Sorry its been such an age since I blogged last, not going to make excuses, its just life basically!
Today I’m doing a quick review for you of a product that has recently become one of my favourites! So I’ve been really into fruit ‘crisps’ recently, after having tried the apple ones from both Marks and Spencer and the Giving Earth Mango ones (which I can do a separate review of if you’d like to see that?).
Anyway below is what the bag looks like, I really like the packaging, I think they look very eye-catching and quite upmarket which is nice. The bags are only 30g and (like normal crisps) you do get a lot of air in the bag but I think thats so they don’t all get crushed before you open them. The bag is convenient to take around with you but its a shame its not resealable because I think if you leave the bag open, thats when they would go soggy but I just put a clip on the bag to stop that (unless you eat the whole bag in one go, which is completely understandable, I just like to draw out my snacks haha).
Below is what the actual ‘crisps’ look like when you open the bag… definitely not what I was expecting but a nice surprise!
Tastewise, I didn’t think I would like these as much as I actually do because I’ve only recently started liking pineapple itself. However, these are really yummy! I wouldn’t say they taste extremely pineapple-y, its just a nice fruity sweetness at first and then later on, you can detect the pineapple.
They are really crunchy and crispy which is so nice and means they work really well if you just need a little sweet snack by itself or crumbled up over yoghurt almost like a granola kind of thing. The only criticism I have with these is that they have used palm oil , however I think thats what gives them the delicious crunch they have. On the packet it does say that its ‘RSPO-certified sustainable’ palm oil, although I still think palm oil isn’t the best health-wise but they clearly haven’t used that much because there is not that much fat in them, so I’m not too bothered. There are much much worse things you could snack on! They also count as one of your 5 a day which is good!
I’m looking forward to trying the other fruit and veg crisps from this brand. Here is their website so you can find where to buy them and any other info you might want http://www.emilyfruitcrisps.co.uk/#6

Have you tried these? What did you think? Any other similar snacks you think I should try or you would like me to review?
Thanks for reading!
