Corkers Crisps – Review
Crisps are a treat in my house so I only buy good quality crisps which have a lot of delicious flavour. My new absolute favourite are the crisps from Corkers. A family business, crisps with good flavours and a good price.
The potatoes are grown on the family farm in Cambridgeshire and the factory is also located there so all the crisps are hand-grown and hand-cooked on site. Best friends Ross Taylor and Rod Garnham founded Corkers in 2010, diversifying the family farm from potatoes to hand-cooked crisps. Drawing on years of family experience and with their unique Naturalo potato, they set about creating the ultimate, non-greasy crisp with a natural crunch. The crisps are stocked at the Tate and National Trust properties, delis, farm shops and Waitrose stores.
Their flavours include – Red Leicester and caramelised onion, sea salt, sea salt and black pepper, sea salt and cider vinegar, duck and hoisin Sauce, Sweet Thai Chilli, Mixed vegetables and pork sausage and English mustard flavour. the flavours are brilliantly strong and taste natural unlike some crisps which have that chemical flavour. It tastes good and is now easily my favourite crisp brand. I am hooked!
The family have been farming spuds since the 1800’s so have a lot of experience and knowledge they have put into their crisps. They have been awarded Potato Grower of the Year by UK Growers Award telling you they really do have the best spuds in the country.
There is a lot about food miles in the news at the moment and for Corkers Crisps you could throw a potato from one of the fields and it would hit the factory. It’s nice to know they haven’t got far to go. Plus they timed a potato from soil to packet and it took 42 minutes! That is staggeringly brilliant.
In 2014 they produced 10 million bags of crisps. That is bonkers!
The crisps have a great crunch and the taste as I said before is wondeful. The Thai flavour is rather nice.
The mixed vegetable, sausage and mustard, duck and sea salt and cider vinegar have to be my favourite. I’d never had a beetroot crisp before and I’m now hooked. They are so delicious and I’m sure they count as one of my five a day.
If you need me I’ll be in the sunshine with a cider and pack of delicious crisps.
I was given the crisps to review all opinions are my own.
