Mini Chive & Onion Twists - ASDA, Sainsbury's

Mini Chive & Onion Twists are deliciously mouth watering, crisp and buttery twists of pastry. ASDA and Sainsbury both sell a very similar product.

ASDA’s Mini Chive & Onion Twists are sold as ‘party nibbles’ and are one of the ‘Chosen by You’ range of products.

Sainsbury's Chive & Onion Mini Twists are a relatively new product to the store and are found along with the crackers and crispbreads.

Both packs contain 125g. ASDA's pack contains 52 mini twists and holds enough for 14 servings according to the information on the pack. Since a serving has 45 calories, this means that one serving equates to 3.7 twists!

They are very similar in every way. Same style of packaging, same looks and same taste. Perhaps they're made by the same manufacturer?  Unfortunately, they are both high in fat and salt, with a medium sugar content.

But if you stick to two or three, there’s no reason why those on a diet or watching their weight, can’t enjoy the buttery delights of these tasty treats.
