I was really looking forward to trying these out as an alternative to crisps, especially during the school holidays when it can be tricky to keep finding healthy snacks day in, day out for three hungry children! We were sent Nim’s Fruit Crisps in ‘Perfect Pear’, ‘Amazing Apple’ and ‘Cool Courgette’ to try.
Nim’s Fruit Crisps are made by taking fresh fruit and vegetables, thinly slicing and then letting them air-dry. This process allows the product to stay crisp and crunchy, just like potato crisps! You can also see this when you take them out of the packet; they are very thin slices of apple, pear and courgette. There is nothing added to them, and nothing taken away so there is no salt, oil, preservatives, artificial flavours or any other nasties.
The crisps are light and the children enjoyed seeing the real fruit slices, we found that the courgette ones were crisper than the fruit ones and the flavours were a good balance, not too subtle, but not overwhelming either. These make a really good change from crisps for the children, it’s good to know they are completely natural, full of vitamins and fibre and only 50 calories a bag.
Nim’s Fruit Crisps also say that because they use full fruits, the are able to operate a zero waste policy which is really good news. There is also an adult range to try which includes Pear, Apple, Beetroot & Parsnip and Pineapple flavours. You can buy Nim’s Fruit Crisps online from Ocado and you can view the range on the Nim’s Fruits Crisps website.
