Casino Chips Campagnardes

Produits de qualite depuis 1901 says the packet. And so I assume that the Casino supermarket brand began in 1901. It's hard to find any information about it in English because of the vast number of online casinos that cluttered up my every search. I have been to an enormous Geant Casino shop somewhere near Saint Tropez in the South of France which was impressively huge, but I think this packet of crisps came from a small store in Pierrefonds.

Interestingly campagnard translates (thank you google) as countryman, campagnarde as countrywoman, and compagnardes as rustic. So now we know. This is a packet of rustic crisps. But what makes these simple sunflower oil and salt potato crisps rustic? I should have thought rustic crisps wouldn't be crinkle cut. But there you are.
Although Tall taste tester opined that these crisps are never going to set the world on fire we did seem to eat quite a lot of them. Pleasantly crunchy, lightly salty, really quite nice. And I didn't read the back of the packet so I didn't realise I should have heated them up. But we only have a microwave in th office and Casino don't recommend a micro; you've got to use an oven.
