The Perfect Xmas Nibbles With Pop Chips

It’s official. It’s Christmas. And I actually love nothing more than settling down on the sofa, with a good film or classic sitcom and nibbling on some great snacks. From Chocolate Oranges to a whole tub of peanuts I WILL sniff that food out and eat the lot! Factor in my pregnancy and this hunt for food just gets more hardcore!

But… there are only so many pounds that I am allowed to put on (and £’s to spend!) at Christmas time. I can’t be the only woman that feels soooo guilty about how much she has chowed through over the festive period. But… there is a saviour! Popchips!


Popchips are the wonderful popped crisps (We say crisps, they say chips) that are a much healthier alternative to what you may usually snack on- they are less than half the fat of fried potato crisps.

The geniuses at Popchips select the finest potatoes and create a masterpiece! They arn’t fried or baked but ‘popped’ in a unique way, then seasoned with all-natural ingredients. A bag of Popchips are less than 100 calories per pack (actually my favourite flavour – sour cream and onion- are just 94 calories) and all packs contain no cholesterol and 0g of trans fats…. now that I like!! Guilt free Christmas snacking!



I tasted (OK, devoured) Sour Cream and Onion, Salt & Pepper, Barbeque, Salt and Vinegar and Original flavours, and all were as crisp and crunchy as each other. They weren’t greasy like your typical crisp, but their flavour was intense. Totally perfect, guilt free, crispy, flavoursome, round crisps, sorry chips, of awesome! I might be addicted.


Popchips are widely available all over the UK in stores and online.
