Blog: Darling Spuds

Happy Valentine’s Day, one and all. What do you mean, "commercialised twaddle", you old misery? Even if you don't rate it as an important date in the romantic calendar, surely a reminder to do something nice for your partner is A Good Thing.
If you really don’t buy flowers or chocolates on Valentine’s Day, how about some posh crisps? Just launched today, Darling Spuds are the sophisticated sister of Salty Dog and come in four subtle flavours. The idea is that the flavours do not overwhelm the potato itself, which can be a problem with lots of crisps.
We tend to view spuds as a commodity product, and this product aims to reinstate them as a quality ingredient worthy of some individual attention, not just a carrier of more exciting ingredients. Nice one. Good enough for Valentine's Day if you ask me.
