The Crisp Bar is the brain child of Caroline Oakley. The idea was born out of the frustration from having greasy hands after eating bags of crisps and having to use two hands to eat them. Being a new mother, her time and hands were both full.
Caroline began to develop her idea early in 2003 and filed her first patent application in July of that year, which was granted on the 1st August 2007. Her second patent application was filed on January of 2006 and granted in December 2010.
The Crisp Bar went on to be featured on Richard Hammond’s, Five o’clock Show (ITV), The Paul O’Gredy Show (Channel 4), BBC News, as well as being reported in the national press and winning Caroline Oakley a Special Recognition Award from GWINN (Global Women Inventors & Innovators Network) and winning an Award at the British Inventors Show.
The patented Crisp Bar does not use a binding agent in its manufacturing process so you can still enjoy Britains favourite snack without fear of any additional additives altering the flavour. Although primarily conceived as a potato crisp bar the patent process embodies all root vegetables so new and interesting combinations could be developed.
