Lockdown Snacks With The British Snack Co*

AD - This post is in collaboration with The British Snack Co but all opinions are my own
Life has definitely changed dramatically for us all over the last few months and whilst we're hopefully seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now, things aren't quite back to normal yet. Whilst we've been in lockdown I've had up and down days as I'm sure most of us have. Some weeks I've felt absolutely fine and I've been embracing this extra time with my family and other times I've felt very low and just wanted my life back. I've been trying to find the positives where I can and I'll admit recently I may have treated myself to a few new things just to have something to look forward to (see the amazing brownies we ordered in my recent favourites!). Food is the one thing I've really looked forward to each day, whether that be getting fresh pastries for breakfast at the weekend, having a pizza night on a Saturday or as I just said, treating George and I to something special from small businesses. As food is one of the biggest joys at the moment, I was thrilled to receive a package from The British Snack Co, full of tasty crisps and popcorn to enjoy whilst at home.

Who are The British Snack Co?

The British Snack Co are a UK based company who launched in 2013 with a mission to create the tastiest snacks and years later, they're still doing that. They currently produce Awfully Posh which is a range of crispy pork crackling snacks in a variety of flavours, The British Crisp Co which are hand cooked crisps in 5 no-nonsense flavours and The British Popcorn Co which stock the hand-popped treat in exciting flavours you might not have tried before. With more than 5 million bags sold so far and a Great Taste Award too, they're the company to go to for your lockdown snacking needs! 

The British Crisp Co

So what did I think of The British Crisp Co? Well I am a crisp fiend so I was thoroughly excited to get stuck into these! I was sent 5 flavours to try - Sea Salt, Cheese & Onion, Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar, Sweet Chilli and Sea Salt & Black Pepper. You can't beat a classic so the first bag I tried was the Sea Salt and it didn't disappoint. The flavour was really strong and I loved the salty hit I got from every single crisp but it definitely wasn't overpowering. The thick cut of them too meant that they had that super crunch you want from a crisp. Each flavour is delicious and there's something for everyone but I think my favourite would have to be the cheese & onion! I also have to mention how much I love the packaging of these crisps. So unique and just like what you'd find in a pub!

The British Popcorn Co

Now onto the popcorn which at the beginning of lockdown became a staple snack for us! It often doesn't feel quite as indulgent as crisps or chocolate, not that there's anything wrong with indulging in those things and it's also the perfect treat for a movie night which is something we've been having lots of throughout lockdown. Hand-popped in Great Britain, these bags of popcorn are inspired by Britain's Great Animals, as you might be able to tell from the packaging. Love, love, love the funky packaging and bright colours. With only 63 calories per serving, they're a great snack for that mid afternoon slump or as I just said, a movie night, or just whenever you fancy really. I received all 4 flavours to try - Caramel & Espresso, Sea Salt, Sour Cream & Black Pepper and Sweet & Salty. I'm always a fan of just salty popcorn, it's my go to cinema snack so this is the flavour I've been going through the fastest! The flavour was a hit with me and incredibly moreish. Even little Bear is partial to a bit of popcorn so it has the thumbs up from him too. Whilst flavours like Caramel & Espresso are a little out there and not usually something I'd go for, the coffee flavour is subtle and worked perfectly with the sweet caramel. An added bonus of The British Popcorn Co is that these all are completely vegan and allergen free too!

George and I both really enjoyed trying out the huge range of snacks available from The British Snack Co and I know if I see them in stores, I'll be picking more up in the future. Whilst all of these products are usually available in stores like Fuller's and Waitrose, they are also available to purchase online which is important for them now than ever. If you're looking for tasty snacks to get you through the next few weeks or you just want to treat yourself to something different, then be sure to check out The British Snack Co website aswell as Amazon where all products are stocked.

I've not heard of this brand before, but everything sounds so good! Caramel and Espresso popcorn sounds so unusual. I'm not a big fan of coffee tastes, so I like that it's subtle!xx

These sound really yummy. I prefer crisps over popcorn but I definitely want to try both. I love the look of the packaging too.
