Sensible Portions' Snacks: Veggie Straws

The Sensible Portions' Veggie Straws Original flavour are a healthier snack option that are actually very delicious! I'm eating them as I write this *munch munch munch*. They are very crunchy, light and hollow like a straw on the inside (kind of obvious, right?) with a very mild flavour.

Sensible Portions also have Potato Straws in Rosemary and Olive Oil and Salt and Vinegar flavours, and Apple Straws in Original Cinnamon flavour.

The Veggie Straws packaging boasts: No Artificial Ingredients, 0 Trans Fat, Cholesterol Free, No Preservatives.

Veggie Straws (Original) Ingredients: Potato flour (potato flakes, potato starch), sunflower oil, corn starch, tomato puree, spinach powder, salt, sugar, turmeric.
