Crazy Hot Popchips

Crazy Hot Popchips

Popchips Ridges Crazy Hot by @popchipsuk. ‘Popped not fried’ crisps that are lower in fat and calories than traditionally fried crisps/chips. Very heavily seasoned, neon orange crisps that have a wavy ridge to them that gives them high surface area. A creamy cheesy flavour comes through first, followed by sharp, tangy tomato.

Trinidad Scorpion Chilli Peanuts – Hot-Headz

The Garlic Farm Beef Biltong with Garlic & Chilli

The Garlic Farm Beef Biltong with Garlic & Chilli

If you’ve never tried biltong or jerky then I suggest you amend that right away, it’s usually a very healthy food to eat – full of protein and carb free (it is just sliced meat after all). Some biltongs and jerkies are full of sugar however, and not surprisingly these are always far too sweet tasting. The Garlic Farm on the Isle of Wight produce and sell a wide range of garlic based products, (I recently reviewed the Red Thai Curry paste) and I was eager to see if their product could stand-up against biltong from specialist biltong manufactures.

Mrs Renfro’s Habanero Salsa

Mrs Renfro’s Habanero Salsa

I'm not a salsa guy, mainly since I try not to buy crisps for consumption at home, but when I do actually get the chance to eat salsa, then forget the opening of this sentence. I was bought this salsa as a present from a local Whole Foods store, and I'm delighted I got to try it.

Snyder’s of Hanover Hot Buffalo Wing Pretzel Pieces

Snyder’s of Hanover Hot Buffalo Wing Pretzel Pieces

Artificially flavoured broken pretzel pieces, in a foil bag, seasoned with a slightly greasy coating. You could say that Hanover's premium snack sounds a little nasty, and you may be right, but goddamn do they taste good.

The Hot Buffalo Wing flavour have an almost glowing orange tint to each pretzel piece, and seem to […]
