Review: The Nut Shack

The Nut Shack kindly sent me their range of flavoured nuts to try. I love snacks & nuts so was excited to try these.? Back when I would actually go to pubs I would always order nuts & crisps because snacks are life.

[otw_shortcode_quote border_style=”bordered”]The Nut Shack is a family run business based in Paisley, Scotland (formerly based in East Midlands). We are a snack producer that likes to deviate from the mainstream flavour combinations and instead specialise in making uniquely flavoured products.[/otw_shortcode_quote]

So there are 5 flavours to choose from, most are spicy ones. Bacon, Scotch Bonnet, Habanero & Garlic, Cajun and Piri Piri. Bacon and Cajun are my favourites. They’re available in 3 different sizes 60g, 250g & 1kg.

[otw_shortcode_quote border_style=”bordered”]We believe our core range of 5 fantastic flavours delivers on all fronts and with 3 different sized bags, there is an option to suit all occasions.[/otw_shortcode_quote]

The flavours and my verdict

“The one that started it all.? With hundreds of kilos sold since we created this flavour, it?s pretty safe to say the flavour works.”

Bacon are sooo good and I love finding vegan things that are bacon flavoured or a substitute. These are so moreish and I’ll definitely be buying more of these. If you don’t like spice but love flavour then these are perfect for you. 10/10


“After the success of our Habanero & Garlic flavour, we developed these.? They come in at up to 400,000 Scoville units and are very hot but still have a great, deep almost fruity flavour profile.?Have a beer handy when trying these.”

Most people know that Scotch Bonnet chillies are hot. I found a few of the others spicy so knew these would be too spicy for me. I struggled to eat these because of the heat but they were nice. 3/10


“Peanuts blended with a traditional Cajun recipe with deep spice flavour with a herby finish.”

I like a bit of spice so I thought these were really good. Not too hot but just the right amount. These went down a little too easily and didn’t?stick around for long. 9/10


“These peanuts are blended with basil, onion and a pinch of cayenne and chilli.? They are low on heat and high on flavour, a balanced well rounded snack.”

These naturally made me think of Nandos so I knew they would be spicy too. They were spicy but nice. Maybe just don’t eat the whole packet in one go and have a cold drink handy ha. 10/10


“This blend of Habanero chilli and garlic has been one of our top sellers.??These were our very first hot nuts and come in at around the 350,000 Scoville mark and are not for the faint-hearted.”

I didn’t expect these to be as hot as they were because of the garlic I suppose..?but again Habanero is spicy. Spicy but a really lovely flavour. I enjoyed them a lot. 8/10


The Nut Shack & their products definitely don’t disappoint. The products are vegan & packed full of flavour.? Prices start from ?1.75 and the Mini Mixed Box (which I received) contains 5 mixed bags for only ?8.50 with FREE DELIVERY. Go check them out & support a small business!



*I received free products but this in no way biases my opinion of the brand. This is an honest review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.


I hope you enjoyed this post and that you check them out!
