Walkers Baked Salt & Vinegar
Advantages: 70% Less Fat. No Artificial Colours.
Disadvantages: Not many flavours to choose from.
Whilst doing some retail therapy in town a while ago I stopped off at Subway for my lunch, and the meal deal with my 6 inch sub was for a bag of crisps and a drink. There wasn't much to choose from in all honesty, so I grabbed a bag of Walkers Baked - Salt and Vinegar flavour and proceeded to munch on my lunch.
- What's in them? -
No Artificial Colours
Suitable for Vegetarians
Suitable for Coeliacs
Each 25g pack contains;
2.0g Fat (0.3g is Saturated Fat)
Compare that to a normal bag of Walkers Salt and Vinegar which contains around 8g of fat and 131 Calories, your being a little kinder to your hips.
- My Experience -
The best thing for me about these crisps is that they aren't greasy. I find that normal Walkers which have been fried within an inch of their life are usually very oily and leave my hands a bit greasy after eating them. People will say that Walkers Baked aren't as flavoursome as the original crisps but I think they taste a hell of a lot better. What your tasting in the original walkers is the fat and oil which makes them tasty I guess, Walkers Baked taste fresh, wholesome and crispy. Compared to the wafer thin slices of crisps you get with original crisps, Walkers Baked are thicker and far tastier.
The only downside to Walkers Baked is that there aren't many flavours to choose from. I do prefer the more original "boring" tastes of crisps like ready salted and salt and vinegar, but others will say differently and be put off from these crisps as there isn't much to choose from.
- Price & Availability -
Walkers baked are around the same price as normal Walkers crisps so there isn't the excuse that "healthier stuff costs more" as these are the same price. Walkers Baked are currently on offer in Asda the 6 bag Multipacks are 2 for £2.50. You can buy multipacks of one specific flavour or they do multipacks with 2 bags of Salt and Vinegar, 2 of Cheese and Onion and 2 Ready Salted, so there are various packs to choose from. Salt and Vinegar are my personal favourite with Sour Cream and Chive coming a close second.
- Overall -
I'd recommend everyone to give Walkers Baked a try, they taste and feel a lot different than the original greasy Walkers crisps, but they are a good way to cut down on a little bit of fat from your diet and replacing high fat treats for lower ones. OK so the flavours aren't that different from normal crisps, and kids will probably say that they taste horrible but I think they taste fresher, crunchier and healthier than the oily original Walkers crisps. Great if your trying to watch what you eat but still indulge in a little treat every now and then.
