Velvet Crunch Cassava Snacks

A new appearance on the shelves recently are Velvet Crunch, which are made from the cassava plant rather than potatoes. Currently they have been found in two flavours: Cheddar Cheese & Spring Onion and Thai Sweet Chilli Flavour.

These crunchy, round snacks have a delicate, melt in your mouth texture which is a little like prawn crackers, but crunchier, and they taste great. As well as this, each 20g packet has only 83 calories or 81 for the Thai flavour. These have been found in branches of Tesco and Costcutter but are likely to be widely available.

UPDATE: February 2012. New flavour available - Velvet Crunch Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar - See this Post.

Nutritional Information: Per 20g Cheddar Cheese bag: 83 calories, 0.4g protein, 15.8g carbohydrates, 2.2g sugars, 2.0g fat, 0.2g saturated fats, 0.7g fibre, 0.4g salt.
