Tayto Prawn Cocktail Flavour Crisps (Tesco) By @SpectreUK

Tayto Prawn Cocktail Flavour Crisps

Cinabar found these Tayto Prawn Cocktail flavour crisps in a local supermarket. They may not sound very interesting, but she assures me that we don't usually have these crisps in this country. Tayto are the main brand of crisps in Eire, Southern Ireland. So as this blog is called Foodstufffinds, I thought I better let you know how they taste.

I've seen plenty of "hand cooked" crisps in my time, which is a phrase that frustrates me a little considering it would be very difficult to cook anything with your hands, but never mind. These Tayto are "Castle Cooked", which just makes them sound awesome. I chose to eat them with a roast chicken and barbecue sauce sandwich after a good workout session.

Tayto Prawn Cocktail Flavour Crisps

On opening the packet these Tayto Prawn Cocktail flavour crisps looked pretty much like any other brand of Prawn Cocktail crisps. They had the usual pinkish tint to them. On first crunchy taste they had a strong flavour of prawn cocktail. In fact they were very flavoursome and very nice indeed. I'd definitely have these Tayto crisps again, and I hope Cinabar finds some other flavours for me to try.

Information on the packet; Per 32.5g bag (very precise) there are 170 calories, with 10g of fat, 0.9g of sugar, and 0.5g of salt. Please see photograph for the ingredients.

There are two completely unrelated crisps companies called Tayto. One is Irish, one is Northern Irish (confusing yes!). These are actually the Northern Ireland ones!

The cheese and onion variety are held in very high regard across all of the UK.

Personally, I didn't see what the fuss was about.

Nice but nothing special.

Tayto own Golden Wonder crisps now as well.

Jenna - that is confusing, but thank you for explaining. I hadn't realised we had mixed them up.

Zeddy - I think I saw one other flavour in Tesco, if they are cheese and onion I will pick them up to try them out.

Thank you for the info, it is really useful. I'll still try the Tayto Cheese and Onion if we find them. So far my favourite cheese and onion crisps are McCoys.
