Turkey & Maple Syrup Crisps (Marks & Spencer's)

We all have had the issue of what to do with the rest of the turkey after our Christmas meals. Make a curry, a thousand sandwiches...? Oh, Piri Piri (genius for a 'Cheeky Nandos'). However, a crisp flavour sounds different, "but there have been lots of different turkey flavoured crisps before," I hear you say. Time for something new? Though these Turkey & Maple Syrup Crisps just don't sound right to me. They sound like something Heston Blumenthal would come up with in his laboratory of crazy flavours! However I have had bacon and maple syrup flavoured snacks before, and I know they were good, so why not? On opening the bag these crisps don't quite smell tight too. There is a heavy hit from sage with a touch of thyme overpowering the turkey and maple syrup. On taste fortunately it's a different matter. There is an explosion of sweet syrupy maple syrup to start with and then the turkey kicks in mixed with the sage and thyme herbs. These crisps were very tasty, especially if you're not thoroughly sick of turkey by now, I'd recommend you pick up a bag!
