The snack was chosen following a blind taste test

Irish crisp-maker Keogh's has secured a major deal with airline Emirates.

It'll see an estimated one million bags served onboard the Dubai-based carrier every year.

The Irish brand will be available to First Class passengers only, and was selected by the Emirates Group following a blind tasting of 15 different brands.

They'll be served onboard Emirates flights as an accompaniment to drinks.
