Two words guaranteed to get me salivating (apart from the very obvious James McAvoy, Hello!) are the words kale and crisp. Now, James McAvoy covered in kale crisps? Well, I can hardly be held responsible for my actions. (Note to self: I’m married.)
So imagine my delight at discovering a brand new, ready to buy, ready to scoff, delicious packaged kale crisp by the lovely people at Happy. How cool a name is Happy? If I had a company I’d totally call it that. Or Whirligig. Yeah, that is a cool word.
The kale crisps come in two flavours: Carab & Coconut and BBQ.
Now, I’m not much of a fan of carob, unless I’m in the Algarve scoffing a particularly large wedge of carob cake, which is a local delicacy. But these didn’t have an overly powerful caroby flavour, in fact they tasted very chocolatey to me, kind of like crispy cakes. Really, really tasty!
The BBQ flavour was nice, packing more of a BBQ punch after a good couple of chews.
The good thing about these is that you have a sweet and a savoury option to choose from. They’re also handier to eat than some other kale crisps as they’re in a packet rather than a tub.
The crisps come in at £1.49 for 25g, which goes VERY quickly. These are handy as a wee snack but I could eat about ten.
You can buy from Red 23, Planet Organic, Wholefoods and As Nature Intended (London) with more stockists coming soon!
