AN artisan crisp producer near Colchester is adding a new flavour to its line-up.

Fairfields Farm, in Wormingford, will launch its brand-new Prawn Cocktail crisps in May after customer demand for nostalgic flavours.

The new flavour will be made using the farm’s homegrown crisping potatoes, which are hand-cooked in house using renewable energy.

In 2022, Fairfields Farm made the decision to make its entire crisp range 100 per cent vegan-friendly and their latest flavour is no exception.

They will use tangy vinegar and sweet tomato to replicate the classic Prawn Cocktail taste.

Robert Strathern, co-founder of Fairfields Farm, said: “We are thrilled and immensely proud to introduce our new Prawn Cocktail crisps. 

“Consumers are craving the flavours of yesteryear so we decided that now was the ideal time to launch another much-loved classic.

“Conforming to our promise of meat and dairy-free crisps, the recipe development team has really pulled it out of the bag. 

“Prawn Cocktail is a personal favourite of mine and I’ve always had it in my head to launch this flavour so I’m delighted that the idea has come to fruition.”

Fairfields Farm's Prawn Cocktail crisps will launch in 40g and 150g packs. 

The flavour will be available to purchase from wholesalers and luxury retailer Selfridges as well as on the brand’s website.
