I’m sure lots of you have tried one of the many ‘dried fruit’ products on the market right now. I’m frequently tempted by them – I sometimes grab some at the supermarket checkout as a panic purchase, thinking I’m being healthier than if I opted for a packet of crisps or some chocolate. But I’m always fairly disappointed and just wish I’d bought some actual fruit instead.
I recently came across a great (and rather beautifully designed) product that ticks all the boxes for those snack cravings – Emily Fruit Crisps. I was given some to try and was kind of expecting it to be another dried fruit product, but these really are crispy, like actual potato crisps, without being greasy! It’s quite a strange sensation as you bite into them, as they have the texture of crisps, but sweet, fruit flavours. There are three flavours available – Banana, Apple and Pineapple.
The company was set up by (you might have guessed!), a lady named Emily. She and her partner, Alex were travelling in the Far East and found a very clever way of making crisps in a vacuum that preserves all the good things in fruit while still being amazingly crunchy. And the rest, as they say, is history! The production method means that the crisps contain no preservatives, no additives, no added sugars, no e numbers and they are gluten-free too!
If you’d like to try them out, they’re available to buy at various shops/websites including Ocado and Whole Foods Market. You can find out more at the website here.
I was sent products for review purposes by Emily Fruit Crisps, but did not receive any payment. All views are my own.
