Honey Barbecue Wholegrain Snacks (Marks & Spencer's) [By @SpectreUK]

I’m always looking for alternative snacks to potato crisps. Not that I dislike potato crisps. I absolutely love them but probably a bit too much. These Honey Barbecue wholegrain snacks from Marks & Spencer's were sported on the packet as a good source of fibre and sounded like a healthy alternative. There was a sweet barbecue smell on opening the packet. The large crinkly squares of wholegrain had a decent crunch and then melted in my mouth. There were predominant flavours of tomato and chilli spice with an overall sweetness from a good dollop of honey, mixed in with a hint of saltiness. The orange tint to the squares was supplied by paprika which also added to the spiciness, and a taste of onion mixed with barley moved my tastebuds cheerfully along into the aftertaste. I would definitely have these wholegrain snacks again as they made for an excellent sweet and spicy crunchy melt in the mouth moreish barbecue flavoured alternative healthy feeling flavoursome snack (... and breathe!).
