These Tyrrell's chips were lightly salted and had a really nice crunch. They are more like crispy Hawaiian Original chips than say Lay's Potato Chips. The light dusting of sea salt was a perfect touch.
The website says the potatoes are from local farmers, the skin is left on, they are thick cut, hand cooked in small batches, and nothing artificial. Oh and they are called "crisps" not chips. The website for Tyrrell's is actually better than most. And oh the different types of chips they sell! Sea Salt and Cider Vinegar, Mature Cheddar & Chives, Sunday Best Roast Chicken, Ludlow Sausage and Mustard, Worcester Sauce & Sun-dried Tomato, Honey Roast Ham & Cranberry, English Summer Barbecue....I'm so bummed that the only variety I could find was the basic chip! er Crisp! Oh and they don't just make chips, they make popcorn, peanuts, rice crackers and tortilla chips.
I loved the swimmers doing handstands on the front of the package. I thought it fit in perfectly with the Olympic theme this week. There are different "old time" photographs on all of their packaging. They even mention where you can send in your old photos of your English ancestors and get them on the front of their products.
More chips please! We plan on going back to World Market and buying more of these.
UPDATE: Since we really liked these chips, I went on Tyrrell's Facebook page and asked where I could find more of them (specifically some of their other flavors). They actually answered and said they'd get back to me on where I might purchase them here in the US. I'll keep you posted if they come up with a place.
