The German word chips comes from English and describes crispy fried potato slices, which we particularly like to snack on in the evening in front of the television. In the United States, if you ask for a packet of chips, you'll be handed the product you want, but in the UK it's a different matter. The word chips also exists, but it means something else. The British call fries chips, the potato slices are called crisps.
The English company John & John has specialized in the production of crisps, even if they are called crisps in the small factory. According to legend, the company was founded by two friends. Both bear the name John, but lead very different lives. One John is a trained potato farmer and has swapped the tractor for the saucepan. He is known throughout the region for his excellent chip recipe and now sells the crispy specialties not only across the country but also beyond. Part of his secret recipe are the fine spices that the other John discovers on his travels around the world. He is a sailor by trade and travels all over the world to track down the most aromatic and best raw materials for his friend's chips. The friends combine their respective specialties and make the best chips in the country.
The irresistible potato snack is made from old potato varieties such as Lady Claire or Lady Rosetta. The tubers come from English soil and are carefully processed. For added taste and crunch, the potatoes are washed but not peeled. They are cut into thick slices with the skin on and cooked at low temperatures in golden sunflower oil. The result is crispy chips with a wonderfully crispy consistency. To give them the finishing touch, the potato slices are refined with exotic spices. The finest sea salt from the Middle East is used for the salty classics . The pepper for the variant with a whistle comes from India: the pepper grows particularly well on the shores of the Malabar coast and on the mountain range behind it and produces flavor-intensive grains.
Chips don't have a very good reputation due to their rather greasy nature, but most of us still can't keep our hands off them. So if you allow yourself to slip up now and then, we recommend the chips from John & John. They are worth the sin and with their fine aroma go wonderfully with a cold beer!
