Crisps without the added guilt!

Advantages: Low fat,low calories,tasty
Disadvantages: The taste is still in your mouth for a long time afterwards
Although there have been a few different Quaver flavours in recent years (prawn cocktail, salt and vinegar), the only flavour for me is the good old fashioned cheesy flavour.I've got a bit of a thing for cheesy crisps and am a big fan of Mini Cheddars, Wotsits et cetera. Like Wotsits in fact, Quavers are part of Walkers 99 calories or less range (also including French Fries and I think, Squares). The amount of calories in Quavers is very low indeed (87) and a standard size packet contains less than 5 grams of fat, so you can eat them and feel guilt-free if you're trying to lose weight. They're light and very crunchy, and they actually taste cheesy unlike many cheap brands of cheese and onion. The only downside is that the taste does linger in your mouth for quite a long time after you've eaten them,which does get a bit horrible after a while.I think they can be added to the list of things not to eat before an interview,a meeting or a date,along with garlic and onions :)
One more thing,as I'm getting older,I'm turning into one of those people who believe that packet sizes are shrinking.Or at least,there doesn't seem to be as many crisps in a packet as I remember.Not sure if this really is the case or not,I'm sure someone somewhere has counted,but the price of Walkers crisps is definitely increasing (60p in my local shop),which does put you off of buying them slightly,as it doesn't seem that good value for money for a snack which is very nice but ultimately doesn't fill you up that much.
Summary: Still one of my favourite types of crisp :)
