Little Star presents…..Walkers Mighty Lights Crisps, but never work with children and animals….

This is a sponsored review.

It appears that you can find THE most peculiar things in the jungle these days…..

Crisps in the Amazon – who would have thought it, and purple monkeys too…quick call David Attenborough now, we have discovered a new species Monkeyus Purplus – and his favourite crisps seem to be Walkers Mighty Lights!

Apparently they are a wee bit better for him that normal crisps, so could be a good alternative to his usual monkey lunch box crisps as they are (serious stuff….):

  • 30% less fat than standard crisps
  • Without artifical colours or preservatives
  • MSG-less
  • Another source of fibre in his diet, aside from the Bananas of course
  • Suitable for vegetarians, though I think that Croc (his friend) might actually have preferred the real chickens to the Roast Chicken flavours
  • Made with real tatties – which you don’t normally find growing in his jungle… *honest*
  • Include ridges for extra crunch, or so Croc says with his amazing knashers!

Not only this, but his owners seem to like them…they managed to tuck into them rather nicely with their healthy lunch a few days ago…wrap, crisps and all!

Chatterbox, who looks after me once in a while, even made a self-portrait with them! She thought they were rather yummy, and even said:

I don’t normally like Chicken crisps, mummy, but these ones are actually rather nice.

Walkers Mighty Lights Meal: Self Portrait

In the jungle we don’t tend to take packed lunches, but like to go searching for our own food.

However, when we want a packed lunch, we don’t normally add crisps. Why? Because jungle parents are a stickler for healthy eating, as you can see from these lunch photos. They do allow us crisps once in a while, but not too regularly. With 30% less fat, we might get away with having a few more packets in with our lunch boxes at school. They won’t replace the bananas, but they could definitely make a nice wee treat alongside them.

Flavours available are Cheese & Onion, Lightly Salted and Roast Chicken.

Bring on the Prawn Cocktail say these jungle friends! Croc wants to go hunting for them in the Amazon River, freshwater prawns are THE best for crisps (apparently). Despite the lack of Prawn Cocktail, the three flavours available did go down well, as you can see. Favourites were:

  • Croc / Chatterbox: Roast Chicken
  • Charlie Chimp / Stuntboy: Lightly Salted
  • Mummy: Cheese & Onion….

So clearly, something for everyone.

So when you are next sauntering through the jungle, minding your own business, and trying to keep yourself away from those cheeky purple chimps swinging through the trees, or perhaps when you are next near your local shop, you might want to pick up your own bags of Mighty Lights ready for the start of term!

If you do, what did YOU think of them? With you be giving them to YOUR cheeky purple monkeys?

We received three multi-packs and were also paid for this review. However, all the opinions, and animals are our own. No cheeky chimps (or crocs) were harmed in the making of this video, unless you include sticking your hand up the purple monkey and green croc puppet’s bottoms. Which we don’t. Enjoy your crisps :-D
