childrens packed lunches.
For those children amongst us Pom-bear loves going on adventures in Pom-bear world with his friends Lilly the clever fox and Criss-Cross the cheeky fox. They also have a website www.pom-bear.co.uk.
Very nice crisps and highly recommended.

I have to admit that I only considered trying these a few months ago, despite having seen them in shops before. They may be somewhat boring for some, but I actually quite like these cute little bears, even if they are aimed at children!
Pom Bears come in red bags with a cartoon style bear in the middle and images of the crisp bears to either side of him, so they're easily recognisable. They can be found in most supermarkets, some discount stores and occasionally local / corner stores too. I remember these from years ago but as I've said, I've only more recently tried them. They stand out from the crisp crowd because of the unique teddy bear shape, so they're a big like Haribo bears but in potato format.
These are described as having a 'melt in the mouth taste' and are basically quite light potato crisps. They can be bought in the three traditional flavours: Original (plain), salt and vinegar, and cheese and onion. I tend to opt for original because, as my boyfriend likes to keep reminding me, I like my food bland and boring. Per 19g packet, the original version contains 97 calories and 5.4g of fat, which is about what I would expect from a crisp snack that's quite 'light'.
I say these are 'light' because, as you'll notice from the bag', they don't weigh much. Each teddy has quite a light texture that's crunchy but not hard because they have an almost aerated feel to them. This makes them easier on your mouth and teeth because you don't even need to lightly crunch them, you can let them melt in your mouth. I like that they're not too crunchy because they're still crisp and have a pleasant potato smell and yummy, more-ish taste. I've also tried Cheese and Onion and have found the flavouring to be just right, though I am still a big fan of the originals.
Pom Bears proudly tell us they contain 'no nasties, artificial colours or preservatives', are gluten free, suitable for vegetarians and are cooked in sunflower oil to make them a little 'healthier' with less saturated fat. If I had children, I'd opt for giving these as a crisp treat every now and again because they do seem a bit of a healthier option compared to some alternatives (ie. the ones with lots of salt, fat/cals, additives). The originals do come salted, but I don't find it to be too much and never really seem to find a pile of salt remains at the bottom, so there's just enough to bring out the potato taste.
All in all I would recommend these to children and adults alike. They made be quite plain and basic, but they're tasty and light, making a little treat that's not too filling.
6 x 19g sells for around £1.39 (Tesco) or can be found in Poundland
I love these Chrisps! Each time I get a bag I just have to get another and another - hance I just have to put some stones up due to NEARLY having Anorexia. I eat and eat and these are the best chrisps I ever ate.
MY ffave flavour MUST be the Original! I never tried Salt and Vinegar or Cheese and onion on Pom-Bears but I don't prefer the flavour.
These bears give you such a yummy addictive flavour - creamy and just SO YYUUUUUMMMYYYY!!!
I would if I was the manager make one bag sold for like £7 that would have 5kg of Pom Bears. The small packets are just wasting resources from the earth - hence they will be thrown away in a second.
I JUST LOVE THESE! Defintely recommend them... *Eats a pom bear* "come here my little hands" hmmmmm.... LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE! Totally love these things! They are so nice and refreshing! Getting back into the younger days... lol im 14
For a very long time my sons favourite potato snack was Pom- Bear; 'The Teddy shaped potato snack'.
Pom-Bear comes in shiny Red bags, usually in packs of 6. On the front of the packet are small pictures of the potato bears and a large picture of a bear in the middle with a crown on his head.
Pom-Bear are cooked in pure sunflower oil and they are gluten free, have no artificial colours, no artificial flavours and no artificial preservatives.
I hadn't actually bought these for a long time but noticed them again recently and thought I would buy them again for my son for a change. Sometimes I like to vary what he has, snack wise and he was pleasantly surprised when he found out I had bought these again!
Each bag weighs only 19g but there are a reasonable amount of potato bears in the packets. This is a very light snack but they are actually quite tasty without being too salty in my view and quite healthy too.
