Emily Fruit Crisps

This year has been quite a learning curve for me in terms of healthy eating. Over the past six months I’ve been discovering the wonders of kale crisps, raw chocolate and the million and one things you can do with a bowl of porridge. I’ve also been tracking everything I eat with My Fitness Pal, which has been quite the eye opener for me, to make sure I’m getting a balanced diet.

I’m always keen to discover new and interesting ways of getting the right nutrition into my body so when Emily of Emily Fruit Crisps got in touch asking if I would be interested in trying her products I jumped at the chance.

If you’ve ever bought banana chips from the supermarket or a health food store you’ll know that they’re pretty lacklustre in the taste department so it was a pleasant surprise to discover that the Emily banana crisps are bursting with flavour. They’re also incredibly satisfying to handle, like little golden banana coins. Is that weird? That’s probably weird. The apple crisps are just as good: crunchy and deliciously sweet.

I try and avoid eating too much fruit because of the high sugar content so these would be an occasional treat for me rather than something I’d have every day, but the packaging alone is enough to make me want to keep a stock in my cupboard.

You can buy Emily Fruit Crisps in Selfridges or you can order them online here.

  1. I’ve always hated the way banana chips taste like overripe bananas/artificial banana flavouring instead of fresh, slightly green and tart bananas. It’s good to hear of some that aren’t a huge disappointment!

  2. Never fear fruit! Also eat enough of it as you would like; the only sugar in fruit is good sugar and we should all get plenty of it.

    1. I’m kind of on the fence when it comes to fruit sugar. I love fruit and I know that it’s packed full of things I need to be getting into my diet like vitamins and fibre, but this lady has made me think twice about how much sugar I’m consuming, regardless of where it comes from.

      I don’t know enough to argue either way really, but cutting back on sugar (mostly refined/added) hasn’t been too much of a challenge for me so I don’t feel like I’m restricting myself.

      Also I really love food so believe me when I say that if I want it, I’ll eat it!

  3. The packaging is so gorgeous! I love My Fitness Pal, I admittedly don’t use it all the time, but when I decide it’s time to ease up on the chocolate and snacks it’s the first place I go.

  4. Beautiful pics! And thanks for the I quit sugar link in the comments – just disappeared down a rabbit hole for a while and ended up purchasing the book ;) Been meaning to tackle my sugar addictions for a while – thanks for the reminder!
