Walkers Sunbites Pitta Bakes (Ocado) [By @SpectreUK]

It often falls on my shoulders to blog about an alternative snack to crisps and nuts. Don't get me wrong, I love crisps but probably eat far too many packets for my own good. So every now and then I like to find a healthier option. One that doesn't effect my waist so much, especially if I'm sat infront of a film for a couple of hours and eat more than one packet with a high calorie larger than usual beer or two! These Walkers Sunbites Pitta Bakes Roasted Pepper and Chilli Flavour certainly seem to fit the bill. I love peppers and I also love chillis, so putting them in a packet with some healthy bread sounds like a good idea to me. It almost feels like not needing to go to the gym!

On opening the packet I could see what Walkers meant when they said that these multigrain Sunbites Crispy Crackers were baked until golden to give them that extra crunch. I was a bit taken aback though as these multigrain Pitta Chips didn't strike me with a peppery or chilli smell. In fact there wasn't much of a whiff coming from the inside of the packet. On first taste of a reddish slim squarish cracker and I realised all the flavour had been packed into each one rather than letting some ooze out in an odour. There was an initial delightful red pepper and tomato flavour for starters mixed with paprika and then a chilli burn to finish the taste. Packed full of flavour, super crunchy, medium hot and very healthy. What more could you want from an alternative snack? Oh yes, another packet...

I had a packet of the cheese ones today and they were bloody lovely! It's not often you get a healthier product that's actually just as nice as a full fat product. I would happily munch these all day long.
