Snap-peas!

To hand, I have a packet of Dukes Food Crunchy Munchy Pea Chips. When I first laid eyes on them, they just appeared to be simple chips... maybe corn chips or potato... then my eye lit upon their surface, to discover... texture!

So, a little exploration later (ie, reading the ingredient list) reveals:

Yellow Split Peas, Gluten, Corn Flour, Rice Flour, Vegetable Oil, Green Split Peas, Salt, Flavours, MSG, Spices, Mineral Salt.

Very tasty stuff (especially the Chili variant!), & that variety of flours means a variety of nutrition — nothing fantasic, but it's evidently an order of magnitude better than straight chips, besides being more interesting & flavourful.

These nutritional necessities (whoo, instant promotion) are available from an Asian food supermarket (which has all manner of other interesting items scattered around the shelves) in behind the ANZ bank in Joondalup CBD, named “OK”.

The Pea Chips in particular appear to be made in WA, particularly in Industry Street, Malaga. Ah! The wonders of modern technology... (-:
