Voakes

 

Simply 7 Lentil Crisps Sea Salt Flavoured

'Great ingredients – lovely texture and clean flavour. Light and crispy – nice plain ingredients, very smooth – I love them! Lovely flavour, crispy and high in protein. Fab crisps!!'

 

Highly Commended

Coco Indulgence Mango & Banana

'Very nicely balanced flavour – none of the ingredients overpower. Thick and smooth but refreshing – lovely idea.'

Voakes Free From Sausage Roll
