April showers are hopefully over and May is upon us which can only mean several things: warm weather and picnics! Our kids are addicted to the outdoors and once the ground dries up I am really looking forward planning some more outdoor activities with friends.
When planning a picnic or any lunch, I always think of the perfect snack foods to bring along with us. I have always enjoyed the occasional potato chip at parties or picnics but I hardly purchased them in the store. My husband enjoys tortillas chips and pretzels so those have mainly been our go-to snacks.
I was recently introduced to Tyrrells chips which is a British company recently making its way to the US. They come in seven different and unique flavors that are all-natural and gluten-free. Here are the flavors they offer:
- Lightly Sea Salted
- Sea Salt and Cider Vinegar
- Mature Cheddar and Chives
- Sea Salt and Black Cracked Pepper
- Sweet Chili and Red Pepper
- Worcestershire and Sundried Tomato
- Beetroot, Parsnip and Carrots with a Pinch of Sea Salt
I immediately opened the Worcestershire and Sundried Tomato because it sounded amazing. One of the things I look for in the ingredient list is MSG. Chips can have the habit of being addictive but it is only because there is an additive that makes them so, not because they are delicious! MSG was NOT in these chips at all. I was so excited to really say that these chips are really all-natural!
These chips are all made in the UK at the Tyrrells Farm and are cooked in small batches so that they can come out perfectly crunchy and crispy.
These are the perfect chip, not too thin and not too thick, which made for the perfect chip. These bags of chips were really hard not to consume in a couple of days but we made it worth our time. My hubby made delicious sandwiches one evening and we decided to have the Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper chips and they were delicious.
While my hubby thought these were under-salted, I thought it allowed my palate to appreciate and savor the flavor of the potato chip. I really really liked them. Tyrrells also has delicious veggie chips too! The Beetroot, Parsnip and Carrots with a Pinch of Sea Salt were super delicious and even my older toddler enjoyed them and made for a healthy snack. I cannot wait to make these occasional chip permanent for our picnics, parties, and snacks.
