Bruschette Maretti: Tomato, olives & oregano

A couple of nights ago, while heading home I stopped off in a shop next to my Tube station.

I fancied some crisps, and saw these on display:

It's a crisp done in the style of a sliced mini French-bread.

In spite of the name, this product actually comes from a company based in Bulgaria*.

I quite enjoyed these: they are quite spicy, and have a similar taste to salsa.

What may also be of interest from a linguistic point of view, is the many languages in which the ingredients are listed. These included ArmenianAzerbaijani, and Georgian, none of which you tend to see on food sold within the UK.

* Their name ends in AD, which is the Bulgarian equivalent to a PLC.
