Are Golden Wonder Crisps Gluten Free?

Golden Wonder is a British company that manufactures potato-based snacks and is most known for its popular brand of crisps that go by the same name.

Whilst almost everyone knows of Golden Wonder, not as many are aware that the company was born almost 70 years ago in Stockbridge, Edinburgh when local baker, William Alexander started making crisps in the afternoon once he’d finished baking for the day. In a moment of inspiration he decided to name his new crisps after the Golden Wonder potato variety – and the rest is history as they say…
