I've been hearing a lot of good things about Aldi and their great value prices. I tried some of their Jaffa cake biscuits at a friends house and was won over by their great taste. I took a trip to Aldi and came home laden with fresh fruit, vegetables, ham, chorizo, American marshmallows, frozen goods and much more for the bargain price of under £20. One of the snacks I picked up was this 18 pack of Snackrite crisps in kid friendly varieties of Cheese Grids, Bacon Rashers and Monster Claws for only £1.49. These are half the price of the branded or other supermarket varieties seeing as a 6 pack of crisps usually costs about £1. Now we all know which crisps these are 'copying' but how do they compare in taste?
The only negative point is that there were not many 'claws' in a pack, although each claw is quite big in size. Again they are only 87 calories per bag and the ingredients are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
I am usually a bit reluctant to buy such large multipacks of crisps as that can mean some packs go to waste (we don't eat crisps every day and the kids get bored if they have the same flavour too often), but that certainly wouldn't happen with this pack. In fact they seem to be disappearing at an alarmingly fast rate!
Note: I updated the first photo of this review to reflect the latest version of this crisps which contain Cheese Puffs rather than Cheese Grids.
