Review: New Walkers Hoops and Crosses

posted in: Food & Drink, Review | 0

Everyone loves to play. Adults included. Whether it’s having a go on the swings at the park (please tell me you like the swings!), enjoying a bit of Scrabble or Pictionary in the evening, or tap tap tapping away at The Simpsons Tapped Out on your iPad, playing is a fantastic way to relax, to have fun. If you don’t then frankly there is something wrong with you!

Walkers have brought out a new crisp to encourage us to play… with our food! Hoops and Crosses are a crunchy source of wholegrain and fibre in the shape of Xs and Os. They sent me a bag, lunch box and a whole load of stuff to encourage me to play… fantastic! LincsGeek has said I definitely need to use the red lunch box for work, I think I might need to print out a picture of a suitable retro image to put on the front – what do you think to He-Man?

Of course the game is called Noughts and Crosses (there was a proper version in the pack too). I wonder why they changed that to “Hoops” and Crosses?

Anyway, to the crisps. I really like them! Of the three flavours – roast beef, salt and vinegar, prawn cocktail – my favourite was roast beef. They reminded me a bit of Monster Munch, but LincsGeek didn’t agree with that, he said they are less crunchy than those (and there’s no pickled onion flavour!). They are easy to eat, not too noisy, and very tasty. And with 85 calories per pack they aren’t too bad for including my bright red lunch box either.

So whether you agree with playing with your food or not, give these a try and I bet you won’t be able to resist a quick game, even if it’s only with yourself!

Disclaimer: I was sent some Hoops and Crosses by Walkers so I could try them and write about them here. I have not been told what to say and have been no less honest as a result of receiving the product for free.
