Just in time for Halloween, Pom Bear have brought back their Limited Edition Pickled Onion flavour snack, featuring a special vampiric (but still very cute) Pom Bear on the packaging !
The snacks have kept their iconic teddy bear shape - I was wondering if they'd have gone ghost-shaped in honour of Halloween, but I suppose they just wouldn't be Pom Bear if they weren't bear-shaped - and have adopted a pickled onion flavour. Pickled onion flavour crisps instantly make me think of the Monster Munch ones that I used to eat in my youth, but the Pom Bear ones have a much less acidic, more subtle flavour.
I was very impressed to see that each 19g pack contains under a hundred calories : 96 calories, 0.4g of sugars, 5.1g of fat of which 0.5g saturates and 0.3g of salt. That makes them a pretty guilt-free snack for adults watching their waistline, as well as kids. They're also gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians.
The Halloween Pom Bears also have an on-pack promotion. A ghostly code will be hidden on the packs with opportunities for those who find and scan it to win a selection of great prizes, while also receiving hints and tips from the brand's Facebook page.
Speaking of prizes, I'll be back in a second with a fab Pom Bear Halloween giveaway right here on my blog too.
