Could this be Britain's biggest crisp?

Friday was just a normal day for Daniel Heginbotham – until he opened his packet of crisps.

The auditor had picked up a packet of The Best Sweet Chili Crisps from Morrisons last week and he decided to open them for his mid-morning snack.

But when he pulled the packet open, he discovered a huge crisp inside.

Daniel, 44, from Mansfield, Notts thinks that the six-inch crisp could be Britain’s biggest – but he says it’s hard to find out for sure.

He said: ‘I pulled it out and it kept going – it was a lot longer than I thought it was going to be.

‘So I went and got a tape measure; it was six inches long. I was quite happy – it was the biggest crisp I had ever seen.

‘Everybody wants to find a big crisp, don’t they?’

Daniel said colleagues then flocked to his desk to marvel at the find – although some were less than impressed.

He said: Some weren’t that interested at all. But I quickly I locked it away, just in case somebody crushed it.

‘I think I’m going to put it in a little display case.

‘I’m not saying it’s the biggest ever, but you never know. I had a little look and couldn’t see anything bigger.’

Although he often picks up crisps on his way to work, he decided to go for a different flavour this time.

He said: ‘I’m not sure why I brought them – I was drawn to them that day.’

Unfortunately, he does know it’s not the biggest crisp in the world.

The record currently stands at a whopping 25 inches by 14 inches, held by a specially-created crisp housed in Blackfoot, Idaho.

The oddity was made by a team of food engineers employed by Proctor & Gamble in 1991.

A huge Frazzle was also found by Sean Stewart, 22, in Lanarkshire, Scotland earlier this summer.

But the actual size appeared to never be revealed – leaving the door open for Daniel’s record-breaking discovery.
