Every now and again I fancy something different as a savoury treat. This time it was vegetable crisps, which I personally have on an adhoc basis. As I was in Lidl I thought I should try their own branded version of these. I checked the ingredients list for allergens and none were highlighted. They were labelled as being suitable for both vegetatarians and vegans. So as they were milk free they were suitable for me, happy days. The packaging is green in colour with a picture of the vegetables that have been made into crisps in a bowl. A 100g serving contains 520 calories, 35g of fat, 21g of sugar and 1.28g of salt.
On opening the packet I could see the different colour vegetable crisps inside. No aroma was noted at this point. I initially choose one of each vegetable chip, this being parsnip, sweet potato, beetroot and carrot. They all looked a little greasy with the parsnip and sweet Potatoe chips being the worse. I definitely got a residual on picking up the crisps on my fingers. On tasting the different vegetables, I could just distinguish the different types of vegetables by colour and taste. Although after having a few the flavours all seemed to merge into one if I am honest. I was then left with a bit of a great residual in my mouth. As mentioned at the start of this post I infrequently eat vegetable crisps, but these were not the best ones that I have tried. I found the flavour to be lacking and personally too greasy. Sadly, I won’t be buying these again sorry Lidl. On a positive note there are vegetable crisps that individuals who follow a dairy free diet can try.
