Ten Acre Crisps
If you look at the Crisps nutritional information you will see that these are the UK's first Crisps to market as Kosher Crisps.
From The Jewish Chronicle:
Manchester father-of-two Ronen Derber was frying chips for his young sons one Sunday lunchtime when a piece of potato peel fell by chance into the pan.
Mr Derber picked it out and tasted it, and discovered he had inadvertently made a batch fried Crisp.
The discovery, coupled with his frustration with the limited variety of flavours available to him and his family after they started to keep kosher two years ago, led the 36-year-old to quit his career as a packaging salesman and create a crisp company instead.

Ten Acre Crisps: When the Chilli Got Sweet
A Nose Plunge Test revealed very little of the bag content. And sadly, much the same could be said of the taste. It may have been something to do with the overwhelming sunflower oil influence, but there was not much in the way of spicy flavouring about. The sweet chilli taste was present as promised, but it was particularly subdued. The aftertaste, however, was of the familiar oily sweet chilli crisps I am always grateful for.
Ten Acre Crisps: When Hickory Got BBQ'D
It was difficult to know where to start with this flavour. Hickory is wood, so the flavour description on the bag was presumably attesting a flavour of barbecued wood. That is of course if you take the literal from the description – It would appear Ten Acre’s clever little descriptive terms rather than standard flavour descriptions took them down a path of no return, hence leaving them with this quite bizarre flavour description, which on any other company’s bag may have included some sort of meat, possibly the word ‘Smoked’ and hopefully, as a British brand, the word barbecue rather than BBQ. Anyway, onto the flavour . . . There was no discernible flavour as such, but rather an accompanying taste to the overall taste. There was a certain smokiness with the very slightest sweetness, but the overlying flavour was of mild hickory wood. So, the description was right after all.
Ten Acre Crisps: The Story of When
the Cheese Met the Onion
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a lightly burned onion aroma. Unfortunately, the flavour was a little lacking – There was a slight cheesiness mixed in with an appropriately matched amount of onion, but it was nevertheless a little too muted. Having said all that, when I reached the bottom of the bag the flavour seemed significantly stronger. This would suggest the flavour was concentrated on one portion of the crisps or the seasoning fell to the bottom, and the crisps in that region of the bag benefited more.
Ten Acre Crisps: The Secret of Mr Salt
A Nose Plunge Test revealed oil with a hint of salt. The taste was very oily, but also warm. Very much like a traditional crisp. Even the salt was perfectly balanced in what would be an ideal accompaniment to a dull lunchtime sandwich. Having said that, they were still a bit heavy on the oil side. I should add, these factors always make for a good sharing bowl among friends and family.
Ten Acre Crisps: The Amazing Adventures
of Salt & Vinegar
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a rather oily and almost muted vinegar aroma. This was replicated in the taste, where the oil overwhelmed both salt and vinegar. It was less an ‘Amazing Adventure’ and more a gentle sojourn into the wide world of average salt and vinegar flavours. This was a great shame because it was another one of those, so near, but so far, crisps varieties that very nearly get it exactly right..
