In the early months of 2010 the people of Earth became increasingly bored with the taste of crisps, their favourite snack, and they called for an improvement in quality. As the year progressed, the continuing global dissatisfaction culminated in worldwide mass rioting and strike action over the summer. The governments and leaders of the world had no option but to call a crisis summit to discuss how to end the striking and heavy violence. The leaders of the world negotiated and agreed that S.P.U.D., the world’s largest crisp manufacturer, would be given unlimited resources and power to create the best crisp flavours in the world. Trillions of dollars were spent on potato genetic engineering, and then, finally, it happened. One mile underground in the company’s top secret potato laboratory, two genes were spliced together and the Super Spud potato variety was born. The result: the Super Spud was to become the greatest taste sensation ever known. The global crisis was solved and the people of Earth could get back to their daily routines; but for the Super Spuds, their lives were only just beginning.
