A Swedish microbrewery has created exclusive crisps that are made from some of the fanciest ingredients around. But, would you be willing to fork out £46 for just five?

St Erik’s have joined the posh crisp battleground with an offering of a premium snack to match their premium beer.

A la M&S, these aren’t just any ordinary crisps though, oh no, these ones are prepared by the talented chefs of the Swedish National Culinary Team and use some of the most exclusive ingredients available in the Nordics.

They’re made from fine Ammarnas potatoes, Matsutake mushroom, truffle seaweed, dill, leksand onion and India pale ale but of course, for the best taste experience, they should be enjoyed with a pint of St Eriks’ artisanal standard beer.

The five crisps are served in a classy black box and cost a steep £46.

While this might just be one massive and seriously expensive PR stunt to promote their beer, the good news is all income generated from the crisps will be donated to charity.

Feeling famished and fancy all at once? Well these upmarket flavours will certainly impress but with such meagre portions you’re definitely going to need a good old fashioned Walkers on standby.
