“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Crisps „
I discovered these crisps this week doing my shop in Sainsburys.
They are obviously an attempt at the market of well known brand crisp with a similar name and seeing as I love those... I thought I would try these.
PACKAGE AND COST
These crisps are a multi pack of 6 packs 2 x 3 different flavours costing currently two bags (12 single packets) for £1.60.
The bag is bright purple and so stands out, with a monster type thing on the front holding crisps. The packets inside are different colours relating to the flavour - green for pickled onion, brown for roast beef and red for hot and spicy, all mentioned on the front of the pack.
INGREDIENTS AND NUTRITION ETC
As with most Sainsbury's products there is a snapshot of the nutrition facts - cal 111, fat 5.7g, sat fat o.6g, salt 0.52g and total sugar 1.3g. The is pretty similar for each flavour and is based upon a single pack weighing 22g.
On the back of the packet is much more detail for each flavour, pack isze, per 100g and recommended daily allowance figures.
The ingredients are listed speratly for each flavour and do differ, I won't go into these as I would behere all day! But just to say these are maize and potatoe snack crisps, with natural colour and flavours apparently.
The one thing I do like is that along with the seperate ingredients, they also list specific allergy advice for each flavour; very important for suffers as they are not the same for each flavour.
WHAT I THINK
The flavours are great very rich and tangy, perhaps a little too strong for some people and are similar to the other well known brand.
The crisps themselves are in easy to pop in your mouth size for an adult and quite sturdy/crunchy.
I think they rival the competetors well and are a great alternative to standard crisps, which I am sure children would enjoy too.
My only down side is the usual point that the multi pack crisps end up with ony about half a filled pack of crisps! a few more in each pack would be nice!
