The humble crisp has become flavour of the moment after a senior food executive said the tasty treat is now the No. 1 snack food in the world.

 

Speaking at Gulfood 2012 – the high-profile regional food expo that opened in Dubai yesterday – the boss of Pepsi in the Middle East claimed Lay’s crisps, a brand owned by his firm, is now the top snack food brand in the world.

 

Sanjeev Chadha, PepsiCo president for the Middle East and Africa, told delegates at Gulfood’s Food Leaders Summit said the Lay’s brand was “worth a whopping “$9.7 billion to us in the year just past.â€

 

He added: “Fifty-five million bags of crisps were purchased every single day in over 60 countries.†Chadha also revealed some of the weird flavours that make up the most popular crisp in various countries. Mexicans love lemon crisps, while in Thailand one third of sales come from seaweed flavour crisps. Kebab flavour takes first billing in Egypt, while Indians devour packets of spicy Kurkure Masala Munch.

 

In Russia, Mushroom and Cream flavour is by far the top bag, while good old Cheese and Onion tops the table in the UK under the Lay’s brand’s British identity of Walkers.

having my American cousin over here at the moment gives his dad the chance to get some of his fave crisps taken back to the USA.

Marmite/Tomato Ketchup and Branston pickle flavours are on his way.

TOPs used to have an imported potato straw called Pomsticks that I found very tasty.

Since the flood they have become scarce though.

I'd never actually heard of Mackie's crisps before but I see that they do haggis flavoured ones so must try them next time I'm home.

Quote: "We can’t tell you how delighted we were when this recipe turned out a success! The sumptuous haggis flavour combined with the spice of cracked black pepper makes for a particularly more-ish potato crisp. Must be tried to be believed!"
