Kettle Foods was founded in 1978 in the USA and are now an international manufacturer of several savoury snack brands, n 2006 becoming the largest natural potato chip brand in the US. In this modern world of eating clean and healthy foods, Kettle Foods have brought themselves into the 21st century by producing lighter, healthier snack food options. Their latest development, Kettle Bites, are lentil and whole grain crisps and I was lucky enough to get to try them.
Sweet Chilli Lentil Curls
Kettle Bites only have 94 calories per pack meaning that if you're looking for a light, under 100 calorie snack, you need look no further. They also boast containing 50% less fat than standard ready salted crisps meaning they are a healthy snack which doesn't compromise on taste.
Being made from lentils, the shape and texture of these crisps are really quite unique. They are very light but the seasoning is plentiful meaning the taste is fantastic. The sweet chilli flavoured variation is delicious, and you can really taste the lime flavour shining through. The nutrition values are as follows:

Maple Barbecue Wholegrain Waves
The Maple Barbeque wholegrain waves stay true to their description in bringing together the sweet tang of maple syrup and the deep, rich flavour or tomato and paprika. As with the lentil curls, these are not like classic crisps and the wave shape holds the flavouring wonderfully and provides a fantastic crunch. The flavour is fairly moreish and they are absolutely delicious!
