I. love. Savoury. If I had to choose between a Bloody Mary toastie and a luxury cream filled eclair (although if it was between a cinnamon swirl, I’d really have to think) then it would be the toasted sandwich every, EVERY time. In the morning, I wake up after dreaming about bacon and at night, I crave cheese boards with piccalilli. So you get the picture?
Sitting at my desk, I often eat savoury bits and pieces throughout the day. When the BoroughBox office met Hoots – ‘the satisfying alternative’ to crisps, we all felt a sense of relief. A crisp like snack that passes the time, and passes on the saturated fats. Baked, not fried, full of seeds and a source of fibre – what’s not to like?
Can you tell us a little bit about why Hoots Snacks was founded?
Hoots Snacks has recently been re-launched to provide a snacking alternative to a packet of crisps. The aim was to offer a unique product to consumers that stands out from the crowd in terms of originality, traditional flavours and being baked as opposed to fried.
We love savoury snacking, and it’s always ideal and a relief when you find a snack that isn’t typically bad for you. Eating a well-balanced diet, and leading a healthy lifestyle, has really been on the up in recent times. What would you say makes Hoots Snacks unique?
In a time where consumers are making conscious decisions about their eating habits and seeking out satisfying alternatives, we are pleased to be able to offer a product that is 30% less fat than a traditional packet of crisps and contains no added preservatives, colours or flavourings. I think the key difference is that Hoots Snacks are a multigrain snack that’s baked, not fried, but there’s never a compromise on taste or quality. We are also proud to be able to offer our snacks to a wide range of consumers, as all products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans as well.
We love the variety in your savoury flavours, do you think any new ones will ever be developed?
Salt & Pepper, Salt & Vinegar, Cheese & Onion, Pickled Onion and Smoked Bacon are fairly traditional flavours we would say. Adding new flavours to the range is certainly in our minds for the year ahead. We won’t give too much away because it’s something we are still working on, but think Mediterranean and you might be on the right lines…. If any BoroughBox customers have any good suggestions on flavours they would like to see in the Hoots Snacks range then just drop us a message, we would love to hear of some weird and wonderful suggestions!
