Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Kettle Lentil and Potato Curls Confirmed sighting: Kettle Lentil and Potato Curls
Posted: 17:02 Tue 05-Dec-2006. Price: £1.39 for 5 bag multipack. Location: Sainsbury's, Plymouth. Sub-flavours: "Curiously Cheeky Cheese"; "Tounge Twisting Tang". Nutritional unusualness: Just 90 calories and 0.5g of salt per 24g bag.
"Magnetic Ham Sandwich" reports: Following on from their recently launched - and very tasty - lentil-based Crispy Bakes, Kettle have now come up with new Curls - again using lentil flour as the main ingredient. They're available in two different Curly flavours. There's a very cheesy Four Cheese and Red Onion, and a nicely tangy Salt and Malt Vinegar to choose from - as ever Kettle are generous with the amount of flavour they manage to get into each bag. But unlike the Crispy Bakes, which are an easily chewed tube shape, these Curls are a bit too hard and twisted to enjoy munching. They are very low in fat and salt though, making for a healthy snack. With a seemingly never-ending procession of healthy eating options available nowadays though, I'm already missing the good old days when snacks were bad for you and proud of it.

...As usual, not too much to add to "Magnetic Ham Sandwich's" comprehensive observations, though I recently found this flash-heavy site implying that Kettle Foods US are currently trialling Aztec Chocolate, Island Jerk, Twisted Chili Lime, Royal Indian Curry, and Dragon 5 Spice varieties.

Comment: These are nice but not as good as the crispy bakes, they are too hard, crisps shouldn't be tooth-breakers!

Comment: Do they give good crunch like the crispy bakes do then? I love a good crunch.

Comment: They give a better crunch. My issue is more with the flavours aren't as nice as the crispy bakes. The basil and tomato crispy bakes are divine. Cheese and onion, and salt and vinegar are old hat for the crispy curls!

Comment: Look at those great flavours that Kettle Foods US is doing, Aztec Chocolate, Island Jerk, Twisted Chili Lime, Royal Indian Curry, and Dragon 5 Spice, then look at the unholy obsessive cheesefest that is Kettle Foods UK, it's like they're on a mission to use every type of cheese out there, it sucks

Comment: If I want to be healthy I'll eat some dry ryvita... I don't... so I'll eat proper crisps that taste nice and I enjoy eating.

Comment: Christ almighty have a look at the Kettle Foods US range of snacks from potato chips to tortillas to pretzels similarly then check out Ben & Jerry's US, it's enough to make a UK bound snack fan weep
