If you like your crisps, than be sure to try the highly moreish Fairfields Farm Crisps, made from hand-selected potatoes on a three-generation run farm in Essex.
Robert and Laura, the creators of Fairfields Farm Crisps, are certainly passionate about creating unique bags of fried potatoes. They use potatoes grown in the fertile soils of Colne Valley in Essex, which they hand-pick and pan-fry (with the skin on), using sunflower oil. So you can be sure not to find any nasty bruised crisps in your bag. Hoorah! The potatoes are then flavoured with the finest locally sourced and natural ingredients.
You can take your pick from six distinct flavours that coat the thick and highly satisfying crunch of Fairfields Farm crisps. There’s the herby ‘Suffolk Farmhouse Cheese & Chive’ or ’Sweet Suffolk chilli’ – yes it’s actually made from chillies grown in Suffolk not Thailand! The ‘Wicks Manor Smoky Bacon & Sunday Roast Potato’ flavour laughs in the face of all other bacon flavoured crisps, with its subtle oak and beech smokiness. The ‘Lightly Sea Salted’ possesses the perfect amount of salt without eroding away half of your mouth, whilst the delicate ‘Sea Salt & Aspall Cyder Vinegar’ flavour, has won a great taste award three years running. And last but not least, my personal favourite, the glorious combination of ‘Parsnip Crisps with Essex Honey & Black Pepper’ - scrumptious.
Available in 40g (RRP 64p) and 100g bags (RRP £1.29), the crisps are available through The Cooperative and over 500 independent retail outlets nationwide, as well as Harvey Nichols and National Trust properties.
