Back in the mid-nineties there was one crisp which ruled over the rest, Skips, and while they might not be in the same league as Walker’s Sensations they definitely give you a good small snack, not too packed on calories and very tasty!
~What does it look like?~
The outer packaging is a very bright yellow and red so you could say it is quite eye-catching! On the front of the packet it has a blue label informing the consumer that it had the following:
1. 50% less saturated fat 2. Less than 100 calories per pack 3. No artificial colours or flavours 4. No MSG 5. Is made with a blend of sunflower oil
As well as this, you are informed what flavour it is (Prawn Cocktail of course!) and what it is called in very funky red font with an arty photo of the actual Skip crisp!
~What does it taste like?~
Skips have a very particular taste and seeing as they only come in the prawn cocktail flavour, the taste is nice and has the taste of prawns, a little tangy but not overpowering. The crisps themselves look like an opened umbrella if you were viewing it from the top, and the size (about the size of a 10 pence piece) is just enough for you to be able to grab more than a few to chuck into your mouth!
As soon as you put a few into your mouth, providing they are on the tongue you will feel them slightly sizzle and melt ever so softly. Coming to the end of the packet you will want to tilt it over to empty the last crumbs and pieces of the Skips and this you will not be able to resist as they simply ARE finger-licking’ good!
~Where can I buy them and how much will they cost?~
I bought a multi-pack from Iceland today, so for a 12 pack I only ended up paying a measly £1! That’s around 8 pence a pack, now I am sure that this was a promotional offer and won’t last long, however Skips is not as dearly priced as its competitors anyway. You can buy them in off-licenses, corner-shops and obviously the massive supermarkets. A pack in a corner shop usually costs around 25-30 pence so if you are a massive fan, you would be better off getting a big saving by looking out for multi-packs!
Overall: These crisps are great for the kids as well as adults, and can be easily added to any packed lunch as they are healthily balanced and only contain 89 calories per pack! They are very tasty and if you are planning on buying a multi-pack, then make sure you stash some away for yourself, because if the rest of the family see them lying around…your tongue won’t get a look in!
