NU ME Carrot Crisps (Morrisons) By @SpectreUK

I’m always on the lookout for healthy alternative snacks to crisps and nuts. These Carrot Crisps are from the Morrison’s NU ME range. At 65 calories a packet, they are definitely the healthiest crisps I’ve ever eaten. They are air-dried carrot crisps and the packet stated that they are “ridiculously moreish”, which I confess made me more than a little curious. I’m hoping that curiosity doesn’t kill the cat, so to speak. Whatever happens I should at least be able to see better in the dark!
On opening the packet there was a light lemon and strong carroty smell to the bright orange crisps inside. The crisps are thinly sliced carrots dried out after a liberal soaking from lemon juice. I could even see the inside of the carrot on each crisp. These crisps have a strong taste of carrots, which is unsurprising as they are dried carrots. Have no delusions though as they really do just state of carrot with a dash of lemon seasoning. If you don’t like carrots, don’t buy these crisps. Fortunately I like carrots, but my old greedy side would have preferred a bigger packet! So much for the NU ME…
Information on the packet;
20g bag contains 65 calories, 0.2g of fat, 9.4g of sugar and 1% of salt. Ingredients included; dried carrot, lemon juice from concentrate.


Something to look forward to said...

My colleague had these last week and I found Tesco do their own version which I now have every afternoon! Exactly the same (dried carrot and lemon juice) but come in a 30g bag at £1 each.
