Kettle Bites Coconut, Lime & Chilli (Asda) By @SpectreUK
I’m always on the lookout for alternative snacks to crisps and nuts, and also new and interesting flavours. These new baked Wholegrain Waves from the Kettle Bites range are Coconut, Lime and Chilli flavour. The baked wholegrain ‘crisps’ sounded pretty healthy to me with their 50% less fat than fried (as stated on the packet). This reminded me of Thai meals, such as my favourite Tum Yum noodle soup made with coconut milk, lemongrass and spices. So I was really looking forward to opening the packet…
I instantly liked the shape of the wavy brown and orange squares. There was a hearty smell of ginger, coriander, chilli, lime and paprika from the waves inside the packet. On first crunchy taste I initially noted a wholesome mixture of spices with an undertone of a mild chilli heat. There was lime here too and quite strong in flavour taking over from the spicy chilli flavour with a tangy slightly sour citrus edge. Following on from the lime was tomato which broke on my tastebuds from the last wave of the ‘crisp’. I though these Kettle Bites Coconut, Lime & Chilli were very tasty indeed, the only downside was that with the multitude of spices, lime and tomato the coconut was overpowered and didn’t get much of a look in at all. However, having said that I would definitely have these again and am already looking forward to the next packet from the six-pack we bought from the supermarket.
