Walkers Mighty Lights Review


Last week we had a lovely surprise when the postman came by one morning with more parcels with one of them being a box of crisps. Walkers had very kindly send us three packs of crisps from their new Mighty Lights range. Not just single packets, but a multi pack of each flavour! The three flavours were Roast chicken, Lightly salted and Cheese and Onion. Even though it was only 9am i was rather hungry and could't wait to rip open a packet...or two!


Of course Amelia was on standby as she always is when there's food about and was eager to have a few nibbles herself. I don't tend to give her crisps only with the exception of quavers but seeing as these are much healthier than your average packet of crisps i thought what the heck!

I have always had an unhealthy addiction to crisps, sometimes even demolishing a multipack to myself whilst watching TV in the evening. Don't judge me - they are just too good! They are my go-to snack and always handy to have in the cupboard when you need to grab something quick to eat if you are peckish. 


Walkers Mighty Lights boast to having 30% less fat than standard crisps, and are made from real potatoes with no artificial colours, MSG or preservatives as well as being a source of fibre! Walkers Mighty Lights are ridged potato crisps which i much prefer as they tend to hold their flavour better. Each pack is 25g, containing 114 calories, 4.7g of fat, 0.5g of which is saturated fat. Not only that but they are also suitable for vegetarians...even the Roasted Chicken flavour!


My favourite flavours were Roasted Chicken followed by Lightly Salted. I've never been a fan of Cheese and Onion so Andy happily tested these for me and said they were just like your usual pack of crisps however the flavour was much stronger which was good although it wasn't overpowering. Personally my favourite flavour of crisps is Ready Salted so the Lightly Salted was quickly finished by myself. Even though they tasted slightly different than your average Ready Salted packet of crisps i found it to be just as good in flavour. Amelia had a few bites of each flavour and then does what she usually does and throws them on the floor and stomps on them. Little madam. She has since then helped me eat a few crisps at lunch times along with some sandwiches. 

Overall i am extremely impressed with the new Mighty Lights range from Walkers and will definitely be purchasing some on our next food shop, however i was wondering where the Salt and Vinegar flavour was? I would love to see Salt and Vinegar in there too! Perhaps that would be something to think about for the future. 

Mighty Lights are now available to purchase at your local supermarket and would be perfect for the changing bag on day trips and also children's lunch boxes, so go on give them a try! 

What is your favourite crisp flavour?

* This is a sponsored review and we were given three packs of multipack Walkers crisps to try out for the purpose of the review. All opinions are my own (including Andy's and Amelia's).

  16. Showing my age but the crisp packets now seem to be half empty, I'm sure they used to contain more but I have tried the Roast Chicken flavour and they were very nice and I didn't feel as if I had to go and open another packet to satisfy my urge for crisps :)

  46. Love Beef flavoured! Three years ago I had a gastric bypass so meat is one of the things I find difficult to eat. Yet I love meat so Beef crisps are a good substitute! (If your interested I have lost 7 stones and feel EPIC!!!!) LOL. I can now eat anything I want, my stomach determines the quantity and tells me when to stop.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh I could really do with some crisps now...I prefer ready salted to most others...or anything cheese flavoured!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Mmmm would love to try the Cheese & Onion ones, they look lovely! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Personally not a crisp fan, but these will be better for the grandchildren :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Salt and Vinegar - not sure I'd buy these as in my experience so-called "light" crisps don't taste all that nice, we rarely eat them in any event ;o) (Rafflecopter entries for competition in my real name of Nikki Hayes)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love these! I never buy full fat crisps! X

    ReplyDelete
  52. Lucky you getting to review something tasty. My favourite flavour of crisps is and cheese and onion. I prefer ridged crisps:- I don't know if it is psychological (all in my mind/ though processing) but somehow I think they are crisper / crunchier and more filling. I do feel naughty when I eat crisps because one small pack never seems enough. Whilst I am also aware that crisps are high in saturated fat, which we keep being told to be careful of :- for health reasons. I wasn't aware of Walkers Mighty Lights, so thanks for the information.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Tried these when they first came out on offer, don't like them very much neither did my 6yr old :-(

    ReplyDelete
  102. these look good! My fave is Golden Wonder Salt & Vinegar.. yum. Similarly i can easily demolish a multipack in a sitting, if my husband hasn't got there first!!

    ReplyDelete
  103. They sound great, must get some!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. oooh, would have enjoyed this task! I love Walkers roast chicken & lemon sensations!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Bumped into a friend yesterday who's son was eating a packet of these (chicken flavour) so I naughtily pinched one. It was yummy! I had to refrain from stealing the rest of the bag! <3

    ReplyDelete
  106. yum! crisps dont last long in our house :)

    ReplyDelete
  107. I brought a pack of cheese and onion crisps on offer and they tasted lovely - although I still think that the baked option tastes better, and is even healthier

    ReplyDelete
  108. Cheese n onion is my fave flavour and I will admit to being like you with regards to eating crisps (but that's a secret so shhhh don;t tell!) - these look nice, lightly ridged make them more interesting I think :)

    ReplyDelete
  109. The crisps are so yummy. Make me feel so saintly too!

    ReplyDelete
  110. These sound lovely, salt and vinegar for me please.

    ReplyDelete

  117. Havn't tried these yet but intend to

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  119. These look very yummy thanks for the review I shall have to look out for a packet

    ReplyDelete
  120. crisp flavours are often out of the question for me because I'm vegetarian and coeliac. Many flavours (including cheese and onion for some strange reason) are not suitable for veggies and some flavourings contain gluten. So I have to stick to ready salted.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Will put these on my shopping list :)

    ReplyDelete
  122. I love Worcester Sauce crisps but always looking for a healthier option so these might be worth a try.

    ReplyDelete
  123. These will do me for my mid morning snack :)
