Beef Burger Handcooked Potato Crisps (Marks & Spencer) [By @SpectreUK]

Produced for Marks & Spencer these Beef Burger Handcooked Potato Crisps sounded like the perfect snack to enjoy indoors. The “Great British Summer” was emblazoned on the front of the 150g bag with an image of a moustachioed guy wearing an interesting apron cooking burgers on a barbecue. Even though there’s still snow on the ground in parts outside whilst I’m writing this blog and we all know that a “Great British Summer” usually consists of sprinting into the back garden between the multitude of showers to set up the barbecue and by the time you’ve got the fire going the next rain shower douses it out! Perhaps I’m being too negative or am I just talking from experience? More likely the later, but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying a decent bag of crisps, and I do really like the apron that guy is wearing on the bag. Each 100g of these Beef Burger crisps has 505 calories, with 1g of sugar and 29g of fat. These crisps were vegetarian friendly. There were no artificial colours or flavourings in the ingredients, and they included; beef burger flavour seasoning (which must be a secret ingredient), barley, wheat, sugar, onions, vinegar, salt, citric acid, paprika, dill and sunflower oil. There was a beef, onion and dill smell to these crisps on opening the bag. There was a definite chargrilled beef burger flavour from the crisps, which goes with the smoked salt and paprika in the ingredients, also with a mild onion and dill flavour. These crisps had a lovely taste to them, which I’m sure would be enjoyed all year round. So don’t wait for it to be sunny (as you’ll most likely be waiting forever!), and pop open a bag of these Beef Burger crisps, get some dip ready (I'd recommend mayonnaise and mustard), a good film, probably a blanket, oh... and put the fire on!
