I love Sunbites! I have never had them before this and I am hooked and would definately recommend them to friends. I liked the onion and rosemary best as it was unusual but not too strong. I would like a salt and vinegar flavour as I am bored with the snack a jacks and these have the same Weight watchers points (3). I like the fact that they are only 120 calories but are extremely tasty and extra crunchy (a real bonus when you are on a diet!!). The fact that they are wholegrain is a bonus and I would eat these happily with my lunch. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to try these for free!

Just tried the chilli ones.

They taste really nice at first, but leave a horrible aftertaste. I can still taste it in the roof of my mouth! I didn't really care for them.

1 down, 4 to go grin

oh, obv going to answer proper Qs once I've scoffed the lot! grin

They arrived this morning, and in the interests of proper research have decided that there should be one constant taster. If DCs insist on trying, they must share.

So, started with lightly salted. Very nice. Shame the DCs won't be home for another couple of hours, so I'll have a wait till the next flavour.....

Just marking spot for when ours are delivered.

I dc can't wait.

LOVE THEM!! Arrived at lunch time, we had a bag each, but tasted each others.

Each flavour is lovely, there just isnt enough of them in one bag. Not sure if they are the same weight as ordinary walkers, but becuase they are so nice, i could easily eat 2 packets.

My favourinte flavour is the cracked black pepper & i also love the chilli.

They feel like crisps when you are eating them which sounds weird, but snacks like snackajacks are soggy and i feel like they are crisp substitutes, BUT sunbites dont. They are crunchy and gorgeous.

I love the fact that they contain fibre, and the 30% less fat is a bonus because i am ALWAYS on a diet, therefore i have no guilt with eating them.

They are enarly always on offer and so are very good value for money.

I would and have recomended them to family & friends...wont share them though grin
Thanks for the freebies, they taste even better when they are free smile

justhe1 Wed 31-Aug-11 14:04:02

Sorry, just to add, becuase they are free of preservatives/colours etc i am very happy for ds to have them, he loved them too.
grin

TheRealMBJ Wed 31-Aug-11 14:04:24

Mine arrived this morning too. Have shared the sweet chilli ones with DS (I had to he wouldn't let me eat them on my own)

I like the packaging, the matt finish is lovely. The flavour was ok. Not mind boggling but Nice. Certainly different from normal crisps although DS didn't seem to mind. I'll try the rest over the next. Few days and give proper feedback then.

mustdash Wed 31-Aug-11 17:12:43

So, all DCs in from school and one packet safely stashed for me for lunchtime tomorrow. (my favourite flavour)

I like the new packaging. They do seem a bit smaller than most packets of crisps etc, but probably aren't - we don't eat crisps often.

The favourite flavours is an odd one, TBH, the DDs all said their favourite flavour was the packet they started off choosing. That said DD1 loved the cheesy ones best, DD2 the chilli, and DD3 the rosemary. My favourite is the black pepper, but I did like the salted ones too.

What we like about them most is the texture. DCs all agreed.

We'd definitely recommend them to friends.

Thanks!

I think they were supposed to arrive today, but instead I got a card through the door to say that I can't collect them from the sorting office for at least 48 HOURS shock.

I want my sunbites! <stamps foot and sulks> grin

I have no revieved mine yet so marking place for when I do!

Today we have tried cheddar and caremalisded onion - dc and dh said they didnt taste of either although they were crispy - i was left some formy return from work and quite enjoyed them, they tasted a bit like doritos. I have hidden the others and will enjoy a full bag of another flavour myself tonight. Would irecommend them - well they are ok so far and i supose if i fancied doritos i would have a bag if they were cheaper.

BikeRunSki Brazil Wed 31-Aug-11 18:32:51

I havn't got mine yet.

LaWeasel Wed 31-Aug-11 18:47:54

Not here yet either, ridiculously excited that I finally got picked for something though grin

LifeOfKate Wed 31-Aug-11 19:45:11

Marking place for when mine arrive smile

LaWeasel - me too, although DH was a bit hmm that I got picked for crisps and not for irons, wiis etc grin

Choufleur Wed 31-Aug-11 19:47:18

Got mine today. Tried the cheese and onion ones. I liked them, so did DH, although I'm not that keen on cheese and onion so probably wouldn't buy that flavour.

They are quite different to crisps though.

DS (7) had the slightly sea salted flavour and said they were the best crisps he's ever had.

Will answer the questions when I have eaten the rest of them.

Hope to get mine soon!! Got the thread on Watch!!

wompoopigeon Wed 31-Aug-11 20:10:55

Oh oh where are mine? I am bloody hungry and pregnant.
<eyes up postie to see if he has crumbs on his chin>

Coca Wed 31-Aug-11 20:13:57

Will answer properly when I have tried all of them, just wanted to say I loved the Sour Cream ones. Thank you nowyouhavehadawee they do remind me of doritos! It was really annoying me grin

Oh no, I missed delivery of mine. Will have to collect them from the sorting office on Friday.

I want mine to come tomorrow whilst I am the only one in the house so I can snaffle all of them!!!

Will be watching out for Mr Postie!!!

I haven't had mine yet. Unless DH and the girls are lying to me...

Collision Wed 31-Aug-11 20:51:10
