Well & Truly Healthier Corn Snacks : Review

GIFTED

About Well & Truly

BAKED CORN SNACKS THAT ACTUALLY TASTE GOOOOOOOD.

Naughty flavour. Nice ingredients. No bland-tasting nonsense. Here’s to unjunked snacks that still make you feel a bit bad. Because being good all the time gets pretty boring. 

All our snacks have 40% less fat (than your regular naughty crisps), are all gluten free and are made up of totally natural ingredients.

The Delivery

Wow this bag was packed full…time to unpack and see what they sent me 🙂

The Goodies

All the flavours sounded good, so I just randomly grabbed and bag and dug right in.

Smokey Paprika Crunchies

About : Shockingly Smokey, tucking into these naturally paprika-flavoured corn crisps is like committing a little legal arson on your tastebuds. They’re crunchy as hell and devilishly tasty — and totally guilt-free. No need to confess any snack sins here. Vegan friendly. 

I decided to start with these, as I wanted to test how good the flavour is.

So they say they are 40% less fat, but that’s 40% less compared to other brands.

Normally what this means is less flavour, well that’s what I have found in the past…would that be the case today? lets pop open a bag and taste them.

Oh…these were packed with flavour!!!

I was very surprised, and they also had a nice crisp texture to them….mega surprised!

These didn’t last long as I really loved the flavour and due to the lower fat I didn’t feel too guilty.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Sour Cream & Onion Crunchies

About : We’ve seriously cranked up the tang factor on these crisps to stupidly sour cream & onion-y. Sure, there’s a 100% chance you’ll get zingy onion breath (worth it) … but hey, at least they’re 40% less fat? 

Normally for me sour cream and onion doesn’t agree with me, as I can still taste them hours after I have ate the crisps….so lets see how these are.

I really liked these, the flavour was nice and not overpowering.

These seemed to agree with me, and the guys sent me lots of these so I have been enjoying a packet at night with a movie.

I highly recommend these.

Banging BBQ Crunchies

About : We’ve given our crisps a proper sweet and savoury rubdown and nearly thrown them on the grill to get the most BANG in each bite. If you’ve always wondered how to replicate the smokiness of a BBQ in your mouth, these are how. Oh, and the succulent meaty flavour? All vegan. Pinky swear.

Still being very impressed with the flavours these pack, I wanted to see if that was the cause with BBQ.

Opening the packet the smell was very good, and I hoped that having a good strong smell the flavour would also be there.

Yes it was! these were mega tasty and my favourite so far.

Very impressed with these crisps! and looking forward to tasting the rest.

Really Cheesy Crunchies

About : Is there such thing as too much cheese? (obviously not) If you’ve always wanted to snack on a whole block of cheddar but felt weird about it, this is the socially acceptable and crunchier way to do just that. And they’re 40% less fat. Criminally cheesy. 

I love a good cheesy crisp, so this sounded perfect for me…yes its a big bag and meant for sharing but since I am single and nobody was near me…it was all for me.

Opening the packet I was hit with a nice cheesy smell, and since it was a big bag I couldn’t wait to dig in and keep digging in.

Another win! again just like the others nice texture and packed with flavour and due to the less fat you don’t need to feel as guilty when eating these.

Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar Crunchies

About : Our take on the British classic Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar flavoured corn snacks. Crammed full of flavour, crunch and lower in fat, this snack is a satisfying winner. Vegan friendly. 

I am not a big salt and vinegar fan, but I thought lets try these and see how they compare to other ones I have tried.

For me these were nice and had a good salt and vinegar flavour, but its not one I am a fan of to start with.

If you like this flavour do check these out as am sure you will love them.

Punchy Pickles Crunchies

About : Brace your tastebuds for a one-two-however-many-you-eat-in-a-sitting PUNCH of lip-smacking tanginess. Finally, you don’t have to be caught with your fist in the jar to get that salty sour taste.

A flavour of crisps I never buy are pickles so I decided to leave these to last to try.

These for me and my personal taste were just ok, not as bad as I thought they would be but still not my favourite out of all the flavours Well and Truly do.

If you like pickles as a crisp flavour I am sure you would love these.

My Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Overall :

Firstly a big thanks to Well & Truly for the crisps and introducing me to their brand.

I have no issues recommending these, as with the reduced fat content the flavour was still amazing! which is what lacks with other reduced fat crisps.

Check them out and let me know what you think.

Chikas⁣ Salt & Vinegar Wholegrain Rice Crisps

When it comes to salt and vinegar, I find it either too strong a flavour or just more salty than anything….but thats my taste palate but I was interested how to these were.

I opened the packet and instantly noticed how thin they were, so I thought “probably not much flavour”…..I couldn’t have been more wrong. For a thin crisp these packed a punch of flavour, and it was a perfect balance of flavour and a nice texture.

CHIKAS⁣ Smoky Barbecue Wholegrain Rice Crisps

I love a good barbecue flavour for sauce or crisps, so I was looking forward to popping these open.

mmmm these were probably my favourite from all the crisp range I tried, they were thin, light and had a really nice barbecue flavour that wasnt strong but wasnt hiding in the background.

I could have easily had another one.
