We were recently sent a selection of bite sized goodies from NibNibs to try. Made in Yorkshire, NibNibs contain locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. There is nothing I don’t recognise on the ingredients lists, instead they are full of delicious things like ‘wheat flour from Yorkshire mills’, ‘mature British cheddar’, ‘British butter’, ‘Yorkshire water’ and ‘sea salt’.
The MiniNibs Exceptional Cheddar Cheese Straws are possibly my favourite of the selection. I love cheese straws and these didn’t disappoint. Although crunchier than some of the warm freshly baked ones you’d find in a bakery, you can tell the ingredients are natural as they don’t have that artificial flavour you find in some processed cheese snacks.
The MiniNibs Exceptional Cheddar & Cheeky Onion Straws are very similar in taste and texture to the standard cheese ones, but with an added hint of onion. It’s not too overpowering, which I like, as usually I’m not a fan of ‘cheese and onion’ products. However, I did enjoy these and would happily eat them again.
The MiniNibs Exceptional Cheddar & Spicy Chilli Straws didn’t appeal to me as I’m not a fan of spicy food. Neither are the kids, but SO Dad loved them! I did try a few and there is just a hint of warmth, the chilli is not very strong at all. I probably would have tried a few more but they all disappeared rather quickly…
The MiniNibs Roasted Salt & Pepper Jumbo Peanuts were delicious! They were very well seasoned but again, the flavour was not too strong. I would definitely buy these again, not as an everyday snack but probably around Christmas time for a little treat.
Overall, we really enjoyed the NibNibs snacks. As fussy eaters, our children liked the standard cheese straws but weren’t keen on the other flavours. I’d love to see a few more products in the range with flavours they would like, as onion and chilli don’t appeal to them. I think the snacks would all be perfect for parties or for sharing on evenings in instead of crisps/popcorn. The packaging of the MiniNibs is visually appealing and I can see us keeping the handy little pots for craft activities! One thing I really liked was that the pots were filled up to the top – unlike some other snacks where the packets are half full (Yay to more food and less wasted packaging!)
