A Tayside firm has launched a new flavour of crisps inspired by one of Scotland’s favourite hangover cures.
Mackie’s at Taypack, which is based in Errol, has revealed a new lorne sausage and brown sauce line of snacks.
The announcement has already proved a hit with the firm’s customers, with hundreds taking to social media to comment on the limited edition flavour.
The crisps are due to hit the shelves in the coming weeks – but only 150,000, 150g bags of the snack will be available.
Mackie’s at Taypack commercial director James Taylor said: “It really does taste just like the real thing – regardless whether you call it lorne or square.”
In 2017 what started out as an April Fool’s Day joke turned into a brand-new product when Mackie’s created strawberry-flavoured crisps.
The idea was quickly developed as the company noted the “sweet tooth” of the Chinese market.
And they proved a hit when The Courier put them to the public in Blairgowrie – Scotland’s soft fruit capital.
A haggis, neeps and tatties flavour was also launched in 2019.
