Review - Yushoi snapea rice sticks

If like me you start the year with good intentions to eat healthier and choose healthier options then these snacks may be a great alternative to crisps for you. I was sent a variety of flavours of these alternative to crisp products to try.

Yushoi Snapea rice sticks are a source of protein, 96 calories or less per 21g serving, high in fibre, nut free and have no artificial colours, flavourings or MSG.

Made from 68% green peas and baked as opposed to fried, the range is available in five flavours; Lightly Salted, Soy & Balsamic Vinegar, Smoked Salt & Szechuan Pepper, Sweet Chilli & Lemon and new Coconut & Chilli.

The range is also Vegetarian Society Approved. The Lightly Salted and Coconut & Chilli variants are also gluten free, with plans in place for the rest of the range to follow in the coming months. With the exclusion of Coconut & Chilli, all variants are also suitable for vegans.

The snacks are available from Tesco, Coop, Sainsbury’s, Whole Foods Market and online with Amazon and Ocado, in four pack formats; 21g (RRP 55p), 63g (RRP £1.29), 105g (RRP £1.99) and 6x21g multipack (RRP £1.79).  

Great on the go, perfect with lunch and perfect for parties with friends Yushoi are a great better for you alternative to fried potato crisps.

I was really pleasantly surprised at how they tasted and the texture as often alternative baked products can be very dry and like eating cardboard. The choice of flavours was good and offered a change from the normal standard crisps range. The different flavours accompany the different texture you get from the peas so make a really interesting but pleasant snack alternative, great for making those small changes in a bid to have a healthier lifestyle, and an added bonus the kids enjoyed them so a healthier alternative for all.
