Review of Tesco Finest Sweet Chilli Crinkle Cut Crisps

I quickly popped into Tesco’s to grab a few essentials and somehow found myself drawn to their crisps aisle. A packet of Tesco’s finest sweet chilli crinkle cut crisps grabbed my attention. Most flavoured crisps are not an option when following a dairy free diet. I noticed that these were clearly labelled as being vegan so decided to give them a try.

I liked the simple black and pink background with a picture of the crisps above chilli and garlic to the centre. Onto the ingredients list they are clearly labelled as being suitable for a vegan diet. There are no allergens highlighted on the ingredients list and there is no may contain warning.

On opening the packet I was greeted by a fairly strong aroma of what I would describe as sweet chilli. This strengthened on my famous close up sniff test. The crisps were of a good size and had a good even scattering of flavouring and looked very inviting. On biting into the crisps a nice crisp crunch was noted. As for the flavour they tasted like delicious sweet chilli crisps that had a slightly crafty kick to them. Yes they tasted a little artificial in flavouring if I am honest but I really didn’t mind in this instance. They didn’t leave any greasy or powdery residual on my fingers. This is always a big positive for me. I personally dislike greasy crisps and find it a little annoying when half the flavouring from the crisp is left behind on my fingers.

So would I recommend these crisps? I Certainly would. I liked everything about these crisps from their inviting aroma though to their crunchy crisp texture and flavour. So thank you Tesco’s for producing a delicious packet of crisps that I can enjoy.

    I love Tesco’s finest crisps but am yet to try these ones. I tend to go for the cheesy flavours. I don’t really like anything too hot, but these sound just on the borderline 😊

    Thanks for sharing with #MMBC x

    Our 11 month old has been dairy free for a few months so I’m learning what we can and can’t feed him – it’s been an eye-opener! I don’t think he’ll be a fan of sweet chilli 🙂 but you’ve got a new follower! #triumphanttales

      March 14, 2018 / 8:32 pm

      Hi, yes sweet chilli may be taking it a little too far. There are some fab bloggers who children are dairy free out there if you want these I can pass on the info. Most are on Twitter. Thanks for the follow 😊.

  22. March 16, 2018 / 10:43 am

    One of the girls at work brought these in a while back and they’re so tasty!!!!

    I’m not a big fan of sweet chilli crisps, but admittedly these do look and sound fab. Tesco’s do a brilliant range of crisps – perfect of a movie night in I’d say. I’ll share your review with Mr Button, who loves every flavour of crisp going. Thanks for much for joining us for the #DreamTeam xx
