Market Deli Pita Chips - Roasted Garlic with Mediterranean herbs @Walkers_crisps [by @NLi10]

While in the Co-Op on the way to a nice long walk I spotted these in the exciting new special offer section.  They are made by Walkers, but they aren't technically crisps.  What they seem like is large sheets of pita bread smashed into edible size pieces after being lovingly roasted and covered in flavour.

They look and feel a bit luxury too - like Kettle Chips - and they are more of an experience than a snack. I know I bring up the fictional dinner party a lot, but these would certainly get served.

While spicy salsa seems a little odd and it feels like they just used the text off the tortilla chips by mistake.  I know these are very Italian themed, but I'd treat these like a poppadom and head straight for the mango chutneys and similar dips.  The texture is great (and I'm not a pita fan) and they crunch and snap really well. The garlic is the main flavour, but it's not overpowering. I'd certainly see these being described as 'more-ish' by guests and the bowl emptying before any of the regular crisps.

Stick this with onion humus and a bit of balsamic and you have the perfect side for a little garden party - even if you don't invite anyone else and just hide behind the shed with a good book.
