Super Healthy Air dried crisps! ❤️😋

November 23, 2016

As the weather gets even colder I find my cravings for unhealthier foods increases. 

Lately I have been wanting to eat crisps. 

To conveniently open the packet and just munch away. But have you noticed just how much fatty oil goes into producing your average packet of crisps? Well it’s a lot!

So I looked further and discovered vegetable crisps, which are also fried but are slightly healthier because they are either made from kale or beetroot.

Until I came across this ingenious company called Nim’s who have created crisps which have been air dried so are super healthy!

The Product –


In 2012 Nimisha Raja pioneered the concept of air-dried fruit crisps, launching the first product to the UK market with her innovative brand Nim’s Fruit Crisps. As an entrepreneurial café owner and mum, she was frustrated with the lack of a genuinely healthy and tasty snacking alternatives and set out to create a product that not only she would enjoy, but her daughter would too.

She discovered that both children and adults enjoyed the texture of crisps as much as the flavour but was shocked by the lack of healthier options on the market. Nimisha developed her products first sourcing exceptional quality fruit and then perfecting the process of air-drying them for crispness and sweetness of flavour. Tapping into the demand for genuinely healthy lunchboxes and on-the-go and after school snacks which don’t compromise on taste, her crisps quickly grew in popularity, breathing new life into stale and stagnant snack aisles.

Nim’s is a unique range made from only the freshest produce with no additives or preservatives of any kind. With a unique air-drying process, Nim’s offers a healthy, tasty alternative to many of the fried, vacuum dried and baked bagged snacks on the market – the perfect healthy snack for those with busy lifestyles.

Every bag of thinly sliced fruit, which includes the skin, core and pips is high in fibre and vitamin C, as well as being fat and gluten free. This wholesome and natural product counts as one of your five a day and is less than 75 calories, making it the perfect snack for everyone, including vegans, vegetarians and coeliacs!

Nim’s are found in many independent stores, health shops, cafes and farm shops across the UK.


Fantastic flavours available are –

  • Pineapple & Kiwi
  • Pineapple
  • Apple
  • Pear
  • Pepper & Courgettes
  • Tomato & Cucumber

Verdict –

I absolutely loved Nim’s crisps! For me they are the ultimate feel good food without any guilt whatsoever! I have always found it difficult to find super healthy foods to snack on, as I am a major snacker, but these are definitely my current favourite.

For my boys who adore crisps and who can be quite adventurous when it comes to food, they enjoyed the fruity crisps as they have always loved dried fruits anyway. With the vegetable crisps I got them to dip the beetroot & parsnip crisps in their favourite houmous dip which made a yummy and super healthy after school snack!
