I've been hearing a lot of good things about Aldi and their great value prices. I tried some of their Jaffa cake biscuits at a friends house and was won over by their great taste. I took a trip to Aldi and came home laden with fresh fruit, vegetables, ham, chorizo, American marshmallows, frozen goods and much more for the bargain price of under £20. One of the snacks I picked up was this 18 pack of Snackrite crisps in kid friendly varieties of Cheese Grids, Bacon Rashers and Monster Claws for only £1.49. These are half the price of the branded or other supermarket varieties seeing as a 6 pack of crisps usually costs about £1. Now we all know which crisps these are 'copying' but how do they compare in taste?
The only negative point is that there were not many 'claws' in a pack, although each claw is quite big in size. Again they are only 87 calories per bag and the ingredients are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
I am usually a bit reluctant to buy such large multipacks of crisps as that can mean some packs go to waste (we don't eat crisps every day and the kids get bored if they have the same flavour too often), but that certainly wouldn't happen with this pack. In fact they seem to be disappearing at an alarmingly fast rate!
Note: I updated the first photo of this review to reflect the latest version of this crisps which contain Cheese Puffs rather than Cheese Grids.
These are such lovely pictures! I go to my local Aldi all the time to buy my food and toilet paper. It is a nice place to shop but you must remember to take your own bags.ReplyDelete
I ate at Aldi once and your right, you need to buy toilet roll after eating this rubbish.Delete
Funny, have you thought of doing stand up? You'd be great!Delete
Actually their Bacon Rashers have a lot more flavour than Frazzles thesedays, just wish they did them in adult sized bags too! (Not 150g before anyone pipes up, I'm not a fat Jeremy Kyle watcher).
Best crisps I have ever tasted are you mad mate. So much flavour in them bad boys better than walkers in my opinion.Delete
Ive just tried the bacon rashers thinking they'd be like Frazzles. They are rank. Don't taste of bacon and leave a foul taste in the mouth.Delete

I well rate them but of late have to say the standard of the crisps is less than poor.. Hard stale like crisps :( Noticed first on Monster claws which happened a few times & more recent on 18 pack ..ReplyDelete
Quality Control needs a kick up..
Crisp Fiend ;-Pp
Sorry for my super late reply to this but thank you for your comment. I noticed stale crisps in a multipack I bought recently too. Also some of the packs had been caught and sealed into the actual sides of the outer bag. Very odd :(Delete

I could deal with the odd bag being sealed to the side of the multipack, but then I got a multipack of cheese curls (quaver type ones). I took a bag out of the multipack and it looked like a normal sealed bag. As I squeezed it you can feel that there is NOTHING inside lol. Taking the piss imo. I still have the sealed bag full of air. Considering sending it back to them. I know they are cheap and the quality can't be expected to be as good as walkers. But please come on, thats a joke !!ReplyDelete
go to tesco;s they dont charge you for a bag a bag like tesco's (in aldi) costs 3p What A rip Off"ReplyDelete
3p for a 'bag a bag'? Waaaa! Need to remortgage the house.Delete
If you're that bothered just get a box from one of their fruit and veg products and use that. Plus you get a free cardboard box! Bonus!
I've just about managed to translate that. So many errors in such a small outburst. I think what was meant was:Delete
"Go to Tesco; they don't charge you for a bag. In Aldi it costs 3p. What a rip off!"
Had my first ever bag of Monster Claws last night. When I woke this morning my left foot was covered in blue fur and my right testice has swollen to the size of a basketball , has any else experienced similar issues ?ReplyDelete
sorry testice = testicle. Typos are another symptom (other posts seem to support this)ReplyDelete
I,ve gt to say after yrs of eating walkers crisp a friend of mine said to me try snackrites from aldi ,so I did and hvnt looked back not only is the price very cheap the quality and taste are exellant and much better than any other brand of crisp around so thank youReplyDelete
I had dare crisps and I woke up with bum rashesReplyDelete
I want cheese evertwhereReplyDelete
I have a friend who buys your cheese griddy product and adores them greatly and constantly talks about them to us to buy your cheese grid product, however due to her constant bragging about eating your product im afraid i will not be a buyer of your cheese grids as she knows they have a strong pungent smell none of us are fond of, thank you college friend for ruining this crisp snack for us all!ReplyDelete
I am at this very moment eating a bag of pickled onion claws....
I have just found a fucking bacon rasher in there.
Any comments on this?
You are the chosen one, go northDelete
I was astonished to find only 7 whole claws and a toe in my back of Monster Claws. I shall think twice about purchasing this item again.Delete
Yours still hungry.
I am very disappointed with your company, I made my sons pack lunch for school today and he came home so upset because he could not eat his crisps because they were ready salted in a smokey bacon packet but I have kept them! I am making a complaint to snack rite and Aldi.ReplyDelete
I found a soggy pack of crisps and I demand snackrite to check all of their crisps before sending them to AldiReplyDelete
I purchased the ready salted crisps today they were so salty I couldn't eat them they were terrible. No more snackrite crisps for me .ReplyDelete
I don't know what you are all on about any of the snackrite crisps I have ever had from Aldi haven't been 10x better than walkers and any other leading brandReplyDelete
Snackrite crisps are ok but i get bad constipation after eating them yet i dont if i eat any other brand..had anyone else haf yhis..ReplyDelete
I have to agree Snackrites may be tastey but the packing is below standard. The packets are sometimes open in the multi packs, there are bits of burnt potatoes in some of the packs, loose crisp in the multi pack bag which hold the 6 packets of crisp, poor seems. My daughter opened a packet which had 5 crisp in the bag despite the packet said 25g. Children should be supervised when opening a packet of Snackrites because you cannot be sure what you will find inside. Aldi should terminate business with Snackrites until Snackrites identify the reason for such poor standards, identify the problem, correct it, raise their standards and start following good food practice and procedures. Unfortunately I will not be buying anymore SnackriteReplyDelete
I have not had any problems with any of Snackrite's crisps and other snacks. They are delish. I love them, even my dog loves them :)ReplyDelete
Nothing wrong with Snackrite crisps,at £2.49 for 30 bags even if I have to throw a couple away due to damage in transit its still a bargainReplyDelete
we buy snackrite 6 pack of ready salted crisps every week some of the crisps are soft (packaging poor) We have also had 3 packs of the 6 pack that where very very salty but we love these crisp the flavour is the best just need to step up quality control for packagingReplyDelete
Ready salted needs more flavour along with chicken. But prawn cocktail and smokey bacon is A okay. Beef and onion generally needs more work!ReplyDelete
Cheese and onion also lacks flavourReplyDelete
The crisps are rlly good but pls add less seasoning to your cheese and onion crisps and prawn cocktail crisps 😁ReplyDelete
