Working from home, I find it difficult not to want to snack while I'm sat in front of the computer. I've never really been one for crisps, but recently I've been reaching for them and enjoying every mouthful. My thighs however are not so forgiving ;)
BUT, I think I may have found a 100% natural, fat, gluten and dairy free option that will fulfil my craving for that tasty crunch!
Nim's Crisps are healthy, delicious, authentic snacks created in the UK using only fruit and vegetables. They are air dried, not fried, with nothing added to it.
The fruit and vegetables are sliced up in their entirety, skin and pips and all. And air dried, keeping all the goodness within, to create a snack full of fibre, vitamins and minerals. A great way to ensure you're getting your 5 a day, whilst still fulfilling the need for a snack.
We were sent the full range of the fruit and vegetable combinations to try.
The current range include:
Melon & Orange
Pineapple & Kiwi
Tomato & Cucumber
Beetroot & Parsnip
Peppers & Courgettes
We tried them all over the weekend. Our favourites were definitely the fruit ones particularly the Apple Crisps and Pear Crisps. These would make great snacks for our toddler, he loves them.
We weren't fans of the Vegetable versions, as we preferred the ones that tasted a little 'sweeter'.
I really enjoyed the kiwi crisps, and I love the look of them, complete with seeds and skin!
They make great healthy snacks for picnics, days out, movie nights or simply a quick snack when you're peckish.
The crisps are available to purchase online at £1.25 a packet.
They are also hoping to launch their Nim's Kid's range very soon - 'a range of Nim’s Fruit & Veg crisps especially for children with portion sizes and packaging specially designed with kids in mind'.
In order to bring this range to life, they need pledges on their Tesco Backit crowdfunder campaign to raise funds to finalise the product, the packaging design and bring the product to market. They're super passionate about combatting unhealthy snacking habits in children, so are really hoping this will happen. If you can, head over to the page and make a pledge. There are some fantastic rewards for pledgers too!
The final fruit & veg varieties for Nim’s Kids haven’t yet been decided, what kind of flavours would you and your kids love to see?
