I’ve tasted Veronica’s Baked Organic Veggie Crisps Roast Garlic & Mixed Herb… should you put a pack in the trolley or leave them on the shelf?
Veronica’s Baked Organic Veggie Crisps Roast Garlic & Mixed Herb blurb reads: At Veronica’s Snacks we want everyone to enjoy snack time without worrying about what’s inside the bag! And so, when we created our range of Baked Organic Crisps, we made sure to make ‘em full of flavour, but kept them gluten free, with less fat, less salt, and less of the other not-so-good stuff.
OK: Veronica’s Snacks is a new Cork-based company which has produced four flavours of gluten-free crisps: two potato-based flavours and two veggie crisp flavours. Each flavour comes in a small snack size 23g bag and a larger 85g sharing bag. They contain 60% less fat than regular fried potato crisps.
The tasting note: Made with potato starch and potato flakes and formed into round, crinkle-cut crisps, these are lighter and much less greasy than many crisps due to being baked, rather than fried. The garlic flavour is pleasantly different from normal crisp flavours, but mild enough not to put people off with garlic breath! (So I’m reliably informed by my breath-testing panel)
The full ingredient list: [*Organic Ingredient] Potato Starch*, Potato Flakes*, Corn Flour*, Sunflower Oil*, Dehydrated Vegetables* (Carrot, Beetroot, Broccoli, Spinach, Garlic), Salt, Seasoning 4% – (Potato Starch*, Sea Salt, Sugar*, Yeast Extract)
Can you eat it? Gluten-free. Suitable for vegetarians. Contains milk.
Should you put it in the trolley? Flavoursome and light, without being greasy, the garlic is strong enough for a good taste, but mild enough not to leave everyone running away.
