popchips Review

popchips are a huge snack in America and now we have them here!  I think America should stop trying to hog all the good stuff and am glad they are at least willing to share these.  popchips have a celebrity following so I had to give them a try myself to see what all the fuss was about, so I was very pleased to be sent a lovely selection to review.

popchips come in five different flavours, including original, barbeque, salt & pepper, sea salt & vinegar and sour cream & onion.  I was a fan of the barbeque, salt & pepper was well received by hubbie and the kids were quite happy to munch on any of them!

popchips are popped with heat and pressure to make a naturally delicious crisp with all the flavour and less than half the fat of fried crisps.  There are even less than 100 calories per pack and no fake colours or flavours.  Given how healthy they seem I was surprised how nice they actually taste, very flavoursome, the healthier aspect has not compromised the taste in the slightest.

No cholesterol is another huge plus!  As although I am slim built I do worry about what is going on inside of my body.  My diet could definitely do with improvement, so reaching for the popchips instead of my usual brand of crisps is a great start (and good timing to coincide with my new fitness challenge).

If you love crisps but really need to think about changes to your eating habits and a healthier alternative, I think these could be them!  The fact they are appetizing does not hurt either… Lacking the grease of fried crisps I think these will soon be as big a hit here as they are in America.

Eldest “I love them, they are beautiful, thank you for reviewing them mummy….” must have decided that was enough buttering up of mummy as he then said, “Now can I have another packet please…”.  He must enjoy them to try and get another packet out of me.  Being a mean mummy I of course made him wait until tomorrow.  But they are so nice these packs need to be savoured over a few days!

To find out more head to the website and you can purchase them from Waitrose £0.69 (RRP) for a single-serve bag and £1.89 (RRP) for a share bag (85g).
