FQ3A0333We had a brilliant time at IFE last week – the international food and drink exhibition held at ExCel every other year.

Phil and Karen spent four days meeting lots of our wonderful existing customers and meeting new fans of Brown Bag Crisps. We are so proud to be in our seventh year of trading and delighted that the feedback about our crisps is so positive.

Our recently-launched veggie crisps proved very popular, with nothing but compliments about their taste, crunch and look – not to mention

the fab packaging! The combination of beetroot, carrot and parsnip went down a storm!

We are really looking forward to continuing to supply Brown Bag Crisps’ loyal customers and a huge welcome to all our lovely new customers!

We have a new member of the family!

veg-crispsWe are proud to announce the arrival of our amazing Veggie Crisps!

These delicious veggie crisps have less fat than other UK brands and the secret method of cooking them ensures the wholesome slices of beetroot, carrot and parsnip keep their size, shape and colour. A healthier snack with bags of natural flavour!

Not only are our new veggie crisps as delicious as their potato cousins, but they’re the healthiest vegetable crisp available in the UK.

Other vegetable crisps have almost 50% more calories and fat and 40% more salt than our delicious veggie crisps.

Like any proud parent, it’s hard not to boast, but we really think our veggie crisps are worth a try.

To request samples or to add veggie crisps to your next Brown Bag order, please email or call 01932 569359.

Brilliant recognition!

We are delighted to announce that Brown Bag Crisps has been voted one of the best snack brands by Fine Food Digest’s readers.

As a nation of snack lovers, the range of products on the market is huge, so we are particularly proud that so many retailers chose us as one of their favourites, especially considering how much bigger the other winning brands are.

Brown Bag Crisps are available in 40g and 150g bags and six flavours; Lightly Salted, Salt and Malt Vinegar, Oak Smoked Chilli, Mature Cheddar and Onion, Smoked Bacon and Tiger Prawn with a hint of Chilli and Lime (40g only).

The newest member of the Brown Bag Crisps family – Tiger prawn with a hint of chilli and lime

We were delighted to see mention of the newest member of the Brown Bag Crisps’ family in Speciality Food magazine this month.

The Tiger Prawn with a hint of chilli and lime crisps, launched earlier this year, are proving just as popular as our more traditional flavours. They’re currently only available on 40g bags but we will be launching the sharing bags soon!

Brown Bag Crisps’ stylish new look

Following the launch of our British potato crisps in 2010, Brown Bag Crisps’ award-winning seasonings and stylish bags – not to mention their ever-increasing popularity among people who care about good food – have seen them stocked in fine food outlets such as Harrods, Royal Windsor Farm Shop, Peyton & Byrne’s restaurants and cafes, Daylesford Organic, Rick Stein’s cafes and COOK stores.

These delicious crisps, now cooked in sunflower oil, have been given a stylish new look and are available in more flavours and in different sizes. This tasty range of crisps are now sold in small (40g) and sharing (150g) bags and are flavoured with the following seasonings: Lightly Salted; Oak Smoked Chilli; West Country Farmhouse Cheddar and Onion; Sea Salt and Malt Vinegar; Smoked Bacon.

Brown Bag Crisps are brought to you from Phil and Viv Lambe from their small family-run company in Surrey. Phil loves crisps so much that he set out to make the tastiest crisps possible, made using the best natural British seasonings. Brown Bag Crisps have taken many sleepless nights to perfect. It all started in the couple’s family kitchen, where Phil could be found until the small hours cooking and seasoning potato crisps until he found the perfect recipes.

They have now moved to a far more suitable setting but the Brown Bag ethos remains the same – to produce delicious hand cooked potato crisps where the taste and crunch are never compromised.

Phil, managing director, said: “We are so proud of Brown Bag Crisps and the fact they have such a great following from so many food lovers really is a dream come true. We are delighted with the new-look packaging and feel the British potatoes in combination with our carefully-made seasonings and sunflower oil make for fabulous potato crisps.

The new branding has been really well received and we are extremely excited to continue to see our crisps being sold by our many loyal retailers, in the wonderful outlets listed above and by the new customers we are yet to meet.”
