Nim’s Fruit Crisps was born in 2010 from the inspiration of entrepreneurial cafe owner, Nimisha Raja. Nimisha’s cafe sat opposite a school and was popular with children wanting to buy the usual treats – chocolates, crisps, biscuits. As a conscientious mother herself, she started to investigate the reasons why kids tend to follow the same pattern on unhealthy snacking. She soon realised that while chocolate satisfies their sugar cravings, they want crisps as much for the texture and crunchiness as for the taste. What hit home was the clear absence of healthy, tasty snacks available that children wanted to eat! So, the search began and uniting the right flavours and textures in a healthy form soon became the birth and backbone of Nim’s Fruit Crisps. Nimisha developed a product crafted on the perfect balance between sweetness and texture, and improved the flavour by combining two types of fruit in each packet. In short, she Re-Invented what it means to eat fruit for children and adults alike!Now, various flavours of Nim’s Fruit Crisps can be regularly found in school bags, backpacks, handbags and food cupboards across London, as well as many independent stores, Planet Organic, food fairs, Farmers’ Markets and in several schools. They are also being shipped around the world!

Gill Awarded The Nim’s Fruit Crisps 4.3/5
The packets look really lovely and modern and made me want to eat the contents. Look quite expensive. The Mango and Pineapple flavours were quite nice and sweet. Pear and Kiwi, quite liked the Kiwi with the pear was a bit tart. Didn’t like the apple at all. As they are simply dried fruit the nutritional benefits are quite high. The packaging was really lovely. Looked like a high end quality. The colour coding was quite simple. They’re really convenient. Just the same as having a bag of crisps but much healthier. Harrison didn’t like them at all; however he’s not a great fruit lover at the best of times. Rosemary liked the sweeter ones but Annabel liked pretty much all of them. My other half thought they were nice apart from the pear, which he thought was a bit tart. I didn’t mind the flavours but don’t think I could eat a whole packet of them. Harrison and Rosemary didn’tlike them enough, however although Annabel liked them, I don’t think she would have managed a whole packet. They are a high quality product. Even though I wasn’t particularly fond of them I can appreciate them for what they are. They’re quite pricey for a single packet, however if it encouraged your child to eat something healthier that would be worth it. The pack may last two goes for smaller children as well. It’s difficult to say whether the taste could be improved as the crisps are basically just dried fruit and if the fruit is tart, short of adding sugar there’s not a lot you could do with it. I wouldn’t buy it as a regular purchase however my other half would probably buy the odd packet here and there. I would recommend this to anyone who really liked fruit products and wanted something new or to someone who is desperately trying to get some fruit into their child.

I reallyliked the look of these crisps when they first arrived. The packaging was lovely and you could see all of the nutritional benefits on each individual pack. Unfortunately I was not keen on the apple ones. The pear and Kiwi ones and the pineapple and kiwi were ok though. The flavours were intense and you could taste the sweetness in them. The apple ones were quite hard in the centre where the core had been cut out. The nutritional benefits are really good as the pack states that they are 100% natural fruit with no added sweeteners. As mentioned above the packaging was lovely. They were colourful with all the information needed. They are a convenient snack to have and a lot more healthy and beneficial than a packet of crisps. I didn’t really enjoy them as much as I had hoped I would. I love crisps and these would have been a perfect alternativefor me but they were just too hard and chewy for me. The flavour is there but for me, I didn’t like the texture of them. My dad on the other hand, loves them. I would not use these to replace our normal snack items. The overall quality is great,nice packaging with a good healthy snack inside.They are reasonably priced., the taste is perfect. I think the apple ones need to be cut different as the centre is quite hard. I have recommended these to my dad as I know this is something that he would go for. He has tried them, and he really likes them. I didn’t like the texture of them but that is my personal taste, plus I am not one to go for dried fruit anyway. The taste is there on all of them and would be a great snack for people who do like this type of thing. KerryBaldwin – Courtney 9 and Cameron 7 years

I was lookingforward to trying them. The taste was strong and some of them slightly bitter. Apple was our least favourite. These are really dried fruit so very healthy snack for you. The taste of these is very strong and you can really taste all the different fruits. These are natural fruit crisps for very good for you and nutritional value is high. The packet design was colourfuland very appealing. Crisps are always convenient as come in compact packet and can take out with you on your travels. Unfortunately as a family we did not really like the taste of these fruit crisps, but that is a personal opinion, they were just not for us. As we did not like thetaste we would not replace our normal snack foods. The price is competitive for a nutritional fruit crisp. High quality and if you are looking for something healthy and different worth a try. I was really lookingforward to trying these but just did not enjoy them, which is a personal opinion. Sharon Booth
