“ Brand: Sharwood / Type: Snacks „
In my house quite often my Mum will attempt to make a home made curry. By that I mean she will fry some meat and onions and throw on some sort of ready made sauce (you can really see why I'm so great in the kitchen eh lol!). When she does this though she does buy puppodums mainly for my Step-Father who loves them and eats them like crisps where as me and Mum are naan girls!
However the other day he only ate half the container of these and they were sat in the kitchen whilst I was making my tea of my favourite marmalade on toast and I whipped them to munch on hence this review!
Clear square plastic container with a round hole in the middle of it where the puppodums sit. On the top of that there is a clear and orange pull off plastic covering (rubbish for storing these) and on the front there is a photograph of some Coriander and garlic puppodus and I'm told in black and white writing that these are Sun-Dried In Madras Sharwoods 10 Puppodums Crushed Garlic & Coriander 'Traditional Indian Recipe'. Other information on the front of this container tells me the best before date, I'm given nutritional information and there is an at a glance nutritional chart too, I'm told you can warm these through if desired, ingredients and allergy advice is given, I'm told they are Vegan and contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and contact details for Sharwoods are given. Nice enough, bright packaging this is but as I stated earlier once you pull back the plastic lid type thing it flaps about and so you can't reseal it. On this lid I'm told they stay fresh for about 3 days however not in this container they don't so you need to pop them in something else which is a wee bit annoying I think!
Light golden yellow in colour, slightly rough looking in texture with a slight smell of garlic and coriander to them. You cant see the garlic as that is blended into the puppodums but you can see dried flakes of coriander adorning each sparsely.
Taste wise these are ok. These puppodums have a sort of fried type of taste to them although they are not onc bit greasy. They are thin and crispy and you can really taste chickpeas which of course what they are fundamentally made from. The garlic taste is very light as is the coriander but it's all there very well blended indeed.
All In All:
A tasty, light puppodum which is really crispy, not too flimsy (you can use toppings on these without them caving in) and they're not greasy. Not my favourite puppodums and lets be honest you can't beat a restaurants but these are nice enough, flavoursome and light so me, I'll be pinching these again!
Produced in a factory which handles wheat flour.
