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.
The auditor had bought the £1 bag for lunch but got peckish around mid-morning so decided to tuck in.
He then opened the 150g pack of the own-brand The Best Sweet Chilli Crisps - and found history inside.
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.
