The Perfect Lockdown Snack Idea

Hey Guys! Hope you are all well and staying safe. This post is all about the perfect snack to enjoy in the comfort of your own home, whilst we are still in lockdown. It’ll also feature a personal review and my thoughts on these snack ideas.

Now more than ever it’s key to focus on your mental health and trying to be happy, this can come in many forms. But I am sure you will all agree that having a yummy snack can help us feel better, just a couple of bites of yummyness! I was approached by the lovely people are The British Snack Co. They have two ranges; The British Popcorn Co and The British Crisp Co. I was kindly gifted some of their products to try and consequently write a review on them, which I couldn’t wait to do. I’d never actually heard of The British Snack Co before, have you?

The British Crisp Co

Firstly, I just want to say how amazing the packaging is – it’s got such a British aesthetic featuring different iconic British products. Such as Tower Bridge, the red telephone box, the navy and beaches. The crisps are handcooked within the UK using exclusively British potatoes, our crisps combine no-nonsense flavours with classic crunch. They are made on a farm that not only grows its own potatoes, but is powered by renewable energy. How amazing is that!

The British Crisp Co include the following classic flavours:

  • Sea Salt
  • Cheese and Onion
  • Sea Salt and Cider Vinegar
  • Sweet Chilli
  • Sea Salt and Black Pepper

I’m not sure about you, but I’m a very classic flavoured crisp person… why do companies make these wacky flavours which end up not really tasting like crisps. Having now tried all of the above flavours, all I can say is…. WOW each bag is full of flavour, and are very crunch and fresh. They taste amazing! So if I have to choose my favourite flavour was the Sweet Chilli, I’m a sucker for chilli crisps and these hit all the taste buds. The British Crisp Co crisps are now available to buy online.

The British Popcorn Co

Capturing the Americanised British snack, the popcorn. A cinema or at home movie night classic, well The British Popcorn Co has you covered. Hand-popped in the UK, and inspired by Britain’s Great Animals. With only 63 per a serving, therefore they can be a perfect guilt free treat. An added bonus is that the popcorn is completely vegan and allergen free.

The flavours include:

  • Caramel and Espresso
  • Sea Salt
  • Sour Cream and Black Pepper
  • Sweet and Salty

I don’t know about you but I love snacking on popcorn at the cinema, but I very rarely buy it to eat at home. Well I think this may change now that I have experienced the indulging flavours sold by The British Popcorn Co.  Having sampled all of the above flavours, I am in love with the Caramel and Espresso popcorn. This snack is super yummy, full of flavour and nice and sweet (which I love). I also really enjoyed the combination of sweet and savoury with the sweet and salty bag of popcorn! All the popcorns are super fluffy and taste very refresh, making them the perfect night in snack.

Available for delivery from online from Amazon.

Overall, I really enjoyed reviewing and sampling both The British Popcorn Co and The British Crisps Co. Both the popcorn and crisps are full of flavour and taste super fresh! I am definitely going to head to Amazon and purchase more to indulge on for a night in movie night.

If you’d like to try the full range of products…  I have a competition running over on my instagram page where you could win your own range of yummy The British Snack Co goodies! Ending Sunday 14th June 2020.

    They sound great! I don’t think I’ve ever seen these before but I love the packaging. And I totally agree that more simple crisp flavours are better – salt & pepper is my go-to x
