Mystery Crisps (DegustaboxUK) By @SpectreUK

I'm not sure I should blog about these mystery crisps. They have no information on the packet asides the ingredients, so I can't give you a name or manufacturer or anything really. Therefore I apologise if this blog is a little short.

There's been no pressure on us to write about them either, just curiosity is slowly itching away at me. Like a Pandora's Box. I'm just staring at the packet and wondering. The ingredients don't even look that interesting. They sound pretty healthy, but no chilli heat or even pepper. Just corn, lentils, beans and peas. My curiosity may have got the better of me here, as I really don't like snacks that don't taste of anything. It's supposed to be tasty at least… that's why it's a snack!

I can see through the packet and these tortilla shaped crisps look a little sat on and crushed… On opening the packet the rather strong smell of corn oil hit my nostrils, there was a little pea and bean in the aroma also, but mostly oil. They aren't crunchy at all. Perhaps a little rubbery in texture. They taste mainly of corn with a heavy hint of oil… I have to admit that I ate one crisp and then threw the bag away. I'm not wasting (or waisting) the calories. Whoever made them and whatever they are supposed to be, these mystery crisps need a serious rethink!

Information on the packet;
Per 100g there are 424 calories, with 11.8g of fat, 0.4g of sugar, and 1g of salt. Ingredients include; corn, red lentils, green peas, yellow peas, black beans, corn oil, and salt.
