Walkers Hoops and Crosses Crisps

I was recently asked if we’d like to try the new the Walkers Hoops and Crosses crisps. Now normally I ignore most of these offers but I had a look at the info for them and actually they are something that if I saw when out shopping (or when sat at home doing an online shop in my PJs) then I would get them to try. So I said yes and a little while later a packet arrived with a bag of the crisps and the most adorable monkey toy that Chloe swiftly scooped up to play with and a little book with information which she then proceeded to ‘read’ to the monkey!
Back on topic, the crisps – they are baked from multi-grain, contain no artificial flavours or preservatives, have 30 percent less fat than traditional crisps and contain no MSG, making them a healthier or better snack choice. We eat wholegrain bread fairly often and I know some cereals are wholegrain, I’m not surely exactly if we eat enough but if I had two packets of crisps to choose from and one was wholegrain then I would go for that as the ‘better’ version – I mean why wouldnt you?
We were sent a bag of Roast Beef flavour Hoops and Crosses – initially I thought ‘oh no’ as me and the girls are veggies but as it turns out they are veggie friendly, infact all the flavours in the range are. Whilst I wouldnt personally pick Roast Beef flavour for myself or the girls they were actually alright, OH declared they tasted like Monster Munch crisps and Chloe ate them happily. I do like the hoops and crosses shape as Chloe was making little games with them, lining them up etc, turning a snack into something that will keep her attention for a few minutes is always useful so I think I might keep a packet of these in my bag for when we’re out and about.

I’ve already added some salt and vinegar ones to next week’s food shop as I think they’re fun and do have an element of being healthier than other crisps. I wont be letting the girls eat them more often just because these are slightly ‘better’ for you but it’s nice to know when they do have them it’s not all terrible.

I’d be happy to put these in a lunchbox as a treat or take them out of picnics etc. But I do hope they come out with a cheese flavour and especially in a big ‘adult’ sized bag as I’d happily sit and munch on them whilst watching a film! And dont worry, Izzy got a little play with the monkey too.
We were sent the crisps and the lovely monkey toy but as always the thoughts and opinions are my own and these are something that I would have bought to try anyway and actually we do like them and will buy them!
