Tyrrells Potato Chips

Mature Cheddar & Chives


Little in life is quite as glorious as the tangy hit of mature cheddar in concert with the wonderfully oniony twang of that most snippable of herbs, the chive.

    i first tried your crisps yesterday sat in a garden centre coffee shop and opted for the mature cheddar and chives flavour and im not joking they were the best crisps ive tasted, the flavour and the texture second to none, even the packet they were in was good quality ,im very impressed ,will be trying more flavours in the future.

  2. susan collins


    i was lucky enough to be one of 100 lucky recipients of a great tyrrells taste box this month and i have to say my family all really enjoyed each of the four different flavours we tried they get a thumbs up from us, many thanks.

  3. Colin Kinchett


    Absolutely gorgeous! the Cheese and Chives combined brilliantly but still the individual flavours were there.
    Excellent to eat on their own or washed down with a nice beer or cider in the garden in the sun!

  4. Mrs. Joyce Oxley


    Really tasty not too oniony either.

  5. David Dammer


    really good tasting crisps but didn’t taste quite cheesy enough for me.

  6. Danielle


    Like a taste explosion of tangy cheesy and chive added to the lovely crispy crispness of the crisps. My taste buds approved!

  7. linda


    Saturday afternoon, Wimbledon watching when suddenly taken with the urge for crisps. Mature cheddar and chives were chosen and they fulfilled the urge for salty, savouriness completely. I am not a fan of cheese and onion but these were nothing like the average crisp.

  8. sarah thomas


    Nice distinctive flavour without being too over-powering. Little bit disappointed with the quantity of crisps in one of the bags.

  9. Hannah


    I went to open the cupboard when I see this new packet of crips which catch my eye, bearing in mind im on a diet, i quickly looked away and shut the door to avoid temptation. 10 minutes later i find myself in the cupboard again sneakily taking the cheddar and chive Tryells packet. I sat next to the bed munching on these delicious crisps feeling so naughty. There are so tasty and really tingled my taste buds and extra crunchy ! i love them .

  10. roxy


    Absolutely the most exquisite crisp I have ever tasted. I love the fact that they are crunchy, have an emence taste to them and are just simply devine. there is a unique balance of flavours within these crisps which I find Interesting as most crisps do not have the correct balance. I would definitely rate these 10/10

  11. Sue Szender


    Not being a crisp fan I was reluctant to try these but I was blown away. They tasted like Cheese & Chives not C&C flavour. I am now a convert and every time we do a big shop we now try a new flavour as a treat.

  12. Nick Phillips


    At first I was confused, and then I was slightly angry. Why was there a Victorian Era depiction of three sisters, the first and third propping up the dead middle one as was the fashion in those morbid times? “Aunty Vera’s dead! Quick let’s get one of those new fangled photograph thingies!” To further confuse me, the picture was on a pack of crisps and the manufacturer shared its name with the android manufacturing uber-corporation from Blade Runner. Nevertheless, I picked up the packet. Being Welsh however, all that English blah blah blah on the back nearly caused me to vandalise the whole display, but something told me, “Why not see what these Englishers are up to these days.” So, home I went and I scoffed the lot. More than that, I now photograph dead people, wear a Cyberman helmet and have changed my name from Dafydd ap Gwynfor to Tarquin Smythe.

  13. Kathleen Hughes


    Great taste of real cheddar, not cheddar flavouring. A number one hit in our house — “Deeeelicious!” according to our son!

  14. Julie Taylor


    I just love these licious lucious crisps.
    Full of awesome flavour and so so crisp and crunchy.
    So moreish that they were all eaten before we knew what had happened!!!
    Next time I’ll just have to buy two packs one to share and one to hide away for those times of sneaky snack attacks!!!

  15. julie teer


    i love crisps and popcorn and would love to be a taster as i try all the new brands that come out and most are disapointing

  16. Robert Edward Jones


    This flavour is amazing. I could really taste the cheddar and the extra crisspeyness of the crisp really added to the experience. Top marks for flavour I could have carried on eating these even if the bag was bottomless.

  17. jane.angela@btinternet.com


    they are cracking! and deliciously savoury.I have tried a few flavors now and not one i dislike.Keep bringing out new flavours!!

  18. Anne Anderson


    I just can’t get enough! There are crisps & crisps! These babies are soooooooo good. I hide them from my grandchildren so I don’t have to share them. (How horrible am I?) No wonder they call me “Naughty Nan” Just the smell when I open the bag is enough to make me swoon on to the sofa & slowly eat each gorgeous cheesy / chivey crisp. Mmm heaven in a bag! Love the pictures on the bags by the way.

