Quinoa Chips Sundried Tomato & Roasted Garlic (Morrisons) By @SpectreUK
Sometimes I want something to snack on other than crisps. Don’t get me wrong because I love crisps. I reckon I couldn’t give them up if my life depended on it. Although I did give up smoking nearly twenty years ago, and overly boozing around the same time, and thought beforehand that I probably couldn’t give them up. Due to a change in dietary necessities I had to give up nuts a few years back, and cravings for coated salted peanuts still haunt me. Fortunately that hasn’t happened with crisps, but I do like to hunt around for alternative snacks to widen the range of my snacking. This Quinoa grain snack from the Eat Real range by Cofresh, in Leicester, is rather ostentatiously flavoured Sundried Tomato and Roasted Garlic flavour.
There was quite a heady garlic odour on opening the packet, which made me worry a little, as I was eating these wavy grain chips at work with my lunch. Never mind, my afternoon meeting sounded really boring so if I breathe over everyone it should shorten the conversation! Tomato came secondary in the smell, which was unusual to my senses as tomato can often be quite strong in crisp flavours, and this heightened the anticipation of a shorter meeting. On first crunchy tasty the initial tomato blast took over from the garlic in the race to my tastebuds. It certainly tasted like sundried tomato to me, and then came the garlic arriving for second podium and travelling into the aftertaste. These Quinoa grain chips are very tasty indeed. I hope to find some other flavours, but for now I’ll go and breathe all over my colleagues…
