Made with the finest quality ingredients, Chika’s premium hand produced snacks brings a real taste of West Africa to the UK and are bursting with flavour in every morsel.
Whether it’s lavish plantain crisps with a hint of chilli, healthy light chickpea crisps for a guilt free snack between lunch and dinner or some hand toasted peanuts to complement your summer picnic, Chika’s are the ultimate snack choice whatever the occasion.
Here at SLOAN! we loved the Hand Toasted Peanuts with Skin – these taste so authentic and are a delicious gourmet treat so far removed from the ubiquitous boring salted peanuts served by less inspired hosts. Although the Chickpea Crisps are lower in fat than standard potato crisps, we found the flavour didn’t have the spicy kick we were expecting but they probably taste good to palates unaccustomed to chilli.Tempt your taste buds with one of these delicious varieties…
With 40% lower fat than potato crisps, Chika’s chickpea crisps have all the flavour but none of the guilt!

Added vibrancy and warmth are achieved with a sprinkle of cumin seeds and cracked black pepper to give a delicately nutty crisp with a fragrant aroma
