My family love potatoes and crisps is one snack that we cannot be without. I strongly believe in healthy eating and there has been many occasions when I have left out “crisps “ from the weekly shopping list due to the fact that they are fried with many additives included in the flavourings. This only resulted in moans from my family as they all love their bag of crisps in their lunch boxes together with their sandwich and fruit. I have tried replacing them with the baked versions too, but this again resulted in complaints and groans from my family. Apparently I have been told that no lunch is complete and satisfying without sandwiching some crisps in between your sandwich for that perfect bite!!!
My crisp dilemma had become a nightmare so when Walkers offered me to sample their NEW Walkers MightyLights ridged crisps I jumped at the chance. The crisps are ridged and have 30% less fat than your average packet of crisp. They are available in 3 flavours Cheese and Onion, Lightly Salted and Roast Chicken. Furthermore the crisps are made from real potato with no artificial colours or preservatives and no MSG, they're perfect for lunch boxes.
Being vegetarians we only sampled the cheese and onion and the lightly salted flavours although Walkers say that the roast chicken flavour is suitable for vegetarians but we chose not try them. The crisps were crisp, with a lovely crunch, the ridges on the crisps meant that they were perfect for dipping into salsas etc for serving at parties. .
The lightly salted crisps were not too salty and perfect in taste, the cheese and onion were not as strong as the normal cheese and onion crisps and frankly I preferred the delicate flavour compared to the original pungent cheese and onion crisps. I also found the crisps did not feel too oily to touch and they did not compromise in texture or flavour in anyway. When I packed these crisps in my families lunch boxes, I had no complaints about the taste, the only disappointment was that we all love salt and vinegar so please Walkers introduce this flavour to the range too.
Thank you to walkers for introducing us to these healthier versions of crisps, my family loved them and we will definitely make the change to these healthier option. Mighty Lights are available in shops nationwide and currently retail at approximately £1.80 for a multi-pack of six. These were slightly more expensive than the Walkers originals, but I guess its worth paying a little extra for the health benefits.
