Emily Veg Crisps Are Creative, Tasty & Vegan!

Emily Veg Crisps Are Creative, Tasty & Vegan!

I keep saying I picked the best time to go vegan because there’s so many options out there right now! Recently, I’ve had an influx of really exciting blogger mail. I’ve also been trying out a ton of new bits myself too. The great thing about being vegan is there seems to always be something new to try. I’m really enjoying it!

At the moment, I’ve been trying out a bunch of vegan snacks. When I was vegetarian, I used to snack on a lot of cheese and Quorn bits. I guess when it comes to things like snacking, I always thought I’d struggle. It turns out there is quite a lot of options out there and Emily Veg Crisps are my latest discovery.

What are they?

Vegetable crisps are basically crisps that are prepared using vegetables. I find they’re often marketed as a healthier alternative to actual crisps, but we won’t dive too deep into that. They may be deep-fried, dried or baked. I’m a big fan of vegetable crisps (and vegetables in general), so I was thrilled when the lovely people at Emily Fruit Crisps reached out to me.

Emily Fruit Crisps? I thought you said they were veg crisps

The company themselves are called Emily Fruit Crisps, but have a veg range! Founded by couple Alex and Emily, the brand have a rather wholesome story. The pair were travelling in the Far East and found an alternative way of making crisps ‘in a vaccum that preserves all the good things in fruit while still being amazingly crunchy‘. Adorably, they decided to make their own and Alex decided to name them after Emily so he could ‘see her name wherever he went‘. Couple goals, amirite?

First of all, we need to talk about the packaging

We like to thing these sort of things don’t have an affect on us, but they really do. How many crap products have you ended up with just because the packaging dazzled you? I’m pleased to say this isn’t the case here though. The crisps came in an absolutely stunning floral box, you wouldn’t even know it contained crisps. The lady who delivered my post said three of my neighbours wanted it for themselves!

I think there is something quite nice about packaging that makes you excited to open it. Perhaps it’s the blogger in me, but I definitely apprecriate and notice these things more.

Not only are Emily Veg Crisps visually appealing, there’s a ton of other cool things about them too. None of their crisps contain any additives or preservatives. They’re gluten free, vegan friendly, as well as kosher and halal certified too. There’s no added sugar, and for those who care, they’re low in fat too.

Like I briefly mentioned above, crisps like these are normally marketed as a healthier alternative to crisps. Whilst this may be true, it’s not really a factor I pay attention to? I don’t really seek out healthier alternatives to stuff because I think you should be entitled to enjoy food. If you want to eat crisps, fine. If you’re looking for something different? Cool! Definitely check out products like this.

What do Emily Veg Crisps taste like?

I’m not actually a huge crisp lover anyway as it happens. If I was, I’d definitely eat them shame-free though! There’s a select few that I like, but since going vegan I haven’t had much. I guess I haven’t gotten round to seeing which are suitable. Anyways, these crisps are amazing! Some vegetable crisps can be quite bland or just okay, but Emily’s are seriously tasty.

Crunchy Sweet Potato, Carrot & Beetroot

In terms of vegetable crisps, carrot and beetroot are probably the veg I’ve seen the most. Sweet potato was a nice surprise though! I’m not that into beetroot on its own, but these three work together really well. I’ve found that some of these crisps can be a bit damp, but these are nice and crunchy! Iain said these were his favourite and definitely the best vegetable crisps he’s tried.

Sugar Snap Peas & Black Edamame

As a big fan of greens, I definitely preferred these ones. They have a really nice flavour that can only be described as a pleasant tang. I was pretty impressed by both packets, these crisps are bursting with flavour. I’ve always found these type of foods to be just okay. Whereas these are tasty enough for me to actually be like ‘wow, I love this’. Something to call home about!

I believe they cost around £1.19 – £1.49, a 4 pack costs £2.99. This is definitely a more higher end crisp. Unlike some brands out there, there is actually a decent amount in the packet!

You can find Emily’s Veg (and fruit!) Crisps at: Ocado, Wholefoods, Holland & Barrett, Selfridges & Co, Topshop and more.

    I don’t really pay attention to which products are labeled “vegan” very often, but I actually do like these kinds of crisps! I prefer the baked carrot, beetroot, or pea chips from other brands as well, but to me as long as they’re natural, they all taste the same 😉

    I’m a big fan of vegetable crisps, but I’ve never seen these before! The sugar snap peas ones definitely look interesting as they generally seem to be made with root vegetables!

    I love veggie crisps, I’ve spent a lot of time in Asia in the last couple of years and they’re always easy to come by.
