We all get excited about Christmas and Pringles have certainly brought a bit of festive fun to their ever popular potato snacks this year. They have released two limited edition flavours just in time for the festive season, Sweet Cinnamon and Mint Choc.
So, I can imagine you are all thinking – what do they taste like? Well with my husband being a lover of Pringles I put him to the taste test along with my children. He found the Sweet Cinnamon quite tasty once he got round the sweet flavour on a crisp and actually enjoyed munching his way through the tube. I thought they were ok and had a few as an evening snack.
Unfortunately the Mint Choc didn’t fare so well with us, the immediate bite seemed quite intriguing but the strong minty aftertaste really didn’t seem right on a crisp. I have some friends coming over this weekend who I will share these with to see what other views people have on these limited edition flavours.
For us as a family we enjoyed the Sweet Cinnamon but the Mint Choc weren’t for us. It’s lovely to try new and exciting flavours though and these are only limited editions – so if you fancy trying some for yourself, get to the shops quick!
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions. We are not paid for reviews although we do receive the product to try out and enable us to write the review.
Everyone loves munching on some crisps for a tasty snack so when I was sent some of the new Walkers Mighty Lights crisps to try, I knew I’d have plenty of willing taste testers at home to give me their thoughts.
With just 114 calories per pack and having 30% less fat than standard crisps these have got to be worth a try. For an everyday snack or lunch boxes, these are ideal knowing that you are eating a tasty snack that doesn’t pile on the pounds! It also means they are handy to keep in your bag for when you have that urge to snack or to have a pack with a glass of wine knowing you are not adding too much extra fat and calories to your day.
Another bonus with these crisps are that all flavours are suitable for vegetarians, great seeing as me and husband aren’t meat eaters so it’s good to know we can enjoy these crisps just as much as anyone else.
The Walkers Mighty Lights crisps themselves are made from real potatoes with no artificial colours or preservatives and are a source of fibre. Each crisp is ridged giving it that extra texture with each bite and they come in three varieties of flavours – Roast Chicken, Cheese & Onion and Lightly Salted.
So time to taste and 5 yr old Miss M was first up eager to open a bag. She tried the lightly salted variety as she is not keen on too much flavour with her crisps. The packet didn’t last long as she sat there munching them and when I asked for her thoughts on them I got “Yummy, I really like them mummy”.
Mister B also went for the Lightly Salted, and his verdict was “Mummy can I have some more”.
Daddy tried the Roast Chicken and thought they were really quite delicious, definitely something he’d be happy to eat again. He said the flavour wasn’t too strong, there could be more but he was quite happy with them and said it actually meant that the flavour wasn’t overpowering. He really enjoyed the texture of the crisps being a bit of a fan of ridge style crisps.
He also taste tested the Cheese & Onion, as this is one of his favourite flavours, and it didn’t disappoint. He’d happily eat these in his pack lunch at work each day.
I tried them and although I have nothing particularly against them, they wouldn’t be my crisp of choice. I’d definitely purchase them again for the rest of the family as they all enjoyed them and knowing that they are that bit healthier than normal crisps, being 30% less fat, that is a bonus. I’d much rather them eat lower fat snacks if possible as that leaves room for other treats now and again.
So overall, the Walkers Mighty Lights were a success in this house, something that had a good crunch and texture and enough flavour to keep everyone happy. A good choice of flavours too, something for everyone. We’d recommend Walkers Mighty Lights – why don’t you give them a try?
