‘Wonky’ fruit and veg transformed into 'healthy' crisps

29/01/2019 - 06:00
Healthy snack brand Spare Snacks, which uses wonky fruit and veg to create “fresh, tasty” produce, has expanded its ‘Seasoned’ crisps range with the launch of three new flavours.

Building on the success of existing flavours, new variants include: pear and ginger; apple and cinnamon; and beetroot and apple cider vinegar.

Made exclusively from fruit and veg that is going spare (wonky, misshapen or surplus produce), the crisps are air-dried rather than fried and cost consumers 77 calories per bag. They are also vegan, gluten free and a source of fibre.

Since day one we’ve been all about creating the highest quality snacks that make people smile, using what we have, not wasting a thing and thinking responsibly about health and our impact.

Founder Ben Whitehead said: “Spare Snacks is on the side of the people. We’re helping farmers, consumers and the environment - taking the time to do things in a better way.

“We call things as they are and help snackers to make better decisions without compromise.

“Our new range is aimed to appeal to a broader cross section of healthy foodies who believe in our mission to waste not, want lots.”

The company said it is “on a mission” to spread the word that oddly shaped, discoloured or blemished produce has “real value.”
