Split Pea Tubes – shame on me :(

Okay, I admit it, I love salt. And fat. But normally I can control myself. Not so with these new Split Pea Tubes:

I found them on the supermarket shelf about two weeks ago and thought I’d give them a try – after all, split peas are good for you, right? These are the ingredients shown on the back of the pack:

And this is what a single serve looks like:

That’s also how much I ate…just on the way home from the supermarket. The rest of the pack disappeared by the end of the second day. This many kilojoules in just two days, while I was trying to diet.:

Since then I haven’t dared buy the Split Pea Tubes again because, honestly, they’re the most delicious things I’ve eaten since the corn chip was first introduced to Australian consumers. The reason I’m publishing this blog post is that I hope it will provide the element of shame I’ll need when will-power wears thin.

My advice? Try one packet and then never buy them again. Seriously delicious. 😦
