Food find: English foods are hit and miss

I saw these things at Fry's, which is a supermarket around here that is related to Kroger. These were a quarter a piece, so I got one of each variety. These Snapz are made in the United Kingdom out of apples and beets. There is no sugar or additives. The flavors were beets, apple, apple cinnamon and strawberry apple.

The beets were just horrible. They tasted like dirt. The apple ones had a great crunch, but they were sliced so thick that they tasted fibrous. The strawberry apple were just too sweet. There was no sugar added, but it was still sickly sweet. Finally, the cinnamon apple was just right. The spice subdued the normal sugary flavor and I was finally able to finish a bag of these puppies.

I'd recommend the apple cinnamon. It was yummy, but not particular filling. However, they are only 75 calories per bag, so you can add it to a sandwich and call it a meal. One out of four flavors I guess isn't that bad ...

Have not seen this product in UK when I was there 6 years ago. Must be new. Hmmmmm... I still prefer corn or potato chips!

Hi Kelly, Thanks for visiting my blog. I've never seen these on sale in the UK. I think they must make them to export...
