Their chips are golden and crispy - and they have beaten all their competitors to be named as the best in the area.
JESS French became known as "the bug girl" because of her vast knowledge of creepy-crawlies. But the 25-year-old from East Leake never imagined it would lead her to the world of television.
"I worked as an animal handler a couple of times on some kids' shows and I got a bit of a reputation as the bug girl," says the veterinary student at the University of Nottingham.
"It's because I know loads about bugs and I'm not scared of anything.
"But it had never crossed my mind to be a TV presenter."
Minibeast Adventure With Jess, which begins next week on children's channel CBeebies, will explore the wildlife that lives on our doorsteps.
She says: "Kindle, the production company who made the show, were asking around because they wanted to make a show for kids about bugs, and they wanted a girl to present it.
"My name came up even though I wasn't a presenter and they asked me to do an audition video."
That was two years ago.
"It's quite surreal – it still doesn't feel real, to be honest," says Jess who grew up in Norfolk and studied zoology at University College London.
She moved to Notts to work towards her veterinary qualification.
The daily programme will show youngsters that they don't have to travel to Africa to have an interesting animal encounter.
Jess's enthusiasm is obvious.
"Kids are so disconnected from nature these days and I have this massive fear that because kids don't go outside, they have no idea about how amazing the outdoors is, so they're not going to want to protect it."
The series was filmed last summer, during her university holiday.
"They really threw me in the deep end," she says.
"By the time I got to the end of it, I was looking back at what I'd done on the first day and thinking, 'oh, I wish we could film the whole series again' because I learnt so much'."
There will be 20 nine-minute episodes and Jess will introduce viewers to her minibeasts from a tree-house. She is writing a book to accompany the series, and there's also a Minibeast Adventure app. So will she be a vet or a TV star?
"If I could continue doing TV stuff that was encouraging kids to connect with nature, then definitely, but I wouldn't want to do it to be a presenter for the sake of being a presenter."
Jess plans to stick around Notts, she says.
"Where I live, it's more out in the sticks, and I love it. There are loads of really good places to go, like Go Ape, in Sherwood. I really like living here."