Potato powder (31%), Sunflower Oil (28%), Potato starch, Modified Starch, Salt, Sugar, Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin (with Milk protein and Whey powder), Yeast Extract, Spice
~~Allergy Advice; Contains Cows Milk & Soya~~
~~Calories; Each 19g packet contains 97 Kcals~~
Pom-Bear come in other flavours too; Cheese & Onion and Pizza and they are usually priced at around £1.25 per 6 pack.
Pom- Bear are a great little potato snack for kids; they are light and tasty and worthy of 4 Dooyoo stars in my opinion.
I think these little known crisps are simply the bees (or the bears!) knees!
It is not often you see them in the shops, that is, not everwhere sells them and for a while the only place I ever saw them - strangely - was Superdrug, but I have recently seen them in Morrisons and Tesco so maybe they are becoming more popular.
Cost wise they are currently 46p per bag at Morrisons, but you can buy multi packs at Tesco which work out cheaper (though I dare say that the size of each packet will be smaller, as is usually the case with multi pack crisps).
The texture of them is similar to that of a Quaver perhaps, though more crispy. They are shaped like little bears (hence the name, obviously!). They are available in 3 flavours as far as I know (ready salted, salt and vinegar and cheese and onion), though most times I have seen them it is only the ready salted ones that are available. having said this, I actually think that in the case of this particular brand of crisps the ready salted flavour is the best, despite the fact that they are not laden with salt they are very tasty and a little salt is all they need.
For those of you with children you will be pleased to know that these crisps are not full of rubbishy additives, as far as is possible with a bag of crisps, but like I say despite this they taste fab!
My little grandson loves having treats, usually at the weekends as his parents are quite strict on what foods they allow him to eat and I believe in feeding a child healthy foods and then allow the treats at the weekend or whenever a parent decides they can have them.
This is one I bought for him recently to try and they come in a plastic bag and for 19g they cost 49p from my local store.
The bag content is just the right amount for a small child and the crisps are tiny bear shaped light potato crisps, they are very attractive to a child and the texture is nice and soft and they melt into the mouth perfectly.
They are cooked in pure sunflower oil and they have no artificial preservatives, colours or flavours and they are gluten free, which makes them a healthy snack for young children.
The sunflower oil has naturally low saturated fats and these re the ones that are important and so these crisps are much healthier than some other varieties of crisps.
They are ideal for children's lunch boxes and for picnics and I am going to buy some more for him for when I have my parties and BBQs as I think they are attractive for the little ones to eat from a dish.
In my opinion I think they are the same texture as another well known brand of crisps or similar products and they have the same effect and melt into the mouth and are very easy to chew.
My grandson loved the bear shapes when I opened them for him and he was looking at them before he ate them and wondered why he could eat a bear lol, he is almost 19 months and so he does not quite understand at the moment lol, he also said more when he had eaten them and so I knew he really enjoyed them and I will definitely be buying them again in the future and the bag size is just big enough for a young child to hold.
I recommend these for anyone to try and they are also perfect for adults too as I enjoyed the couple he allowed me to eat lol.
These are excellent quality and value for the money.
I give these 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review.
Being the mother of four children it's fair to say that some junk food does seep in to the house and I like to try and keep in lots of healthy snacks as well as a few unhealthy treats as rewards when my children have been well behaved. I do not fill their lunchbox with junk everyday preferring to send them off with fruit and healthy foods to help their concentration levels in class.
Pom Bear crisps are crisps that I have been purchasing since my eldest daughter was a baby and they have always been something that each of my children have enjoyed. These crisps are always available for a reasonable price and I usually buy 3 x 6 packet multipack for £2.50 from a local supermarket and I like to stock up on a few bags when they are on offer to save myself some pennies.
These crisps are teddy bear shaped and very light, you can almost see through them because they are so thin and you can see lots of aerated bubbles in the crisps. These are the perfect size for little hands to hold and the teddy is quite intricate featuring arms, legs, a head and all the other things that you would expect a teddy bear to have including ears and eyes. The crisps are a deliciously light crisp that is perfect for young children as they can just suck on the crisp and they will break up much like a flat Quaver. There are ready salted, cheese and onion & salt and vinegar flavours available but cheese & onion are definitely the ones that get eaten the fastest in our household. There is lots of flavouring on the crisps that ends up all over your hands and if you have the ready salted ones then you can find that your hands end up a little bit greasy and messy.
