Crisps are a pretty big deal in our house, with all four of the males being obsessed with the damn things. Me? Well, apart from nacho’s, which are one of my most favourite things to put in my mouth EVER, I’m not really that bothered by them. In fact, I’d go as far to say that I don’t really like them. I’d have to be really hungry and there be nothing else in the house for me to consider opening a bag.
Fairfields Farm Heat and Crisps are a whole new ball game though. They are lush!
I was intrigued by these crisps, which are available in sea salted or cheese and chive flavour because they are the first ever microwaveable crisps. Yes – you pop the bag of crisps in the microwave! You open the bag, remove the dip (more about that in a moment) and whack them in for 30 seconds. Now, I love hot nachos, but hot crisps? Hmmmm.
They’re good. Really good. If you don’t fancy heating them up, they’re just as tasty cold. They’re quite thickly cut, but not so thick they go all claggy in your mouth. They’re absolutely loaded with flavour, even without the dip. I thought they might go a bit soggy but they retained their crunch perfectly.
Let’s talk about that dip though. The cheese and chive ones come with a pot of caramelised onion chutney and the sea salt flavour has tomato salsa. My only complaint is that the pots are maybe a tiny bit on the small size – they’re so lush that I just wanted more! The caramelised onion one was gorgeous, and we caught Benjamin dipping his finger in on more than one occasion. The tomato one was really tangy and complimented the saltiness of the crisps perfectly. I did, however, prefer the combination of the salted crisps with the onion chutney.
At the moment, they’re only available in Tesco and selected East of England Co-op stores, but they are definitely one to look out for. I’ll be adding these to our Christmas food shopping list, that’s for sure!
