As many of you will know by now, I have recently started the Weight Watchers diet. I recently bought a whole trolley load of Weight Watchers' food items. One of these items was the Weight Watcher's Smokey Bacon Flavour Corn Bites.
To look at the corn bites remind me of bite sized shredded weight as they have that 'straw basket' look. They are quite chunky, yet in a small way. Each corn bite is triangular shaped. The corn bites are quite dry I find. Good news is that they are baked and not fried and they are also a good source of fibre. There is no artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives either, plus they are suitable for vegetarians.
I am vegetarian...and yet strangely I love Walkers Smokey Bacon Crisps, so I was really looking forward to trying these even though I had a slight incline that being low fat they probably wouldn't have much flavour. How right I was. Whilst the bacon flavour is there...it's just not enough. This results in a bland, slightly-bacony-but-not-enough flavour. So the bacon flavour is there, but only faintly.
Those of you on the Weight Watchers diet will be interested to know that there are 2 points per packet of these corn snacks - so not too bad really. There is 80 calories and 0.3g sugars per packet - so again not too bad. There is 1.3g of fat (of which 0.1g is saturated) and 0.4g in a packet. So overall, they are not too bad at all...if only they had more flavour.
I would recommend these if you are on the Weight Watchers diet, especially if you want the crisps without the points. Apart from that, I wouldn't recommend them as they are a bit tasteless.
Thanks for reading!
Weight Watchers Chargrilled Smokey Bacon Flavour Corn Bites
As some of my reviews state I have recently joined Weight Watchers and as so have been trying many of their products. This review is on Weight Watchers Chargrilled Smokey Bacon Flavour Corn Bites.
Weight Watchers 'Bacon Bites' are not closely comparable to other mainstream crisps (as the Cheese Bites ('mini cheddars') or Salt and Vinegar Hoops ('Hoola Hoops') are. The closest comparison is probably Frazzles for taste, but not for shape or texture. They are a good healthy option, as compared to mainstream snack brands they are lower in calories and saturated fat, and therefore a great option for anyone watching their waistline.
The bites are made of thin strands of corn shaped together into a criss cross pattern, looking similar to the breakfast cereal Shreddies. They have a distinctive smokey bacon flavour which is pleasant, although not that strong (there was the odd one with loads of flavour on it). I also found the flavour is lost from my mouth soon after eating. The consistency of the bites is very crunchy but light at the same time. I also found that there were a large quantity in the bag, which left me feeling satisfied (not wanting more like many 'healthy' snacks which are only healthy as there's so few of them!)
The majority of the crisps in my packet had remained in one piece, which I found surprising for such delicate crisps. I bought a six pack of the crisps from Asda for less than £1.19 (so comparable price to other multipacks), but if you just fancy one they are also sold individually.
Here's the nutitional bit....
Each 18g pack is calculated to have 1 Weight Watchers Points value.
The product contains Gluten, Wheat and Milk.
Overall I would recommend these as they were nicely flavoured, crunchy, affordable and most importantly a healthy snack choice.
