Us vegans are a funny breed aren’t we!? Munching on nuts and seeds and getting excited over kookie vegetables and organic pastes with the same gusto that a meat-eater would drool over a steak. Yet you don’t have to vegan or even vegetarian to enjoy a healthy snack as these Nothing But freeze dried nibbles prove so perfectly!
Made from real, honest fruit and vegetables these snacks contain no additives or preservatives, fat, sugar, salt or colourings and are never baked or fried. Each pack counts as one of your five a day and are suitable for vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diets in a range of six flavours; beetroot and parsnip, mange tout and red pepper, pea and sweetcorn, strawberry and banana, apple and fig and pineapple and grape which are made simply by removing the water to lock in all of the goodness.
The snacks are surprisingly moreish and have a wonderfully light texture without compromising on taste. The mange tout and red pepper are vibrant and richly green with a punch of borderline bitterness to the pepper, precisely what I’d have on my dinner plate but just as a snack this way. For something a little less intense the pea and sweetcorn are light little puffs of crisp, sweet and refreshing flavour similar to a rice cake but with more taste. And for the more amateur fruit and veg nibbler the apple and fig snacks are beautifully fruity, intensely apple-ish with a rich contrast of fig that leaves my mouth watering. A wonderful concept and great way to up your nutritional intake!
