Get stuck into summer snacking with Burts Chips – May 2015

Whether the sun shines bright or the inevitable British rain dampens your BBQ, you can still be proud of your efforts no matter what you serve with Burts Chips. There’s a flavour to please every hungry partygoer so whether you’re barbecuing, picnicking or grabbing a quick snack on your way out the door, make sure you do it right and tuck into a bag of Burts’ deliciously thick cut potato chips.

Like all proud parents, Burts love to shout about the newest members of their family: tasty Devon Roast Beef and Hobgoblin® Spit Roast Steak Chips. If you’re planning a BBQ, these two no-nonsense flavours mean your guests can get their chops round a really meaty bite even if your skills on the BBQ don’t quite go to plan! And what’s a party without some (responsibly consumed) beers? Guinness Burts Chips and Guinness Rich Chilli Beef are the perfect pairing for a pint of the good stuff.

Alternatively, Burts’ legendary core range has something to satisfy every taste bud. Traditional Sea Salt is a classic all on its own or you can add a little something to it; we’ll leave you to decide whether seaside-inspired Sea Salt & Malted Vinegar or sophisticated Sea Salt & Crushed Peppercorns is the perfect partnership.

For the more mature types Vintage Cheddar & Spring Onion provides the perfect opportunity to be a little cheesy and if you’re feeling a little more adventurous try hot and exotic Thai Sweet Chilli, meaty Spicy Chorizo or indulgent Firecracker Lobster; you won’t find a crisp that packs more of a punch!

Each eye-catching, colourful Burts bag features a proud figure wearing the Burts apron and is personalised with the field in which the potatoes were grown and the name of the person who cooked them. Hand-cooked in small batches Burts Chips use the finest quality potatoes and evenly season with authentic and natural flavours to make your summer snacking special this year.

Look out for regular competitions across the Burts Chips Facebook and Twitter (@BurtsChips) channels this summer giving you the chance to win packets of their tasty chips throughout the summer.
