Crisps (as these will henceforth be referred to for SEO purposes).
Alongside the dog, low quality lesbian porn, and YouTube videos about how to properly bleed a radiator, they truly are a man’s best friend.
The perfect accompaniment to sandwiches, dips and Gary Lineker’s personal finances, crisps tend to get a bad wrap in the fitness industry for providing empty calories and being practically pointless.
Which is fair enough.
The latest comes from one of our very favourite supplement companies, The Protein Works.
TPW Protein Snackers are essentially a healthier, high protein alternative to traditional crisps, providing a nutritious and convenient way to boost protein intake during the day.
They are currently available in two different flavours, ‘Barbeque’ and ‘Sour Cream & Onion’.
The chief ingredient of The Protein Works protein crisps are *hypocrite alert* soy protein concentrate, sunflower oil, tapioca starch and soy fibres.
Per 30g pack the key numbers look like this:
|Carbs (of which sugar)||4.7g (1.2g)|
|Fat (of which saturates)||3.9g (0.3g)|
High in protein and fibre and low in sugar – better than a bag of Frazzles that’s for sure!
I tried both the BBQ and Sour Cream & Onion flavours.
Both were very pleasant, particularly the latter which tasted like Pringles used to in the good old days.
Of course Pringles now taste like salt and dust and won’t help you build cannonball-like delts.
Textually they had a nice crunch if a bit dry – but that’s really par for the course when it comes to protein crisps.
A single pack of Protein Snackers will set you back £1.79 or it’s £9.99 for a pack of 6 (£1.67 each).
Clearly this is more than a standard bag of crisps, but if you’re serious about strength and conditioning (and snacking), then this is decent value for money.
However, Go Nutrition’s Protein Chips are marginally cheaper and, in my opinion, taste that bit better, so, for me, I would opt for these instead.
Personally I’d rather graze on good old fashion nuts (whatever this image conjures up is more a reflection of you – if it’s me gargling and old man’s balls then grow up).
They’ll give you a similar protein hit per serving and are chocked full of good fats and nutrients.
However, if you really struggle to not destroy a large bag of kettle chips in one sitting and want to stay lean then these are an ideal product for you.
Tasty, crunchy, and with decent nutritional figures, The Protein Works Protein Snackers would make a great addition to any gym goers daily diet.
Great stuff chaps.
