Christmas dinner means carved turkey falling off the bone, crispy roast potatoes dripping in goose fat and delicious homemade stuffing with aromatic herbs.
So it’s no wonder that indulging in festive foods is what 63% of us are most looking forward to this Christmas.
But what may surprise you is that 56% have voted crisps their favourite Christmas treat, according to a new survey.
To celebrate the launch of Keogh’s limited edition ‘Crispmas’ flavour crisps – Roast Turkey and Secret Stuffing – the Irish crisp producers have shared their findings from a recent Christmas survey of over 1,000 adults across Northern Ireland and ROI on the top Christmas traditions and favourite festive foods.
Commenting on the survey results, Tom Keogh, Managing Director of Keogh’s Farm, said: “Christmas is a big deal for our family, and many others, it has always centred around the food. Mealtimes are an event, a cause for celebration.”
“Our seasonal crisp flavour, Roast Turkey and Secret Stuffing, uses ingredients from the finest local suppliers, as is the case with all our products. The stuffing recipe comes from my mother Denise and will remain a closely guarded family treasure. I will share this much though – the crisps taste fantastic in a leftovers sandwich!”
It seems the market for crisps around Christmas time is thoroughly heating up – as Tesco is now stocking Tayto’s new, limited edition festive crisp flavour – Turkey, Ham and Stuffing.
Tesco Northern Ireland is the only major retailer to stock the crisps locally. The crisps which come in 100g sharing bags, are perfect for family parties and get togethers over the break and will only be available in store from now whilst stocks last.
It comes hot on the heels of the (rather bizarre) Prosecco flavoured crisps by the likes of M&S and Tesco, which sent Twitter into meltdown…
