Simply Roasted Mature Cheddar & Red Onion

British Crisps may be a website with a firm footing in indulgence, but it doesn't mean I'm some absolute slob with permanently greasy fingers and a gut waging an ever losing battle with gravity. In fact, it may shock you to learn I'm relatively healthy. The key word being relatively. Anyway, whilst it's unarguable that I love a high calorie packet of crisps to fuel my various activities, I'm not averse to a healthy option. And that's why British Crisps is going to take a look at Simply Roasted's Mature Cheddar & Red Onion.

M&S Pepperoni Pizza Ridge Cut Crisps

It should come as no surprise that I like British crisps as, uh, I set up British Crisps to discuss the world of British crisps. But it's not just crisps which I enjoy munching on, I also adore pizza. Therefore, I was cock-a-hoop to stumble across these M&S Pepperoni Pizza Ridge Cut Crisps. The combination of a crunchy fried potato snack alongside the deliciousness of a pizza dripping in calories is the kind of thing that dreams are made of. So, without hesitating, I paid the entrance fee and dove straight in.

Co-op Sea Salt & Chardonnay Wine Vinegar

With their Sea Salt & Chardonnay Wine Vinegar crisps, the Co-op have delivered a flavour with such a sharp, acidic tang, it'll strip your tongue bare and create a year zero moment for your taste buds. Unfortunately, being a supermarket own-brand packet of crisps, the wider world isn't as aware of the intense experience on offer from these slices of potato. But, thanks to the emergence of British Crisps (and a tip-off from one of our loyal Twitter followers), we can start striving to put these wrongs right.

That Time Michael Owen Became a Crisp Flavour

In the late 1990s, Michael Owen was a big deal. After announcing himself on the world stage at France 98, where he shredded the Argentinian defence into confetti, he continued this form domestically with Liverpool and established himself as English football's next great hope. Naturally, where there's success, there's also money, and this is why Walkers, hot on the heels of their success with Gary Lineker, were keen to invest in Michael Owen. Walkers' strategy involved renaming their iconic Cheese & Onion flavour to Cheese & Owen. And British Crisps remembers it well.

Seabrook Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce

There are few British condiments as iconic as Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce. Overflowing with flavours which send your taste buds hurtling in all directions, it's capable of transforming the humblest meal into a gourmet, mouthwatering experience - see beans on toast. So, surely, combining this unique and playful flavouring with a potato - the most humblest of foodstuffs - would be a dream come true for British Crisps.

Burts Mature Cheddar & Onion

If you discuss cheese and onion crisps with mere mortals, you risk finding yourself drawn into an unwinnable debate regarding whether said flavour should be in a blue or green packet. But, dear reader, British Crisps knows you are different. You are the crisp afficionado, you are the type of individual who knows the only important things regarding crisps are taste and quality of crunch. So, rather than waste your valuable time on the validity of colour schemes, I'm going to take you straight to the good stuff: Burts Mature Cheddar & Onion.

Pipers Kirkby Malham Chorizo

Cured meats are far from a healthy option, but this is counterbalanced by the fact they're beyond delicious. Yes, it turns out that high levels of salt, fat, nitrates and nitrites make for the perfect combination of gorgeousness in your mouth. One of the very best examples is chorizo, a cured meat which, several centuries ago, emerged from the Iberian Peninsula. Thankfully, like all good meats, chorizo has made the transition into a crisp flavouring. And that's why British Crisps has picked up a packet of Pipers Kirkby Malham Chorizo and bellowed "To hell with our health!"

Bobby's Burger Bites

There are very few meat eaters who don't revel in the delights of a burger. They are, after all, food valhalla from start to finish. Juicy, beefy bites of fatty, unctuous perfection, there's no argument against the wonders of a burger. This is why I was thrilled to pick up Bobby's Burger Bites for British Crisps.

Darling Spuds Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper

Some crisps like to batter every square inch on your tongue into submission with their potent, taste receptor shredding might. And I'm a sucker for having my taste buds dialled up to 11. But sometimes, just sometimes, I need a little more elegance, a brief respite from all this unhinged, gustatory hedonism. And, in Darling Spuds Sea Salt & Black Pepper, British Crisps has found a worthy candidate.
