Joe 'Spud' Murphy's Po'Tayto' Man heralds a few Crisps with a line drawing of the Tayto 'castle' and don't forget the big logo at the top. It's mass produced stuff, but it is very recognisable, if a little basic.
Surprisingly, and although thinly cut, these Crisps did not mush up instantly. Instead there was a gentle and brisk crack and crackle until the mush stage crept in.
These regularly cut Crisps were very thinly cut and did not have many oil blisters - if they had, the Crisps were to thin to not be in pieces.
These were the world's first flavoured Crisps. Yes, Joe Murphy invented flavoured Crisps. It also set the world of Crisps rushing to his little corner of Ireland to investigate. It is therefore very difficult to criticise what was the fore-runner. As it is, the flavour has been improved upon by others, but not by much. There was a thick and warm Cheese and an increased amount of Onion depending on how many we could cram in our mouths at once. A historical and a rewarding experience all in one.
