Brown Bag Crisps
Brown Bag Crisps are brought to you from our small family-run company in Berkshire. We select the best potatoes, grown especially for crisping and gently hand cook them in 100% olive oil before seasoning them with carefully-selected ingredients.
Our crisps are the first in Britain to be cooked in olive oil, known for being an essential part of the Mediterranean diet.
Brown Bag Crisps have taken many sleepless nights to perfect and we hope you are as pleased with them as we are. It all started in our kitchen, where Phil could be found every night trying out different potatoes, oils and seasoning until he found the perfect recipes.
We have now moved to a far more suitable setting but the Brown Bag ethos remains the same – to produce delicious hand cooked potato crisps where the taste and crunch are never compromised.
We hope you love Brown Bag Crisps as much as we do, please let us know what you think. Thank you for buying our crisps and happy munching.
Brown Bag Rosemary and Sea Salt
It seems somewhat unnecessary to mention that there was a touch of salt to these crisps, but it is so rare that an evenly matched crisp flavouring hits the spot. So, wow, these were really well Rosemaryed (I know). A brilliant intro and an excellent accompaniment to any plain and boring sandwich where flavour is required.
Brown Bag Crisps Oak Smoked Chilli
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a whiff of chilli, which was encouraging. The flavour was just as rewarding, the oak-smoked bit is a little mystifying, but the syrupy sweetness did have a fairly original taste to it. And the chilli kick was evident both during and after. The combination of the sweetness and the heat balanced commendably.
Brown Bag Crisps Lightly Salted
A Nose Plunge Test revealed very little of the mysteries within. Actually, the mystery was why the flavour was different from the last bag of Brown Bag Lightly Salted Crisps I tried. The answer was in the oil used. Previously it was olive oil, which set them apart from peers, now it is sunflower oil, which is much the same as everyone else. The good thing was, Brown Bag have attempted to capture the similarities in flavour, and they have.
Brown Bag Crisps Smoked Bacon
A Nose Plunge Test revealed the smell of smoky bacon crisps. Not smoked bacon, but rather the aroma most familiar with this variety of crisp. The overwhelming value of the flavour would probably be syrupy. Again, there was the familiar smoky bacon flavouring that I expected, which is a somewhat exaggerated example of smoked bacon, but the almost over-powering aspect of the flavour was sweet and sticky.

Farmhouse Cheddar & Onion
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a surprisingly encouraging mix of smells that most certainly included a sweetish onion and cheese. The flavour was a little more disappointing. The cheese was evident, and it was both warm and tasty. The onion was also there, but weak and not nearly combative enough to tackle the cheese dominance. That said, although neither aspect of the flavouring stood out, the combo worked very well.