  19. tonya duprey


    mature cheddar and chives are packed with a punch the flavour explodes in you mouth as was very impressed as i normally buy a diffrent brand.was totally enjoying munching my way through a bag and i had to answer the door…..when i returned my two dogs were munching there way through the rest of the packet so its a thumbs up from me and a paws up from them great product!

  20. Daniel


    To be honest I quite like my crisps and have sampled many different makes and flavours, although now I’m in my 30′s I tend to be a bit more careful on how many I eat. However these truly are the best crisps I have ever had, simple as that!

  21. lisa


    Tried for the first time today – have tried rival hand cooked crisps before and found them ‘very sharp’ when eating – so I was expecting the same. How wrong! I must say I think they are the best crisps I have ever had – crisp and very tasty. I have had the Cheddar and Chives and Salt and Vinegar – and look forward to trying the other flavours. Thank you Tyrrells.

  22. Saffy


    These are the bst Tyrrells crisps ever I really wish i can find thee popcorns so i can try them and enjoy them aswell!!!!!!!!

  23. Katharine Szokalo


    Off the 4 flavours I was sent, these were my favourite! The cheddar was not too overpowering and the the crisps very tasty and moreish! I would recommend these to crisp lovers! 5/5 Yum!

  24. Marge Ercoli


    What a treat! I was sitting in the London airport facing a 9 hr flight to Miami, needed a special something. Picked a bag of Tyrrell’s, sounded good, and somewhere up among the clouds, I found my “something”. They were soooo good down to last, tip the bag, crumb! Just wish I had bought more!

  25. Alexander David Watson


    Before I begin to write this review I thought it’d be perfectly suitable to mention one thing, I have a packet of Tyrrell’s Mature Cheddar & Chive on hand to analyse each of the four factors as my fingers touch the keys. As of writing this sentence I may have eaten around eight single crisps but was shocked enough to seek out my laptop and forward my thoughts to you at Tyrrell’s. So here goes…

    I think the most fitting word would be balanced; the flavours are powerful but not overwhelming which is really nice. The evidence I have for this would be the potatoes, cheddar and chive running a race in my mouth which none of them seem to win but all are present in, unless of course you’re licking the flavour from your lips which then, the cheddar really wins it. Without naming any other, cheaper crisp brands your hand-cooked crisps actually taste like cheddar & chive which baffled me as a lot of snacks on the market these days taste like the factory they’re made in. Normally, I don’t like to be baffled but the crisp I now hold in my hand has baffled me, but I’m not sure I mind.

    I didn’t buy the crisps, but my friend did purely based on what he described as the ‘hilarious old people’ on the front of the packaging so kudos on the design. Personally, I read through the packet before I opened them and it did put a smile on my face and enticed me to get stuck in. The wording used reflects an above average intelligence and lulled me into believing that consuming the potatoey goodness would increase my IQ tenfold. Overall I’d applaud you on your packaging and the only improvement I could suggest to a near-perfect bag would be to either make it recyclable or reduce its size as it seemed as if it packed a lot of air in addition to the crisps. I’m not dim-witted and I know this is a fairly outlandish request as recyclable packaging in most large businesses is fairly costly if not impossible and that reducing the size of the packaging would create the illusion that the quantity of crisps in the bag would be reduced along with the bag size. Taking this into account I believe you have done a good job with the packaging, its eye catching and looks authentic rather than mass produced.

    This section is merely due to my mother being a vegetarian and my best friend suffering from allergies but I definitely could bring these home to either and find out within 10 seconds whether or not they could enjoy them, so thanks very much for being so clear cut in the ingredients section and allergy advice as it’s nice to know I’m not the only one that doesn’t want to live my life in a shade of grey.

    I both love and hate you for this aspect of your snack. I did not buy the crisps so I don’t have the right to devour them all and there is no doubt that I’ll miss them when I’m gone , I might even lose sleep over it but it goes without saying, they are full of flavour and it keeps me going back for more. I felt like completely disregarding any personal rules of hygiene and licking my fingers clean before double-dipping and going back in the bag for more but I’m more concerned with deciding who I dislike more, you guys at Tyrrell’s for putting me in this situation or my friend for being grossed-out by double-dipping.

    This deserved a section of its own because the crisps sound as if I’m eating shards of the glass and I love it. The crunch alone would keep me coming back for more, it makes me inquisitive but I’d rather not know how it’s done because I’m happy in the belief that such a feat cannot be achieved by mere humans alone.

