I found these on a visit to our favourite farm shop “Dart Farm Shop” neat Exeter. I can recommend visiting them we often do just for the breakfast before a bit of light shopping…
These crisps do really taste a bit like a Guinness Beef flavoured Chilli, even the what looks like the complete absence of both beef and Guinness. There is unfortunately very little heat from the Paprika and Chilli Extracts. The basic crisps and excellent, not to thick and with a fresh and satisfying crunch I would expect from a Burts product.
Ingredients: Potatoes, Sunflower Oil, Sugar, Yeast Extract Powder, Salt, Natural Flavourings (Barley), Onion Powder, Paprika Powder, Barley Malt Extract Powder, Spices, Tomato Powder, Herbs, Acid: Citric Acid, Natural Colour: Paprika Extract, Chilli Extract.
On the back of the packet they say “The Heat Goes On – Continuing our mission to take taste buds to new extremes, we’ve taken fresh jalapeño chillies and juicy, succulent beef flavours and infused the world’s most iconic stout to create Guinness® Rich Beef Chilli Burts Chips. Not for the faint hearted these thick cut, hand cooked crisps pack some serious punch, with rich, deep layers of authentic flavour, that will have you coming back crunch after crunch…” not sure they know what heat means here…
I got the 40g bag for I think about 75p, but I have also seen that a 150g bag is available from Tescos for £1.99. They are worth a try but they are not going to set the world alight for their chilli heat, but I really enjoyed them and will probably pick up a few more packs for my lunches..
