Walkers New Hoops and Crosses

Recently Walkers asked us if we were interested in trying a brand new snack - Hoops and Crosses

 The parcel that arrived was beautifully thought out and presented.


And inside the box a lovely booklet explaining about Hoops and Crosses - They are different from previous snacks because they are made from wholegrains, which provide more fibre, protein and trace elements than refined grains. They also have no artificial colours or preservatives and are a baked snack, so they contain less saturated fat than fried snacks and crisps, and in fact each bag has only 85 calories. Inside, holding the bag of snacks, was a very welcome surprise - Monty the Monkey!


Hoops and crosses are available in three flavours – roast beef, salt and vinegar and prawn cocktail - all of which are vegetarian (something which is becoming increasingly rare in the snack world). We got to try my personal favourite - Roast Beef.

 

These are exactly the sort of snack that my family love, and are ideal for the children's lunches. I allow my lot 1 bag of snacks or crisps each day if they wish, and as they all take a packed lunch to school, that is when most are eaten. Hoops and Crosses reminded us of Monster Munch or Space Raiders, but have a more interesting and varied texture.



Everyone felt they were tasty, and were something they'd like to have in their lunchbox, even Daddy really likes them and he doesn't ever usually enjoy non-potato snacks!
