REAL D’Lites – Vine Ripened Tomato and Herb Bites (Boots)
I do like the crisps from the REAL range, and was pleased to find a new flavour. I have to admit to being a little cautious in my enthusiasm as these crisps are lower fat, which made me worry a little.
In fact I say ‘crisps’ but these aren’t even made from potato, they are actually made from cassava (another root vegetable), and from there appearance looked like thin Snack-a-Jacks, curved into a bowl shape.
Unlike Snack-a-Jacks though, the texture is much crisper and there is no aftertaste of savoury popcorn. The product is so full of seasoning and flavour, it made them a wonderful taste experience. There is a rich sweet strong tomato base, that tastes fresh and natural, and a lovely aftertaste of garlic and oregano. I felt the seasoning was spot on, and worked beautifully with the tomato flavour. These were a very tasty snack, and when I noticed they were just 83cals per bag, given the size of the bag, I think I have to throw in the word: genius! Yum!
