Snackrite crisps are Aldi’s own brand generic crisps, similar in style to Walkers Classic and Golden Wonder. They’re no frills, nothing fancy in the standard flavours you’d expect. What makes them popular is that they taste just as good as the competition but at a fraction of the cost in a lot of cases.
But, does cheap and cheerful mean they’re low in syns and calories? Let’s find out.
Aldi Snackrite Crisps Syn Values
Snackrite crisps only come in a multipack bag, which is 25g. They also come in ready salted, salt and vinegar, cheese and onion and prawn cocktail. All flavours are the same in terms of calories so you can use the below information no matter which you go for.
Snackrite 25g multipack contains 134 calories. This means that Snackrite crisps are worth 6.7 syns.
This is a low amount, but the bag is small. Similar to Sunbites, Wotsits, and Scampi Fries.
However, as we have mentioned in every syn value guide we’ve ever made, this number doesn’t tell the whole story. The whole story is if you compared all crisps with each other as if they all weighed the same (standardisation). What are the results? Read on to find out.
