Wholesums Fresh Veg Popped Crisps

I'm always on the lookout for alternative snacks to crisps. Okay, so these Wholesums Salt of the Earth do seem to be crisps. However, these "fresh veg popped" crisps look particularly healthy. They are made from carrots, peas and potatoes. They are low in fat at 1.2g per 22g bag, because they are popped crisps and not fried. They are gluten free, are a good source of fibre, and have 86 calories in the packet. They are also Vegan friendly. Not that I'm a Vegan, but that's what it says on the bag.

On opening the packet the small oval crisps inside looked a little like crushed coins from one of those press-machines at a fairground. There were slightly beige ones that were obviously potato crisps, which ironically tasted like very lightly salted popped potato crisps. The carrot ones were a slightly orange colour, had more of a crunch than the potato crisps, and still tasted like very lightly salted popped potato crisps. The greenish pee crushed flat popped crisps tasted a lot different to the other two flavours. They had yet more of a crunch to them and tasted a bit more like a green vegetable popped crisp. These pee crisps were not unpleasant in flavour and still tasted very lightly salted like the popped carrot and also popped potato crisps. Unfortunately I found that these popped vegetable crisps weren't very tasty though. When the packet stated "Salt of the Earth", I just expected a little more salt than I received. I do like Ready Salted crisps, but I'm afraid not this lightly salted.

Information on the packet;
At 22g the bag has 86 calories, with 1.2g of fat, 0.5g of sugar, and 0.3g of sugar. Please see photograph for the ingredients.
