Yorkshire Crisps launch Oyster, Chilli & Lemon Crisps

South Yorkshire based The Yorkshire Crisp Company, have expanded their range of luxury, hand-cooked crisps, by adding a new unusual flavour to their popular line of snacks

The firms new Oyster, Chilli & Lemon flavour crisps, which are produced alongside the company’s other 11 flavours at their Wales Bar premises near Sheffield, have been introduced following a trend for seaside flavour snacks becoming increasingly popular.

Manager Tim Wheatley: “We noticed a trend in ‘fish and chip’ flavours becoming popular in snacks and so this is our take on that. We think they’re perfect with a chilled glass of white wine or Prosecco.”

“As with all our products, the new flavour is produced from locally-grown potatoes with totally natural flavourings and is free from artificial flavours, colours and preservatives as well as MSG and GM ingredients.

As a company, we are incredibly proud of our Yorkshire roots and we try to incorporate as many local elements into all of our products as possible including our packaging which is manufactured in the county which always feature a different Yorkshire ‘heritage’ image for each flavour.”

The 12 foot steel sculpture of a fisherman entitled ‘High Tide in Short Wellies’ by Ray Lonsdale was chosen to take pride of place on the new Oyster, Chilli & Lemon flavour drum.

The sculpture which was purchased for the North Yorkshire seaside town of Filey in 2012 by philanthropist pensioner, Maureen Robinson, stands watch permanently on Filey’s Coble Landing, facing out to sea and is a nod to the areas fishing heritage.
