1. LOCAL SNACKS

This post is heavily on processed and bagged snacks that can be bought at the supermarket; for your next picnic, party, movie night, or just snacks you wanna bring along to work. For the freshly made options check this post on Kenyan Street Foods. Local snacks are mostly tangy and savory thanks to the love of heat, spice, and herbs. There are sweet pastry and bakery options as well. 

In Kenya’s snack scene, there isn’t much offering on different types of snacks, just multiple variations of the same thing by different brands. This is kinda disappointing but oh well. Sasa tutadu?


1A. POTATO CRISPS & POTATO SNACKS


The top 3 local potato crisps(chips) brands are Tropical Heat, Urban Bites, and Krackles.

(1) Tropical Heat Crisps

Owned by Tropical Heat Group, the famous classic crisps come in 7 flavors;

●Salted,●Cheese-Onion,●Nyama Choma,●Chili-Lemon,●Tomato ●Salt &Vinegar. 

These Tropical Heat crisps are not the softest, yes they are crunchy( which is a good thing), but again so hard, probably harder than Krackles and Urban Bites.

Available in bag sizes of (50g,1.8oz) to (400g,14oz)

Approximate calories come between 500 to 600 kcal per 100g serving.

Owned by Norda Industries, founded in 2008. Urban Bites comes in 7 variations/flavors;

●Tomato●Summer Salt●Salt & Vinegar●Peri Peri●Paprika●Nyama Choma●Fruit Chutn’y.

Nyama Choma is basically barbecue flavor as Nyama Choma is Swahili for grilled meat. Urban Bites comes in bag sizes of (120g,4oz) and (30g, 1oz) across all 7 flavors.

Approximate Calories: 251kJ/100g 

Urban Bites Crisps Fruit Chutney 30g

(3) Krackles

Processed by The Snack Factory a division of Pro pack-Kenya Ltd. Krackles have been in production since 1996. They taste okay just like any average classic crisps.

●Tutti-Frutti, ●Flavor,●Barbecue,●Tangy Tomato,●Tingly Cheese & Onion,●Caramel,●Salted  ●Hot & Sweet.

4. Krackles Kettle Chips

The Lemon and black pepper flavor for instance; has black pepper as the overpowering flavor and lemon is the aftertaste.

A single 30g package has 131 calories and allergens may include: milk, nuts, and gluten

5. Masala Sticks 

These are potato sticks seasoned with masala mix. The common brand is Tropical Heat Masala Sticks by The Tropical Heat Group. You might wanna skip these if you can’t handle spice, or have an accompanying drink to wash them down

Masala sticks look like mini french fries but overly thin and short, infact they just look like wood chippings but are regular in shape. Unlike fries, they are not oily infact they are dry and crisp. On opening the bag, you are greeted with a spicy subtle aroma with notes of vegetable oil

What do Masala Sticks taste like? The first thing is the satisfying crunch, upon chewing the sticks down, the flavors start kicking in. They taste like potato crisps but just in a different shape and thickness, then next the masala spice kicks in. The spice heat grows intense with every second and will have you salivating for more. The aftertaste is just the residual heat from your tongue to your throat. Now this is where your cold drink comes to clutch

Ingredients: Potatoes● Salt● Chilies● Turmeric● Sugar● Citric Acid● Vegetable Oil


6. Kenyan Chevda

This is without doubt the most iconic and ethnic Kenyan snack. It is owned by The Tropical Heat Group. Other brands offer it too but the quality is not to Tropical Heat level. 

What does chevda taste like? The first thing you appreciate is the sweetness plus crunchiness from the fried chips and chickpeas, then upon 2 to 3 munches, the nuttiness from the peanuts and cashew nuts explodes, and then the herby taste finishes it off from the dry herbs used. The aftertaste is slight heat and spice with a subtle sweetness.

 It is a blend of different snacks like; Processed Potatoes, Nuts, Herbs, and Spices, with at least 5 variants;

●Original ●Hot ●Masala ● Chili ●No added sugar. 

