New savoury snacks for your office

Crisps are irreplaceable (popcorn: you had a good crack at it. Well done.) Think of these new savoury snacks as posh crisp siblings.


Coconut curls

Shards of fragrant coconut with “no funny business”, a reference to their basic ingredients. There are two flavours: lightly salted and slightly peppered. Don’t be deceived by the package photo – the crisps are tiny, hence the corner opening so you can pour them into your mouth at speed. Vegan. Ape Coconut Curls, 79p, Ocado


Rice sticks

This is a savoury snack with the texture of Chipsticks, flavours inspired by Japanese cooking and made in Wales. They are made with green peas and rice and come in four flavours: lightly salted, sweet chilli and lemon, soy and balsamic vinegar and smoked salt and Szechuan pepper, which is a bit like fancy BBQ sauce. Vegan. Yushoi Snapea Rice Sticks, £1, Tesco



From former M&S product developer Annabel Vere Nicoll and TV presenter Ben Fogle comes a new baked good. Chisps are made with chickpeas and spelt flour and packaged in compostable bags. There are two flavours: Hebridean sea salt seaweed and vinegar, and Indian-inspired sweet and spicy chickpea, a crisp version of bombay mix. Vegetarian. Launching 26 Jan. Dilly & Wolf Chisps, £1.69, Ocado


Pitta chips

Part of the new M&S ‘healthy snacking’ range, pitta chips are coated in chilli and red pepper seasoning, creating the perfect vehicle for hummus and guacamole. Note: there is nothing healthy about these when you eat three packets with a dip selection but you’ll be really happy. Red pepper pitta chips, 60p, in store at M&S
