A Yearning for the UK’s third largest snack manufacturer

I am thinking I need to go home to Northern Ireland. The reason? Well, of course I’d like to see my aged father, my aunt what brung me up and all my other friends and family but, as usual, my stomach is speaking more insistently than my heart. I learn via Facebook that Tayto (yes, the UK’s third largest snack manufacturer and the only one based in Tandragee, Co. Armagh) has introduced a new product. I must get home to try it.

Tayto, once primarily famous for their cheese and onion crisps, have branched out and have this month launched the Rough Cut, described as the perfect example of the thick and tasty crinkle cut chip. Think of a 4-ply Pringle that has been ploughed and you pretty much have the picture. It does seem these delightful savories can be ordered online and delivered direct to doorsteps all over the world, but only in the more mundane flavors. I, of course, have a yen for Bang Bang Spicy Thai. (Tandragee! Who would have thought it?)

So it’s off to the Oul’ Sod for me very soon. I wonder if I can make it before my sister messages me to say that social media wasn’t invented to help the large and plain develop closer relationships with the seductively fat and salty?
