The Yorkshire Crisp Company, from Wales Bar near Sheffield, which produces hand-made gourmet crisps with totally natural flavours, is celebrating after winning a prestigious 2022 Great Taste Award.  The Yorkshire Crisp Company has been presented with a coveted one-star Gold Great Taste Award for its Italian Summer Truffle gourmet crisps.

The Yorkshire Crisp Company partnered with Sacchi Tartufi in Italy and co-developed a bespoke truffle seasoning lovingly made from Italian summer truffle. The search for excellence begins with the scrupulous selection of truffles originating from a territory with an ideal microclimate. Acqualagna, in Gola del Furlo, between Urbino and Pesara is one of the few areas in Italy where this precious fruit can be collected all year long.

The Great Taste Awards, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the world’s largest and most trusted food and drink accreditation scheme. With more than 500 experts giving their honest knowledgeable feedback on food and drink products.

The flavour was put under some rigourous tasting with the following feedback given:

We were immediately seduced by the truffle aroma of these crisps. On the palate, we could distinctly discern the truffle seasoning and felt that it elevates these crisps significantly. Evenly sized, thinly sliced crisps with a good crunch. Distinctively truffle on the nose which carries through subtly on the palate but in good balance with the flavour of the potato. Not oily in texture or flavour. A moreish, great quality crisp.’

Said Tim Wheatley of The Yorkshire Crisp Company: “We are thrilled to have won this award with our newest gourmet flavour. Winning a Great Taste Award recognises the efforts we go to in producing our luxury crisps.”

Produced from carefully selected potatoes grown on the Yorkshire Wolds, the crisps are expertly hand cooked in small batches in hot sunflower oil for a few minutes then seasoned with 100% natural flavourings whilst still warm.

Suitable for vegans and gluten free, the Italian Summer Truffle flavour will have you dreaming of Italy.

The deliciously moreish flavour is available in a unique, re-sealable 95g drum which protects these hand-cooked, gourmet crisps from getting crushed, keeps them fresh and looks very stylish in a room, gift basket or hamper.

Yorkshire Crisps are available from most major supermarkets in Yorkshire as well as many independent retailers throughout the UK. You can also order online from their website. Twelve drums of your choice of flavours and mix of Yorkshire Crisps and Yorkshire Popcorn for just £29 including delivery!
