This autumn sees the release of a brand new flavour of crisps from household name Kettle Foods, this time in collaboration with UK-based Winbirri Vineyard, offering consumers a treat ahead of Christmas with their cheese & wine combination.
Flavoured with truffled cheese and a splash of English sparkling wine, these limited edition Kettle Chips provide a savoury, nutty flavour from the use of truffled cheese, which is then balanced by a gentle fruity note from the addition of the wine.
Innovation Chef, Paul Hovey, spoke of the latest creation: "Following the love we received for truffled cheese and champagne last year, I decided that if it ain't broke, let's make it even better this winter. Having lent a hand supporting Lee at Winbirri with his Bacchus harvests on many occasions, I've known the team at the vineyard for a number of years. Not only are they just down the road from us, but they also produce exceptional wine."
Speaking of the brand's pedigree in the UK, he continued: "Norfolk is a proud part of our brand heritage and with most of the potatoes we use grown within 30 miles of the Kettle cook-rooms, it seemed like the perfect partnership. The crisp, clean flavour of Winbirri's English sparkling wine perfectly brings out the intense, rich truffle cheese seasoning and I'm thrilled to introduce this very British chip to the Kettle range."
Lee Dyer, head winemaker at Winbirri Vineyard, said: "We're delighted to have partnered with Kettle to develop this wonderfully festive chip. We're very proud of the wine we create here at Winbirri Vineyard and it's incredibly exciting to have worked with another local company that shares our passion for getting the best out of local produce.
"We hope everyone enjoys time with friends and family this festive period, sharing this delicious limited-edition Kettle chip, and maybe even a glass of Winbirri."
The limited edition crisps shall be launched this autumn and be available in most major supermarkets.
