Tyrrells is gearing up for Christmas with festive special-edition red and white crisps.

Available nationwide from next month, the Merry Crisp-mas ­sharing packs contain lightly-salted crisps made from Highland Burgundy Red and White Lady Claire potato varieties (rsp: £2.19).

The NPD follows the producer’s launch of 150g bags of salted crisps made with red, white and blue potatoes to mark the Queen’s Jubilee in 2012.
