Ritz, the world’s number one savoury biscuit brand has just launched their baked crisps called the new Ritz Crisp & Thin. The oven-baked potato snack comes in four tasty flavours – Cream Cheese & Onion, Sea Salt & Vinegar, Sea Salt & Black Pepper, and Sweet Red Chilli.
Since the crisps are baked they are healthier, they are perfect for serving with dips and cocktails for parties, barbecues and picnics. The crisps come in sharing bags and single serving bags that are ideal for on the go or lunch boxes too.
I recently attended the Ritz crisp and thin launch party. The party was hosted in an amazing penthouse overlooking London. As we mingled amongst friends, we had a band serenading us some live music to set the mood. Glorious summer weather and drinks on the open planned living room surrounded by stunning views from open balconies made the perfect setting for the party.
We sampled these delectable crisps with some wonderful dips and cocktails especially designed to go with each of the crisp flavours. The cocktails were created by Richard Wood, on offer was the Ritz -Sweet Chilli Julep made with Jack Daniels, marmalade mint leaves and orange zest. This was paired with the Sweet red chilli Ritz Crisp & Thins served with a smoky lemon yoghurt dip made by Alice Levine,
The Sea Salt and Black Pepper flavor Ritz Crisp & Thins were served with a summer tomato salsa and paired with Ritz –Lovers Cup a cocktail made with Bacardi, Martini and Tio pepe stirred with Maraschilo liqueur, sugar syrup and strawberry infused balsamic vinegar and Prosecco.
Ritz- Mates Mary made with Vodka and Bloody Mary Consommé was the perfect combination for the Cream Cheese and onion Ritz Crisp & Thins which were also served with Beetroot Ripple Dip.
The sea salt and vinegar Ritz Crisp & Thins went beautifully with the Ritz- Pea & Dill GnT@No Big Dill Cocktail. The crisps were served with The Pea, Mint and Feta dip which was creamy and delicious and an absolute perfect accompaniment to the crisps.
I really enjoyed the evening and will most certainly purchase the Ritz Crisp & Thins for my next party. The pairing of the dips and cocktails have given me lots of inspirations and I am going to see if I can come up with some mocktail alternatives to the cocktails to go with these lovely crisps. I was a guest of the Ritz Bakery and was I was given samples of the crisps to try. If you would like some tips and on how to Put on the Ritz do watch this video.
