For those who want to stick to the classics, Burt’s Potato Chips are the one for you.
Deliciously thick-cut and hand-cooked in Devon, England, these crunchy British chips will transport you to the windy seaside towns of England—complete with seagulls and vinegary fish & chips at every corner.

Always a good time to #supportlocal, Crusty’s selection of chips run the gamut from the archetypal Salted Egg Potato Chips (S$7.50) to the ever-popular Mala Salted Potato Chips (S$7.50).
Like any fine purveyor of chips, Crusty’s has an array of salted egg fish skin flavours and gourmet popcorn flavours at your disposal.
One flavour that I’m most fascinated by has to be the Tomato Salted Egg Potato Chips (S$7.50). Fried eggs with tomatoes have to be one of my favourite dishes growing up.
I wonder how Crusty’s managed to marry the tangy, piquant tomatoes with the indulgent salted egg flavours. I can’t wait to get my hands on these and many more of Crusty’s wares.

5. The Golden Duck Co
The Golden Duck Co is serious about their chips. Their lean but mean assortment is undoubtedly a testament to that.
As one of the pioneers of salted egg yolk gourmet snacks, you can be sure the folks at The Golden Duck Co know their stuff.
Their Salted Egg Yolk Potato Ridges (S$7.50) are hefty and beautifully-ridged, so they hold more of that salted egg goodness in each chip. If you are an ardent salted egg fan, there is nothing better than more salted egg bits per bite.
If potato chips bore you a little (how could they ever?), there is no harm in trying The Golden Co’s Singapore Chilli Crab Seaweed Tempura (S$7/110g pack) and Singapore Salted Egg Crab Seaweed Tempura (S$7/110g pack).
The seaweed squares are roasted, coated with their house-made tempura batter, deep-fried and then topped with REAL crab meat. I mean, it doesn’t get better than that. Explore The Golden Co’s entire range!