    Thanks in advance for reading this review but I’m also going to apologise regarding its length. Sitting here I thought that the decent thing to do would be to spend a long time writing this review to reflect my appreciation of how much time you have expended perfecting and obviously fine-tuning these crisps. It’s evident that a lot of work has gone into this product and it has paid-off, if you stumbled across this recipe with your first attempt at making a crisp then you should have bought a lottery ticket on that day. Very well done guys, no doubt this will be a new addition to my shopping list.

    What could be finer than a lightly salted crisp? Well the mature cheddar and chives when one wants a bit of a kick to the taste buds while remaining steadfastly in the this side of heaven snack bracket! Again, the marvelous packaging is beyond reproach and stands out wonderfully in every supermarket aisle. Little hands clabber to get at any packet within reach if allowed!

  27. ANNA


    We have to SHARE them!! Our three children won’t put up with other brands because “they don’t taste like they say they’re going to”! Subsequently we have been known to try cracking open a packet of Mature Cheddar and Chives when they’re out of ear shot (because you can’t crunch them quietly!). Never works… just have to buy double quantities of the large packs!

  28. lisa padfield


    at the moment im suffering from the worst pregnancy sickness nothing stays down.i brought these because they sounded lovely and i have been living of them since they are a life saver im no longer going hungry and they taste of what they say on the packet.

  29. adrian


    I picked up a pack of Tyrrells Mature Cheddar & Chives. From the crisp packet opening to the creamy cheese and tangy chive taste, I always end up with an empty bag before i know it. Absolutely morish. The photos printed on the packets are so pleasing I’m going to collect them all. Now where to find Ludlow Sausage & Mustard?

  30. Louise Venables


    Yummmm *drool* MATURE CHEDDAR & CHIVES…….

    Ok, most importantly, sometimes crisps with cheese flavouring smell of awfully stale, smelly, sweaty feet…. THESE MOST CERTAINLY DO NOT. EVER. They are the best cheese flavoured crisp ever in the world, ever ever ever – and – they smell good too.

    These crisps have a good crunch texture that will keep you reaching back into the packet/bowl for the next one. and the next one. and the next… opps, they have all gone..


  31. Natalie


    Simply the best tasting mature Cheddar and chives crisp that exist!!! Love em :)

  32. Gary Lowe


    They came, I saw, I ate.

  33. hank osasuna


    mature cheddar and chives

    the first time i ate these crisps they made me feel like a world leader. but not david cameron. they made me feel like putting on my military uniform and conquering the world. but not the maldives. as far as i am aware, these are the only crisps on the market which give you do this. to add to that, my chest hairs grew 3 mm after eating these crisps. what else can i say except “whoa baby whoa, take a good look at yourself in the mirror”.

  34. Cathy davis


    what’s better than putting your feet up watching a movie and munching away on a bag of the best crisps in the world. There is no doubt that tyrrells are the tastiest crips on the planet. Maybe it’s because there made in a beautiful part of England or made with the finest potatoes, who no’s.you have just got to taste to believe. Beautiful.

  35. Stephanie Tomlinson


    Had these for the first time on a Virgn Train to Scotland. What superb crisps. Where can I get them

  36. Malcolm Cooper


    I am just finishing a pack of these crisps and I am already getting a craving for more. The flavour and crispness are both really good. Keep up the good work.

  37. mark


    I have just shared a packet of the mature cheddar and chives crisps and i have to say they are the best crisps both from a flavour and texture point of view that i have had for a very long time the most authentic cheese i have ever tried

  38. Joyce


    Sitting in the theatre just opened a packet of mature chedder and chives. The smell is amazing! The flavour is rich and they are scrumptious! Only downfall is there is not enough. Need to get me some more Tyrells!

  39. Nerdycat


    These crisps really hit the spot, not too salty, yet full of flavour and with the perfect crispness. I like them with a salad, or tucked in a ham sandwich.



    These are my favourite crisps, perfectly crunchy, and they are much better than walkers. With other brands of crisps you can literally taste the fat in them, with Tyrells you can’t, and they taste very moreish

  41. Gloria Wilding


    These are just the thing to enjoy whilst
    relaxing in ther evening watching TV
    with a gin and tonic.They are filling,
    thick and dont have the atrtificial
    flavour that many rivals have.

  42. Kev


    WOW…….these tasty treats are addictive. Packed full of proper English flavour leaving you wanting more.

  43. Carol R


    Your delectable Mature Cheddar and Chive flavour….. Oh boy, these are the tastiest! I love them so much that I happily travel 38 miles to my nearest stockist to buy my stash for a week :-) I enjoy the light but crispy texture, the unusual shapes of you handmade crisps adds so much to capturing the flavour. It is unfortunate that my nearest stockist doesn’t carry many flavours or varieties of you fantastic crisps, as I need to try more and more! I will just have to travel further :-)

  44. Kyriaki


    I have lived in several countries on 2 continents. I came across Tyrrells while living in NY couple of years ago, in a health store. I was so surprised by their delicious taste, that i got immediately hocked. Friends were telling me im crazy, im a crisp aficionado, when the first think i asked for as i moved recently to England, was several different tastes of Tyrrells. In NY i had available only a very small selection.
    As i am eating myself through your different tastes, i commemorate you for a great product of which i never can get enough.

