Flavours of Kent


If youre partial to a crisp or two and lets face it, who isnt? then youre going to love a new range of that not only reflects the flavours but also landscapes of the Garden of England..


Kent Crisps, made from locally grown potatoes, introduce four flavours (including a first for the crisps industry Oysters and Vinegar), plus Ashmore Cheese and Onion, Sea Salt and Biddenden Cider Vinegar, and Sea Salt.


The initial range offers 40g packets which go on sale from more than 60 farm shops, delis and independent fine food specialists across Kent. Plans for further outlets include pubs, hotels and visitor attractions in the south east.


Quex Foods, based at Birchington, is behind the new hand-cooked crisps, which contain only natural flavours and colours and are produced using sustainable methods. Managing director Anthony Curwen said: We have selected flavours that celebrate Kent produce and tastes associated with the county. In addition, our crisp packets show imagery representative of the countys fine heritage.
