There is nothing I like more than sitting down in front of the television with a big bag of salt-and-vinegar potato chips, the sharper the vinegar, the better.
Potato chips are not the best for snacking, alas, but nuts are.
They are nutrition dense and a little goes a long way.
Marks & Spencer's Balsamic Cashews is a good find.
The vinegar is not as stinging as I like it to be, but balsamic is mellow to begin with.
A very small handful of nuts makes a satisfying snack without my wanting too much more.
On a side note, the nuts are supposedly "tumbled" with black pepper too, but that does not register on my palate in any meaningful way.
It is not a bad thing.
Overusing pepper is a crime against food.
Balsamic Cashews, $19.90 for a 320g tub from Marks & Spencer. For the list of stores, go to global.marks andspencer.com/sg
