“ Brand: Tyrrells / Type: Crisps „
I recently bought a packet of these crisps and was really surprised by how nice they were. These crisps are a bit more expensive than your Walkers crisps but are well worth the extra price. They are really thick and crunchy crisps.
Tyrrells grow their potatoes on a farm in Herefordshire and the crisps are made on the farm. These crisps don't have any extra ingredients they have just potato, sunflower oil and sea salt. The ingredients are suitable for all and mean these are probably one of the best crisps or potato chips for you.
The crisps are really tasty and basically much better than your cheaper crisps. The crisps or potato chips are not too salty and have just the right amount of salt unlike some other crisps. I must admit I am not really sure of the difference between potato chips and crisps but whatever these are I do really like them and much prefer them to the cheaper crisps.
I am not really sure where you can normally buy these crisps but they are well worth paying a little bit more for! I think you can get them for about 60p from various supermarkets but I bought mine from a café!
Tyrrels also do lots of other flavours so if you don`t like your crisps quite plain look out for them.

Tyrrells Lightly Sea Salted Potato Chips are my favourite salted crisps and I'll tell you why.......
Tyrrells hand cooked potato chips (crisps) are what I'd call a premium brand of crisps. They are thick cut and crunchy - Just how I like my crisps!
Tyrrells grow their potatoes on their farm in Herefordshire and the potato chips (or crisps, as I call them) are made on the farm. They cook their potatoes without removing the starch (which often happens with thinner crisps) and so their crisps taste great and are reduced in fat (as they don't soak up as much oil). The particular potato used to make your bag of crisps will be noted on the front of the bag along with the best before date.
The ingredients are simply - Potato, Sunflower Oil and Sea Salt - so you know there are none of those ingredients where you haven't a clue what they are or what they do! These crisps are gluten free, suitable for vegans and vegetarians, and have no artificial or GM products. Could this be one bag of crisps that aren't all that bad for you?
As these potato chips are lightly salted in sea salt, they don't taste overly salty and the sea salt is much preferable to the salt used in cheaper brands. I find Tyrrells crisps are salted to just the right amount. You also seem to get more crisps in a bag than you do in some of the cheaper brands, but, of course, you are paying more for these crisps - I often find them for between 55p - 65p for a 40g bag (note: these crisps are also available in 150g and 300g bags).
Other flavours include Naked Chips (just plain crisps), Cider Vinegar & Sea Salt, Cheddar Cheese & Chives, Sweet Chilli & Red Pepper, Ludlow Sausage with Wholegrain Mustard and others.
Once you've tried these, you won't want to go back to Golden Wonder or Walkers Ready Salted Crisps!
