Review of Snacktastic Ready Salted Potato Hoops from Lidl

I recently had a quick visit to Lidl on my travels. As it was a quick stop I didn’t have time to explore the aisles to find some new savoury treats to enjoy. I found myself in the crisp section. Now, I have tried a couple of their crisps and have been suitably impressed. I found their own version of ready salted hula hoops. Now, most brands of this style of crisp are not suitable for my dairy and lactose free diet. I checked the list of ingredients for allergens, None were listed and they were suitable for vegans. This meant that they were both milk and gluten free, so I could also share them with my mum. The packaging is similar to that of hula hoops red with a picture of the hooped crisps on the front. A 25g packet contains 119 calories, 4.5g of fat, 0.5g of sugar and 0.50g of salt.

On opening the packet of crisps I could see mainly formed hoop style crisps, with no obvious greasiness noted inside the packet. On picking up the crisp it was left no greasiness on my fingers, or any excess salt. On biting into the hoop crisps a nice crunch was noted. The crisps themselves were pretty neutral in taste, but we’re not bland. I personally have had nicer crisps from Lidl, but these although were a little bland in flavouring they made a nice change to my lunch pack up. I even got to put some of the hoops on my fingers. So thank you to Lidl for producing a hula hoop style crisp that is suitable for a dairy, lactose and gluten free. Would I recommend you buy these, yes although I have had nicer crisps from Lidl they are cheap and alternative style of crisp to fill up your lunchbox.