  45. J. Aspinall


    Got these in a hamper I won and, BOY!, was I a winner!! Best item in the hamper by far. Best I’ve ever had – by far!

  46. Ebun


    I absolutely love the taste of Mature cheddar and chives, I am in love with cheesey crisps and I have never found a brand that has given such a unique taste. Unlike other crisps which you eat and wish you never did, you get a long lasting satisfaction from Tyrrells. Deffo a big fan.

  47. Vicky Andrzejewski


    I work for the NHS and am rushed off my feet but twice a week, in the evening, I wait for my husband in the Costa coffee shop and my indugence is a flat white and a packet of Tyrrels mature cheddar and chive – I could wax lyrical about the crunch and the sublime flavour but I just do not know of another treat on earth to beat eating Tyrrells crisps.

  48. Georgina


    Tyrell’s mature cheddar and chive make the best crisp sandwiches ever. They are yummy on their own but make a sandwich out of them and you’ve got youself a mouthwatering treat mmm…

  49. Andrew Davis


    Putting the crisps into my mouth an earthy flavour of potato delights my taste buds.This is such a natural taste and is followed by a smooth,mellow, cheddar aroma on my taste buds and then,finally,the zesty flavour of chives .
    I close my eyes and relax satisfied.

  50. Caroline


    Tyrells Crisps… where to start…. The best crips ever invented and from my birth home of Herefordshire… I’m a crisp addict, but Tyrells are something else… Completely obsessed by them. So much choice of flavours and as for the packaging design, love it. They draw you in and you can’t resist. My favourite flavour has to be the Mature Cheddar and chives and the Tyrells Ludlow sausage is amazing. I remember the day my sister surprised me with an assorted bag… :) I could go on and on…. To all out there… purchase Tyrells :)

  51. jennifer peers


    these are my favorite even my cats enjoy these. you have to eat them all in 1 go or there stolen.

  52. Colin Bowett


    Quite simply loveliness! In season quality potatoes with the best cheddar taste in the crisps I have ever tasted. YUM!

  53. Marjorie Paulson


    A great lunchtime snack Home made bread & butter filled with Mature Cheddar & Chive makes a fab butty, Moreish oh yes because once the packet is opened you have just got to finish the lot, don’t tell the kids!!!

  54. Dale richards


    By admission I am a total crisp freak! But it’s not often you pass by such an unconventionally brilliant product like tyrells crisps! They have such a massive upper hand against the boring mainstream brands! I mean who wouldn’t want a zinger yellow crisp packet busrsting with actual flavour and not a boring adaptation of a flavour! An actual flavour! I mean who’s ever had a crisp flavoured roast chicken?

  55. Maureen Cameron


    These have to be one of the best tasting crisps ever, I enjoy this flavour so much i add them to different party dishes and i can add that different flavour to meals too, yes, they can make a difference to meals and my family enjoy trying all my dishes and no complaints from anyone yet, just.. FAB! thats brill.. thanks mum, see you next week lol. Thanks to Tyrrells i say (thumbs up)



    The saddest thing is an empty bag of TYRELLS MATURE CHEDDAR AND CHIVES, it just wants me to start on a second bag.

  57. Katie


    Im not the biggest fan of the cheese and onion variety of crisps , however these are a completely different story.I love how these crisps are jam packed full of flavour and are extremely crunchy and cheesey. Whenever i go down to my local pub with my neighbour, these crisps are our first choice to have with our drinks. Thanks for such tasty crisps , and for converting me into a chese and chive crisp lover!

  58. pat woolridge


    I first had your crisps at bbc good food show and have never looked back !!!
    Ive become evangelical about them telling all my friends and church how good they are. These cheese and chive ones are so tasty and i even use them crumbled on the top of hot dishes such as cottage pie or even carbonara, so scrummy thanku x

  59. Susan


    Cheddar and chives are very yummy
    I really cannot resist
    When I get a grumbling in my tummy
    Tyrrell’s crisps mustn’t be missed

  60. Julie derbyshire


    They taste scrummy and yummy and are good for my tummy. Excellent flavour not to strong lovely cruch when eating just need to come in bigger bags or mummy only bags as eaten by the whole family before I have had a handful. Thank you for making them.
