Burts Lentil Waves: Thai Sweet Chilli [By @SpectreUK]

Burts of Roborough in Devon must know that I like to find alternative snacks to crisps in order to diversify my munching. They must know because it says "alternative snack" on the packet and they sent me this one try, right? Described as "combining the sweet and spicy fusion of chillies, warm ginger and fragrant lemongrass for an irresistible Asian tang", put Cinabar off immediately. Cinabar hates lemongrass. I certainly don't mind the stuff, although having said that, too much of it can taste a little (or a lot) like 80's washing up liquid. I say 80's because I was a kid then and believe me when I say that kids try to taste everything!

On opening the packet there was a spicy chilli and ginger smell with only a touch of lemongrass, so Cinabar will be missing out on this packet. The small Lentil Waves had a good crunch to them with an initial taste of taste of ginger and mild chilli, followed by the light lemongrass flavour and a sweetness the dulled it's taste even further. These crisps had a mild spicy tang and were a healthy feeling alternative snack in a lunchbox sized bag for easy eating on the go. Thanks Burt. :-)
