just to remind you ..i’m not a writer, and i’m certainly not a food writer. this is likely blatently obvious but i feel the need to point it out from time to time.

crisps are my weakness. not just because of the savoury flavours, but the crunch too. love a good crunch.
as part of my gluten-free reviews here on the blog, wellaby’s sent me some of their simple bakes to try. they’re a wholegrain snack that’s kind of a mix of crisps and small thin crackers. they come in three flavours: smoky bbq, salt & pepper and spicy chilli. all three are full of flavour and you certainly get a good amount in each packet.
simple bakes are all gluten free, nut free, vegan and free of artificial colours and flavours as well as preservatives. if you’re interested they’re also less than 100 calories per serving and have no trans fats. read this post
