Grain Waves 7 Grains & Seeds

The original regular flavours of Grain Waves were very nice, and very addictive... it is a shame that they came out with two new flavours (with their new "7 Grains & Seeds" format) that are such a disappointment.

Creamy Herb & Garlic
Very herby... Can taste the garlic, but the parsley flavour is stronger (if it has parsley in it). The problem with food packaging these days is that they don't seem to be required to detail all of the ingredients.  This one has "Herbs", "Spices", and "Natural Flavours" listed... what are they, and how do you know if it is something you could be allergic to?
This one tastes like tabouli and garlic sauce. What it needs is a bit of a meat flavour and you'd have kebab flavoured chips (which would have been very nice).
Otherwise, a bit too strong without the "meat". 2/5

Chilli & Lime
Lime is the dominant flavour on this one.  It hits you from the moment you put them in your mouth and start chewing. It isn't until you start swallowing that the bite of chilli hits... and then it lingers for some time after you swallow.  It almost makes you want to eat another mouthfull to have the lime of more chips over-power the chilli.  But then, you have to run out eventually... and the chilli burn for minutes after you finish is a bit annoying.
2/5 while eating
1/5 after eating
Oh wait, I just ate the flavour/crumbs at the end... definitely 1/5
