Kettle Chips Golden Parsnip, Sweet Potato & Beetroot (Waitrose) By @SpectreUK
Always on the lookout for alternative snacks to crisps and nuts, I may have overstepped the mark here. These Golden Parsnip, Sweet Potato & Beetroot crisps from Kettle Vegetable Chips range encompass three vegetables I’m unsure of. I like parsnips in stew and looking outside at the howling wind and freezing rain this is definitely stew weather. Cinabar would attest to how much I like dumplings, but that’s another story! I’m not keen on sweet potato, although at the hotel we stayed at recently in Bath I was surprised at how nice their sweet potato chips were with my blue cheese and bacon burger, been as though I’d tentatively tried sweet potato chips elsewhere and disliked them. I like beetroot on salad, but in fairly small quantities and definitely not in juice format! So here we go; Golden Parsnip, Sweet Potato & Beetroot crisps…
The curled up Beetroot crisps taste of beetroot without the juice, slightly salty, pepperish and strangely really moreish. The Sweet Potato crisps were slightly less curled up, having a slight sweetness that balanced the strong flavour from the Beetroot crisps. I could easily see why Kettle had mixed them both together. The Golden Parsnip crisps were long thin strips, which tasted of salty dried parsnip, which further mixed that bag of flavours. These Golden Parsnip, Sweet Potato & Beetroot crisps felt like a healthy taste combination of root vegetable flavours, which all complemented each other in different salty, sweet, or slightly pepperesque ways. These assorted vegetable crisps are really nice (no, really). Don’t be put off by the title and give them a try. I’ll definitely have these again!
