Darling Spuds stars in
BBC's The Apprentice
Darling Spuds has just appeared in the hit BBC show The Apprentice. We were one of two small British crisp brands that the trainees were asked to sell in Germany. We are delighted that Apollo, our team, won the crisp challenge and we had great fun on the day that we spent filming. We think they made the right choice creating English flavours and the Stilton and Paprika was a particularly inspired choice! Thanks to team Apollo and The Apprentice our sales in Germany are flying!
Good Housekeeping makes Darling Spuds the winner
In Good Housekeeping's Food News section Darling Spuds was judged to be the best gourmet salted crisp. Their verdict was: "Our tasters loved their rugged, natural appearance. There's a good bite and just the right amount of salt."
Darling Spuds look to launch brand new flavour
In our never-ending quest to bring you the most interesting and lip smacking new flavours we have spent the early part of 2010 scratching our heads about which taste avenue to explore next.
Through a barrage of brainstorms, a ton of tastings and journeys to the far flung corners of the world we think we have come up with a flavour that is hugely exciting and will put you in mind of your favourite Mediterranean holidays.
We're not quite ready to push the button on it yet but watch this space!

Crisp packet fan boasts 9,000 empty bags in her collection
It seems collecting empty crisp packets is quite a popular hobby. Hannah Conduct has come forward to reveal a whopping 9,000 empty bags in her collection, which she has gathered over the past 30 years.
The marketing manager, who insists she is 'not a big crisp eater', said her pastime began during one of her regular family holidays on a canal boat.
'We were sitting at a pub on the canals one day and I was eating pork scratching-flavoured crisps. My dad said I should keep the packet.
'I never did but, for some reason, I started collecting crisp packets after that. It's the kind of thing children do' said the 35-year-old from Acton, West London.
'It doesn't rule my life,' said Ms Conduct. 'They are up in the attic in folders. It's a total history of packaging and design. There's a strange beauty to seeing the design evolution.'
