Freedom Japanese Market Review: June 2017
A family saw a gap in the market, when their friends who had moved away from Japan could not find the same high quality of Japanese snacks in their own country. During a family holiday in the U.S, they noticed that the international stores stocked snacks, but they were either dangerously close to their sell by dates or not even of Japanese origin. With this in mind, the family went away and set up family run Freedom Japanese Market, with a determined mission to deliver quality Japanese to the world.

Calling all you modern hippies, now is your chance to unite – power to the peas people – Peace. Mind, body and soul these little peas are seriously good for you, organic, high in fibre, a source of protein, gluten free, vegan and no additives or preservatives. Environmentally friendly, these peas do their share, as they naturally release nitrogen back into the earth as they grow, Man that is cool stuff!

Popchips Review: February 2017
Popchips a California creation began in 2007 and is one of the fastest growing snack brands in America. Los Angeles in California is the Headquarters for the fabulous Popchips and now with an office right here in the UK they are popping up all over the world. Keith Belling a serial entrepreneur along with Pat Turpin a fellow foodie and business start-up guru are both the founders and chairmen behind these cool crazy crisps…well chips! Both have a wealth of experience in business – in fact over 40 years between them! This pair of super snackers are clearly passionate about Popchips and launching a healthier snack off worldwide. Exciting stuff! Even more exciting was the big bold red boxed delivery, that I received. My turn to go on a ridge ride and get my snack on!
