Are you a sweet or a savoury person? Or, perhaps you’re like me – a
bit lot of both! I do love my chocolate and biscuits, but I’m also very partial to a crisp, especially with a sandwich. I even have preferred flavour combinations; ready salted with a chicken or ham sarnie, but salt and vinegar with cheese or tuna. I was offered the chance to try a new innovation in the crisp world (yes, there’s totally a crisp world!) and I couldn’t wait because, crisps!! Here’s more about Heat & Eat Crisps by Fairfields Farm Crisps!
Heat & Eat Crisps? What the what now?
So what even are Heat & Eat crisps? Well, perhaps unsurprisingly, they do exactly what they say on the… packet. Heat & Eat crisps are a genius idea from Fairfields Farm – a husband-and-wife team Robert and Laura, who farm spuds in East Anglia. They began making crisps in 2006 and have come up with successful products ever since, including the gross-sounding, but delicious-tasting Lentil Bites! And now, they’ve developed a bag of crisps that you can put in the microwave and heat (and eat!).
Heat & Eat crisps come in two flavours currently; sea salted, and cheese and chive. But that’s not all. Each bag comes with its own little pot of dip! Sea salted have a tomato salsa and the cheese and chive have caramelised onion dip (you don’t heat the dip!). They’re packaged in a special bag that you ‘unzip’ and pop in the microwave for 30 seconds (it’s totally safe, but make sure your plate turns properly!). When they come out, they’re deliciously warm!
Well, did I like them?
I never knew eating hot crisps could be such a pleasure. In fact, I’d never thought about eating hot crisps before I’d heard of Heat & Eat crisps. But, especially combined with the tasty dip, they are a delight! I’m
slightly ashamed to admit that I ate an entire large bag* to myself (in the interests of this review, you understand). *The large bag is intended for sharing – there are smaller, individual, non-greedy-person sized bags too!
The crisps are hand-cooked and gluten-free, and made with natural flavours and, another thing I like is that they’re made on the farm using renewable energy. But the main thing is, they’re so yummy! Perfect for a chilly evening, snuggled in front of the telly with your other half, Heat & Eat crisps are crisps, but with a bit more excitement!
You can find Heat & Eat crisps in a Tesco store near you, but, Robert and Laura have very kindly offered me a box, containing 3 large bags of Heat & Eat crisps to give away to one lucky reader! (I’m a bit jealous!) All you need to do is enter using the Gleam widget thingy below – full T&Cs are available on there.
Disclosure: I was sent some packets of crisps for the purpose of this review, but all opinions are my own.