While the bags are smaller than some multipack ones this has it's advantages because the 19 gram bag contains less than 100 calories so is ideal if you are trying to limit your calorie intake or just make sure that your children have a healthy balanced diet. These have been made better over the years, like most crisps, as the amount of saturated fat has been reduced by around 50%. There are no artificial colours, flavours or any other nasties in these crisps and they are gluten free which is ideal if you have a child with a gluten intolerance as these are reasonably priced and nice and tasty still.
These are the perfect sized bag of crisps for little ones as they will last them quite a while without filling them too full of fat and calories and if you are an adult who wants a nice snack that's under 100 calories then these are definitely the ones for you!
These little fellows are a favourite of my five year old son. They come in cheese and onion, salt and vinegar and original flavour. This review is based on the original flavour.
The packet is bright red, it has a big cuddly looking bear on the front wearing a crown. He must be king bear. The pack also shows little pictures of the crisps, these are true to life although a little smaller than actual size.
On the back of the pack it has all the ingredients and nutritional information tables that you may want to read.
When you open a packet of Pom bears you can't help but smile, it is full of these really cute little teddy bears, all waving and with big smiles on their little faces.
They are made of potato and are called a potato snack but they don't have the normal texture of a crisp. They are crunchy but they would melt in your mouth after a while. I am trying to think of something similar, I suppose the closest thing I can think of is Quavers.
The original flavour is just another name for ready salted or plain, they have a lovely taste without being too salty.
Each packet contains 19g of the little bears, this probably equates to about 15 teddies. This is based on a multi pack packet, I think if you buy them as a single pack you get about 25g.
The bears are cooked in 100% sunflower oil, contain no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives. They are also gluten free which is great for people with coeliac disease or other gluten intolerance's. The crisps do contain cows milk and soya.
Each packet contains 97 calories and 5.4g of Fat. This is much lower than many other crisps aimed at children.
They are great fun for children, my boy loves making up stories where he is the big bad wolf coming to eat the bears heads off or acts out fairy tales like Goldilocks and the three bears. They are always a winner at parties and would be brilliant for teddy bear picnics.
You can buy these at most supermarkets and grocery stores, a single pack costs about 45p or a pack of six from the supermarket will set you back £1.16, which I think is quite a bargain.
Finally if anyone can help, for some reason I think these might have been called pom bar, perhaps I am going mad, can anyone remember this ??
I will always try to buy crisps and snacks that are lower in fat and calories if I can and when buying these Pom-Bears there is no exception. They are low in both fat and calories and are cooked in pure sunflower oil which makes them a rather healthier choice when buying snacks such as this.
I first saw them in a multi packet in Pound land for the bargain price of £1 surprise, surprise! I had only seen them sold as single packets before this and I don't think my local Morrison's sell them in multi packet bags at all. However I feel £1 for 6 bags represents very good value for money. This even more so as each bag contains a rather good amount of crisp type snacks even though it only weighs in at 19 grams which is less than a Walkers bag of crisps you do feel as though you are getting more for your money.
The packaging of the crisps is good and unlike any others as the main theme of both packaging and the crisps themselves is the Teddy Bear shape. This is plastered across the front of the packet and looks appealing to children.
The Pom-Bears I have purchased were the Cheese and Onion flavour ones but I have seen them in a plain salted flavour too. The packet for the cheese and onion ones comes in a deep green colour where as the ready salted is red.
The main reason I got these crisps was for my little man Jack to eat and seeing as how they appeal in so many ways for both him and I it worked out like a good purchase and he loves them and I do too. Not only are they cooked in sunflower oil making them a healthier choice, they also contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and are gluten free. Jack just likes them because they are shaped like Teddy Bears.
