Tasted: Marks & Spencer Beetroot Crisps

By Vegan Caroline
An interesting healthier version of the crisp with sweet, tangy, earthy flavours.

The Product:
These beetroot crisps are part of a new range of snacks from M & S that are dried rather than fried. Essentially they are discs of beetroot coated in a vinaigrette dressing that are then dehydrated. The beetroot crisps come in at a lower price point than the kale crisps and are closer to a bag of potato crisps in price. They score well against standard crisps from a health point of view with only 92 calories a bag, no added salt and are low in fat and saturated fat.

The Verdict:
I was a bit surprised by the texture at first as they’re not at all like crisps. Indeed when you shake the bag it sounds like it’s full of metal discs! Although extremely crunchy they did grow on me though. I really love crisps but try not to eat them too often and it was great that these felt like a guilt free option. There’s a nice balance of flavours with a sweet earthiness from the beetroot mixed with the tanginess from the lemon and vinegar. Worth a try if you’re looking for something different snackwise or trying to wean yourself off crisps!
