If you’re a secret, savoury snacker and like to have something to munch on in the mornings or enjoy in the evenings that doesn’t contain any cruelty- vegans- we have you covered!
Traidcraft, the UK’s leading fair trade organisation, has launched a brand-new flavour into its GEOSTICKS range. The new Chive and Cheese flavour gives a deliciously delicate twist on the classic cheese and onion combination.
Joining the existing popular range of Sweet Chilli, Herby, and Peppery, GEOSTICKS are suitable for vegans, gluten free, dairy free and high in fibre. At only 91 calories a bag, they are the perfect on-the-go snack. The flavoursome sticks are both light and crunchy, making the delicious snack both mouth-watering and moreish.
The first Fairtrade savoury snack of its kind, GEOSTICKS pioneer a new type of chipstick – combining healthy snacking, fair trade ethics and real human stories.
The snacks are made with Fairtrade rice from Thailand and Fairtrade quinoa from Peru. The quinoa is sourced from the Cabana co-operative, just north of Lake Titicaca, where there are over 500 farmers who specialise in growing and harvesting quinoa in the harsh environmental conditions there.
GEOSTICKS are part of the ever-expanding GEOBAR family which already includes organic wholefood bars, cereal bars, and granola bars.
Traidcraft’s new Chive and Cheese GEOSTICKS are available now to purchase directly from Traidcraft online at www.traidcraftshop.co.uk and other selected wholesalers. Each pack is available to order in cases of 24 x 22g RRP £21.60, with single packets retailing at 90p.
