Kettle Chips certainly keep it simple. And so shall we. Colour coded bags. Colours associated with the flavour. Minimalist design. Plain but fairly perfect.
Kettle really do have the crunch down pat with their Crisps, irrespective of the flavour. The mush stage appears just at the end of the flavour dispersal, while still managing to leave a lingering aftertaste. The crunch was neither crisp and smashable but nor was it hard a rigid.
There was a reasonable balance of dark edges to the potato slices, mixed in with yellow Crisps with lots of spicy looking flecks and dots of powders. The usual curls and bends expected of Kettle Chips was also evident on the thickly cut Crisps, as were a variety pack of different sized oil blisters.
A Nose Plunge Test revealed the essence of the aromatic and flavourful spices of Thailand, but could it match it with flavour? The answer was a resounding, yes. The delicate blends of herbs and spices were not exactly matched by the Crisps, but as those are cooked in oil to make such flavours, the addition of a bit of potato could hardly compromise the flavour. Having lavished that praise a reality check would suggest that although somewhat tastier than their regular Thai Sweet Chilli variety, it also appeared to represent the flavour in a mild and far from tempestuous way.
