REVIEW - Emily Fruit Crisps

Emily Fruit Crisps

First things first, this is going to be a picture-heavy post, but for that I make no apologies because LOOK AT THAT PACKAGING.

I first heard about Emily Fruit Crisps when I spotted a sponsored post for them on Facebook. Initially intrigued by the excellent name, a little digging discovered that these are 100% natural, vegan-friendly and gluten free, but, they were nowhere to be found in the North East.

Fortunately, Emily tweeted me to say they'd just started stocking their yummy fruit crisps in Fenwick Newcastle, so off I went to hunt them down.

Emily Fruit Crisps Crunchy Apple

The crisps are available in three different flavours; pineapple, apple and banana. These were retailing at £1.85 for a 30g bag in Fenwick, but you can also get them online here for £1.99 per pack if you don't live near a stockist.

The story behind the brand is equally as charming as their packaging, one of the co-founders, Alex, named them after his girlfriend so he could see her name wherever he went. Aww.


As you can see from the ingredients list above, these are literally just fruit and a little oil. According to the website they're made in a vacuum which preserves all of the goodness of the fruit whilst making them deliciously crunchy.

Emily Fruit Crisps Crunchy Apple

First up, the apple ones. I liked that as soon as I opened the packaging I could see the apple's pips and skin - a reminder that these are real fruit which hasn't been tampered with too much!

These were nothing at all like I'd expected them to be! Even though they're called 'crisps' I expected them to have a bit of chewiness to them but they don't at all - they are super crunchy and absolutely delicious! The apple crisps don't have an overpoweringly 'apple' flavour - the best way I can describe them is like a crunchy caramelised apple. Divine.

Emily Fruit Crisps Crunchy Pineapple

Next up - pineapple. I think these were my favourite of the three flavours. Again, deliciously crunchy and tropical with a hint of caramel. Totally moreish, these definitely satisfied my sweet tooth and the whole bag is only just over 100 calories.

Last up were the banana chips. We've all tried those dried banana coins you get in a supermarket cereal, these are the total opposite of those. The most flavourful of the three varieties, you can taste how ripe these bananas were when they were selected - that perfect, speckled brown when the banana is at its most nutritious (and delicious).

Crunchy, sweet and packed with flavour - these were Andrew's favourite (I had to confiscate the bag).

I will definitely be picking some more of these up. Forget any dried fruit you've ever tried before and give them a go, they're the perfect, delicious yet healthy snack to pop in your handbag or munch in the office.
