NI crisp fans stick with cheese & onion
Crisp makers Keogh’s Farm have polled local tastes as part of their launch of new multipack flavours, Atlantic Sea Salt & Irish Cider Vinegar and Dubliner Irish Cheese & Onion.
The Keogh’s family-owned firm conducted an online survey across Ireland north and south to find out which flavour local crisp fans preferred, with just 52 per cent of those surveyed in NI favouring the Dubliner Cheese & Onion.
Out of the 10,000 fans surveyed across Ireland, all favoured the Dubliner Cheese & Onion. Some 55 per cent of Connacht crisp eaters favoured the flavour, while it was the preference of 54 per cent in Leinster, and 53 per cent in Munster.
The new additions to the multipack range join the Keogh’s Farm Favourite’s Variety Multipack which launched in 2015 and has since become one of the brand’s best-selling products – each containing six bags.
All Keogh’s products are certified Gluten free.
Commenting on the launch, Tom Keogh, MD of Keogh’s Farm, said: “Northern Irish people love crisps and the classic Cheese and Onion and sharp Salt and Vinegar have always been some of the nation’s favourite flavours.
“Our customers have been asking us for a while now to bring out a Multipack of each variety so we’re delighted to now be able to do so! The response to the new products so far has been very positive and our customers appreciate the great tasting local ingredients used in the production of our crisps which is really important to us.
“Our Multipacks are perfect for sharing with friends or storing in the press at home for all the family. Picnic season is also just around the corner so stick a pack in your picnic basket or enjoy a snack on the road on your way there.”
Keogh’s Farm Atlantic Sea Salt & Irish Cider Vinegar Multipack and Dubliner Irish Cheese & Onion Multipack are available nationwide from May 2016, RRP £3.35.
