Mansfield man thinks he's found Britain's biggest crisp - and it's six inches long

A Mansfield man was left stunned after finding Britain's biggest CRISP - a six-inch whopper he's going to keep in a display case.

Daniel Heginbotham, 44, picked up the massive potato snack from a Morrisons store on the way to work last week.

Daniel, 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 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."

Daniel said he usually buys a different flavour from the store in Kirkby - but fate took hold on Friday (Nov 29).

He said: "I'm not sure why I brought them - I was drawn to them that day."

Snack lover Daniel's find still has a way to go to be crowned as the world's biggest crisp unfortunately.

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.
