REVIEW: Yushoi Snacks (YB)

I was sent some Yushoi Snapea Rice Sticks to review...

Yushoi snacks are made from peas - sounds odd right? But they are actually really delicious. Of course, this also makes them a healthy snack and contain less than 100 calories per pack! As well as being a good source of protein and high in fibre! You really can't ask for much more in a snack! In fact, they are also not full of nasties  - no MSG, artificial colourings or flavourings AND they're suitable for vegetarians (this made hubby happy!). They are made from 74% green peas.

First of all, I tried Yushoi Snapea Rice Sticks Lightly Salted flavour. You can definitely tell they are made from peas as you can taste it, but in a nice way, it's not overpowering, so even if you're not a big fan of peas, you can still enjoy them. They're really easy to eat as well, not mega crunchy like normal crisps. I think these had a good balance of taste and flavour. The lightly tinged green colour isn't the most appealing colour for a snack versus normal crisps and other similar snacks, but in terms of taste, they are equally as good if not better. They are actually really quite filling compared to other snacks too.

Next I tried the Soy & Balsamic vinegar - a delicious combination of flavours that works well with this snack. Again, just the right amount of flavour and I could eat them all day long! My husband and eldest son tried them too, and they both enjoyed them.

The next flavour I tried was the Smoked Salt & Szechaun Pepper. I expected this flavour to be one of my favourites, but I actually didn't enjoy this flavour. I can't quite decide why, but the flavours just didn't work for me. 

Finally, I tried the Sweet Chilli & Lemon. I saved these for last, thinking they were going to be my favourite, but again, the flavour just didn't work for me. They were OK, but just not a flavour that works with the snack, I felt.

Overall, the Soy & Balsamic Vinegar were my favourites and the Lightly Salted were a very close second. I didn't much rate the other two flavours. Maybe they just don't work with the snack (i.e. they might be fine for normal crisps, but in my opinion, they just don;t work with these).

I could definitely see me buying these again though in the flavours I liked. I really did enjoy them and I hope I see them in the shops so I can have them again. They are tasty, easy to eat, healthy and low cal as well.
