I love crisps, there?s no getting over it, crisps, crisps. Except crisps can be expensive now, oh and too many contain gluten which I am avoiding at the moment. But the pound shops always have crisps, and for some reason Seabrooks are always in stock. So a quid for a 6 pack which then added 2 free was put into the basket.
So here I am, sat in front of the pc eating a pack of the Beefy variety which apart from the Prawn Cocktail are my favourite! But then I turned to the ingredients and was astonished to find they are suitable for vegetarians. Beef does come from a cow right? Something hasn?t changed when I wasn?t looking, perhaps they have turned into giant mushrooms.
Presumably they think the Beefy flavour can be imitated by the yeast extract and onion powder. Yeast extract is that Marmite stuff that they try to pretend has a meaty flavour and the onion powder to try and make a lovely steak and onion flavour. The answer is always in the taste though!
One of the good things about Seabrook is that they fill the bags right up with nice crinkled crisps. These usually stay nice and intact, they are always quite thick so you get a nice decent crunch. So you get a nice decent crunch but I'm not sure you get a nice decent flavour, despite not having any in the first flavour that comes is vinegar, it ends up being the prevalent smell, I know its not vinegar but my mouth is stinging, especially my tongue.
It's the Marmite flavour trying to break through, thing is, I'm a loathe it when it comes to Marmite, I really don?t like it. So I don?t like them and nothing is going to improve them whilst it is in it. I'm back off to Poundland to get the Prawn Cocktail ones!
We just crinkle-cut the finest potatoes, cook them in pure sunflower oil, which is higher in poly-unsaturates, and add lower in sodium sea salt. We avoid additives, MSG, GM and nasty saturated fats.
