A Google search for “Cork” can bring up some surprising results. Most will relate to the wonderful southern City of Cork, Ireland and others will relate to the Southern County of the same name.
But, there are also other results that pop up on the internet.

The brand is aware of the existence of Cork, Ireland and someone recently tweeted some of their bags in Cork’s well known English Market

Corkers Crisps are made at Willow Farm, Pymoor Common, Little Downham, Ely, CB6 2WA, England.
TheCork.ie is today calling on the powers that be to import these potentially fine crisps to Cork 🙂