It is mostly spicy and sweet but with the perfect balance. The crunchy texture is to die for as well. Kenyan Chevda is available in the following bag sizes; (50g,1.7oz) (150g,5.3oz) and (340g,12oz). It packs approximately 2204kJ/100g serving with the following ingredients; Potatoes, Peanuts, Cashew nuts, Curry leaves, Sugar, and Spices among others.

7. Elbbin Nibble

This is a multigrain chips brand with chips in a unique wavy pattern w-shape. Corn Flour, Whole Wheat, Rice Flour, Oats, and Wheat Bran are combined with Salt, Vegetable Oil, and BBQ flavors.

The flavors are not that intense at least for the BBQ, in my opinion, I could smell it but not taste it. (Just like the pizza delivery guy)

 The chips are thick in cross-section and have a satisfying crunch

The 30g packet packs 144.6kcal and allergens include: Gluten and Dairy

1B: CORN SNACKS


1. Ola Tortila Chips

Ola tortilla chips are made from corn, they are the local version of Doritos. Tortilla chips have less fat than potato chips(crisps) thus a healthier alternative. The Ingredients in these tortillas are; Corn, Oil(Canola, Sunflower, or Vegetable), Salt, and Flavors. The flavor offerings from Ola include; Lightly Salted, Cheese Crunch, Cool Crunch, Lime Crunch, and Mexican Crunch.

2. Ringoz  

Ringoz are baked corn puffs from Norda Industries. They are notorious for being addictive at least for me and the majority of people. The main ingredients are corn grits, vegetable oil, and flavors; Paprika and Barbecue. 

Available in (30g, 1oz ) and (80g, 2.8oz ) bags.  Calories 2066.9kJ/100g

3. Bitez

Just like Ringoz, they are both made by Norda Industries. They pack the same ingredients and differ in shape and texture. Bitez are more crunchy than Ringoz. They also differ in shape; Ringoz are rings while Bitez are corn curls.

4.Popcorns

A puffy snack made from popping specific corn kernels in heat vegetable oil and salt. It is enjoyed crunchy. Premade popcorn from the shops is convenient as it is ready to eat and no preparation is required. Also, it comes in a variety of flavors to suit every taste bud. The drawbacks of premade popcorn are losing crunchiness and turning stale if it sit on the shelf for a while. 

I prefer making my own at home on the stove, and then drizzling ghee and ground fine salt before tossing them and enjoying

5. Bdelo Tortilla Chips

These are tortilla chips, not made entirely from corn, but potato as well. They are thin and crunchy compared to the Ola Tortilla chips above. The package says they contain no MSG or Gluten. It is funny that MSG myths still exist in 2023 after studies confirm it is naturally occurring, and the FDA confirms it is safe They taste mid however, in my opinion, the cheese onion flavor isn’t that punchy. Despite that, they are generally okay. Use them to make nachos or dip in guacamole or salsa.

1C: OTHERS


1. Banana  Chips:

Crunchy delicious slices of banana that have been sliced, dried, or deep fried and flavored as desired. They are an alternative to potato and tortilla chips. However, they are not as good as potato chips IMO

2. Fried Peas: 

Lower in calories and higher in fiber, also to mention they pack high protein contents. They are extra crunchy and almost on the hard level. You need good teeth for these. Note that fried peas are highly processed with added sugar and don’t compare nutritionally to normally cooked peas.

Recommended Brands:(Tropnuts, Honeycomb)

3. Cashew Nuts: 

Cashew nuts are usually expensive and cost up to 5x other nuts. You might be wondering why; First off the extraction process is labor intensive, the shell that contains the nuts are poisonous, and everything is done manually. A Kg of raw cashew nuts in Kenya goes for over KSh 2,500. 

Cashew nuts in Kenya are grown in the coastal counties of Kwale, Kilifi, Mombasa, and Lamu.

