One day arrived a mighty box,
(sadly there was not a fox)
The box contained some Mighty Lights
Which did cause us some great delight.
(Mighty Lights are crisps you see
my children saw them with great glee,
They have 30 percent less fat
Can you believe they’ve managed that?)
The younger children liked them plain
(no artificial things again)
They travelled with us in a car
we ate them near, we ate them far.
My favourites are the ones with cheese
(Onion never makes me wheeze)
crinkles are fun, with fibre too
while not *precisely* good for you
at least they’re 30% less bad
which makes them not a passing fad
My brain is straining,
I think it’s time
To finish this post
but not in rhyme…
OK. I’ll give you a moment to pull yourself together before we continue.
We were very happy to be sent three six packs of Mighty Lights for review. (There was a slight disappointment that there wasn’t a monkey this time. The last walkers delivery had a monkey, who now occupies the position of favourite toy that isn’t a tiger of the one year old.) It has to be said that we don’t eat a lot of crisps here – partly because the older children never actually liked them much, but over the years they’ve got the hang of it, and these hit the spot nicely for those of us who have got the crisp habit. They came with us across the country as part of our packed lunch when we visited Harry Potter, and even time travelled to Kentwell Hall where they provided excellent snackage in between meals. (No, not while we were tudor togged, surprisingly enough, but they did work extremely well for distracting small children from imminent starvation while Big and I were disassembling a tent.)
By perusing my inspired efforts above, you hopefully have got the gist that there are no artificial colours or preservatives, there is 30% less fat than other crisps, and there’s a higher amount of fibre too. This is all good. They come in lightly salted, cheese and onion and roast chicken (Personally I’d have rather had prawn cocktail, which never, to the best of my knowledge tastes anything like prawn cocktail, or possibly worcester sauce (why doesn’t anyone do Henderson’s relish flavour crisps? They’d be fantastic)) and all flavours found at least one fan in the family. The crinkles are well, crinkly, and there’s less of that greasy feel you get with traditional crisps, which is presumably a Good Thing, and I can actually see that I might get around to buying these and stashing them for those occasional snacky needs, such as packed lunches for trips out and so on.
All in all, a success.
(Free crisps. It would be hard for them not to be a success But these were more successful than I was anticipating.)
Disclosure: Yes, I’m sorry internet, this was yet another sponsored review. But I did try ever so hard to make it a little bit different…forgive me?
