Proper Crisps - Made in Nelson, New Zealand
They remind me of a USA deli crisp - smaller - curly - and crispy.
As is the trend these days with gourmet foods, the batch number, the type of potato used, the date - and the name of the person who - stirred the chips is imprinted on each bag.
I tried them at the Nelson market - and they were very moreish.
It is funny what drives people to make something - that is way better than the average product - in this case the owners drove around the USA looking for the perfect "kettle".
The sell locally in Nelson - from various outlets - but can also be ordered online here: http://www..co. /order-online/
I would really recommend them as an upmarket bar snack - as they are dry to touch - as opposed to being oily.
A glass of beer and some would be bliss.