Raw cashews have a creamy and slightly sweet taste, while roasted cashews have a nuttier and more robust flavor. It’s important to note that while cashews are healthy and nutritious, they are also high in calories and fat. A single serving of cashews  (28g, 1oz) contains around 150-200 calories. Just like peanuts, cashew nuts can be bought fried or roasted, some are even coated in honey and they are heavenly.

Recommended Brands: (Out of Africa, Nutfields)

4. Peanuts: 

Also known as Njugu Karanga which translates to Fried Peanuts. Peanuts are also known as Groundnuts. They are commonly grown in Western counties of Kenya but on a small scale. They are relatively cheap and a 1 kg packet of raw dried peanuts is just over KSh 250 in the farmer’s market.

 Processed bagged peanuts are popular and healthy as they pack high amounts of proteins, minerals, fiber, and fats. Characterized by crunchy and flavorful texture with nutty notes. Peanuts are either roasted or fried before being packed. Some are salted others are not, same for skinning; with skin or without skin. Peanuts can also be flavored with different flavorings, especially chili lemon. Some are even coated with masala paste. The masala ones are spicy and my personal favorite

Recommended Brands:(Tropnuts, Naturalli, Happy’s & Green Forest)

5. Macadamia: 

Macadamia nuts are grown in Central counties of Kenya, especially in Murang’a and Kiambu. Just like cashew nuts, macadamia nuts are expensive, 1 kg will cost you over KSh 2,300. The high price is due to the extraction process 2,068,000 newtons per square meter are required to crack a nut.

Macadamia nuts from the Macadamia tree are roasted, salted, then packed. It’s important to keep in mind that macadamia nuts are high in calories,  so it’s best to enjoy them in moderation as part of a balanced diet. You can opt to buy raw ones and roast them by yourself too

Recommended Brands:(Nutfields, Equatorial, Out of Africa, & Simply Gourmet)

6. Mixed Nuts: 

A delicious snack blend that incorporates other snacks, especially nuts. The mixing of different nuts is done in ratios. The constituents include; Peanuts, Cashew-Nuts, Macadamia, almonds, and walnuts. Herbs can be added sometimes as well. Processing companies are notorious for using peanuts with over 50% of the mixture and calling it “Mixed Nuts” lol. They do so to save costs as peanuts are relatively cheaper in contrast to other exotic nuts.

Recommended Brands: (Nutfields, Out of Africa, & Tropical Heat-Exotic  Snacks)

7. Mandazi Bites: 

Small deep-fried cubed donuts that are bite-sized. They come in different flavor twists; Lemon, Banana, Coconut, Milk, and Honey. 

Mill Bakers Limited makes the best mandazi bites IMO. The freshly made from the supermarket bakery section; [ Carrefour, Naivas, and Quickmart ] are fairly good, but I find them lacking consistency; they might be a hit today, and the following day a miss.

Note:

The recommended brands above are on the basis of quality, satisfaction, and consistency from my honest consumer experience. I am not affiliated with any of the mentioned brands.

Japan is where Kit Kat is more popular and Kit Kat’s biggest market. They even have dedicated Kit Kat shops. Some variations require baking first before consuming!

 The reason for their popularity and obsession is that they translate to Japanese as ‘kitto katsu’ Which means ‘surely win’ and is thus associated with good luck, making them so giftable, especially in exams and competitions like in sports and athletics.

2.  Pringles

Unlike ordinary potato chips/crisps,  Pringles are made from dehydrated potato flakes, mixed with corn and wheat starches. However, claims state that the potato content is less than fillers and therefore not widely recognized as potato chips. They are famous for their uniform parabolic shape and are packed in long tins as opposed to conventional bags. Due to the uniformity in geometry, they are stackable and thus take up really small spaces in the container.

Fun Fact: Fred Baur, the guy who invented  Pringle‘s tube packing was buried in a Pringle’s Original tube as requested 

Fun Fact 2: If you put two Pringles opposite in your mouth you become a duck!
