Review of Salt Pom-Bear Salt & Vinegar Crisps

Anyone who follows me on Twitter knows that I love my Pom Bears, in fact I have them most days with my packed lunch at work. Until recently the plain variety were the only flavour of Pom Bears suitable for my dairy free diet. That was until the salt and vinegar flavour was introduced, so of course I just had to give them a try. It took me a little while to get some as they were always out of stock, a promising sign I thought, but what did I think? How did they compare to me old faithful plain Pom Bears? Please read on to find out.

Onto the packaging well I well I just love this, with what I describe as the king bear introducing you to the rest of the Pom Bears who are politely waving back at you. The crisps are clearly labelled and marketed as being gluten free. They are also suitable for a vegetarian diet. Onto the ingredients list barley and soya are highlighted in the ingredients list as allergens and there is no my contain warning. This therefore makes them suitable for my dairy free diet.

On opening the crisps I noted the salt and vinegar aroma which wasn’t to strong or overpowering. This didn’t change on my close up sniff test. The crisps had an even distribution of flavouring noted on them. On biting into the crisps there was a nice crunch noted followed by a slight airy texture. Onto the flavour it was definitely salt and vinegar. It was pleasant but just not as strong as I had hoped. Perhaps I am being a tad unfair as the crisps are clearly aimed at the children’s market. If I am honest I prefer the plain Pom Bear flavour. These remain a staple in my packed lunch most days. Onto a positive note the crisps have a nice texture and didn’t leave any greasy or powdery residual from the flavouring on my fingers. This is personally a big bonus for me.

So would I recommend these crisps? Yes I would. The flavour wasn’t as strong as I had hoped but it was pleasant. They were not greasy, had a good crunch and didn’t leave a powdery residual on my fingers. Most of all it was great to have a flavoured packet of Pom Bears that I can enjoy. So if you follow a dairy free, gluten free or a vegetarian diet why not give these crisps a try. So thank you Pom Bear for producing another flavoured packet of crisps that I can have.

  1. That’s good that you can eat them! I didn’t know that other flavours weren’t suitable for those with allergies to dairy. I haven’t seen salt and vinegar flavour before…is it new?

  2. We all love Pom Bears in this house! We always go for the plain old ready salted flavour, and I could literally demolish a whole pack of 6 🙂 Thanks for joining in with #FreeFromFridays.

  3. I LOVE Pom Bears! Although ready salted will always be my favourite flavour, such a shame the cheese and onion ones aren’t 😦

  4. I love Pom Bears – in fact possibly more than my kids do if that’s possible. I haven’t tried the salt and vinegar variety but they sound like a winning formula to me! I like my crisps to not be too strong and I’m sure the kids will love them! Thanks for sharing with #DreamTeam x
