Advantages: crisp, crunchy and tasty
Disadvantages: stick to your teeth
Although I have quite a sweet tooth I also enjoy eating the odd packet of crisp or savoury snack. One that I purchased recently was Frazzles which are crispy bacon flavoured corn snacks. When I spotted them I just had to buy them as they reminded me of being little again plus the fact that I love anything bacon flavoured.
I purchased a multi-pack of the Smiths Frazzles from my local Iceland store where they were on special offer for just £1.00 for a bag of 6 individual packets.
The frazzles come packaged in a burgundy coloured foil packet with has the smith's logo in the top corner and a picture of the frazzles on the front. On the back of the packet you can find more detailed information about the Frazzles including full ingredients listings, nutritional information and allergy advice. It also states that the frazzles although bacon flavoured are in fact still suitable for vegetarians.
As with any crisps or savoury snacks they are not the healthiest option but I like to have the odd treat every now and again and these do contain less calories and fat than some others do now. Each individual packet from a multi-pack contains the following nutritional information:
Calories - 113
Sugar - 1.0g
Fat - 5.3g
Saturates - 0.5g
Salt - 0.66g
As soon as you open the packet you can smell the quite strong bacon flavour which smells lovely and certainly makes my mouth water. The frazzles are rectangular in shape with ridges that run along them. The frazzles are a yellowish colour with a reddish brown stripe to make them look like rashers of streaky bacon. They are very crisp and crunchy in texture and have a lovely strong bacon flavour. Personally I don't think you can tell that they actually don't contain any bacon at all and they don't taste at all artificial. I think the only think that I find a little annoying about these frazzles is that they do stick to your teeth when eating them but as they taste so good I try not to let this put me off!
Summary: A very tasty savoury snack!
