A man was left baffled after finding a whole potato inside a packet of crisps.
Dr David Boyce, a physics teacher at Uppingham School in Rutland, was shocked when he opened up his bag Kettle Chips only to find a whole potato.
Dr Boyce, 38, was watching the deer rut in Leicestershire when he felt peckish and opened a bag of crisps, Lincolnshire Live reports.
The teacher was bewildered after realising the only thing in the packet, was a potato.
Posting on Twitter, he said: “My mind went completely blank. At first, I thought ‘how is this even in here?’ and then I thought ‘what a champion, this little guy is a survivor – the little potato that refused to be a crisp.’
“I still have it. I have yet to decide what to do with it.
“I thought about scanning it and making a 3D print of it to incorporate it into a statue reminding me of the glorious moment when I discovered it. Not the greatest moment in my scientific career but I’ll take what I can get these days.”

Kettle Chips has been in touch with Dr Boyce, but he says it may be a while before he eats another packet of crisps.
“I was left without crisps – that was sad,” he joked.
Dr Boyce isn’t the only person to have found a surprise in his packet of crisps.
Earlier this year, a man found a Hula Hoop crisp that was a whopping 10cm long when he fancied a snack.
Rowan Ulmand, 19, discovered a long tube of salty, potato goodness in the form of one giant, long Hula Hoop, which measured in at an impressive 9.3 centimetres long.
The Hula Hoop lover is sure that it must be the longer crisp of its kind in the world, and has warned his family to keep their hands off.
Another person was shocked to find just one Wotsit in the bag after he reached for a cheesy snack.
Andy Stubbs, 43, had picked up the packet of crisps only to realise it was full of air.
After shaking it around, he soon realised there was just a single cheese puff in the bag, much to the amusement of his wife and children.
He decided to not open the bag and to keep it as a novelty to make people laugh.
