Air Dried Pear Crisps (Waitrose) [By @SpectreUK]



I’m always on the lookout for crispy snacks, especially ones that are healthy that might stop my ever increasing tummy from filling the room. Granted it’s a good place to rest my beer mug, but that’s not the point. These Air Dried Pear Crisps were produced by Perry Court Farm in Kent. As part of the “5 a day”, they were vegetarian friendly and were made with 100% home grown pears, sourced locally to the farm. The 20g bag was 67 calories, with 11.3g sugar and 0.1g of fat. Opening the bag there was a mild smell of pear. I tipped the contents out to see lots of dried light brown slices of pear shaped crisps, each with a blackened brownish edge. These pear crisps looked very crunchy indeed, so I was rather surprised to find that they were more chewy than crispy. There was a mild sweet taste of pear which made my mouth water as I chewed these crisps. I thought these pear crisps were a very innovative, healthy feeling and tasty snack, and would have these again... especially as crisps are one of my favourite snacks and these could help decrease my ever growing waistline! Mission 5 a day; apple for breakfast; banana, tomato and pear crisps with my sandwiches and yoghurt at lunchtime, orange juice to wash it down... Oh, yeah! Then beer with my dinner... can’t be bad! ;-D

Would be great to stick these crisps strategically into a lump of vanilla ice cream! :-D
