Addison and my eyes did light up when we opened this box, she is so my daughter and loves her “crispies”.
We of course wasted no time in getting them out and having a taste – for review purposes of course 😉
We kindly received 3, 6 packs of Walkers Mighty Lights, in Roast Chicken, Lightly Salted and Cheese & Onion, I was a little disappointed there were no traditional Salt & Vinegar but I am sure they will follow.
Now for the serious stuff…
- 30% Less Fat than Standard Crisps – WIN!#
- Suitable For Veggies – Well Done Walkers!!
- Made from Real Potatoes – Good Job!
- No artificial Colours or Flavours – Good, keep those manic kids away.
- Good source of fibre – always good in my house (poor pooping babies)
I am one of those naughty parents who sneaks way too many goodies when the kids aren’t looking, but make them only have fruit (hope Addy doesn’t read this when she is older) but I usually let her have some “crispies” after dinner if she has eaten all her veg. In the future I will certainly choose Mighty Lights, fat is really important to me being a lady with a weight problem, I do not want my kids to be the same and at 30% less fat at least I know I am helping that out.
The Mighty Lights are a ridged thick crisp and I must say not only did I but also Addison too seemed fuller for this reason, she would only ever eat half a packet at a time, which pleased me even more. She loves the Roast Chicken, going “Nummy in my Tummy” which for those who don’t talk ‘Addy’ is good.
They were just too yummy to discuss Mummy
I also brought a few packs to our charity funday for all to try as I must say I was pleased with the texture and flavour and wondered what people would think.
Out of 23 people who tried them, 18 thought they were more flavoured than normal crisps, 5 thought they were flavoured the same and only 2 thought they were less flavoured, everybody thought the texture was nicer than a standard crisp and agreed they did seem to make you feel more full than a standard packet of crisps.
When I reveled they were less fat nearly all said they would buy them over standard crisps, my sister a Primary Teacher said these would be good for school lunches but she would like the bags to be a smaller quantity, which I would have to agree with, if Addison was taking them to preschool it would be just too big of a treat, maybe some kids sized bags would be fab Walkers?
Everyone liked the packaging too, saying they didn’t look too adult or too childlike and in no way did they look like a boring pack of “diet crisps”.
All in all I think these Mighty Lights will be a winner for Walkers, I shall be stocking up as I start Weight Watchers again this week and they will be a great snack to treat myself too.
Disclosure – We received these crisps and compensation for purpose of review but all opinions are our own.
