Review and Giveaway: Ten Acre Crisps and Popcorn

Win a hamper of Ten Acre Crisps and Popcorn

Vegan cheese and onion crisps? Surely the stuff of myth and legend? But, no, they actually exist, thanks to Ten Acre Crisps. I’d heard about these crisps but never got the chance to try any as they’re not widely stocked in bricks and mortar shops. According to myth and legend though (okay, various vegan Facebook groups), they’d been spotted popping up now and again Loch Ness Monster stylee in TK Maxx but on a visit to my local store, I returned empty crisp-handed.

Ten Acre Crisps

Then, a couple of weeks ago, while checking out the Facebook page of a new local independent tea shop (The Little Teapot in Ashford, Kent), guess what I saw? YEAH MAN, THEY SOLD TEN ACRE CHEESE AND ONION CRISPS. HALLELUJAH, PRAISE THE GODS OF CHEESE AND ONION CRISPS. The next day, I cycled into town and saw The Little Teapot wasn’t lying, they did indeed sell Ten Acre Crisps. They also sold Ten Acre Popcorn but I wasn’t interested in the popcorn – my sights were firmly set on the cheese and onion crisps. I took a packet of cheese and onion and also a packet of pastrami flavour up to the counter and, like a complete saddo, told the man behind the counter how excited I was to see the crisps and that I’d been dying to try them for roughly forever. He proudly told me his cafe was the only place in Kent that sold them but I must have looked like I didn’t believe him, as he then said ‘and that’s a fact’. Still, fact or not, I took my crisps (and hot chocolate) to the table and gave them a try.

They weren’t anything like I’d expected.

I’d expected a thin, splintery, Walkers-style crisp with a bit of flavour probably leaning more on the oniony than cheesy side but I was wrong. These are quality, thick, crunchy crisps – think cheese and onion Kettle Chips, if Kettle Chips made cheese and onion flavour crisps. Oh yes, these are a proper premium, hand cooked crisp that any cheese and onion crisp lover would be happy to eat, vegan or otherwise. I loved them so much, before I left the cafe, I bought another packet to take home with me.

Despite me banging on about the cheese and onion flavour for the previous 375 words, there are lots of other flavours in the Ten Acre range of crisps and popcorn – 17 in fact (at the time of writing), all with quirky names:

  1. These look great and such exciting flavours. I have cut down on my snacking but when I do treat myself I like to make sure it’s the good stuff, would love to win!

  2. I love these but can’t find them very often. The cheese and onion are amazing (especially as I’m vegan and don’t get to eat cheese and onion crisps anymore!)

  3. Ooh I haven’t tried these! I love that the market for vegan food is expanding so much! It’s just so easy nowadays.

  4. Would really love to win! I love 10 Acre Crisps and my favourite flavour is – The Amazing Adventures of Salt and Vinegar. I haven’t tried the popcorn yet but I would love to try Captain Theodore’s Lime and Sea Salt flavour!

  5. I’ve never tried Ten Acre Crisps and Popcorn before such unusual flavours I would love to try the Cousin Penelope’s Strawberry and Cream popcorn 🙂

  6. I have read lots of great reviews for Ten Acre Crisps and Popcorn so would love to try some for myself! Thank you for the giveaway!

  7. Great prize, as we do like to have picnics etc. Snacks for playtime at school, afternoons with friends watching DVDs etc. A nice treat, that will keep us all satisfied till mealtime.

  8. I keep on trying to reduce my gluten intake and fail spectacularly each time. These look delicious and I wish more brands would follow suit.

  9. Look really delicious and the quirky names will be a hit with the kids. A very useful picnic hamper thrown in as well!

  10. These look delicious – I love the unusual names too! Cousin Maisie’s fennel and lemon sounds most interesting!

  11. These look amazing! They’ve done really well at coming up with new flavours as well as exciting interpretations of traditional ones.

  12. After 25+ years together there’s not much more I could do to get my crisp-mad better half to love me more – but a hamper of Ten Acre goodies would certainly get me lots of brownie points, as such! I so rarely get to treat him and this would be a great way to say thank you for caring for me all these years. Fingers crossed

  13. Love a good picnic and haven’t tried these before, so will be keeping my eye out as perhaps there’ll be a bit more decent weather before the rain sets in!!

  14. Love a good picnic and haven’t tried these before, so will be keeping my eye out as perhaps there’ll be a bit more decent weather before the rain sets in!! thanks for the comp

  15. I’m a big fan of Ten Acre crisps, their cheese and onion in particular is great, but there’s quite a few of the popcorn flavours I’ve never seen before. I’d love to given them a try!

  16. Never tried these crisps before but heard of them, Flavours sound amazing especially When Hickory Got BBQ’d! Fingers crossed 😀

  17. Love Ten Acre crisps, especially the cheese and onion 🙂 I’ve not had the popcorn before though – I do prefer savoury to sweet actually, but Wasabi?? Now that does sound interesting!

  18. Seen this brand online lots recently but not seen it in any shops yet. I’m a big fan of salt and vinegar Crisps so I’d defo like to try those. Also really interested in the lime and salt popcorn flavour

  19. I’ve tried the popcorn 🙂 But haven’t seen the crisps. I’d most like to try When Hickory Got BBQ’d.

  20. I would love to try these, but so would my two student children . I wonder who would get them? Hoefully enough to share

  21. Mmm they sell them in my local cafe – when the chilli gets sweet is amazing! For some reason most companies feel the need to add milk to sweet chilli crisps which is very saddening for us Vegans! Fingers (and toes) are crossed..!

  22. I’m a big fan of thick hand cooked crisps and I want to try the “When the Pepper Crack’d” flavour. You can get peppery crisps almost everywhere abroad but they are hard to find in this country.

  23. Very interesting flavours for vegan crisps, would love to try them and share them with vegan members of my family.

  24. I love the quirky names and the flavours sound fantastic – this would be a welcome addition to my ‘Christmas cupboard’!

  25. Woohoo, I really want to try these crisps now. I’d never heard of them until I read this. Vegan pastrami sounds very strange, but well worth trying.But you didn’t say what the hot chocolate was like in The Little Teapot???

  26. WOW those flavours are just so amazingly bonkers! My daughter went vegetarian in June and is bordering on Vegan at the moment. It’s her birthday in November and this would be a lovely treat for her.

  27. These all sound delicious, I love all the fun names such as- The Story of When Cheese Met the Onion. Thanks for this lovely giveaway.

  43. I must look out for these for the Christmas hampers I put together for my family. My sister-in-law needs foods that tick all these boxes!

  44. Mmm, the favours sound delicious. We fight over crisps in our house. I’m a big fan of savour popcorn but the rest of the family like sweet so I usually get a bag to myself.

  45. I love all crisps but cheese and onion are my favourite,I dont usually get chance with the Grandchildren picking first though
