Snack happy: 10 best crisps
Classics they may be, but there’s more to these treats than cheese and onion or salt and vinegar. We round up the best, from the exotically flavoured to those made with the finest ingredients
Friday 28 February 2014
Salt and vinegar and limp cheese and onion will no longer suffice. Now specialist crisp companies are coming up with innovative flavours, hand-cooked using the finest ingredients.
We’ve crunched our way through many a packet to find the best out there. From the meal-in-a-crisp-packet that is Burts Guinness Rich Beef Chilli, to the simple but sublime San Nicasio’s Patatas Fritas.

San Nicasio’s crisps might be pricey but they are a cut above other simple salted offerings – great for impressing friends with your pre-dinner party eats. For a tasty snack pack, Pipers’ chorizo crisps have just the right amount of spice. And for an out-of-the-ordinary bag that gives a little bit back, we liked Cornish Crisp Company’s Cornish pasty flavour.
