Kallø Sundried Tomato & Herbs Corn & Rice Snacks

Well, this little packet of gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, coeliac friendly and certified carbon neutral crispy snacks was a present from the Family Vegetarian. Which was a very kind thought.

But how could she know how difficult it was for me to find the  ø symbol on my computer. For some reason it doesn't appear along with the  ö, the ȏ, the ố, the ȭ, the ỡ, the ợ or even the ǿ. No, it has to be searched for specially.

Well, anyway, this crispy snack made by Wessanen UK (based in Surrey) obviously has the best of intentions. Why not whip me out for some delightful al desko elevenses? suggests the packet. Kick out the crisps! Mmn... I don't think so.

This is another of those crispy snacks that look like a bunch of rice crispys kind of gummed together into circular cakey thing. The packet tell me this is all about living life in a positively fabulous fashion. Sounds great.... but.

The reluctant taste testers and I tried hard to like this sensible sounding snack with only 91 calories per bag, less than 3% fat, and no artificial colours or preservatives. Sounds good doesn't it? Yes, it really does. Unfortunately the taste is not so tasty. We thought mass-produced pizza or perhaps spaghetti bolognaise (but not in a good way).

And so, although it looks good, we cannot really say that (in our opinion) we recommend this snack.
