If there is one thing that can divide a family at the Christmas dinner table, it's Brussels sprouts. 

The flavoursome festive vegetable is definitely a love-it-or-hate-it dinner item, but they are a staple part of the festive season.  

Now, you're in luck if you love the little green veg, because Walkers have created a Brussels sprout flavoured crisp for Christmas. 

Walkers marketing manager, Andrew Hawkswell told Nottinghamshire Live: 'Here at Walkers we know that Christmas isn’t Christmas without sprouts.'

'Whether you grin or grimace at the sight of them, nothing divides the nation more at Christmas than a sprout – so we have created two Christmas Dinner multipacks, one for sprout lovers and one for haters to keep the peace this festive season.'

The ‘sprout lover’ includes three flavours, Brussels Sprouts, Turkey & Stuffing and Pigs in Blankets, while the ‘sprout hater’ comprises of Glazed Ham, Turkey & Stuffing and Cheese & Cranberry.

The weird and wonderful crisps are definitely a festive talking point. 

You can nab your own packet online here. 


We'd take any excuse to munch a whole bag of crisps, and now with Saint Patrick's Day around the corner, our sense of patriotism is coming in handy. 

Combining two esteemed Irish brands, O’Donnells have created a Ballymaloe Relish and Cheddar Cheese flavour of their hand-cooked crisps, and we've never needed less of an excuse to scoff the lot.

“For many years our customers have asked for Ballymaloe Relish flavoured crisps so we are thrilled to see this happen and with such a fantastic company O’Donnells!" said Maxine Hyde, Head of Sales and Marketing for Ballymaloe Foods. 

"It was great fun developing the flavour with Ed and Kate O’Donnell. “

The crisps are made using home grown Tipperary potatoes, and O'Donnells have sourced the best local artisan food producers in Ballymaloe to provide unique individual flavours.

The gluten free crisps will be appearing on the supermarket shelves in mid-March, and we honestly cannot wait. 


Now, we love our food and trying new things here in Shemazing! HQ, BUT a tenner for ONE crisp? You're having a laugh…

A Swedish brewery named St Erik thinks that regular crisps are ruining the taste of their posh beer, so the company made their own, and apparently, they're the "world's most exclusive crisps.

"We felt we were missing a snack of the same status to serve with it. A first class beer deserves a first class snack," St Erik's spokesperson said.

The crisps come in a little black box, in which they are all individually wrapped. They also have five different flavours which include Matsutsake (mushroom), truffle seaweed, crown dill, leksand onion, and India pale ale. The cost? €51.

According to Aterirt, the crisps are so exclusive because the potatoes can only be found in a stony slope which is inaccessible to modern farming machinery.

Only 100 boxes of the snack were made and they're already sold out.

We don't know about you, but those five crisps would be gone in one mouthful.


Tens of thousands of Irish fans are currently in the French capital in advance of the team's opening Euro 2016 game.

And joining them this evening is none other than Mr Tayto himself.

The oversized potato-man furthermore made sure he was suitably decked out for the sporting event – which sees the Republic of Ireland squad take on Sweden. 

Wearing a green, white, and orange curly wig he proudly sported a green jersey and scarf while getting to know some of in situ fans.

Closer to home, the same Mr Tayto can currently be found across Tayto Cheese & Onion 150g sharing bag and Tayto multipacks.




Us Irish love a classic crisp sandwich. Most commonly made with cheese and onion Taytos or King’s, some people are into more edgy crisp sandwich flavours, like salt and vinegar.

But this…This goes beyond anything we ever wanted to see in a crisp sandwich. The brave people behind Facts. have been testing out some more unusual flavours, such as peanut butter, gherkin and salt and vinegar sandwich.

Or perhaps you’d prefer a more classic Meanies, cheese and mustard?

We can’t really see ourselves tucking into any of those the day after a night out somehow…Don't mess with a classic!


While nothing beats a packet of our own favourite Taytos – we can’t help being partial to the taste of some homemade crisps. And now you can create your own favourite flavoured crisps, thanks to this simple recipe.

What you’ll need:

  • 200g potato
  • ¾ tsp.  salt
  • 150ml malt or cider vinegar

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 120°C and line your baking sheets with olive oil (otherwise the crisps may stick to the baking sheets).
  2. Mix the salt with the vinegar until dissolved.
  3. Scrub your potatoes well and leave unpeeled. Then cut as thinly as possible with a sharp knife.
  4. Place the potato slices in a bowl, pour over the liquid and leave to soak for 10 minutes.
  5. After soaking, drain the potato slices well and shake off any excess liquid. Lay the slices in a single layer on your baking sheets.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, then turn the baking sheets around, swap the shelves that they’re on and bake for another 15 to 30 minutes until crisp. Ovens, potatoes and slicing thicknesses vary, so make sure to check them often.
  7. You can then eat your crisps on their own or if you like can serve with dips.



Kale is one of the best foods you can eat, it’s higher in iron than beef and contains powerful antioxidants. It’s also no longer a challenge to find kale in Irish supermarkets, as can be the problem with some other superfoods.

These kale chips can be used in place of crisps to give you that crunchy, salty fix you need without casting your healthy regime aside altogether.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 handfuls of kale, washed and dried very well
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin live oil
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Wash and dry the kale well, divide it into bite sizes.
  3. Massage the kale with the olive oil, getting it into all the crevices. Put each piece onto the baking tray.
  4. Place the kale in the oven, checking frequently because there is a thin line between crispy and burnt with these bad boys. Overall, it should take approx. 5-7mins.
  5. Sprinkle with the salt and paprika and serve.
