Snack company Vege Chips has extended its traditional range with the addition of a hot new flavour to its stable. 

The plant-based Chilli Vege Chips feature hints of paprika, jalapeno, shallot leaf and garlic, with no nasty additives.

Free from nuts, soy, eggs, petrochemicals, GM ingredients, artificial colours and preservatives, the Chilli range is also dairy-free and gluten-free, meaning people with allergies or intolerances can also enjoy them.

Vege Chips managing director Rob Crisfield said the release of its fiery new flavour follows the surge in demand for spicy snack foods.

“We recognise there was a gap in the market when it came to healthier snack alternatives that pack a chilli punch,” says Crisfield.

“The Chilli Vege Chips went through a flavour house and rigorous taste testing panel to perfect the final product – it’s definitely been developed for those who love a seriously tasty, spicy snack.

“The Vege Chip Company is more than just a snack business that creates healthier and innovative plant-based products, it’s also a way of life for us, not just a business." 

The Vege Chips Chilli 100g retail at $3.80 per pack and are now available nationally at Woolworths.
