Interested in trying our snacks?

We sell two varieties of healthy, vegan snacks: Full of Beans and Spice & Rice.

Harvest Delight includes salted corn, toasted pumkin seeds and soya broad beans. This snack tastes similar to ready salted crisps with an extra crunch.

Spice & Rice and contains smoked almonds, chilli rice bites and chilli coated peanuts. Spice & Rice tastes tangy, smoky and packs a small spicy punch. We have been told it goes great with a pint!

The snacks come in 40g packets and are £1.25 each. By buying our snacks you are supporting our micro social enterprise to enable our members to gain the skills for further employment within the community and to establish a more independent life.
