Happy Burtsday! Burts Chips turn 18 – April 2015

Here in Devon, we’re throwing a party to celebrate our 18th birthday! No that’s not a fool’s joke, Burts Chips were born on 1st April in a small railway siding eighteen years ago today. So this year we thought we’d celebrate our Burtsday with some of our favourite friends, you, and a few packets of our deliciously crunchy grown-up chips!

Available in wide range of delicious flavours, whether you prefer more traditional chips such as Sea Salt, Vintage Cheddar & Spring Onion or Sea Salt & Malted Vinegar or are looking for something a little more exotic such as Thai Sweet Chilli, Spicy Chorizo or Firecracker Lobster, you won’t find a crisp that packs more of a punch! For those worried about the beach-bod with summer just around the corner, then why not try our healthier Lentil Waves. With fewer than 99 calories per bag, 40% less fat than your usual snack*, these little lentils are still packed full of great flavour and crunch.

Alternatively if you fancy something a little heartier why not opt for the newest members of our family, Devon Roast Beef or Hobgoblin® Spit Roast Steak Chips. We even have a crisp for the Guinness lover in your life, Guinness Burts Chips and Guinness Rich Chilli Beef – perfect when paired with a pint when entertaining mates at home.

Award winning British potato chips, we take delight in our crunchy chips that are perfect for parties, picnics, lunchtime snacking and cosy nights in front of the TV. Hand-cooked in small batches, we use the finest quality potatoes and evenly season them with authentic and natural flavours from carefully selected partners including the Cornish Sea Salt Company, Well Hung Meat Company and South Chilli Devon Farm. Each eye-catching, colourful bag features a proud figure wearing the Burts apron and is personalised with the name of the person who cooked them and the field in which the potatoes were grown. Check out if it was Roddy, Sid or Felix who cooked yours?

Keep an eye out for Burts Chips on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @BurtsChips and #HappyBurtsday! to stay up to date with Burts news and exciting competitions. Alternatively we’ll be behind the bar at our local later, enjoying our first (legal) pints of Guinness and Hobgoblin brews, hopefully we’ll see you there!
