Who’s hungry for Awfully Posh Lomo Crisps? – review and giveaway

Disclosure.  This post is a review of products I was sent for free.  All opinions are my own.

With everything going on this year, some businesses are really struggling in these tough times. So with the future still very precarious in the hospitality industry, The British Snack Co. has had to change their focus from the pub to online sales. They produce three brands of snacks which you may have come across previously:- Awfully Posh, The British Crisp Co. and The British Popcorn Co.

I particularly enjoy snacking on something savoury, so I was pleased to receive a box of 5 packs of Awfully Posh Lomo Crisps free to review from The British Snack Co.

Awfully Posh Lomo Crisps

If you haven’t heard of Lomo, it is cured Spanish Pork Loin, which is one of my favourite cuts of pork. I’ve previously enjoyed it as Tapas, but haven’t come across it as a crisp before. These Awfully Posh Lomo Crisps have been air dried, not fried and made using 100% Spanish Pork, cured with a blend of paprika and garlic. And I can affirmatively say that yes they taste as delicious as they sound. Very moreish and definitely crisp and crunchy. Much better than your average crisp.

They are high protein and low carb comprising 63g protein, 0.5g carbohydrate, 23g fat and 6g salt per 100g. They are also gluten free. The packet size is 25g. They therefore work well with both the KETO diet and Atkins approach to meal plans. It is always a plus point in my opinion to have high protein products like this which do not need refrigerating.

Lomo is a new addition to the Awfully Posh range which also includes Pork Puffs, Pork Scratchings and Pork Crackling in a selection of flavours. However Lomo Crisps do seem significantly pricer than all the other products in the range, probably due to it using a premium cut of pork, namely the loin.

You may purchase them via their online store in boxes of 10 packets and they are also stocked in places like Fuller’s and Waitrose.

One thing I would like to see changed is the packaging. It has the dispose in litter symbol. Hopefully they are investigating alternative compostable or recyclable packaging.

For those of you hoping to try them in a pub after lockdown, here is son1 enjoying them whilst taking mask precautions.

If you don’t mind the price for a premium product, I highly recommend that you give them a try. Otherwise try some of the cheaper items in the range.

And I’m hosting a rafflecopter competition to giveaway a box of Awfully Posh Lomo Crisps courtesy of The British Snack Co. to one lucky winner. A yummy prize. But you’ll have to be quick as this one is open for less than week.

High Protein Snacks review & giveaway

My other half announced a few months ago that he wanted to eat less carbs. I’m now finding it quite challenging to come up with meal ideas for the whole family as the boys’ favourite meals are pizza and pasta, so carb loaded. And since they tend to turn their nose up at a large piece of meat or fish, I usually stick to cooking what they enjoy. So my poor other half ends up more often than not with a plate of carbs. And if he chooses not to eat it, there is unlikely to be an alternative prepared.

So I was pleased to receive a box of high protein snack packs, free to review from Top Herd Snacks.

Top Herd High Protein Snacks

I received 1 each of the following varieties.
Tangy Tomato Beef Jerky
Smoky BBQ Beef Jerky
Sweet Pickle Beef Jerky
Honey Mustard Pork Jerky
Zesty Lemon Turkey Jerky
Chilli & Lime Turkey Jerky
Tomato & Paprika Skinny Salami
Chilli Pepper Skinny Salami

Son2 as usual was very skeptical and refused to taste them, but the rest of us tried every variety and gave them a thumbs up all round. I liked all of them, but my favourite is the Honey Mustard Pork Jerky. I did find that the salamis are very chewy, but there is a warning on the packet stating that the snack is only suitable for strong teeth. Meanwhile son1 liked both the salamis best, whilst my other half opted for the same as me – the Honey Mustard Pork Jerky.

These snacks are all high in protein ranging from about 38g – 50g per 100g depending on the variety. They are also gluten free and made from 100% natural ingredients. Another big plus point is that they are long-life products which do not need to be refrigerated.

At present, these snacks are only available to purchase via the Top Herd website, but they plan to be in supermarkets later this year. They are sold in packs of 8, either 8 of the same type or a mixed flavour bundle, currently retailing at £15.92 which equates to £1.99 for each individual 35g packet of jerky or 40g packet of salami. I highly recommend that you give them a try. I’ve already placed my first order and can say that checkout was simple.
