Snack attack: Made For Drink is aiming to become the UK's top pub snack
In the hope of becoming the UK’s go-to bar snack, Made For Drink has released a selection of nibbles to cater for hungry punters.

The Berkshire-based business Made For Drink has released a number of snacks for punters to tuck into, which is being stocked by the Wine Society and Connaught Wine Cellars.

Similar to your average packet of pork scratchings, these nibbles have a more relevant twist.

To complement their favourite alcoholic tipple, consumers can get their hands on Chorizo Thins, said to be “perfect with red wine”; Duck Fritons, “suited with Indian pale ale”; and Mangalitza Salami Chips, “ideal with a fruity Pilsners”.

These days, it’s common to find sharing plates of crisps or peanuts at the bar.

Daniel Featherstone, the founder behind the artisan snack, said Made For Drink's selection of pub nibbles give a “much tastier” alternative to your average potato crisps and peanuts.

“I feel very strongly that a truly great snack should never be a chore, a half-hearted bite or a lacklustre scoff, but an integral piece of a great night out with family and friends,” he added.

“Sometimes bars and pubs need to go the extra yard and admit that nuts and potatoes simply won’t suffice.”

“I’m as partial to a pint of lager and packet of crisps as anybody, but sometimes there’s a need for top-drawer snacks that complement – not overpower or subdue the flavour – of your favourite alcoholic beverage,” Featherstone concluded.
