The Healthier Chips

Editorial Sponsor

Since young, I’ve always preferred savoury food to sweet ones. That being said, chips are always stocked up in my tidbits corner.

Chips are always listed as junk food, but I just can’t stop munching on them. They are always flavourful and yums but then it’s always too sinful and unhealthy. How I wish I could munch on chips without feeling guilty.

Putting guilt aside, I’m happy to be spoiled by The Cocoa Trees’ deliverance of some chips over. 

For more than 75 years, Lorenz Snack-World produces high-quality snacks that bring fun and pleasure. They’re made in Germany and the crispy potato chips under Naturals are made of all-natural ingredients. The potatoes are locally grown (Germany) and thinly sliced with their skins on before being baked in nutritious sunflower oil and then flavoured with tangy spices - all with no artificial flavourings or preservatives.

Naturals Sea Salt and Pepper 100G
A hint of pepper and a pinch of sea salt make Naturals Sea Salt & Pepper an irresistible snack pleasure.

Potato crisps with sea salt and pepper; Its ingredients are potatoes, sunflower oil, salt, sea salt, pepper, natural pepper flavouring with other natural flavourings, yeast extract powder, sweet whey powder.

Verdict: Very flavourful, in fact it comes with a little spice punch that is not too salty. A very good blend of both spices  (Rate: 3/5)

Naturals Classic 100g
The variety "Classic" within the Naturals range is popular thanks to its natural and subtle taste. Slices of potatoes are baked until crisp in sunflower oil and seasoned only with a pinch of sea salt. The result is a pure and natural snack pleasure.

Potato crisps with sea salt; Its ingredients are potatoes, sunflower oil, salt, sea salt.

Verdict: Really a classic chip that does not taste super salty unlike the rest outside. And I don’t taste the oil stench after eating it. A classic chip to have during gatherings, a chip that fits all. (Rate: 3/5)

Naturals Mild Paprika 100g
The mild Paprika spice with a light fruity note turns this Naturals variety into more than just Paprika chips! 

Potato crisps with paprika flavour. Its ingredients are potatoes, sunflower oil, salt, sea salt, paprika powder, onion powder, tomato powder, natural flavouring, yeast extract powder, sweet whey powder, sugar.
Verdict: A tangy chip that my hubby loved! I quite like the chips too. At first, I thought it was spicy as there was a photo of the capsicum but there’s a twist of tomato that I think you will finish the whole packet without knowing it! (Rate: 4/5)

Naturals Rosemary 100g
The well known combination of potatoes and rosemary makes our newest addition to the Naturals range a very delicate crisp enjoyment. 

Potato crisps with rosemary flavour. Its ingredients are potatoes, sunflower oil, salt, sea salt, sweet whey powder, sugar, onion powder, rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, parsley, basil, natural flavouring, yeast extract powder.

Verdict: A very unique flavour, I could smell the rosemary the moment I opened the packet. Even the hubz could taste the herbs. A very Italian flavoured chip to have, which I think I will buy off the shelves. (Rate: 3.5/5)

Naturals Balsamic Vinegar 100g
Crispy potato chips refined with a mild hint of Balsamic vinegar for exceptional chip indulgence.

Potato crisps with balsamic flavour; Its ingredients are potatoes, sunflower oil, salt, sea salt, natural flavouring, balsamic vinegar powder, onion powder, sweet whey powder, sugar, vinegar extract, yeast extract powder.
Verdict: I was looking forward to this flavour the most as I like balsamic vinegar on my salads. Smelled a sourish herb when I opened the packet. I was a little shocked by the smell, but the taste was a better than it smells. Although I am not exactly a lover of this chip, but it’s an interesting flavour to have. (Rate: 2.5/5)

  1. Chips are always listed as junk food but it is hard to imagine my life without them. I was always interested in chips in Japan. They are so different there and have strange tastes. This post was super informative.
