Snack Review: Marks & Spencer Tomato Salsa Flavoured Tortilla Chips

Updated on August 4, 2012

Are you feeling snacky? When you’re not truly hungry – not three course meal hungry, or even burger and chips hungry – you can still be snacky hungry, you know! (What am I talking about, of course you know! Don’t we all?)

When that urge to snack strikes, what do you reach for? I think for half the population, the answer has to be, ‘a packet of crisps’. (Or, for our cousins overseas, chips. Which are not the chips you have with burgers. Those are fries, right? I’m giving myself a headache…)

Crisps and all their variants, delicious, naughty, fatty, savoury snacks! (When it’s not chocolate, of course). One of my current favourites are Marks & Spencer Tomato Salsa Flavoured Tortilla Chips. How do tortilla chips – or these tortilla chips, at least – measure up when judged against the regular old potato chip as a snack?

Marks & Spencer Tomato Salsa Flavoured Tortilla Chips, taking a look at the ingredients label, proudly boast 470 calories per 100 grams, 25 grams of fat, 1.4 grams of salt and 8 grams of fiber. Compare this against the statistics for a popular brand of ready salted crisp, say Walker’s Ready Salted: 532 calories per 100 grams, 34 grams of fat, 1.6 grams of salt and 4 grams of fiber. Pretty telling information, once you come to take a look at it! Still, no-one in their right mind would ever claim that corn chips qualify as a health food. Still, it’s nice to know the subtle but crucial differences between the snacking alternatives available to you.

How about price range? Are Marks & Spencer Tomato Salsa Flavoured Tortilla Chips a bargain buy? They retail for around £1.39 a 175 gram packet: but for quite some time now they’ve had a two for the price of one, or BOGOF, offer going. Which makes them even more of a must-have!

But are they delicious?  Of course they are, the whole range: and the tomato salsa variety are probably my favourite, tangy and yummy.  Try some today, why not?
