Review: Walkers Mighty Lights
This week we were sent some Walkers Mighty Lights to review. Ace. We love crisps. We eat a lot of crisps, and have tried many, many different kinds.
Walkers Mighty Lights are available in three flavours – lightly salted, cheese & onion, and roast chicken.
This is what Walkers have to say about them....
"With 30% less fat than standard crisps, Mighty Lights are perfect for kids' lunchboxes. They are tasty, ridged crisps that come in three flavours - roast chicken, cheese and onion and lightly salted. All the flavours are suitable for vegetarians, and are available in shops nationwide. They're made from real potatoes with no artificial colours of preservatives- and they're a source of fibre."
So what did we think…..?
I really liked them. My favourite flavour is the lightly salted and they really are! Not too salty, and very tasty. I like the ridge texture and the thickness which is a little bit more than regular Walkers. They are crunchy and very moreish.
The children liked all of them to be honest. They asked to try some as soon as our packets arrived, and really enjoyed them. They asked for the ‘new crisps’ when we were putting together a picnic for the park. They weren’t even bothered which flavour they had. For once they didn’t argue and just ate whichever flavour they got. Highly unusual.
The Dad likes them too. Don’t underestimate how much of a recommendation this is. He’s hard to please in the crisp department. He had a bag and I did my serious research bit by asking him if he liked them. He said “yes, they were nice”. The girls and I looked at him suspiciously as if he’d been swapped in the middle of the night for his more generous and affable doppelganger, but no, it was still him. I asked him if he was sure. He said he was. Huzzah! If only he was this easy to please with my housework efforts (or lack of). His favourite flavour is roast chicken, which do actually taste like roast chicken, which can only be a good thing, surely?
We eat a lot of crisps in our house. They are our snack of choice by a mile. Crisps are one of those things that never run out because we keep an eye on the supply box to make sure we never start to run low. That and milk. And maybe wine. Just to be sociable though, you understand.
We have tried low-fat versions of crisps before and never really liked them enough to buy them (The Dad especially is a fussy personage). We like these. The fact that they have 30% less fat than regular crisps is a welcome step in the right direction for us. We’re never going to give up crisps so if we can eat some which have that little bit less fat in them, then this is good news. With a bit of luck Officer Lunchbox at the school will approve too!
