October is in full swing and Halloween is almost upon us. The weather is turning colder and sometimes there’s nothing else for it but to sit yourself down on the sofa, snuggle up and enjoy some tasty treats.
Here are three of our favourite foodie products for this month that we’ve been snacking on. Crisps and juice ftw! Everything in moderation, yes?…
Made on the farm using only the highest quality home-grown potatoes, Jackpots Crisps (pictured above) are also processed and cooked in a purpose-built factory on the farm, and boast very low food miles.
Bursting with flavour, the range consists of five delicious varieties: Lightly Salted, Roast Beef and Horseradish, Mature English Cheddar and Spring Onion, Sweet Thai Chilli and Sea Salt and Cyder Vinegar.
These are tasty, full of flavour and our absolute favourite has to be the Roast Beef and Horseradish flavour as they have just the right amount of kick to them whilst not compromising on that delicious roast beef taste. Yummy with some crusty bread and cheese on a cold night in.
Jackpots Crisps are available through Tesco and Asda stores in the East of England and Costcutter. Jackpots Crisps will be on promotion at 2 bags for £2 in Tesco from the end of November until the beginning of January.
Fairfields Farm Crisps
Think you know what vegetable crisps taste like? Then think again! Because Fairfields Farm Crisps is set to change the vegetable crisp market forever.
Fairfields Farm Crisps’ two new vegetable crisps: Parsnip and also Sweet Potato with Chilli & Lime, boast chunky pieces of expertly hand-cooked vegetables, seasoned to perfection and impossible to resist. These two new snacks use all the skill that the firm has acquired in making its award-winning artisan crisps and breathe new life into the vegetable crisp market.
Parsnip Crisps and Sweet Potato with Chilli & Lime are a departure for the family-run business which grows all its own potatoes and makes all its own crisps in its purpose-built factory. “This is an exciting product development for us. Our vegetable crisps are packed in clear bags with cardboard sleeves so customers can see exactly what they’re getting and they won’t be disappointed when they tuck in” explains founder, Robert Strathern.
There isn’t a bad flavour in the whole range and these are seriously tasty crisps that you all need to try for yourselves! The flavours are absolutely delicious. Huge thumbs up from us.
The two new flavours are available in 40g bags with an RRP of £1.29 from delis and farm shops nationwide. They are also suitable for vegetarians.
British Carrot Juice
Most of us enjoy the sweet flavour of crunchy new season carrots, but how many of you have ever tried a glass of carrot juice? Give it a go this winter if you’re ready for a night off from the wine but still want to indulge yourself in something yummy.
Up until now carrot juice has lived in the shadows, but thanks to James White Drinks, this sweet and delicious juice is set to hit Tesco’s shelves this autumn, giving consumers a chance to try it for themselves.
Launching in August, the new British Carrot Juice is pressed at Whites Fruit Farm in Suffolk from carrots grown nearby in Cambridgeshire. With its striking orange colour and surprisingly sweet flavour, James White’s British Carrot Juice aims to further develop the popularity of the vegetable juice market, after their enormous success with Beet It organic beetroot juice.
British Carrot Juice will be available in 400 Tesco stores from August, as well as health food shops and other independent retail outlets. It will be available in 75cl bottles, RRP £1.99.
