Popchips: A review

Do I admit that I like going shopping on an empty stomach? It's so much better than going shopping on a full stomach and getting home with zero meals to eat for a week.

What helps when filling my shopping trolley is buying things that taste good but you don't have to feel guilty about.

When this package arrived on our doorstep everyone got excited.


With a good variety of flavours to ensure everyone is happy.


And what of 'Popchips'. How wrong is it for them to be in your shopping trolley? Or even worse, in the snack cupboard?!

Popchips have come from the USA with the slogan "think popped! Never fried, never baked."
Popping is the method of choice, to create an all-natural 'chip', with natural seasoning in a variety of flavours.
The snacks come with the promise of 'all-natural'... and the promise which rang most true was that of "no wiping your greasy chip hand on your jeans".

As a parent who has tried to encourage her little people to try rice cakes, Popchips are a great alternative. They are, of course, very difficult to describe, there are so many types of 'crisps' out there- from your brands like Walkers, to Skips, Quavers, Wotsits.... providing different textures.

The great thing about Popchips are they are just a different texture, but a good different. They are full of flavour. And with the promises of "less than half the fat of fried crisps, fewer calories and none of the fake colours or flavours" and "less than 100 calories for more than 17 crisps in each single-serve bag" you feel like you can't go wrong.
I have to admit, as I frequently 'support' the little people in eating their snacks I was so happy with these.
They do taste good, their texture is 'solid' and the little people have done really well with experimenting with them- and we've done even better!

I really was impressed with them. It took the OH a while to get used to them... they are not crisps.... but having been eating such random foods with the little people these are a welcome addition to the snack cupboard.... although maybe more for the 'grown-ups' than the little people.

You can buy Popchips from Waitrose and other online stores.

Disclosure: We were sent a box of Popchips for the purposes of this review. The opinions and views presented are entirely my own.
