Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without some delicious crisps to accompany that festive glass of fizz. But have you ever wondered what the crisps you serve up say about you? Are you a no-nonsense salt and vinegar kind of person or a crisp connoisseur who’d be unhappy serving up anything less than a bowl of Butter & Mint to your guests? Does unsalted float your boat, or do you prefer a hot sweet chilli crisp?
Fairfields Farm Crisps, makers of seriously good hand-cooked crisps, has crunched the numbers and come up with a short guide to what your favourite crisp flavour says about you..
Salt and Vinegar Calls a spade a spade. Not fazed by food fashions and just as happy eating fish and chips in front of the TV as a gourmet three-course dinner in a restaurant.
Butter & Mint Fancies themselves as a bit of a foodie. Likes to serve a bowl of the latest posh crisp with a nice glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Holidays in Italy or France.
Cheese and Chive Old school. Loyal to their childhood favourite. Not afraid of what people think.
Chilli Orders the hottest thing on the menu and munches on a whole chilli as if it were a carrot. High pain threshold.
No Salt Purist. Prefers their crisps unadulterated by flavour. Wears linen. Loves monochrome.
Root vegetable crisps Frustrated allotment owner. Enjoys getting close to nature and holidaying in their camper van.
