We love a posh crisp – you know the likes of Walkers Sensations, Kettle Chips and those crisps that are made from dried vegetables. They’re dead posh, innit. And when you know you’re getting a more luxurious snack, we don’t mind paying a little more money.

Fortnum & Mason is currently selling a 500g tub of crisps that costs £25. Yup – 25 English pounds.
