Kettle Chips launch their fanciest crisp yet and they're perfect for Christmas

Think you've tried every crisp out there? How about sparkling wine and chese...

Kettle chips have launched their most Middle Class flavour to-date – Truffled Cheese & English Sparkling Wine.

Want to get ahead of the snack game this Christmas? Kettle Chips' new super boujee, limited edition nibbles will be THE snack to bring to festive get-togethers this year, priced at RRP £1.99 a pack from Tesco, Asda and - soon - Morrison’s.

The hand-cooked crisp maker has its own in-house chef, Phil Harvey, whose job it is to come up with new crisp flavour combinations all day.

“Following the love we received for Truffled Cheese & Champagne last year, I decided that if it ain’t broke, let’s make it even better this winter!” said Phil, who worked with the Norfolk-based Winbirri Vineyard to create his new crisp.

The nutty flavour of the truffled cheese, combined with the subtle fruity and floral notes of the sparkling wine make for a moreish snack.

Good ToKnow’s resident food expert Rose Fooks said she was surprised how much she liked them, “It’s the perfect balance of truffle and sparkling wine. Really unusual! They leave a kind of effervescence on the tongue which makes a great talking point.”

Winbirri produces some of the best English sparkling wines in the world.

Its 2015 Bacchus was recognised as the Best Single Varietal White Wine in the World by the Decanter World Wine judges.

Lee Dyer, head winemaker at the vineyard, said: “We’re delighted to have partnered with KETTLE® to develop this wonderfully festive chip. We’re very proud of the wine we create here and it’s incredibly exciting to have worked with another local company that shares our passion.”
