Tatty Spuds and The Great Tyrrells Taste Test

Posted by Lou on Jul 24, 2009 in Food Shopping |


A wise woman once asked me “what is your favorite vegetable?”

To me this is an easy question. It is quite obviously the humble potato (although parsnips come a very close second).

Potatoes are ultimately versatile, but of the many end uses, the best is most definitely crisps!

This is where our friends at Tyrrells Potato Chips step in. I became very closely acquainted with Tyrrells one evening in our local pub, where I demolished bag after delicious bag of mixed root vegetable crisps until, alas, I couldn’t look at another parsnip ever again (ok, well it was only for a couple of days until we made potato and parsnip mash).

Anyway, where am I going with this?….oh yeah…crisps! I love crisps, what an amazing concept – I could live off crisps and cheese and be really happy for the rest of my life (I’d be fat, but at least I’d be happy). So last week, after a really rubbish day at work, I was over the moon to find Tyrrells had sent us a box of crisps to try…wahoo!!! Makes going to work worthwhile when you come home to that (sorry Duncan). If you sign up to their website, then you too can become part of the taster panel. Every month they randomly pick people from the list and send out 100 boxes of crisps for people to try. If you love food and love life, then you definitely should be doing a bit of Tyrrelling :)

Tyrrells was named after the farm where William Chase, the founder of Tyrrells was brought up and still currently farms. In the late nineties, Will traveled the world researching the perfect potato chip production methods and brought his knowledge back to Herefordshire where Tyrrells potato chips were born. All the potatoes are grown locally within a 50km radius of the farm and they use some delicious varieties such as Lady Claire and Lady Rosetta bounce house sales canada.

You have to check out their very beautifully designed website for more info and the full selection but I urge you to have a bag of the Ludlow Sausage with Wholegrain Mustard crisps! Lush!

Kettle crisps had best watch out! :)

On a final note, they now do potato vodka. See – I told you potatoes were the best vegetable 😉

PS… You can get in touch with Tyrrells on twitter… @Tyrrells give them a nudge and tell them we sent you :)
