Did you also grow up in Yorkshire? Then you’ll no doubt remember the superior taste of Seabrook crisps. ‘Once tasted, loved forever’ this delicious crisp brand was my childhood pack-up staple and I have never found a crisp with the same, perfectly cooked crinkle-cut and decisive bold flavours. Cooked in 100% sunflower oil and sprinkled with real sea-salt, each packet also contains above average crisp quantity, a welcome change after continual disappointment of Walkers filling their bags approximately 3% full.
BUT WHERE CAN YOU BUY THEM IN LONDON? Judging by Yahoo answers a lot of people have the same question. So I decided to find out. Seabrook do have a ‘stockist’ finder on their website, BUT BEWARE when I visited the Hackney Tesco, the nearest Seabrook stockist to me, they did not have Seabrook as promised.
So: Where can you buy Seabrook crisps in London?
The Answer: Asda Leyton Mills. They have all the flavours in multipacks, and they are on special offer right now! 12 bags for £2.50!
Was it worth crossing London for a packet of Prawn Cocktail Seabrook Crisps? ABSOLUTELY. 100%. UNDOUBTEDLY. And in fact, I bought 48 packets so I don’t run short anytime soon.
Fact: Seabrook are made from Saturna potatoes, which are a golden-yellow and, experts say, have the perfect sugar content for crisps. Seabrook was named after the founder, Mr C Brook. He chose the name when he found his own name misspelled on a photo as Mr Seabrook.
