Tyrrells Crisps have officially come stateside and to celebrate, we were sent their top flavors to taste test here in the Anglotopia office. At the end of the review, see instructions for your chance to win a 6 month supply of these delicious treats from Britain.
The Brits may call them crisps, the Americans call them potato chips, but I call Tyrrells Hand Cooked Chips simply delicious. We here at the Anglotopia offices were recently surprised with a giant box of crisps from Tyrrell’s. I won’t lie, I am not much of a crisp eater, however when I do travel to Britain, crisps are on my must eat list. I can’t explain why, they just seem to taste better over there. My real weakness is the salt and vinegar variety. I love the interesting flavored ones too, like prawns. I’ve never seen prawn flavored potato chips here in the United States.
So when I opened the box from Tyrrells my heart leapt with delight. Not only were there sea salt with apple cider vinegar chips but lots of other uniquely British combinations as well. In all we tried; Worcester sauce with Sun Dried Tomato, Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper, Beetroot with Parsnips and Carrots and Sea Salt Veggie Crisps, Sweet Chilli and Red Pepper, Mature Cheddar and Chives, and of course classic Salted. All of these crisps were out of this world delicious!
It doesn’t get more English than Tyrrells – here’s a bit about their process:
We’re Tyrrells of Tyrrells Court Farm and we make fine English chips from local Herefordshire potatoes. We cook them by hand in small batches and we always leave the skin on. We reckon they’re rather special, but then we would, wouldn’t we? By far the best strategy is for you to grab a bag, dig in and see if you agree.
I can honestly say that these were some of the best crisps that I’ve ever had on either side of the Atlantic Ocean. The flavors were bold and super tasty. I also really liked that the crisps resembled a “kettle cooked” chip as we Americans say, meaning a thicker chip. I was expecting to find at least one bag that didn’t suit my fancy, but I was sorely mistaken. These crisps are like nothing else in the snack isle in the United States right now. I thought to myself that they are unique enough that the could even be served at a party. I highly recommend you give Tyrrells a try. I know this office will be buying more soon!