The Pom-Bears themselves are basically a potato snacks which are light and airy in texture. They seem extremely crunchy and have a wonderful texture. Having tried both the ready salted and the cheese and onion, I would say that I prefer the taste of the Cheese and Onion which still has a slight saltiness to it and not an overly strong cheese flavour.
Most of the teddy bears have been dismembered in some way or another having been slightly crushed in transit and this makes it easier to eat as I don't have to worry about biting a poor little teddies head off!
Per bag they only have 95 calories and 0.6grams of saturated fat. This is not too bad considering it is probably one of the only crisp type snacks to actually fill me up slightly and make me feel as though I couldn't eat another 3 bags.
Overall I think they are one of the best crisp type snacks available to buy. They are considerably better for you than a bag of standard crisps and are at a very cheap price. They taste good and fill you up so I don't think I could really find fault with them
A five out of five star award and a high recommendation.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
Pom bears are a cute corn snack aimed for the target market of parents, who are more likely to purchase these for their children. They have been around for a long time as I can remember having them when I was little and so do my much older brothers.
They are available in 3 flavours, ready salted, cheese and onion and salt and vinegar.
You can purchase them from your local supermarket or corner shop in multipacks or singly. Depending where you purchase them from the price will vary. I purchase my daughters from Sainsbury's in a pack of 6 for £1.39. I think this is good value for money.
Each packet contains 19grams of these cute little bears. There are only 94 calories, 5.2g fat and 0.3g sugar.
These tasty snacks are suitable for vegetarians and are free from gluten, artificial colours, flavouring and preservatives.
We usually purchase the cheese and onion flavour which seems to be my daughters favourite. Each bear is around 1.5 inches in height and 2mm thick. The flavouring is not over powering and doesn't leave a nasty after taste in your mouth. There kind of like skips in the way that they slowly start to melt as they hit you tongue.
It must be a bit of a fight inside this crisp packet with all those bears, as i have found that a fair few of them dont make it out alive, being broken into crums. But you do get a good hand full of winning in tacked bears.
These are a great fun way to get your kids to enjoy their crisps.
Pom Bear crips are fantastic and it wasn't that long ago that I discovered them for the first time and now I find them very addictive and nice to eat as a snack and my son loves them too. He could easily sit down with a packet and eat the whole lot in one go and he's only 2 years old, although we try and ration him. These crisps come in three flavours at the moment. You have ready salted in the red packet, salt and vinegar in the blue packet, and cheese and onion which are my favourites in the green packet. Each flavour is sold in a bright packet with a big teddy bear on the front.
The bright packets make them attractive and easily recongnisable to kids and also easy to find when you are in the supermarket which is handy. I also think that the bright packaging appeals to children too.
Another great thing about these Pom-bear crisps is that they are fair bit lower in fat and calories than some other brands. This is a bonus for kids of all ages that they are not as unhealthy for them as other types.
In regards to how they taste they are extremely good and look cute as well. Each one is shaped like a teddy bear and dissolves on your tongue when you eat them. They are small enough too to be a handy little snack to eat when you're on the move.
Each bag is pretty lighweight but they do contain a good number of bears in there unlike some packets where you don't much for your money at all.
If you've never tried these crisps before you should give them a go as they are very nice and you will definately want more of all three flavours.
Pom Bears have always been favourite crisps of mine as they take me back to my childhood. I was so pleased to have brought some the other day, although I have noticed a significant difference in the taste of them since when I had them ten years ago.
I have only ever seen Ready Salted, Salt and Vinegar and Cheese and Onion flavour crisps which are the basic three flavours, therefore not being as diverse as crisps such as Walkers.
The packaging for them has a cartoon bear on the front as well as images of the crisps, and it is all brightly coloured, definately making it attractive and a favourite to the kids. The front of the packet does however contain important nutritional information which is good.
Pom bears are great as they have no artificial flavours, no artificial colours, no artificial preservaties and they are gluten free. They contain cow's milk and soya as an allergy warning, however the crisps are vegeterian improved which is great and means almost everyone can try these.
