Mission Multigrain Tortilla Chips
Mission’s Multigrain Tortilla Chips has reduced fat and sugar content without compromising on its taste.

Don’t let its appearance fool you! Tesco Salt & Vinegar Rice Cakes is not your usual rice cake.

Greenday Mixed Veggie Chips
Made from 100% natural vegetables with no added preservatives, Greenday Mixed Veggie Chips are great for those of you who are really health-conscious. These chips look and taste exactly like the vegetables, only crispier. However, if you look for flavour in your snacks, this may not be the one for you. Another downside is that shoppers may find these veggie chips to be slightly expensive given that the quantity is pretty small.

SunRice Brown Rice Chips Wild Rice
Definitely not what you would expect! Made with whole grain brown rice with no added preservatives or artificial flavouring, SunRice Brown Rice Chips are absolutely delicious. It looks and tastes almost like a tortilla chip, that is delicious eaten on its own or with a dip.

Greenday Mixed Fruit Chips
If you love baked fruits, you would love Greenday Mixed Fruit Chips! Made from 100% natural fruits, it has 5 different fruits inside that are naturally sweet and flavourful. But there were mixed views on its texture – while some loved its crunchiness, others found it too hard. And, again, these chips fall under the pricier range.
- Average rating = 6.75/10

Surf Sweets Sour Worms
This was the least popular among the 10 snacks. It has a firmer consistency and is not as chewy as regular gummies that most are used to. Ironically, many felt that there was a weird artificial aftertaste, even though it is vegan and made with organic ingredients. But don’t just take our word for it, as everyone has their own unique taste and preference.
- Average rating = 2.1/10
- Price: $2.87
Good Health Veggie Stix
We were slightly disappointed by our last brand. We expected a stronger flavour from Good Health Veggie Stix, especially with its oh-so-appetizing packaging stating it is Sea Salt flavoured. But, beyond that initial disappointment, it has the kind of crunch you normally get from prawn crackers and the satisfaction from crunching on these Veggie Stix will definitely make you reach for more.
