Judges raved…

Sea Salt & Black Pepper

“These are lovely looking crisps… They’re well puffed up with a delicious crunch, and the texture is spot on. The pepper adds warmth and character, and the flavours linger. Delicious and very moreish crisps.”

“Just the right amount of salt and characterful pepper!”

Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar

“They have a great crunch and a wonderful potato flavour… well salted without being too heavy. The cider vinegar imparts good acidity and more interest than a standard malt. All judges went back for seconds! Well made and moreish.”

“Great consistency with a lovely crunchy crunch! If consumers love vinegar, they will love these!”
