Default Spud'u'like

Not sure if this is new or not, but in Coles yesterday I found them selling Maris Piper spuds (beloved of chips & roasties) at a reasonable price. Not sure if this is general (they don't appear on the online site), but I thought I would alert people in case just in case.

Think it must be new, I've never seen them here but then I rarely shop in Coles. All we need now is Bramley Apples.

These are the old guard - you need to try chopin spuds - new variety in the uk only sold in m&s - the taste is on steroids...

The UK has Jersey Royals as well. Fairly irrelevant to us in Aus. Sadly.

Unfortunately jersey royals have lost the plot. The taste isn’t so good any more and they are growing them larger, not sure why but nah...

there are seceral new sweeter varieties of small spuds for salad etc, charlotte is one if them.

I'm pleased to hear Jersey's aren't so good any more. It'll stop me from missing them. We generally have a choice of white washed, red washed or white unwashed potatoes. Oh we do have Kipler, they're alright - An Aussie style of Jersey Royals but not great.

This takes me back, when I was in Edinburgh in 2001 we used to say Spu-jella-key
