Popchips have quickly become a popular snack for many people, offering a healthier alternative to traditional fried crisps. But are there cheaper supermarket versions that taste just as good? We put them to the test to find out.
The Original BBQ Popchips
The classic BBQ Popchips are a favorite among connoisseurs, with their sweet and spicy seasoning and satisfying crunch. However, they come at a price and the bag size may leave you wanting more.
TOTAL SCORE: 12/20
Aldi BBQ Pop Outs
Aldi is known for its excellent dupes of big name brands, so we were excited to try their version of Popchips. While the smoky scent put us off at first, one bite had us hooked. The larger size and affordable price make them a great option.
TOTAL SCORE: 18/20
Lidl BBQ Pop’d
Lidl's Pop'd chips offer a sweeter smell and a satisfyingly large size. However, the seasoning falls short, leaving them less flavorful compared to the other dupe options.
TOTAL SCORE: 16/20
Asda BBQ Popped
While Asda's Popped Chips offer a significant price reduction, the flavor is a bit off. The smoky and sweet taste doesn't quite measure up to the original, but they may be a cheap option if you enjoy the flavor.
TOTAL SCORE: 14/20
M&S Smokey BBQ Popped Potato Chips
M&S' dupe didn't fare well in our taste test. The bland flavor and artificial taste left us disappointed, especially considering the higher price compared to other options.
TOTAL SCORE: 7/20
Sainsbury’s Sea Salt Popped Potato Chips
Sainsbury's sea salt flavor was a decent substitute for ready salted crisps. However, the mild taste and chewy texture didn't quite satisfy our cravings. The higher price also made them less appealing.
TOTAL SCORE: 8/20
When it comes to Popchips dupes, Aldi's BBQ Pop Outs take the crown with their flavorful seasoning and affordable price. While other supermarket versions offer decent alternatives, they may not match up to the original or the top dupe.
