The cheeky monkey, Walkers Hoops and Crosses snack review

Last week this cheeky little chap turned up with the postman. It’s always nice to get something unexpected in the post so I let the boy open this one.

Inside our shoebox was a cheeky monkey and a packet of the new Walkers Hoops and Crosses snack. We were sent a packet of the roast beef flavour to try.
My son loves crisps in his lunch so I was keen to find out what he thought of these.

The boy says

They are nice and crispy, and a cool shape. I like them but they could be a bit more beefy. They leave bits on your fingers, but its ok because you can lick it off.

I am always conscious that crisps are probably the worst part of my sons packed lunch, and do find it difficult to find healthy alternatives. Luckily these snacks are only 85 calories, and are made from whole grains with no artificial colours or preservatives. They also come in three flavours which state they are suitable for vegetarian’s.

I think I will be buying Walkers Hoops and Crosses for the boy as he seemed to really enjoy them, and if they are lower in fat and higher in wholegrain then they have to be a better alternative to crisps.

This is a sponsored post as I was sent a packet of Walkers Hoops and Crosses to review, but the opinion’s are all my own.

  1. They sound yummy – don’t know how I missed out on this it seems everyone has had them 😉 x

    1. I think it could be, but he was in the car and I told him not to wipe it down his trousers!! (Boys!)

  2. My children loved this but I wasn’t so keen on the strong flavour – I have bought them some now though so Miss M was pleased!
