Walkers New Mighty Lights

We have been asked to taste and review NEW Walkers Mighty Lights crisps, and were excited to test them out! But first a little crisp fun.

How are Mighty Lights different from standard potato crisps?

As you can see from our experiment

With 30% less fat than standard crisps, Mighty Lights are perfect for kids’ lunchboxes. They are tasty, ridged crisps that come in three flavours – roast chicken, cheese and onion and lightly salted. All the flavours are suitable for vegetarians, and are available in shops nationwide. They’re made from real potatoes with no artificial colours of preservatives  and they’re a source of fibre.

We are all big crisp fans in the Soup Dragon house, so were very excited when the crisp box arrived. As you can see from the video Walkers Mighty Lights are strong on flavour, but light on fat! Walkers Mighty Lights come in three flavours Cheese & Onion, Ready Salted and Roast Chicken. Our packs were multi packs and just like regular Walkers crisps these are packed in multi packs of six. I was especially pleased to see that Roast Chicken flavour was one of the varieties as this is my personal favourite. So often the flavours of new crisps are just the usual favourites so this makes a nice change.

So for lunch we had wraps and crisps, the boy chose Roast Chicken I tried Ready Salted and that left Daddy M with Cheese & Onion. We were all very impressed with the flavour of the crisps as we couldn’t tell that there was any difference in the flavour from a regular packet of walkers. The crisps have a ridged look and feel, and are noticeably less greasy than regular crisps. I was surprised how much the whole family enjoyed them, and I don’t think the boy could tell the difference from normal standard crisps. You don’t seem to get very many in a packet, but this works well for us as a family as I would usually split the packet between two of us.

Walkers Mighty Lights also have no artificial colours and preservatives, no MSG’s and are made from real potatoes so this makes me happy. As a parent I often find it difficult to find healthy food to pack in the boys lunch box. I know that crisps are not the most healthy option. Knowing that Walkers Might Lights have no added nastys are a good point for me as a parent. The boy loves crisps and I try to restrict them to just a few packets a week. Walkers Mighty Lights, will be a great way for me to let the boy have crisps in his lunch without me feeling quite so guilty.

With the kids just about to go back to school, have a look out in the shops for new Walkers Might Lights as they should be on supermarket shelves very soon.

We were sent 3 multi packs of Walkers Mighty Lights to try and have been compensated for this post. The opinions however remain our own. No crisps were wasted in the making of our video and have all now been eaten!

we had so much fun making this short fil, that the boy wanted to make another so have a look at Walkers Mighty Lights part 2

    1. Do you know the video only took 20 minutes to film as me and the boy had a story board and props ready. Took longer to find the music!
