It is not a new flavour.

A regular buyer of Tyrrells potato chips is swearing off the product after an unappetising discovery on Tuesday (March 28).

Stomper Vale said she bought a pack of Tyrrells Lightly Sea Salted Hand-cooked English Crisps from FairPrice Finest at Paya Lebar Quarter.

The expiry date printed on the pack was August 5, 2023.

"So it was still okay to consume," said the Stomper. "This is the first time I experienced such a bad issue.

"I was a big fan of Tyrrells potato crisps and never failed to purchase them when I was travelling. I was a great supporter of the brand until... I opened this packet.

"I was shocked to find this – an insect stuck on a piece of crisp. That would halt me from buying this any more."

The Stomper said FairPrice Finest has made a refund.

"I trust that FairPrice Finest will look into this. I just want to remind all chip lovers. We know it is not within our control, but just beware before consuming."

In response to a Stomp query, a spokesman for KP Snacks, the British company that owns the Tyrrells brand, said: "At KP Snacks, we take food safety and quality very seriously. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

"On inspection, we believe the object in the image is likely a piece of potato skin."