The reason I brought these were not only because they took me back to my childhood but because the nutritional data was fantastic compared to what it used to be. In each pack of 19g, there is only a mere 97 calories, and this is actually really good for a decent packet of crisps i think, and the crisps are cooked in pure sunflower oil which makes them healthier.
These are super cute and all children seem to love them as they aren't shaped like your average crisp, they are in the shape of little bears which is lovely. You get a good amount of them in each packet also.
So what do they taste like? I do think these taste really nice, however I'm not sure if they are for everyone. I have noticed that over the years they have become a lot less salty, and I think they have lost a lot of their flavour in a bid to get healthier, although needless to say I do repurchase these because I think they're a great snack for me and my family as we all enjoy them!
An individual packet of these retails at around 40p although I rarely see individual packets around - usually only in corner shops and convenience stores. I buy my Pom Bears in packets of 6 from supermarkets such as Asda and Tesco. They retail in this multipack for around £1.20 which equals out at around 20p a packet which is fantastic.
Overall, I'd say these are worth a look out because they are fairly tasty crisps, I just wish there was a greater range of flavours to try! Thanks for reading.
I love crisps - be it proper crisps or corn snacks, theyre always in my
shopping basket. But Pom-Bear's are amongst my favourites.
They are technically not a crisp - but a 'teddy shaped potato snack'. They
are made by little known Intersnack Limited and they come in a variety of
flavours - ready salted, cheese and onion, salt and vinegar, prawn cocktail etc.
You can buy them individually - usually for round 25p, or in multipacks of
6 that you can pick up in the pound shop. The bags are very child friendly
with a big, cuddly teddy bear on the front.
Inside the brightly coloured bags are oodles of crisps all shaped like
teddy bears. They are really flavoursome (the cheese and onion ones are my favourite - and really taste like they should) and have a really good crunch. They are perfect for young children too, because - unlike proper crisps - they are crunchy but not sharp, so theres no jagged edges to get stuck in little throats if they haven't been chewed properly.
They're also much better than your average pack of crisps because they
contain no artificial colours, flavours, flavour enhancers of
preservatives. And they're cooked in sunflower oil which is naturally low
in saturated fats. They do contain cows milk and soya though so be careful allergy sufferers.
Per bag, on average there are about 94 calories and 5.2g of fat (so much
better than your bag of proper crisps if your on a diet but having crisp
Your kids will love the packaging, and you will love the taste - great
Pom Bears (original flavour - in the red packets) are my crisps of choice when it comes to packed lunches for work or an accompaniment to a sandwich at home.
They are my go-to potato snack for several reasons...
Reason 1: These little bears are LOW in calories, extremely low in calories when compared to other types of crisps. They're only 97 calories in a standard bag.
Reason 2: Although the standard bag is only 19g you get a lot of bears in there! This has a lot to do with their bubbly crunchiness, they're mostly filled with air (a lot like the light texture of Quavers) but at the same time I find they are just as filling as regular crisps.
Reason 3: They're light and crunchy. I really don't like heavy, greasy, overly salty crisps. Pom Bears are a delight to munch on for this reason.
Reason 4: They're cheap (usually on offer - about a £1 in supermarkets for a multipack of 6) and my local Sainsburys sells them. You can also pick them up individually in Superdrug where they sell them at the bargain price of around 36p.
Reason 5: I like the taste! (Always very important) I love Pom Bears!
Pom Bears are gluten free and contain no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives which is always reassuring to know. In a standard pack there's 0.3g of salt and 5.4 grams of fat which I think is reasonable and definitely a lot lower than your regular packet of crisps.
Obviously (judging by the packet design) these crisps are aimed at children. I presume this is why they're free from all sorts of nasties and are low in calories, salt etc. But don't let the un-sophisticated appearance put you off... or the bear shaped crisps inside (look! they're waving!!) make you feel, as an adult, you're not allowed to enjoy them. You are. I promise!
Nowadays we are careful about what we let our children eat. These high quality potato snacks are just the job. Gluten free, with no artificial flavourings, colourings or preservatives and only lightly seasoned. And because kids love them theres never any waste!
