We try out the new Scotty Brand Beetroot Crisps – what do they taste like?

It’s no secret that we are fans of Scotty Brand, so when they asked us to give these beetroot crisps a try, we didn’t give it a second thought.  We had noticed them in Aldi as well, so purchased a couple of packets, just for research purposes you know 😉

Albert Bartlett, the company behind Scotty Brand, started their foray into food by boiling up beetroot in a tin bathtub and selling it locally.

Beetroot is good for you

Time may have moved on,  however beetroot is one of the few things that grow exceedingly well in the UK.  A much maligned veg, there are lots of things you can do with beetroot – pickled, grilled, roasted and boiled.  They are a source of potassium, manganese and folate (vitamin B9).

Taste test

There are three flavours in the range, Thai Sweet Chilli, Lime and Coriander and, Cheese and Onion.  We tasted each flavour on their own and with dips.

Cheese and Onion – similar to quavers in texture and taste.  These were far too easy to eat out of the packet! The sweetness of beetroot with the tang of cheese and onion.  Perfect on their own and with a dip.

Thai Sweet Chilli – Think of spicy Thai prawn crackers, that is what these were like.   Easy to eat on their own, perfect with a dip.

Lime and Coriander – almost like little poppadoms, these were bursting with flavour.  Again perfect for dipping as well as in a bowl for snacking.
