Nando’s Peri Peri Chicken Crisps [Medium] (Sainsbury’s)

I heard about these crisps a while back, but it is one of those things that has taken its time making its appearance in my neck of the woods. The Nando’s crisps aren’t just available as ‘medium’ spice there is also a ‘hot’ variety about.
Firstly, I would like to take a minute to appreciate the packaging, it is written in a very light hearted style and it made me smile. It is reminiscent of some of the smoothie companies that also seem to pride themselves on slightly daft and amusing text! As you can’t quite read it in the photograph above I will rewrite it: “These ones are medium. But not the kind of medium that can contact the spirit world.”
The crisps themselves are nicely spiced, but not hot enough to offend. When I am in Nando’s restaurant I usually order my chicken spice as ‘medium’ and I felt these came in at just under that heat. The spice is good though, and the added flavour of chicken makes these fantastic crisps rather lovely. The texture also works too; they are a good quality crisp with a strong crunch. Rather yummy, and I am keeping my eye out for the ‘hot’ version.

Yeah - I'd buy these.

The Nando's at home sauces are nice too, but you can't beat the peri-peri mayonnaise dips from the store itself.

I haven't tried the dips, but will check them out when I am next in store.
