Out of 5,383 products worldwide to receive a Great Taste 1-, 2- or 3-star accolade on Tuesday 21 September, Pure Cheese Crisps will now be able to display the unmistakable black and gold logo, a stamp of excellence that is recognised by retailers and consumers alike.

What a lovely idea! These little lacey discs look and smell very appealing! On tasting they are crisp and crunchy and packed with cheesy flavour. They are very moreish and we could keep on eating them - a sure sign of a winner! Also they would make great gluten-free canapé bases.”

“Attractive deep cheddar colouring with appealing bubbly texture. Generous size with a homemade appeal. Good snap. Evident that good quality cheddar has been used with well balanced use of garlic and oregano. Clean moreish finish.

“Fascinating looking aerated biscuits, like the surface of the moon. They have excellent crunch and are hugely satisfying. The immediate and vibrant flavour of the cheese is supported by the rosemary and the garlic. The chilli comes in latterly and builds to the most satisfying level.”


Founded in 2020 by two former engineers, Monarchs aims to offer the best low carb crisps in the UK.

After craving crunchy snacks on their low carb diet Alex & Greg set out to bake their own natural & delicious keto crisps made only from mature British cheddar and organic herbs & spices.
