TAYTO PARK THIS week confirmed that it would be rebranding as Emerald Park at the start of the coming year, marking the end of an era for the theme park which has been dominated for over a decade by the looming figure of Mr Tayto.

While outside observers might find it odd that Ireland’s one and only permanent theme park was built around a cult of personality dedicated to a half-man half-crisp potato hybrid, a less cynical commentator might simply appreciate Ireland’s close bond with its crisps.

While it is impossible to say who is right or who is wrong, Ireland’s intense crisp culture is undeniable. That is why we expect all of you to score very highly on this unique crisp quiz.
