Anyway, here we have a little packet of crisps from the new Spring/Summer range for 2015. Newly designed bag. New little blue logo saying Tastes of the British Isles.
The potatoes are a variety I don't think I have come across before; Markies. The fabulous Potato Council Variety Database tells me it was bred by Agrico UK Ltd, and the parent breeds were Agria and Fianna. I love the Potato Council database. Surely almost as good as the FBI databases Abby's always looking at on NCIS.
Mnnn not a bad entry in the salt and vinegar stakes. A nice mix of sea salt and sweetness from the balsamic, and then a big hit of vinegar. Some of the crisps in this packet were huge and all had a good hearty crunch. This is another good crisp from M&S. Plus they worked very well with leftover sour cream and chive dip. You can't say better than that.
