  • Burts Firecracker Lobster – Meaty, Spicy and Delicious

    It’s not the first time I’m saying this… but when it comes chips (I mean, crisps), the British know how to do it. These are actually some of the best potato chips I’ve ever tried. In fact, I love any chips by Burts: a good potato chip combined with loads of flavor. Not like I give a damn, but they’re even fashionably gluten-free (they’re also free from MSG, artificial flavoring and colorings).

    The lobster flavor is intense and savory. The chips are not as fishy as lobster-flavored chips in Asia, which is probably a good thing. They also have some mild spiciness to them which is very pleasant. Even seafood-hating weirdos and meat lovers should give them a try. The innovative flavor is created from the shells of fresh lobsters and sweet chilies. “Firecracker Lobster embodies what Burts is all about: originality, big flavour and twists on the traditional,” said founder and director Nick Hurst.

    Bought in Amsterdam, NL. Made in Devon, UK.

    My rating: 9/10.

  • Burts Pesto – One Love

    I really really really enjoyed eating them. Despite the fact that I’ve been eating all day like a pig, the salty touch of potato chips before going to bed was something I just couldn’t avoid. I’m very glad we had Burts, not some Pringles or Lay’s that night. I love pesto and Burts is one of those brands that never disappoint. The two are even better together. I should try dipping them in the actual green pesto one day.

    Bought and eaten in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (product of the UK).

    My rating: 8/10.
