Staying in is the new going out, there’s no denying it. Whereas I used to live for Friday and Saturday nights, getting dressed up and heading out to throw some shapes and neck shots with my friends, these days a good night consists of getting cosy on the sofa and watching something decent on the TV.
Yes, I’m old. No, I don’t care.
As Ben and I are trying to get ourselves into a financial position to be able to buy a house in a few years, we have agreed to cut down on unnecessary spending (decision made after we had already booked our holidays for the year, obvs) and part of that cost-saving is to have more low cost date nights.
Previously, we’ve thought nothing of popping down our local pub for dinner and drinks, but this has been put on the back-burner for now, replaced instead with cooking dinner at home with some music on and a glass of wine in hand (or beer for him) before settling down to watch a film with some nibbles.
This weekend we tried out Fairfield Farm Crisp’s new Heat & Eat range, the first microwavable crisps available on the market – simply open the packet where shown, remove the dip inside, and pop into the microwave for 30 seconds – delicious, warm, dippable crisps that are absolutely bursting with flavour!
We were lucky enough to receive both flavours to try out and they got the thumbs up from us! Personally I preferred the Sea Salted flavour but that’s purely down to the fact that I don’t really like Cheese & Chive as a rule; Ben, however, loved them and wolfed them down without coming up for air! (The Sea Salted flavour comes with a tomato salsa dip whilst the Cheese & Chive comes with caramelised onion).
I actually genuinely am a big fan of Fairfield Crisps and often opt for their range if I’m in a shop looking or a little bit of a carb hit for my lunch break. I find their crisps are crunchier and fuller in flavour than a lot of their competititors, plus they don’t have that horrible greasiness you can sometimes find with other brands.
Extra points have to go to Fairfields as not only are they local with all the crisps coming from their family farm in Essex (always good to support local businesses!) but all their energy is also supplied via sustainable technologies like anaerobic digestion and solar power, meaning they’re saving the planet at the same time as making tasty snacks for us all – win win!
As well as hooking me up with some snacks for our at-home-low-cost date night, the lovely people at Fairfields Farm Crisps have also given me some to give away to one of you! Here’s your chance to win a box of Heat & Eat containing 3 packets of each flavour!
