Snack’em by Gardenia Lentil Chips
You’re lounging on the couch in sweatpants, the aircon’s on, and your favourite drama’s rolling on Netflix. Sounds like the perfect day in, but one thing’s missing: a snack. Fitspos can say what they want, but TV time isn’t complete until you’re well-armed with munchies.
Before you reach for some lao hong biscuits, know that Gardenia has a trio of new Snack’em Lentil Chips at just $2.80 per can. These savoury MSG-free goodies come in 3 flavours - Parmesan, Kimchi, and Curry - and might just push regular potato chips to side bae status. They’re currently only found in neighbourhood mama shops, so you’ll be supporting small local businesses when you buy them!
P.S.: Read on to find out how to win a staycation at Lloyd’s Inn in the Snap’em before you Snack’em contest!
Parmesan, Kimchi, and Curry Snack’em Lentil Chips by Gardenia
Snack’em by Gardenia’s Lentil Chips are packaged in slim canisters for easy munching and storage - just pop the airtight lid on and off. Unlike most crisps, these won’t have you struggling to tear the wrapper open and later having to find a box to keep everything in.
Being fans of cheese, we dove straight for the Parmesan one. I’ve a gripe with many cheese-flavoured snacks tasting artificial, but this one doesn’t. With the parmesan flavour kept light, the slight sharpness of the lentil dominates, giving the chips a taste that’s very similar to papadum.
Let’s just say that I polished off more than three quarters of the tube in one sitting. Single-handedly.
If you’re the kind who simply has to add chilli to every meal, the Kimchi flavour is for you. While it doesn’t exactly taste like the fermented cabbage dish in its true form, it’s got just enough spice and a zingy tinge of sourness.
Don’t worry about setting your tongue on fire, because even those who can only go for the lowest spiciness level when ordering ma la will be able to handle this.
Many of us drench our prata in curry, some even going so far as to hoard curry sauce packets from fast food outlets to use not just on our fries but also in our daily meals. If you’re one of those people, the Curry flavour will certainly curry favour with you.
Think of this as papadum dipped in a strong, thick curry, only not soggy. Yum!
