Review of Tesco’s Snackers

I am always on the lookout for new dairy free savoury treats to try. One thing that I have always fancied is a Ritz style cracker. So when I found out on Twitter that Tesco’s did their own branded version described as lightly salted savoury snacks that were dairy free I just had to give them a try. I popped along to my local Tesco’s to hunt for some packets. I found them difficult to find as I am not used to shopping for this type of item. Finally I found the last two packets. I popped them into my basket and couldn’t wait to get home and try them.

I liked the packaging well I was attracted to the bright orange packaging with mini stacks of the biscuits, very inviting. I just wanted to dive in and give them a try. Onto the ingredients list, wheat and barley are highlighted as allergens. There is no may contain warning and the labelled as being suitable for a vegetarian diet.

On opening the box a faint cheese style aroma was present. I did my usual close up sniff test and this did not change. I wasn’t expecting this aroma so got my other half to check and he agreed. Onto the snacks themselves. They are round in shape with a slightly bumpy edge, with several small holes integrated into each biscuit. On biting into them I initially got an initial crunch followed by a light airy texture from inside the snacks. Onto the flavour this seemed to be slightly cheese like. They reminded me of a weaker less intense flavour that you get from Tesco’s free from cheese flavoured nachos. In fact I preferred these to their nachos and I really like these. I found it hard to only have a few as they are very moorish.

So would I recommend these Snackers? I liked everything about these savoury treats from their combination of textures through to their flavour. I found them to be very addictive I enjoyed most of mine plain. However they worked well with either a piece of ham or pate on top. So if you follow a dairy free or vegetarian diet why not give these Snackers a try. So thank you Tesco’s for producing a savoury treat that I can enjoy.
