Keogh’s new flavour revealed: Irish Chorizo and Cherry Tomato
Irish potato producers launch new limited edition flavour crisps
20 October 2016 | 0
Fans of unique Irish flavours will love Irish Chorizo and Cherry Tomato, the brand new flavour from Keogh’s Crisps. And after sampling the new flavour here at ShelfLife HQ, we can confirm its scrumptious credentials!
The limited edition flavour is the result of a carefully crafted collaboration between the Gubbeen Smokehouse in Co. Cork and Keogh’s Farm, producers of Irish potatoes and crisps.
Available later this month in selected stores, for a limited period, Irish Chorizo and Cherry Tomato is the first new crisp flavour to be brought to market by Keogh’s Farm in two years.
Tom Keogh, managing director at Keogh’s Farm, said he “knew right away” that the team in Gubbeen would be an ideal match for Keogh’s. “Fingal’s passion for locally-sourced and home-cooked food fits perfectly with the Keogh’s ethos and we are proud to be championing another superb Irish supplier,” he said.
He also confirmed that lots of taste tests had been conducted (lucky testers!) and he is confident Irish Chorizo and Cherry Tomato ticks all the right boxes for “a new, sophisticated flavour”.
Gubbeen’s Fingal Ferguson said it was “a pleasure to work with fellow Irish farmers” and “the end product more than lives up to the high standard that consumers have rightly come to expect from Irish food producers!”
The new flavour is hand-cooked on the family farm in North County Dublin and, as with all Keogh’s products, are certified gluten-free. Existing flavours in the crisp range include Sea Salt & Irish Cider Vinegar, Shamrock & Sour Cream, Roast Beef & Irish Stout, Dubliner Irish Cheese & Onion, Irish Atlantic Sea Salt, Sweet Chilli & Irish Red Pepper and the seasonal Roast Turkey and Secret Stuffing.
Keogh’s Farm is welcoming customers to give their feedback on the new flavour, and limited edition packaging, on their social media channels. Search @KeoghsFarm on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Keogh’s Irish Chorizo and Cherry Tomato crisps are available in 50g or 125g in participating stores nationwide later this month. RRP €1.20 – €2.89. For further information on Keogh’s Farm, visit www.keoghs.ie.
