New Find - Chika's Snacks | A Taste of West Africa

I have to admit that I love snacking, so I was quite delighted to discover a new brand - Chika's - which is a delicious snack range featuring vegan-friendly, GMO and gluten-free products. The brand was created by Chika Russell taking inspiration from her travels to West Africa.

According to the founder

The motivation behind starting Chika's was to take people on an adventure in taste, so that with each snack, each bite you are taken back to exotic Africa. Flavour is at the forefront of the brands journey as a team and as a business. Chika's aspiration was to use these snacks to create meaningful change in the communities from which the inspiration is drawn.

Chikas A Taste of West Africa

Chika's product range currently includes:
  • Smoked Almonds
  • Hand Toasted Peanuts (with and without the skin)
  • Hand Cooked Plantain (salted and chilli flavour)
  • Chickpea Crisp (spiced and chilli flavour)
  • Black Pepper Cashews

We sampled some of the products and liked them. The Smoked Almonds were scrumptious - a perfectly smoked flavour and the crunchy almonds made for a lovely taste sensation. They were not very salty which was another plus point. The Plantain crisps were tasty and again a beautiful blend of flavours. These would make a good alternative to potato crisps. The Black Pepper Cashews were my favourite - good quality cashews, perfect amount of pepper and overall beautifully seasoned. Loved it.

All the three products we sampled had an amazing flavour, were non-greasy and had a good percentage of protein per serving. The quality was good and the packaging beautiful. If you are looking for a taste of West African snacks, try Chika's.

The Chika's range is available to buy from and at Waitrose shops nationwide.
